Default Hats

Sounds like a small thing, then why have I had to buy and try so many ober the years to find a good one?

The hat I now have is almost perfect, except it is twenty years old and about worn out.

The brim big enough to keep the rain off of my glasses, soft enough not to interfere with the scope. Mine used to be water resistant, it was impregnated. Soft enough to mold to my head, really no front or rear to it, just plop it on the noggin. Soft enough to stuff in a pocket.

I prefer just a plain old olive drab color, thinking about Gortex.

Any recommendations appreciated. Trying to save some money by not buying something I'll never wear twice.

I wear a Fedora style hat and to meet the requirements of the fluorescent orange law I have an orange band around the crown that attaches to itself with Velcro. Keeps the rain and sun off my face.
