[pct-l] Headcover Question

I've been using a Sunday Afternoons hat for a couple of years; I don't
recall which model, but it doesn't have a neck flap; they are available with a
neck flap. I've safety pinned the back part of the brim up, so it doesn't hit my
pack and push my head forward. When I turn it around to keep the sun off my
neck while working, it makes me look like Gabby Hayes, or one of those other
old western movie characters. Some of you are saying, "Who the hell is Gabby
Hayes?" Others of you may be able to tell me if that's the correct name.
It also has a lanyard, to keep it on in a wind; no matter where you hike
you're going to need that lanyard from time to time. When I don't need the
lanyard, I just invert the hat, then put it on with the lanyard up in the hat,
basically laying on my head.
It has mesh side panels, so ventilates some. I've also washed it in a
washing machine, safety pins and all, with no ill effects. Mine weighs about 4
oz with the pins. It's a good hat; I've worked and hiked in it.

way around; by the time the sun gets below that brim, it's early or late in
