Grab a copy of Patey's 'One Man's Mountains' if you're lucky enough to have access to that modern classic of English/Anguished climbing or lay yr hands on Alpinist 41, the current issue, which has a one page photo and profile on the 'Fox of Glencoe.'

A worthy subject.

In the pub and at the crag the "flat at" was standard issue for Hamish. I really liked the stylee wool chapeau but it was instant malaria in warmer weather. All cotton much mo betta and cheaper too!

Was snooping around and found this in the 1972 baseball thread. Looks like that might be Jerry Anderson wearing the 'hat' from the thread comments. Blow it up here;

That flat cap that Eric Beck is sporting is the coolest of the cool. That guy has style! Where can you get on of those?

Vuarnets are awesome! Skilynx lenses are still the best for climbing, skiing, and whitewater rafting. Got some cateyes a couple of years back for a Grand Canyon trip and I look like I stepped out of a time machine with them on. One of my adult daughters looked at me aghast the first time she saw me with them on and said, "Did you see how far they stick out from your face?"

What could be better: they have the best lenses ever, take me back and make me smile, and drive my kids crazy!

Really cool thread !

I used to wear one back-in-the-day, then I switched to cycling caps when the halibuts became harder to find. I never knew they were called "halibut hats" though; thanks for that bit of info.
