Hiking the Sahara (or that stupid parking lot at the mall--can they make it any bigger??), the sun and heat are surely your worst enemies. The Carson? Your best friend. Made of 100% garment washed cotton with mesh sides, it'll keep the sun off and yet circulate some air. You just might make the oasis on the horizon, the a/c CD shop or at least the cooler next to your hammock in the backyard. Imported. Available in Khaki Or Putty. Brim 2 3/8 inches.
