What's a good /out/ hat? What style, any brands you like? What are you wearing? I've always worn a bucket hat but am considering getting an felt Akubra.
>>2256631I just wear a staw hat for sun, beanie for cold, and hood for rain
>>2256631Based Snowy river.The Cobber Pedy/Riverina Akubra style is my favourite /out/doors hat. I wear a Snow River for more formal wear
>>2256631a FINE WOOLEN BERET
>>2256666Pic is actually a Tablelands, but it looks just like a Snowy River from the photos hey
>>2256631I usually wear my American Hat Company felt cowboy hat when /out/ in cooler weather and a straw cowboy hat in warm weather. I just have a cheap straw hat but it does the job.
>>2256631that $4 ballcap you bought 10 years ago
$10 straw hat from ace is hard to beat, but I have honestly considered a felt cowboy/outdoor hat, but just have no idea what to get.
Jeep wool watchcap and a whatever model leather stetson
>>2256631Something cheap, comfortable, lightweight, crushable, and I won't give a shit if I lose it.
>>2256631cant be beat
Take the tweedpill lads
I've worn a lot of cloth hats. To match a baseball, you want about a 4 inch brim or longer. You can get that from Akubra for a felt but most cloth doesn't go out far enough without flopping.Get an Akubra Sombrero and bash it.
Baseball cap when it’s hot, beanie when it’s cold. Highly recommend the Columbia beanie I’ve got. Think it was £12 or so and it’s extremely comfortable, not itchy, and fits nicely (I have a big head).
>>2256631If you want a Fedora or outback style of hat go with a Stetson, Akubra, or smaller brand. Add your own hat band that you like and some stampede strings. Go with a lighter color in the hot months.
Can confirm the Coonskin cap is the best option for Canadian winters. Although it is pricey so a cheaper option is a trapper's hat or Ushanka.During the summer, I wear a tilly hat or cowboy hat, depending on how larpy I feel that morning.
>>2256666>grew up in Tumbarumba/Laurel Hill>local Rodeo every year>town of 2k swells to 8k for the event>80% of people are wearing Akubra'sIt's kinda based to see.
Wearing this rn and anytime I go outside pretty much
>>2256666I like the Fedora style crown, the Territory has the same brim width as the Riverina, almost bordering on a little too wide. But offers great sun protection on the sides of your face and down your neck. Cattleman is their best selling style, I like the bounded edge.
If you're looking for a summer hat to keep the UV off ALL parts of your face, a baseball cap will not cut it. You need something with close to a 4 inch brim. If your're working outside and bending over, wider is better. No reason to buy a $200 Akubra, plenty of cheap hats that do a trick. If the brim is wide, you want some stiffness in the brim so the wind doesn't blow it around. There is a company called Shelta that makes hats with a stiff windproof brim, theyre kinda silly looking but its better than aging your facial skin. Remeber, UV damage is cumulative and irreversiblePic is Akubra Territory
https://www.sheltahats.com/collections/sun-hats/products/the-condor-performance-sun-hatHere is Shelta's widest brim, I spend some time on the water in the wind and sun and am thinking of getting one. People also really love Tilley hats, expensive, but super comfortable and well made. (Pic is truck drivers face, guess what side always faced the sun)
>>2256631Depends on the weather. In summer and rain, I wear a Rhodesian army kheko hat that I waterproofed with silicone and Greenland wax. It's light, comfortable, and keeps the sun off me. In cold weather, I wear a reproduction M43 alpine cap made of wool, also waterproofed. It's quite warm and comfy, and the fold-down cheek flaps do a good job when combined with a scarf.
I emailed a bunch of companies recently looking for an all weather /out/ hat. Akubra can't tolerate any water, they will fall apart and they won't honor warranty. Akubras are for posers and instagrammers only. Stetson will back them rain hail or shine, but they're a bit expensive and USA made for whatever that's worth to you.Buy a nice leather Barmah and it'll last you forever and through every scenario and they're cheap to boot. I ended up with one of these and love it.

>>2257014>>2257045Something like this. Wide brim preferred. Mine has a mesh for the sides so is very cool in summer.Winter is beanie time although I am debating whether to try some other options. Brims are nice for out.
>>2256631I wear a ballcap because I'm not a larping shitheel. Currently wearing an olive drab Bear Archery cap.
>>2257731>olive drab...anon...I'm sorry, but....
>>2257733It's a neutral color and it came with the bow I got my nephew.
>>2257735Ok RobinHood whatever helps you sleep at night just don't be hollering at kettles no more.
>>2257748What the fuck are you talking about
Get a hat that best expresses your inner self.
shemagh wrapped on my headit can be used for other stuff when I need it
>>2257825shemagh is comfy. what kind of climate are you using it in? I find it works well configured as a kind of hood in the desert for keeping the sun off your neck and face but wondering if you're using it more for warmth?
>>2257824Seems like this board isn't far from that, judging by the posts ITT
>>2257389>Akubra can't tolerate any waterDisgraceful as fuck. Fur felt is supposed to be practically water proof. Their material is either total shit or they're just playing it safe.
lightweight hoodie and a cap provides a high level of sun protection
>>2257389Excuse me sir where did you hear akubras fall apart in water? I've been wearing mine in the rain and it's fine. Countless people on forums and elsewhere online say it's fine in the rain. What's the dealio?
I have a Snow River. Kinda wish I got the one with the vents holes on the side but I think I can just DIY that. David Morgan has the best deals online for Akubras - I believe it was only $150 or so.The band was tacky so I replaced it with a nice horse hair band and a cute turkey feather.Works great in the rain. However I found the curved brim to be extremely annoying in the sun, so I just flattened it today. Otherwise if I turn my head to the sun, my eyes would get washed by light, which is not the point of a hat.The band on the inside that touches your head is very comfortable, and it stays on even in the wind.I have a basic inexpensive straw hat for summer, but it's made of poly so it doesn't fall apart. I am thinking about getting a Portuguese style hat (round crown, shorter and flat brim) for going out to town. The Snowy River is my chore and hiking hat, and I could dress it up I guess but I have some pretty formal clothes where it would look out of place with.
Pic related, it's the Portuguese style hat I kinda want. I guess it's called a bolero. The person who makes them on Etsy allows major customization of color.
Stormy Kromer hats are all a man needs.
>>2258014I live in British Columbia. I usually wrap it around my neck if I need warmth, but I'll usually just keep it on my head unless it's raining.
>>2258823i saw this hippie girl on the train one day wearing a shemagh on their head is that you?
>>2258793nice, i had a green one of these but accidentally left it at a mall after seeing a movie feelsbadman
got one of these earlier this year, all wool so it's finally getting cold enough to wear it
>>2258793So true I from November to March I wear mine every day
>>2258857No. I'm a dude. Also not a hippie.
My /out/ hat to let everyone know im super cultured.
basic ass hat for work and all /out/ings
>>2256631It's far from a fashion statement, but the sun in NZ is harsh af, and a lightweight neck gaiter is seriously the way to go, especially if you're out fishing or walking over snow.Good to dip in fresh water and wear damp when it's super hot too.Eliminates the need for sunblock too, I fucking hate sunblock.Got heaps of shit for it recently but just ignored it and carried on - after a day on the water, even with sunblock, I was the only one that wasn't full lobster that night.
M43 field cap, history larp aside they're really comfortable, the windbreaker flaps are great to avoid nettle stings on the neck and break wind, and they look sick
VKBO ushanka for cold weather. Mad comfy and folds in different ways like optimus prime
>>2258889I have a hat like that as well but mine was from Cabela's. Its called the Outback or something, but I dont know if they still have it because I bought mine 4.5 years ago. I never found it to be to hot. I wear it while I do yard work in the summer and I even wore it a summer when I was sailing the Florida keys.My favorite part about the hat was a hot Tomboy mountain guide complimented me on it several times.pic rel
>>2256631i rather rock a surplus kff i got from a wog market or a bunnings straw hat. pic rel
Flecktarn boonie in the summer, Yukon cap in the winter.
>>2260101Yeah but did you get any a qt tomboy gf to compliment you with it?All jokes aside nice hat. Although I think it looks a little bit to formal for me to take out.pic rel is my second/backup /out/ hat. I know a couple other anons expressed their dislike for baseball caps, but they are useful sometimes.
>>2260105its a similar hat. my dads an old digger who served and showed me some tricks. Basically when its 40c you submerge your hat in a creek and it becomes incredibly easy to shape, you simply put a dip in the front and back and it protects your face pretty well and gives you some bush mechanic style air-conditioning
>>2258149>>2258217Straight from the horses mouth. I was pretty surprised to be honest. New owners, new materials maybe?
>>2257736That still scares me
>>2260135Who knows. My best guess is they know their customers buy them for the looks. Felt can deshape when wet - wool felt more so than fur felt. It is not likely to be a practical problem, but hey. Just buy another fur felt hat, akubra is overpriced anyway.
>>2258889don't your ears get cold?
>>2257014I had a boonie for years. Good kit. I like my Tilly better.I'm going to tin it (otter wax) when the waterproofing wears off.
>>2257825I carry this and my Tilly. Shemagh suck in the rain lad.

>>2256631I never understood the concept of cap or hat. If it is as visor to avoid sun in your eyes it is Ok. But they make your head warmer. Sun rays accumulate warm on your hat or cap and it creates a microclimate of warm because of no ventilation. So, what are they for?
>>2262524>squatting in front of a curbcool instagram shot

>>2260135>>2260189Ild say it’s because they lose shape, ive had the cattleman for years and it’s been soaked through multiple times. First thing I did was submerge it in a bucket water and let it dry on my head while mowing the lawn.
>>2263270Well first of all, if the air temperature is actually higher than your body temperature (skin temperature, which is lower than your core), conductive cooling doesn't work any more. Which means that insulation actually keeps you cooler - provided your real means of cooling, that is evaporation of sweat, still works. Desert people often wear thick but loose clothing - it insulates, but it's breathable.Second, clothing stops sunrays. These constitute an extra source of outside warmth and even more of a reason to close that heat path. If you wear a thick hat (or even just a cap over your hair) the hat or cap gets very warm (you know how hot things in the sun can become) but because it insulates, your head below stays cooler.Third, IR radiation can actually penetrate your skin and enter your head to some extent, which causes additional problems. People get sunstroke even when their body temperature is actually normal, because the heat input in some areas of the head is higher than their circulation can handle. Hats stop some of the IR radiation and prevent that.
>>2263974How much did it lose shape?
>>2263984Just sags a bit, pretty easily fixed when it starts to dry out just remould it. I reshaped the entire crown of mine because I wanted it to lean back more.

Boonie hats all fucking day. Double points if it's in a camo pattern that no sane military on earth would use, pic related (and I own this exact one)-Wide brim for sun protection-not rigid so you can just stuff that shit anywhere-makes you look like a gay steve irwin-strap so you can clip it to your bag or not have it blown off your head-absolutely abuse it in dirt, wash it off on a river and the water will soak in so you can stay cool on warm days-absolutely dogshit cheap, will last until you die as long as you don't set it on fire or stab itThere's like 8 or so virtually similiar hats with different camo patterns in my closet. Definitely recommend getting any camo pattern that isn't leaf/tigerstripe so you can avoid being mistaked for a vietnamfag.
>>2256631Just wore my new Akubra cattleman out this weekend. Would recommend, feels high quality and good fit. Would also suggest a chin strap, it fit well enough for most of the wind but when it picked up or caught a bad angle I almost lost it
>>2256631>tfw hat size is 64cmI've given up on hats.
I'm thinking about getting a Stetson Carson. I really like the thinner, stiffer cowboy hat type felt but don't want a full-on cowboy style since I already wear too much western stuff in a place where it isn't common, so I think this is a good compromise.
OTC River Guide. Found it at a local leather shop.Never owned a hat before and apparently I have to wax it... All in all I'm liking it.
>>2256666>>2256736Ausfag here. Looks more like a cattleman to me, but what would I know. I've had mine 25 years so shit's probably changed

Otherwise I use a crushable 4 inch wide brim Propper Hat. 100% Nylon does really well for stopping rain. Offers somewhat wind protection, and obviosly not the best for warmth.

>>2262372>>sun protection>>eye protection>>keeps head cool/conceals sweatyhead>The first two can be achieved with sunscreen and sunglasses, but why use two things when one will do?I understand your logic there mate. The problem here is the sun is so fucking harsh - burn time can be literally minutes on exposed skin. On the water or snow, you can literally get burned up your nostrils from the reflection (not every day of course, but it does happen.)
>>2258221This is fantastic. Thanks for sharing. I agree that the curve is a bit harsh on some Akubra hats, I might do the same if I get a snowy river or one of their hats with a less curved brim

A lot of them might be functional for horseback, but most people aren't doing that. Just don't look like one of those guys I avoid on a trail.
I just got the Akubra cattleman and took it /out/ this weekend. So far I loves it, but will probably want a chinstrap for the windy days, don't wanna have a 200 dollar hat end up in the harbour

I like Blackie's hat, what kind is it?
My nephew gave me this hat as a gift, super comfy, but I mostly use it with the face cover rolled up. Last winter I had people yell at me while I wore the hat with the face cover down. I guess it's the same thing as wearing a balaklava in public, people will think you are some black person about to do a robbery.

>>2264330I own this exact hat and i've had it for five years. It still looks good though weathered. I've literally never waxed it but you are able to tell now that it needs it. The wax is gone for the most part and you can feel it.It has spent a ton of time outside (live in oregon) rain and shine as i worked on a farm for 3 years and this was the hat i always wore, i also go rafting, fishing and whatever else with it. It's a little hot in the summer, on a hot day you'd be better off with a straw hat but i still wear the outback hat, besides that it's a fucking great hat. It's seriously the only hat i wear or own anymore.

You don't even know i'm there unless your fucking dog runs up on me. I dont give a single fuck what you or your type think of my hat or anything else in the world. I just hope you'll get a blood infection from the ticks dropping on you, thanks to your CO2 exhaust.
>>2260296this. I have one. It is useless. sun out? need a brim? too hot. cold out? ears cold, neck cold. it's great for larping though. Buy a cheap straw hat for heat and sun, and a wool beanie for cold. in between, you don't need a hat.
>>2260102Ed Geen appeal.
>>2261500If you really have autism, your not going to wear a hat.
>>2262371Nothing is wrong with olive.
>>2262434Tell me, what's it like installing tires at Walmart?
>>2265899I do this. I picked out my own fabric at Joann's to make 2. It's grey and specled/blotchy like tree bark. 49" x 49" cotton. The Mrs seamed it. Could be used to wrap food, as a sling, stop bleeding, filter water. I wear it when out or into the store, whatever. Really good to keep dirt, insects and spider webs out and not get cut up in brush.
>>2279712Ok, kiddo. Go wear your cringe camo surplus trash outside. I rather wear a proper hat.

>>2256631>>2257217the akubra territory is literally what i wear everyday at work>linemarker, painting roadsit is the best hat you could possibly get, also it is very stylish and dominance asserting in australia, the bigger the akubra the better, the territory is one of the biggest
>>2279214Anyone else weigh in?
>>2279214Looks useful if it's cold out but you're worried about the sun.>>2260068>>2279113What do the flaps look like when they're in windbreaker mode? I can't find a picture of that configuration.
>>2279214I like it. Kinda looks like a sherlock holmes silhouette but I think it would look good on some guys. That said I like weird hats and pull no bitches.
>>2280163>What do the flaps look like when they're in windbreaker mode?Ridiculous. The flaps come down to below your ears, and that's where the strap lies as well, somewhere between your mouth and nose. If you tuck it below your chin the flaps bellow to leave your ears open. You need to twist the strap somewhat awkwardly to make everything fit snug.
Just bought a Stetson straw Gus (Montana crease) hat because I live in Florida. This is my first western hat.
>>2256631Don't give a fuck about rain?>Straw hatGives a fuck about rain?>Boonie or any canvas-like Always wide brimmed. Can't go wrong
>Bunnings hat / Boonie hatPeople actually doing stuff outdoors>everything elseLARP
>>2272456There is a company called Shelta hats. They make boonie style hats with an added piece of plastic in the brim and they claim the brim will not flop up to 40 mph winds or so. Review videos say it works great.
>>2279956based territory chadpost pic?
>>2282836>Plastic brimThe awesome thing about boonies (and Tillys) is you can fold them down into something tiny. If I'm I. Gale force winds the least of my worries is a rigid hat brim.
Does someone have (second-hand) experience with Mont Bell's meadow hat?
>>2271136There are holes under the tiny flaps, which allow you to hear better than if it was just solid cloth and no miniflaps. Depending on the model the earholes can also be used with headphones (though that's more of a military concern).
What is the windiest you'd wear a wide brim hat in?
>>2260140Dressy cover fucking dress, and mark time march.
It's nice and it only cost $2
>>2283308A small plane could take off without needing to roll down the runway in those kinds of winds.
>>2256631Caveat: my base kit always includes an Arcteryx hooded rain jacket.Cold weather (<20F)? Knitted wool beanie. I make my own, and if it is raining I raise my hood over it.Monsoon rains? Raise the hood.All other weather? Pure beaver cowboy-style hat. These are extremely hard to come by and are usually very expensive, but they retain form and shape extremely well even when soaked, provide great shade, and are very breathable. For anons in the SW, head to Virginia City, NV, and once you're done drowning yourself in Bloody Marys and visiting the tourist trap shops, head to the Virginia City Hat Maker (Les Chapeaux Boboulin). Do not select the cheapest option. While his 80% beavers are perfectly serviceable, for around $600 you can get a 100% beaver hat custom made for your head while you wait, any style you want, and the quality is such that your grandchildren could wear it with a rebuild every 20 years or so. Go for a >3" brim to keep the elements off of you and provide shade. I wear mine doing ranch work and hiking and it is absolutely wonderful in any weather condition that doesn't involve extreme winds (which can blow it off your head) or cold (it keeps your head warm, but doesn't protect the tips of your ears).Added bonus: the hatmaker, a cool as fuck French dude, offers lifetime maintenance on your hat. Get it dirty? He'll clean it for free. Damage the lining or sweatband? He'll rebuild it for free. Want it reshaped? Yeah, that too. Most hats you find in western stores are either wool felt (garbage) or hare felt (short life span). Even those advertised as beaver hats have so little beaver pelt in them they might as well have waved a carcass at the hat. To get a mass-manufactured high-content beaver hat usually runs $2500+. This dude will literally style one in any fashion you want (he offers input to make sure it will look good based on your face and build), and throws in a custom leather band for free.
>>228330850-60 MPH gusts is about the point where I take off my cowboy hat and slap on a beanie. Anything less, and I can generally keep things manageable by putting a finger on the brim when it gusts up. Still, if you're worried, you can always get a chin tie built into your hat (some come with them) and the wind would have to be so strong that it would take your head off to remove your hat.For my needs, if it's that windy, it's usually cold enough that I want to protect my ears, so I don't bother with chin tie/strap faggotry. I work the backside of the Sierras where the winds can get so bad it knocks over semi trucks and RVs on a regular basis, and I've never had my hat blown off my head. Then again, mine is literally custom fitted to my head, so your results may vary with something store-bought.
>>2257247Sounds kind of larpy but seems practical, do you have any pics of those hats?
>>2261532>Aussie made over Chinese made.What's the difference?
>>2285180Akubras are generally shit because they're hare fur felt hats, but at least the trim is decently made. I own one as a beater hat for when I know it stands a considerable risk of getting fucked up.Chinese hats, or chinese sourced fur is a shitshow, because it is rarely what it is advertised to be. There is no price point where you will ever get what you pay for. With an Akubra, at least you know what you're getting. With any fur product from China, that is never the case: the fur is likely whatever garbage they swept up from behind the nearest restaurant.This is a notorious problem there: it is common for them to sell dog or rabbit fur as every manner of other species. If it isn't sourced from a western country and assembled there, don't buy it.For hats, beaver felt is #1. Some level of camel hair is acceptable for stiffening, as is some level of hare. Full hare is fragile and not waterproof. Rabbit content (China) is trash. Any Stetson under $500, for example, is likely trash, and I'd take an Akubra over them any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Better than either option is to find a nearby craftsman who sources beaver blanks from western sources such as Canada or the US: you'll pay a bit more, but your hat will last a lifetime. Not many people are in that trade anymore, sadly.
>>2285324Hemp > amadou > leather > everything else.Nice blog city slicker.
>>2286580Are you literally retarded? I wear these hats daily as I tend to herds, shovel shit, and toss more hay than you've seen in a lifetime. Hemp or any straw is easily damaged and you'll fuck it up quickly. Amadou is retarded. And leather doesn't breath along with getting trashed by rain. There is a reason those mountain men wore beaver hats. The oils repel moisture, they're breathable, and the fur is sufficiently stiff to provide shade under the brim. They are truly all-weather hats. I would challenge you to wear a leather or onions hat under the type of conditions I work in: you wouldn't last a day.
>>2285113I'm English and I'm seething at how good that hat sounds for our climate and how cool getting something like that made for the money and upkeep perks it hasBut I know I would be mercilessly mocked (I don't care about their opinions but attracting attention from mouthy arseholes is easy to do), and subsequently have my hat almost immediately stolen by deanos, chavs and crackheads as soon as I went anywhere urbanWhat would you recommend for cold rain with mist and wind? I was looking at rattan with something velcro'd into the crown as a rainproof lining, with an insulated layer as needed and a buff or ear warmer band for cold ears
>>2256631I bought a leather hat with croc teeth lining the outside when I was in Darwin so I wear that and run around the woods LARPing as Crocodile Dundee shooting abos.
>>2286749I just wear a baseball cap I sprayed with some fabric waterproofer. Keeps sun out of my eyes, hair out of my face and keeps the hood on my rain jacket supported
