I am wondering what is the best all around hat for hunting deer? Just looking for something that is versatile in our crazy weather.

Like with the boots, I've not found any one that is good for all circumstances.

I typically go afield with a lightweight mesh cap and a heavier insulated hat, along with a variety of "head gear" items which can be worn under the cap or hat. IMO, you need several different caps/hats.

There is also the issue of whether you need camo or orange headwear, or both.

Agree with the above that there is no one hat for hunting. Nor do I consider a hat to be a highly important part of a hunting system.

This question really depends on what you want out of a hat. If you just want the sun out of your eyes, any old hat will do. That being said, I have really become a fan of the KUIU line of hunting gear. Its a relatively new company that was started by one of the founders of Sitka gear who defected when Sitka started using large retailers and had to reduce their quality to make their prices competitive. (he has a long rant about the hunting industry retailers on his blog).

Anyway, they have a hat that weight 2 oz, is very tough, UV resistant and water resistant. dries quickly. https://store.kuiu.com/products/clothing/kuiu_cordura_cap/?category_name=headwear

Its great for hot weather hunting -extremely breathable. I also wear it often when running and it doesn't seem to hold scent very much because, between turkey season and running, its seen a lot of sweat.

Though, in the end, its just a hat, so don't over think it.

I use a BDU hat from an army surplus store. They are great for keeping the sun out of your eyes as the round brim around them blocks it from all directions not like a ball cap where you have to move it around. Plus they fold up to put in your pocket.

I have an orange Gortex insulated baseball hat (with fold down insulated ear flaps) from Bass Pro that I wear during cooler weather. During the cold weather, I have an orange insulated fleece knit type hat that I wear. During milder weather, I'll wear my orange TNDeer hat or my orange Remington hat.

During small game season, I'll wear my mesh TNDeer hat when it's warm. When it's cold, I'll wear my camo Gortex insulated baseball hat (with fold down insulated ear flaps). I also have an Elmer Fudd style insulated/Gortex camo hat with fold down fur earflaps. I want to get a blaze orange one for deer season, too.

A man can't have too many hats. \:\)

Biggest part of the time its my trusty old boonie hat from the local army/navy store, also a big fan of a good fit'n ball cap, cant stand a ball cap that fits like a 10 gallon cowboy hat.
