Shiney modeling it in the sun at the RTE at Woodford at approx 11:00 am.
 
As you can see it is very effective at keeping the sub of the face and in particular the ears and back of the neck.

 The first daytime RTE Shiney hasn't gone home with sunburnt ears.

SHINEY'S HAT REVIEW

I normally just wear the OzSTOC cap to keep the glare off but I have been lucky enough to be given a chance to test out the OzSTOC Broad Brimmed Hat (version 2) :runyay



So I have been taking it with me all over the place, walking, driving, working around the yard and at RTEís, it is very comfortable and fairly lightweight.
The brim is large enough to cover my face, ears and neck, it keeps the sun off so well that even when I forget sunscreen I don't get burned :rockon

      

I have even tested it against the cap by removing it when out and about and instead putting on the capÖ
I could immediately feel the heat on my neck, ears and part of my face :H, by comparison the broad brim provided great sun protection and made it noticeably cooler :thumbsup





The hat has a cord/chin strap that you can adjust to keep it on your head when it is windy, however I found it to stay in place by itself fairly well.



This hat maintains itís shape very well even when itís been packed badly, rolled up, folded, sat on, tossed or crumpled in a top box :clap :clap :clap

   

The OzSTOC Broad Brimmed Hat (version 2) seems very well made and has my recommendation :thumbsup


Cheers
Shiney

Thanks Shiney. It looked good at the RTE. You also appeared to squint less too.

Yep- vast improvement on the first model in the thread...    :eek    :grin

So here is where we are at on the hats....

Order was placed and the Manufacturer has discontinued that colour and style  :fp as so often happens in this industry.


So another manufacturer is now being sort who will produce a product as close as possible to the one we selected by the majority  :thumb


If this had to happen I'm glad it was now and not after we made the order and received the first 25 hats.


stay tuned  :thumbsup
