i currently use a forty seven brand hat (black 'BAMA hat with the script "A" logo on the front) to cover my noggin. i always buy a new one for each season, so i've only been wearing it since last august. it only gets worn on game day saturdays until after the season; then it gets put into normal wear mode and i wear it every day. the previous hat goes into storage. but i'm thinking of getting an akubra snowy river hat. i really like the look of those and i want something that will help keep my head a bit warmer in colder weather. plus the fill brim will help keep the sun off my neck and ears as i tend to burn easily.
