One thing is for sure, when it comes to beach and summer headwear, the lighter, more breathable, more rapidly drying the material, the better. Our buds over at Katin have the perfect hat for summer or quite possibly year round wear. The Daly is made of the same nylon their classic trunks are made with. Not only is this nylon super light but it's soft, it's comfy, it feels like the weekend on your head and it's made right in Los Angeles too! Available in both black and olive HERE. Just a heads up (pun intended) you might put in on and never take it off.
