I like umbrellas, but a lot of the time carrying one is not practical. And especially when wearing my trenchcoat I just like adding a water-resistant hat to brave the elements. I've got a crushable Borsalino travel fedora, a navy beret basque (also Borsalino), and a waxed canvas barbour cap (the latter two are not v. good in the rain as they obviously have no brim). I also used to have a thick cotton soft hat I bought in Seattle ages ago, but I think I've lost it on a train. I'm not too keen on the Barbour soft brimmed hats, and the Filson hats remind me too much of Indiana Jones. Any alternatives? I'd like the hat to be foldable and pocketable, but not too old-mannish. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
