Ironically, for a fishing hat, this one hates water. The Australian oilskin will repel it; it’ll just bounce off. If you happen to fall in the water or the water happens to fall on you, your hat won’t be ruined, just a bit damp.
The hat’s ample brim will also keep the sun away from your neck and face. Plus, there’s two eyelets for ventilation, so if your head does get a bit damp from sweat or falling in, it’ll dry out faster. Finally, the unstructured design allows it to be stashed in a glovebox or pocket so you’re ready for the sun whenever it shows its face.
