Eric and Roxine in Egypt
The Hats that I took to the middle east turned out to be among the most important things I had on my travels. Imagine temperatures above 50C and a high desert sun.
I have owned seven or eight Hats, mostly T3s. I teach sailing and the T3 is the best on-the-water hat, bar none. I have lost two, worn out two, and would not sail in anything else.
