This hat is cool in two ways- first, it helps keep the sun off of your head and neck, while allowing the breeze to flow through the top. Second, it helps you look more like Bob! I’ve often seen Bob wearing a hat similar to this one. The straw-type of construction is very well vented, and the band is embroidered with the name and likeness of your favorite airplane. The band is removable from the hat, and we also offer the band separately for half of the price of the hat. The band is available in red (as pictured), black, or in royal blue.
