    I dig the mesh panels. i like how its only two so it doesnt just look like a trucker hat. but i can get on board with the solid panels too, i worked on a trail crew last summer and would take a siesta during lunch with my hat over my face and the sun would shine through the mesh so i might ask them to make me a solid hat aswell. either way i dont think ill ever wear another hat again.

    As so many before me, I started wearing something on my head because of my receding hairline. For the time being i wear an old worn out army style cap from Stetson - it's my favourite.

    Contacted GR they said the solids are going to be production and I may have to wait till then.
    I asked if one could be made for me and they said they don't do custom work.

    GR Tac hat

    That's odd, They do custom work frequently. I know a group of guys who have custom Radio Rucks based on their needs and profession requirements. Granted they work for OGA but stilll.

    At least the solids are in the pipeline as a production model.

    I've been waiting forever and a day for a sand color GRTAC

    While I'm not necessarily a head-gear person, I do like to always have a buff with me because of the many ways you can wear it on your head (and hands if not in use)

    [​IMG]

    My hair easily flies away (and not in a good way) and I'm not fond of hair products.

    What I do is whenever I'm in my car, I try to wear a skullcap just for about 15 mins (or the duration of the ride) so when I get to wherever its I'm going to, my hair will be all George Clooney looking LOL

    Then the buff is there whenever I still need to force the hair down ;)

    I'm bald and I have to say that the UV BUFFS are great for keeping my skull from being sunburned.

    Sandstone GR Tac Hat would be great.
    OGA?

    OGA= Other Government Agency

    It's the term used when someone works for one of those agencies that goes by letters but you don't want to or can't disclose which one

    I wear a variety of hats but my favorite is a Kangol 504, a newsboy type flat-cap in grey wool. It's dressier than the baseball caps I used to wear, and provides equivalent shade. I tend to get a lot of favorable comments about it.

    Also, since my grandfather favored the same style of cap, my dad gets a kick out of seeing me wear one (especially since I look very much like he grandpa did when he was young).

    While I rarely wear baseball caps any more, I tend to favor plain black fitted caps (I hate caps with the adjustable plastic band, yuck!).

    While I used to favor beanie caps in the winter time, they don't tend to stay on my head since I grew my hair out (it's heavy metal length nowadays).

    I also have a selection of warm weather outdoorsy hats. I have a couple of boonie hats in various colors, a mesh cowboy hat, a straw cowboy hat, and a bucket hat. And I've got a OD green fedora for those days where the weather is cooler.

    I like hats!

    I dont typically wear anything on my head, unless it's cold or I'm out in the sun.

    If its cold I have a "tactical" beanie (Tactical = Black, with Velcro patches on the front, top and back)

    If its sunny I have either a grey Oakley flex fit cap, or a wide brimmed cotton hat, that scrunches up into the corner of my camera bag, and was given to me as part of the gear I had to wear to visit an industrial site (along with a long sleeved shirt, sunscreen, safety glasses, bug spray and an induction manual)
