Think cool for a summer safari hat. You'll need it when when the sun and heat are surely your worst enemies: traversing the Sahara (or that stupid parking lot at the mall--can they make it any bigger??). Think The Carson, Scala's 100% cotton mesh summer hat. Your best friend. Made of garment washed cotton with mesh sides, it'll keep the sun off and yet circulate some air. You just might make the oasis on the horizon (the air-conditioned coffee shop) or at least the cooler next to your hammock. Packable and crushable. Imported. Available in Khaki Or Putty. Brim 2 3/8 inches.
