Legionairs' Disease

I thought that they were called Legionaire Hats.

Geez mate , you'd feel like a bit of a goose wearing one of them, the gun happy types would probably go for it though.

Gung ho dermatologists...

Might stop the back of my neck from peeling and those fancy dematologists from slicing me up more than necessary.

An Araphat Hat in a more normal colour. Must be the different spelling



Araphat Hats (Auscam, Desert, Olive, Blue)

That new spelling is working on Google!



Westernex - Product Search





These guys make them in white (and other normal colours!). Although disturbingly the Desert Camo version is growing on me

Frillneck - Araphat - Wraphat - Urban Turban Experience

Gotta admit... those do look like great sun protection. I think it would be great if they took a wide brimmed hat, rather than a baseball cap and put the "curtains" around the back of it. Baseball caps don't keep enough sun off the face.

Like one of these?



With hindsight I probably should have done some more Google searches BEFORE posting the original question

LOL - Sean they have hats with wide brims that offer full neck protection see below - they also add a little lift while sailing - might increase boat speed a knot or so

All headgear (including underwear) is banned on campus, partly because of gang-affiliated colors. The school is considering letting students wear the school's baseball cap, with embroidered mascot.

That thing just seems too flippy & flappy to be out on the boat with. And drawing the flap across my face: I can just see Homeland Security eyeballing that.

How much does it cost? I just ducktape a washcloth to the back of a baseball cap.

Yeah... it probably would blow a bit in the wind and end up exposing your neck anyway, right? Guess I'll probably stick to the Walleroo hat. It's done me well for years.

Ahhh... I forgot about how there are gangs and of course all the rules in schools now. Did you hear about that high school kid last week that got Tazered for distrupting a lunch period. He was streaking. Seems pretty funny to me to streak, but then I wasn't always the favorite of teachers.

Long Beach... is that a challenging neighborhood to teach in? Forgive my CA geography ignorance, but isn't that where Snoop Dog and his posse are from? (seriously?)

Talk about your thread drift... Just curious about the area.

Wow, was this really nigh on a year and a half ago?


Anyway, now bought me hat from Frillneck Products in Australia - and I thought they deserved a plug



Frillneck UTE Products

Quick to answer an E-mail query, took around a week to arrive and quality is excellent (kinda wary on that one).

Obviously in this part of the world Sun is not quite the same issue as in Oz, but we don't do badly and of course Sun, Salt, reflection and wind does all add up.......apart from the Sun I bought them on the basis that as a hat they are less likely to blow off! and also provide a bit of a neck scarf to keep the chill off and some light rain / spray protection from running down me neck .......they have about 10 ways to fold things / wear them. They make 'em in different weights of cloth and loads of colours / patterns.

A season or two of use will of course prove how useful / practical.......

Downside of course is that perhaps best not to wear one if sailing from overseas into certain countries


Just seen that they are also called an "Urban Turban" LOL!

I have lots of little bits of skin which I have to have frozen off every so often. I wish I had such a hat when I was a tuna fisherman and I may not have have had such trouble today. Glare off the water even burnt the inside of my nostrils
