In today’s sociality when the weather is to hot or to cold or any other adverse condition most of us run from our air conditioned house to our air conditioned car and simply avoid the bad conditions. But what happens if a major disaster occurs, we may have to face the outside conditions.
Now most of us have the sense to have a good jacket. However, in talking to some of the less prepared types one thing that they forget about is hats. Remember, in the winter you can lose a significant amount of body heat from your uncovered head. In the summer, you can suffer from heat or sunstroke from an uncovered head.
Now the cowboy who spent a lot of his time outside in the elements wouldn’t be caught dead without his cowboy hat. It kept his head warm in the winter and shaded in the summer. He could even use it to water his horse in a pinch.
Since then there have been many other developments and styles of hats that have become available to us. I have winter hats and summer hats, many hats. So what type of hat do you wear if you have to bug out? I want something that will protect my head all year round in most conditions. Do I have to carry a winter and a summer hat?
I am looking for suggestions. A good hat can be the difference between life and death.
