The genius of Vietnamese
« on: September 29, 2020, 11:41:39 AM »
I was working in the garden for days in the sun and heat.  The sun's rays really hits your face and neck.  Now my neck is burnt red like a lobster.  I remember from the days of the French Legionnaire in Africa they have those hats with the neck cover to protect from the sun.  I thought that could really save me.

So I bought 2 of these boonie hats on eBay thinking it will protect my neck from the sun and mosquitoes.

At first it really does cool you down but there are problems with the hat.  One is that the hat is in contact with your head and traps heat, then you sweat down your neck,  the neck cover then sticks to your neck and becomes very uncomfortable.  I have to take off the hat to fan myself every minute or so.  It gets really cumbersome and annoying.

Then I remember in some Vietcong movies of Vietnamese wearing conical hats.  I tried one of those conical hats on and it's the best thing that heaven could ever afford.  The hat isn't in contact with your head therefore creating airflow.  I believe the shape of the hat traps wind like a parachute giving you some extra breeze.  The wide brim protects your face and neck from the sun like an umbrella.  I feel very cool and feeling very lovely.

they should make a travel conical hat that can be folded to small size so you don´t even need to use an umbrella.  I have lost so many beautiful solid stick umbrellas made from rare woods.
