The test hat is wide and it goes all the way around so it cuts out the
sunlight on the face and neck. Some have described it as Western, but it's
really not. I realize when I said 3", it's probably a little wider than
that. The length of the brim is about the same as a baseball cap, but goes
completely around the crown of the hat. It can be formed western, or Aussie
style, or flat.

Maybe, but they're handy in country (such as mountains) where the
temperature swings widely.
