I decided to just post new and interesting SPF protection golf hats. If you see other SPF style hats post it. (Sorry InTheTwenties..didn't mean to hijack your Tilley specific thread.)

Re: SPF Golf Hats

I've never heard of those before. I'm going to have to look into these because the courses here in Colorado are getting way too hot, even in early afternoon.

Thanks for posting these pictures. As I have rounded the corner to age 50, I've become more sensitive to the potential of contracting skin cancer and I have been looking for a hat with a brim around it. While I haven't liked what I've seen in the market place, these hats look a bit better than those I've seen. I'll look them up.

You're right. It's a cool hat. But I prefer one without a logo. Also, Norman's hat is black, a color which absorbs heat, even though it is vented. I prefer a lighter color which reflects heat.

Re: SPF Golf Hats

I just posted the first image I found. I know they make a natural color and probably white.

Also the new ones dont have a big colorful Shark logo. I think they are silver or something.

Well, that's good to know. Very eighties. Now, if only those hats will make me look as rugged, tall and handsome as Greg Norman, I'll buy a dozen!

Re: SPF Golf Hats

Those became very popular around here for a while after the (now ex-) football coach started wearing them. I still see a few out on the golf courses from time to time.

His was a white/off-white with the school logo on it. Kind of decent:

When I think of a hat, Stetson is the first name that pops into my head. Arguably the finest hats made today.

I've worn them for most of my life, and I even have my great-grandfather's from the 30's (it's weird, but he and I have the same sized head, he passed a couple months before I was born)

They offer several golf and outdoor hats now if you're not up for getting in touch with your cowboy roots. I'm leaning toward a new Airway for golfing and around other outside activities (been wearing a ballcap on the golfcourse). I'll keep my beat up old straw hat for work.

Re: SPF Golf Hats

Wow, I didn't know that Stetson made golf hats..I always wanted a "cowboy" Stetson but just never have the occasion to wear one..they are one of the best examples of "cool".

Holy sh%t!! Who knew Stetson had a $5,000 cowboy hat? I didnt at least. Ya I guess they do make quality products. Those golf specific hats are nice.

Re: SPF Golf Hats

I was in Perdido Key this week with the family. I played golf, ate some seafood ( and some see food ) and did a bit of shopping with my wife. We went into a store in Orange Beach and there, in the center of the store, was a nice display of Tilley Hats. I tried on several and liked the Airflo model the best. There are a variety of models. Most advertise that they float, can tie on, repel rain, block UV rays, won't shrink, and come with some insurance against loss as well as a lifetime guarantee. It is washable. It even comes with an instruction manual ( for those goofy goobers from Bikini Bottom who just do not have sufficient reading material for the bathroom ). I chose the Airflo because the brim was not overly large, yet large enough to provide adequate coverage, and there is a mesh ring just under the top which provides the airflow. I bought it on Friday afternoon, and wore it today after we returned home.

I played eighteen holes this afternoon in it and I must say that it more than met my expectations, which is to say that I forgot, for the most part, that I had it on. The brim did not interfere with my swing ( would that something might improve it, though ). I really did not notice the vent, perhaps because it was so hot and and humid. I removed the hat about three times during the round to mop my face and head. At this moment, it has replaced my baseball type, conventional golf hats.
