Summer Hat

What hat do you wear when not driving the Boxster? I like wearing a baseball cap while driving the Boxster, with the top down, but when I’m kicking back on the beach or in the back yard I’m sporting one of these (along with my Tommy Bahama shirt):

Why even take the time to post such a stupid reply.

Jager, I wear the same type of straw hat as you. Cheap, good sun protection, and cool.

Depends on what I'm wearing that day... either a ballcap or a fedora hat similar to this...

OK since JD started a thread on cyclist I will have to admit that I also wear this hat on occasion. Happy 4th!
