When you’re spending a lot of time outdoors, covering your head can offer a number of benefits. Hats and other head coverings can help you avoid sunburns, reduce glare, keep your head dry in the rain, and stay warm when it’s cold (or cool when it’s hot). However, just about every outdoorsman we meet has a different preference on this form of apparel, so we’ll briefly discuss some of the more common outdoor headwear choices below.
Baseball Cap – The classic ball cap has a contoured brim to shade the front of the face, and can be found in virtually any color, pattern, or material you want.
Beanie or Watch Cap – This stretchy form-fitting cap comes in a variety of materials and thicknesses, and can easily be rolled up and packed away. However, it lacks a brim.
