    Big hat on the beach

    Has anyone come up with a way to have a hat other than a baseball cap. Like a big round brimmed hat to protect you whole head from the sun. Even if it means cut the hat so the headphones fit. Or something like that.

    I use a big straw hat during the summer, gives me full coverage. Then I wear 50 sunblock to protect from the reflection off the water. Now the bad is you get recognized from a distance
    easy.

    You use an extra large hat to go over the headphones?

    Yes, fits right over. See if I can find a picture... I got one around here some where. I stole off a political commercial. I seen it on TV and said thats me!! I just happened to get to the beach and they were having a clean up, so I jumped in and helped for a hour. During that time I seen video cam and drones...figured someone was just getting some good shots, turned out to be the Person is running for office and wanted to show he was out cleaning the beach. He was there only for maybe a hour, not sure if it worked for him or not in the election.

    Buy a couple of different Adams Sunblock hats (from Kellyco) or the like (Columbia Sports wear co); they look like a baseball cap with a drape on the sides and back to block sun rays. SPF of 50+. I have several different manufacturers of these hats and prefer the Columbia brand because the material is very thin and light and cool. The Adams hats are ok, but are of a heavier material that gets hot in the Florida sun if temp is over 80 or so.
