Speaking of hats........
Whatever happened to the Jones hat? Probably the best all-around hunting hat ever made. It had it all - adequate bill for sun shade for the eyes and keeping rain off glasses, could wear the rear brim up or down, ear flaps for chilly weather that folded up inside, and small enough it didn't interfere with a hood.
I haven't seen one for sale for years, I don't think anyone even makes one anymore. They used to be available in cotton canvas, wool, and I've even seen them made out of some kind of pliable plastic type material.
When I first started hunting I had one in the brown duck color of all small game clothing of the time. Wore it for years until the blaze orange laws came into being. Had one in blaze orange and wore that one until it got so faded out I finally had to replace it with something else. Wish I would have bought a few of them when they were still available!
