Default What hat(if any) do you wear?

So i lost my baseball hat somehow and i'm looking to buy a new hat for fishing. i think i'm not going to use a baseball hat anymore as there is little neck protection and my neck got it good last time. So i'm wondering what hat, if any, do you guys wear when you go fishing? and recommendations on brands would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

I wear an up-downer..... like Lefty
I like the fold down back not so much for the sun, but to deflect a cold breeze
Columbia sells them, but you can get logo ones from TFO and Sage,... maybe others.
I have three in nylon, cotton, and gore-tex

Hi ssjchar,

I like a hat with a cape. Gives the best protection for the neck and top of the ears. Another good tool is a bandanna. It gives great protection to the neck and can be used for a bunch of other things including first aid. On a hot day dip it in water and wear around the neck. The ones sold by Feather-Craft are extra large.

Here's a view on the topic- The Ultimate Warm Weather Fly Fishing Hat? It Might Just Be a Boonie Hat... | The Trout Underground Fly Fishing Blog

I go with a large palm leaf hat on the local rivers,

and a ballcap and buff combo at the coast.

The palm is like a sun blocking beach umbrella, but the ballcap and buff combo is less likely to get blown off by coastal winds.

I own lots of hats.

Sometimes I go with the ball cap. If I need additional sun protection, I wear the Buff along with it.

I have an up-downer that is made by Patagonia. Unfortunately Patagonia stopped making them.

I have a boonie-hat that i got from a flea market.
