    Guilty as charged. I like some form of peak or brim on my hat when driving as it keeps the sun out of my eyes much better than the sun visor...

    GRRRR... It is not a cowboy hat it is an Ausie Bush hat. Much bigger brim.
    Keeps the rain off the neck, glasses and shoulders.... Only worn when weather is inclement...

    I've owned a couple of A Classes where you have a half acre of glass in front of you and when the sun is low a hat is the best thing to keep it out of your eyes. Not a cowboy hat though, it has to be a Tilley:Smile: [​IMG]

    Proper job the Tilley, have a couple on board the boat. Floats, doesn't degrade in sunlight, lifetime guarantee, name and address inside the pocket should you loose it......

    .............Proper job

    We have loads in Suffolk and Norfolk that wear hats when driving, and we give them a wide berth, :Wink: especially on market days the only day most of them go out.:Doh::Rofl1::Rofl1: Bob.

    I wear one every day

    I wear one every day.. I have done for years and years.. I have 4 cowboy hats.. one is straw working hat I bought in Aberlene in Kansas, I have a rodeo 5XXXXX beaver which I wear at Malvern I also have a Stetson - gunslinger which is for best wear.

    But I wear a Minnitonka made (USA) hat every day when I go out on the scooter walking Ezzie and often at shows it is real waterproof.. beaten up and old .. as lived in.

    I drive often with a baseball cap as I have a large window screen and it allows me to knock out the sun by tipping it down a bit... the screen blinds are not big enough.

    I also have an old South African hat made out of the skin of a Kudo.. very soft and waterproof that I sometimes use (not often).... hats are to me as important as shoes are to SWMBO.


    Do not wear them in bed.

    in bed.. ? that's for me to know... :Wink:

    A bit off topic but why do (older) people put white sun hats on the parcel shelves of their car? They are always trilby type things.

    It shouldnt , but it winds me up.:BigGrin:
