    I took my Tilley T-3 and my trusty A.H. ball cap!

    On my first safari I had a camo boonie I bought at some discount store. It was ventilated and light weight with a narrow brim. I’m wearing it in my avatar. My PH liked it so much, I gave it to him, thinking I could find another... NOPE!
    For my second safari I took a dark grey ventilated boonie that had a tuck away neck drape. I got this one for $6 at Walmart.

    I like the boonie hats by TRU-SPEC. I've had one for ten years and it's held up very well. I've since bought a few more just to have a couple other camo patterns I like, and one plain light brown one for use in places where camo might be frowned upon.

    Have had a Tilley for years, can’t go wrong with them. Wear it for hunting to yard work. Throw it in the washer several times a year and it comes out like new. If this one ever wears out, won’t hesitate to buy another.

    I used the Tilley LTM6 during all this summer and during a 15 days trip with lot of sun and heat and I don't regret this choice !

    I normally use just a regular Army green boonie hat from the local Army/Navy supply store for about $15.
    I wish Filson made the Tin Cloth Bush Hat in a green, I'd be sold on it.
    I may be upgrading to a Filson Tin Cloth Packer Hat because it does come in green, although the brim is a bit shorter than the Bush hat.

    I like Tilley hats. The T5M0 is about perfect for me. I have a very good quality Akubra from Australia, for when I have to look my best, but it's not as practical to travel with a hat that can't be crushed.

    For me it's an early 50s Roos Brothers Homburg- for the last several years very few occasions find me that dressed-up, so I generally have one of my Filsons.
