OK, I know we have a "Western hat" thread. But for some of us that means felt not straw. July and August roll around here and even the diehards here dump the felt for straw some days. Unusual for us to not be over a 100 by this time in July but we haven't seen it yet this year. Better than the 115F we've had previous years. Typically I am a Sunbody straw hat wearer. Better yet soak them several times a day in the sink or a water trough and you are good to go a few more hours of high temps. This year I found a new Resistol I like a lot. It is light, notably a full 5" brim and open crown. Pretty much the style and brim what I wear year around. So hard not to like. Fitting for a good hat, a full C note and some change most places. Too stiff in the wind to stay on your head some times but they do offer some decent shade @ 5" and that big open crown with woven vents breaths well. A quality leather sweat to add some stick 'um and keep the brow dry. I'd not noticed them prior, they are called "Tuff Anufff', 20x Shantung Panama.
