    The flag is backwards.

    The field should go to the flag's own right.

    This REALLY PEEVES me about the ones on the uniforms now. What stupid idiot decided that it's more important to have the flag look like it's going forward than to follow the flag code?

    UGH, that really gets my goat.

    Breathe breathe, worked myself into a tizzy just there. Now back on topic.

    Been wearing an all cloth ball cap (not a trucker's cap) with US Rugby on it to bike commute lately. I snage a picture of it later for ya.

    I wear a cotton Propper Boonie in khaki during the warm weather. It might look a bit silly, but it works great. It's like you always have your own shady tree with you, no matter where you go. No annoying sun on your head, ears, eyes or neck. Also works better with sunglasses then a regular ballcap in my experience.

    They are also cheap to buy, last ages and you can crumple it up and stuff it in a bag or pocket without worry. Why aren't we all wearing them??

    It's not too tactical / mall ninja looking. The uninitiated probably think it's a weird fitting bucket hat :) I want to get some other camo options as well like ACU or desert digital... but that's probably too much for every day wear.

    (Now that I think about it... I should probably take a pic of it on my head. Will update later.)

    I have the version without the flaps. I wear it over a fleece watch cap in freezing rain. Has stood up well for about ten years.

    This is my current favorite. Not me in pic. It is from the website where I bought it.

    All I've seen are single-fabric boonies; sorry. You're thinking of something like a reversible boonie? Fisherman by day, Seal Team Six leader by night ;D

    No - glare reduction under the brim.

    Ah OK. Propper makes darker ones like Navy and even solid black as well. If you really want a light color hat with darker underside of the brim, you could always use a darker fabric paint to darken it. The brim on boonies is thick enough that it shouldn't bleed through to the top side. Or else a local tailor might be able to cut & fit some black cotton to your brim if you want it done the fancy way :D

    So, this is tacticool or anything, but if ever you see me outside of a formal or work setting, there's a good 75% chance you'll spot me with this hat:

    See, me and this thing got history. It ain't going anywhere.

    I have a small collection of fitted LA hats that I rotate through :).
