    'ats

    I know they're probably not being used very much lately, with the weather being as bad as it is, but I'm sure some day soon we'll get summer here, and we'll need to keep the sun off our faces. So does anyone wear an 'at whilst shooting, and if so, what type?

    I tried a standard baseball cap a few weeks ago, and found that the bow string touched (indeed, even pushed) the peak of the cap when I was at full draw. Which wasn't good at all. So short of turning it back-to-front, which is really not a good look for a 40-something bloke, or tilting it up onto the top of my head, which again makes it pointless wearing it, I wondered what most other people do?

    I've seen a few people wearing short brimmed beanie / jungle style hats, but I'm not convinced by them - anyone else tried any others?

    Yeah

    Ive had this problem too,, I dont mind wearing a baseball cap backwards but then it doesnt really keep the sun off the eyes.

    I have a good pair of wrap round shades that just about give me a decent center view. but again Im not too comfy wearing sunglasses.

    I think a Jungle hat may well be the order of the day come full sun (40 days out of 365 here LOL)

    You can't beat a Tilley Hat for keeping the sun off your head. I got myself a T3 last year* and it does the job (although I have to velcro the front back for shooting).

    Last year when I was buying one someone from Tilley mentioned they'd pass my comments onto the designers regarding a Tilley Archery hat. Guess nothing came of it.....

    I think that the T5 has a narrower brim than the T3.

    I love my T3, and with a compound it doesn't touch the string
    It's all about consistancy................unfortunatly I am consistantly bad
