Hats ?

Ive lost two hats in two trips - the round the IOW trip left me with a sunburnt bald patch. (Im now solar powered)

What do you guys use as a hat that dosent fly off ? Both baseball caps failed. I popped into a chandlery shop and had a look but other than an expensive Tilly hat with string under the chin, I only saw more expensive baseball hats.

Yup, a Gecko would be like wearing a microwave oven

Perhaps a popper stud on top of my bald patch would work.

This has been recommended before and seems a good alternative to Tilleys.
