    They only provide more shade if the sun is pretty much straight up in the air. Otherwise, the curvature you get on the sides helps block a lot that the flatbill doesn't for most times of the day when the sun is out. So, functionally speaking, flatbill is worse unless you only wander outside during high noon.

  • I disagree. The flatbrim by design is a wider brim than what I call the Kenny Chesney. Therfor it covers more area and casts a larger surface area of shade. It may be too close to call. Ones facial structure must also be accounted for. Larger individuals gain more shade from the flatbrim because there face can sometimes break the perimeter of the curve.

    Flatbrims also provide a best in class in the vision category.

  • When I was a kid I got a new SuperSonics hat and I wore it to school. The bill was still flat and I didn't realize I was supposed to bend it. Everyone at school made fun of me for having a flat-bill...but little did they know that I was actually starting a new fashion trend. I wonder if any of them realizes that it was me who introduced the amazing new look of the flat-billed cap.

    Again, only when the sun is mostly up in the middle of the sky. At 4pm, it comes from a considerable angle, and that flatbrim isn't doing crap for you compared to the curvature on the sides from a "normal" hat.

    ...I know what you two are doing, and it won't work. The real Roland Deschain would never flatbrim a damned baseball hat. He'd watch Eddie do it and ask why, Eddie would crack some wiseass remark about it and have trouble justifying it, and Roland would shake his head.

  • Yup, go flat brim and look like a dork...Though I will admit that it does lend a swagger to the dudes who like wearing their jeans 5 sizes too big and showing off their hairy butt cracks.

  • As a 40 something, I find the flat bill a little too young for my age demographic. I prefer a slight bend, not the 'country boy' full U bend but a gradual circumference. I only bust balls about flat bills if they go over the outside of the ear.

    I've found ebay to be chock full of different varieties although I typically order from the pro shop for the nostalgia value.

  • The worst is when the flatbill is on just a little bit crooked too.

    Do they spend time getting it just right? Just a little crooked, but not too much.... ah perfect.

  • The precurved are way too bent for my liking. The flat bill, a bit too flat for my liking. I buy the flat and curl the edges just a tad. So I have no idea what category I fall into.

    I also like how the flat bills tend to come in exact sizes, while the precurved tend to be snap backs or adjustable, and I just don't like that look.

    I just bought the newest version of that hat. Its green with a blue band around it and damn sure to warm to wear until the fall rains. lol

    I wish they had a straw hat like I wear with the team logo on it. I have one that covers my ears, top of my head, and neck also. But try and find one like that with a Seahawks emblem on it. I know this one will be fine once the weather cools this fall and winter but I hate having to look at it sitting around doing nothing.

  • With paying for my excess sun indescrations of yesteryear I have to wear a hat that covers my head completely and over my ears. I found the perfect straw version at Northwest Seed and Pet here in Spokane. It covers my entire head and the back of my neck yet has vents enough to not be a killer in the sun.

    Cheapest hat I own, only cost $20

    Get with it Seahawks, we over here on the desert side need hats for the summer too.
