Best... Hat...Ever... Trust Me

My GI "boonie" hat wasn't cutting it hiking in the blazing Colorado Southern Front Range... it wasa a'right but too snug in "correct" size, got hot/sweaty, and my face STILL got sunburnt.

In contrast, this Kakadu Townsville hat is freakin' awesome! Make that "!!!" It's accurately sized (unlike the NUMEROUS ((grr!%^$)) GI hats I've tried/owned), lightweight (ditto), PLUS offers tons more widebrim shade, breathable (ditto), and extra extra comfortable. Win-win all around.

"Packable"???? I doubt it. The brim held a wrinkle when I squeeezed it. I'm not gonna stuff it in my carry-on or anything. But it arrived in a giant roomy box. Be realistic.

I never even wore hats before (just the past year+ for hiking, not everyday), but the sun here just is too brutal.

The Kakadu has a a rugged outlaw (rocker cowboy vigilante??) look that both me and my wife appreciate, ask me how I know, wink wink nudge wink wink. TMI?

In summary, for being oudoors in in full sun and extreme heat, I cannot stress what an excellent product this hat is! And BTW it arrived in 2 days, which jives with my previous STP experiences. Yeah!

To stress that last sentence, OMG Fing Yeah. I am very pleased with this purchase.
