I have never heard the expression beanie hat before and I was going to copy it for paste onto the web based translator I someties have to use, but then I realised that by trying to copy that text, I have voted that option without even knowing what it is.
Can someone send a picture of a beanie type hat?
Thanks for the Poll Andy. It will be interesting to see if I was right about the level of interest in a SOTA hat. I wonder roughly how many SOTA shirts sell annually, as that could be a benchmark of required hat interest.
And I immediately had the same thought about a BOTH option. Not critically important since this is just a gauge of general interest. But there are not that many votes cast yet. How much could it hurt to try adding the BOTH option just to see what happens? Curious minds want to know.
I have already tested changing my vote between all of the current available choices, and it tracked perfectly. I would certainly change it to BOTH if that became an option.
Concur! We call that a Boonie hat over here. And out here in the desert, you need that unless you like your ears extra-crispie. Even in our winter period, sun burn is a real possibility. But the baseball hat might be good for city functions, club meetings. etc…

The Boonie or Slouch hat we buy in vk usually shrink once washed and don’t fit my melon head any more. If I buy one a bigger size allowing for shrinkage after a wash it blows off until such a time. But they are good with the fly vale option on our summits. Cap or Beanie would be just fine though.
