Thread: Trying to find a decent stalking hat....

  1. #1

    Trying to find a decent stalking hat....

    I went in a nearby RFD earlier to try to find a decent dark olive coloured, waterproof and breathable hat. In the traditional deer stalking shape.

    He had about 50 hats but none were up to scratch.

    Anybody point me in the right direction......?

    Cheers

    Tilly hat. Wax one for winter and hemp for summer works OK for me

    I have an old leather Australian Bush Hat that I bought at Scottish Game Fair 15 odd years ago. I believe it was made on the shores of Loch Ness. The leather is quite thick and it's waterproof and breathable at the same time. I have worn in snowy weather and under the hot African sun - it just works. It also shades your face well so don't bother with a veil. If it's windy I tend a flat tweed cap.

    The Tilley wool hat is nice for winter, but if it's really cold I grab the possum fur beanie.

    Barmah hats are nice - they even make one that's waterproof and camo!

    Flat caps solve no purpose other than keeping the sun out of your eyes.

    Of course if you want to be really stylish, buy a loden trachtenhut

    A roll up packer hat like the Orvis Packer, is nice for all weather.
    When it is really cold and drizzling, I like my thick wool hat by Filson. Comes in charcoal, brown and green.
