I wear a Tilley hat. After many years, I had one wear out. They sent me a new one for free as their warranty states. The newest one has many years on it. I like the chin strap design. Mostly I wear it with the strap stuffed in the top, but if the wind comes up, it's quick and easy the pull the strap down.
The biggest reason I wear it is for sun protect on my face, ears and neck. It does great in the rain, unless it's a big, long downpour. Then it will get soggy, but I still wear it, wet as long as it's not cold out. When it's hot, I dunk it regularly to keep my head cool.
Karma is like this: If we set causes in motion the effects come back to us.
