    TT, I'm getting it narrowed down. So far I like a couple of hats on the Akubra site and a couple of Filson hats. Regardless, Buff will be along for the ride.

    This is a good subject because no one thinks it will happen to them but skin cancer can happen. My Uncle over the last several years had a couple places removed off his face. Within the last couple years it came back and he has had to have major surgery with lymph nodes removed as well. I wear a ball cap only with sunscreen but this thread will have me looking for a better hat.

    JCW, my last surgery was what is called Mohs surgery, and it was on the nose and not fun. They had to take a donor graft from my forehead to fill in the hole. Had the same type surgery on my ear - from wearing no hat or just a baseball hat. Going without sunscreen and a hat is not worth it, trust me.

    As a teenager, I always fished with a Western stetson style hat...even in New England. Today, my usual fishing hat is a Tilley, but my Oilskin Madison Packable from Original Outback is the best for all weather protection. During certain times of the year, and in certain areas that I go fishing, I pull out my brilliant hunter's red ball cap. It may shock a few fish, but at least I'm not so mistaken for a deer.

    I've been partial to this hat in cooler weather - Minnetonka - Outback -
    heavy duty and durable - adjustable wire brim - and you can stuff it into a backpack -
    and an excuse to post this pic yet again (blatant self-promotion)

    I love this hat by OR. it is light weight and the piece that protects your neck and ears snaps off when you don't need it. I keep the shade with my fishing gear and wear the hat every other day. In fact since I've started losing hair I wear it every single day.

    I found a link for the company that makes the closest thing to the Orvis Lochsa River Hat.

    The 'Scout' is almost identical, even made from the same techstraw material. I think I'll order one of the 'American' hats myself.
