Supply may be offering a new activity hat for Boy Scouts later this year. It
is a true felt fedora style (somewhere between Indiana Jones and an old style
crusher - but the felt is thicker). Hat has a leather band and chin strap
and a really nice BSA Universal Metal Emblem Pin on the front. Reported
price will be under $30.00. The hats are a dark green and look really neat
with the uniform -- activity or dress. They were field tested by those
participating in NJLIC and the OA Trail Crew this past summer at Philmont.
(Some were seen on Scouters at the Training Center during the Boy Scout
Conferences). They went over really well. The kids and adults loved them
and they were great for the trail (wide brim to take care of the sun -- water
resistant -- held up really well in New Mexico downpours).
Hope this hat will be released. In my youth I would have said it was "cool."
