Frank, where did you get those pictures? I got the impression (possibly mistaken) from BigCliff's posting that the Sonora Sombrero was no longer being made.

Hi Neil,

Well now that is a secret. Here is a link to the site. It sounded to me that it was no longer available so that is why I ask if this was the one. Their Super Safari Cap looks interesting also. Its hard to find a good Suplex hat. I wish I had The North Face Hat when I was Bear hunting in Alaska.

Not sure what you would call it but it is from Orvis, and I picked it up several years ago. It is a wide brimmed het, but not like a panama hat. I think it is made of suede or some other heavy material. It gets a little hot in the summer, but has vents in it. You can kinda see it in my avatar. I have looked for it several times in the past couple of years but cant find it, many people have commented on it.
Maybe he should wear a bandana like the flats guys do, so they dont have to worry about getting sun screeen in their eyes.

I had to do a little research to figure out that my hat is a Barhma style hat. I gather it's a type of fedora. In any case, it's broad brimmed, dark brown, and looks like something you'd see in the Australian outback. Got it at Cabela's on clearance. I consider it my one concesion to vanity.

BigCliff & Frank, it appears from the website Frank linked to that in fact this hat is for sale, in both colors (although I'd note that when you click on the More Info button, a different hat than these comes up, so I don't know how an actual purchase would go of it). Anyway, I'm always interested in a hat that will breath well in desert or Gulf Coast-type climates, so I'd be interested in any hands-on experience anyone has in how Outdoor Research's Sonora Sombrero copes in hot weather compared to their Nor'wester Sombrero, which is what I have.

I have one of those helmets that holds two beers with the hose from each going into my mouth.....just kiddin'. I can't believe no body's gone there.

I have a felt outback style hat that has fold down ear flaps for when it's cold.

Vented outback style somewhat like the Cabelas for summer when it's hot.

If you're looking for a good quality hat, buy from a good quality hat store. My dad actually owns one in Cleveland (shameless plug), called Mike the Hatter, mikethehatter : Western Cowboy Hats – Men’s Hats – Stetson Hat – Kangol Caps- Straw – Fedora, and we ship all over the world. Below are two that I really like, the mesh is good for summer and the twill is good for colder weather. Barmah makes good quality hats in lots of good styles.
