A good few years ago I was down in Oz and went for a few days skippered charter
in the Whitsundays - hopefully one day I will get back.
But, anyway - the Skipper
has what seemed to me to be really effective (and I thought cool!) headgear as sun protection. It is kinda hard to describe - so please bear with me whilst I do my best!
It was like a short version of Arab headdress, except with a peaked cap and could be either clipped accross the lower face or left open. EIther way it was loose, not like a balaclava. It was far more than a baseball cap with a flap on the back of the neck. It did not have a "Hard" cap like a baseball cap. I think it was fixed on top of his head
by a band like on a peaked Sunvisor. Definately a hot weather
item, no designed to keep one warm.
I don't think he said it was self made. Anyone seen anything remotely similar (apart from on the news
) commercially available?
