Preferred Detecting Hat(s)


Recommended Posts


I ordered 3 sunblock long sleeve shirts off Amazon all just generic brands the two cheaper ones have been delivered they were under $20, I love them. They are cool and lightweight the fabric is soft and breathable perfect for the hot Las Vegas summer heat.

On another note the Stingray hat was delivered somehow they wound up charging me $90 not sure how that happened, but no matter because it’s a really nice $10 hat  that was sent folded in half scrunched up in a plastic baggie so the brim has a strange bend you can’t correct... needless to say the hats being returned for a refund.

Clark look into the DOC's hat.  It's not the sexiest looking hat but it does keep it you cool and keeps the sun off and nowhere near $90 LOL

The hat I wore in N. Sudan Africa to protect myself from the intense sun and unrelenting heat.

Attractive?  Not exactly the adjective that I would use to describe this hat.  Functional?  You bet.

This hat, is completely size adjustable via an elastic band that secures in the back with a Velcro® type hook and loop closure.  The hat is made of very soft t-shirt like material that absorbs moisture while it protects you from direct sunlight because of a SPF rating of 50.

Do you know how your ears get so sweaty and damp when wearing a pair of headphones in the summer?  Well this hat really helps.

Wearing your headphones over the material does not interfere with the sound at all.  But what it does do is it wicks the moisture away from your ears.  The cloth, covering your ears, directs the moisture out of the headphone cup.  It seeps under the headphone cup to the exterior where it evaporates.  This actually helps keep your ears dry and comfortable.


The Detector Protector hat also has numerous Velcro® type tabs stitched at strategic locations so you can close the neck protector portion around the front of your neck, place part of it over your nose and mouth.  Or you can tab it in the back on those over cast days where you don’t need so much protection.  Or gather it in the back and pull it through the elastic loop in the back to get it completely off of your neck.


Obviously this  “DP” hat was not designed to make a fashion statement.  But it will protect you from the sun and allow you to detect in more comfort than you have ever experienced with any other hat.

I have purchased several of the white long sleeve shirts, they are nice even in hot weather. When using head phones, I wear a ball cap and have a scarf under the cap protecting my neck.

The sun in Australia is an all year challenge, not just in summer. Our choice in hats is evolving as it has become a health and safety issue at work. The market for hats that allow headphones has got to the stage that Newcastle Hats has a few models that allow choice of brim size, venting hole or micromesh etc You can even order custom.. Up until recently in Australia, the postage was more expensive than the hat. Luckily a few Australian local manufacturers have stepped up. This is the model I'll have on my head when I venture out. I ordered the larger brim size with the flap for the neck. Again we are spoilt for choice.

      I was looking at wet suit’s and it said 7mm but I wanted to know what’s that in inches.
      Well here’s the formula to find out .
      7mm
      7. divided by 25.4 = inches
       Maybe some of you knew this but I didn’t.

      I'm looking for a pair of light weight and comfortable boots with hiking soles and no metal eyelets or hooks.  The key words are Light Weight and Comfortable!
      Anyone know of any?
      Thanks!

      How much do scuba drysuit cost in the USA? What is the best quality / price ratio?

      I use a water proof, metal free calf boot most of the time when I walk on the beach.  I have bought them from various places like Walmart, sporting goods stores and online.  They are both styles of fishing boots and muck boots for agriculture and the like.  All of them crack after just a few months (many miles) and they leak.  In the past I have tried glue, tapes and other things to get more life out of them.  I've tried different brands.
      My last purchase was a pair of Tingley's and they are probably the best so far but they have now cracked down near my big toe.  They have lasted since February.  They have gone up 50% in price since then.
      Does anyone know a glue or fix for this?  I wouldn't mind even slopping something over the outside but it has to be flexible.  
      When the water is warm I could use a Clog or slipper but they don't provide the support and protection when I refill my holes.

      Made really well and have a padded palm. Less money than they junk work gloves I had before.

      I got a call to find an wedding ring for a guy when it was 8000 degrees. I get there and after 1 hr I am dead. He asks me if I would like to use his cooling vest. I said no due to me not knowing what it was. He starts explaining it to me so I gave it a try... ITS AWESOME!!! I detected in 110 heat index and felt kinda chilly. It lasted around 85 min before he changed out the packs. Anyone ever used a cooling vest?
