Ex Officio Buzz Off hat

BuzzoffAnother mandatory piece of gear for extended outdoor activities is a sun hat. This one does the job well, with the added benefit of being treated with Buzz Off insect repellent. As if my B.O. wasn’t enough.

It’s super-light and fast-drying, made of thin but fairly durable nylon. The brim is solid, and there’s a drawcord in back for snugging up the fit. The cape has a button to secure it in front of the neck. It would be nicer if it were a snap, but that’s easily changed.

The nicest touch is that the cape wads up inside without any trouble, making a seamless conversion to a normal (i.e. non-dork-looking) baseball-style cap.
