    I have a Pith Helmet.
    Used to wear it 20 years ago while Mountainbiking.

    Nice hat :tongue:. Do you still wear it much?


    I like hats ;). I reckon I could wear a different one each day for a month before I wore the same one twice.
    Mainly wooly.

    Once upon a time, I used to wear a WW1 german infantry helmet whilst MTBing.

    It saved my life once when I took a a jump, and I managed to spike myself into an overhanging branch whilst I watched my bike plummet into the crevasse below.

    Anyone that went to the Get Cycling Show would have seen my beutiful hat.;)
    Its been all over Europe and England, used to wear it to cycle but it used to blow off or get too sweaty.

    You MTB'd in a Pickelhaube??!!
    Now that's what I call style:biggrin:
    You did say you spiked yourself.

    And yes. I wore my Pith helmet today when cycling into town on my Strida

    Are you for real or just taking the Pith?

    I use a "Tilley" to protect my MPB* hairstyle

    Flat caps are more my kind of thing. This one's a snip at $400, but I'm not sure about the earflaps ;)

    I wear a plain unbadged Glengarry without the pompom or the dicing, which have slightly sectarian ovetones: sr_lochc_hkbt_glengarry_diced.jpg

    The ribbons flutter nicely in the breeze. People come up and ask me if I'm in the Boys' Brigade or something.

    I don't like wearing anything on my head but a bald head means that if I'm out in the sun for more than an hour something is needed. On the bike a helmet does the trick very well and also has some other potential advantages, off the bike I'm very original and wear various baseball type caps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'd love to wear a knotted hanky in summer, and a string vest, but Mrs F won't let me! ;):biggrin:

    I love hats, fedoras and trilbys especially. I do worry a bit about adding more to my height though as at 6' 5", I'm tall enough already.

    I also love doing hat manipulation and juggling. This sort of thing.

    Well it's certainly a hat - not sure about the "really good" bit though.:biggrin:

    I, er, 'acquired' a policeman's helmet when working at a police station that was being refurbished! :biggrin:

    Struggling to find a use for it! Doesn't really go with my nurses uniform! :rolleyes:
