This photo pretty much sums it all up.  It's a wool crusher that I picked up many years ago at a yard sale for $.25.  The shirt has worn out, the band was given to a friend in Washington and the bow has been sold, but I still got that hat. ;)

For outdoor use I have a cotton "booney style hat with safety pins in the loops, extra shoe laces and a Raven feather to make me look daper. In winter it is a double knitted wool tuque.

No my favorite hat is one I had made at a PowWow, it says Mohawk and Proud. Got myself into a few altercations as I live in Anishnabee country and apperently they still hold a grudge. So I did the only thing I could do under the circumstances..... I got another one  with LARGER lettering :rofl: :woot: no point in losing such warm"feelings" :angel: :rofl:

But the fargin MICE in my hunt camp trailer ATE PART OF THE BRIM!!! Jeez.

 

The Fabled PC (my long-suffering bride of these last 47 years) bought me a better one.  It is an Ow-strilian bush hat.  The upper part is mesh, so it allows airflow.  EXTREMELY comfortable!

I currently go out with a baseball cap.  I have a wool fedora-style hat, but it is way to warm most of the time.  My wife has a Gore-Tex Ultimate Hat that she likes.  I have been debating between purchasing one of those or a Filson packer hat.

Day to day, I wear a ball cap of some kind (got lots of 'em--I'm wearing my Margaritaville hat right now).  I have a boonie hat that I like alot, but my favorite is an old felt fedora that has aquired alot of character over the years...

I picked up another hat and it's gonna be my warm weather favorite.  It reminds me of a cap I wore back in the 60s.  Comfortable, keeps head cool and has a cool little cache inside.

I usually were a woodland boonie or a baseball hat. If it is cold I will wear a knit hat.  I just bought a fleece hat (like a knit hat).  I haven't used it yet, so I am not sure about it.  Time will tell.

A Windpro Extreme Hood in winter and a ballcap for summer (sometimes complimented with a bandanna.)
