What kind of hat is the best kind for hiking?

A baseball cap? Fedora? Maybe a cowboy hat? Although all these hats are usually worn outside, they aren’t the best option for hiking. When searching for the perfect hat for hiking there are a number of factors to consider. The hat should have a long enough brim to cover your face from the sun and its UV rays. Also, the brim has to go all the way around your head instead of just the front, in order to protect your neck as well. The fabric should be thick enough so the sun can’t go through but light enough to still keep you cool, and it would help if the hat was washable.   That’s why the Walking Hat and the Outdoor Hat from Gordon Wear are the perfect hats for hiking.
