Re: SPF Golf HatsI 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.
