      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Recomend me a sun hat?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, after getting most of my face burnt off on a glacier I'm in the market for a new sun hat. Looking for something lightweight, with good coverage, and preferably a dark brim and light color.

If I could wear it with my climbing helmet that would be excellent. If it looks great that would be even better.

What are people using?

Fashion comments aside, I was looking at the OR Sun Runner cap.

Cheers, Rob

As stated above, that combination works really well.

 

Also, make sure that the sun screen you use is sweat proof, and remember to re-apply that goo everywhere on your face. This includes places you would never expect to get sun burnt. (Like INSIDE your nostrils! The bottom of you nose, and under your chin.) I have first hand experience in getting burns in these unexpected places.

Good study and test on hundreds of sunscreens and the results. Which ones really work and which are more harmful than good for you. How bad is the one you are using?
