No Sweat Head Radiator

Obtain sun block capacity of hat without heat buildup on head
  [vote for,

Thin plastic tube mesh on head inside 10 gallon hat, and along hat outside. Water as heat exchange fluid runs through tubes carrying heat to outside of hat, particularly under brim for shaded surface area. Compressible layers in soles of shoes activate by walking, achieving 3-5 psi each step. Greatest heat loss is through the head, therefore entire body is cooler.

       Check out the categories, there are many for hats. Try~ Fashion: Hat: Temperature.

       Aww, what fun is that? Vote against and don't say why? What good's a halfbake if you don't tear it down? Heck, I didn't vote for it.

       Baked in film. Check out The Island of Dr Moreau, the version with Brad Pitt, Min-Me, and Marlon Brando. Brando has a "caloritic converter."

       A "caloritic converter" is not this thing.

       Somebody posted a link to Brando/ice bucket which doesn't work. Here's one with pic:

       Brando said he wore the bucket because he was bored. He was also outfitted with a receiver to prompt his lines, the receiver also picked up police calls, at one point on the set he says, "There's a robbery at Woolworth's."

       I like that Brando story [Corona].   

       About the hat, does it come with an "I'm with the dork" t-shirt for your partner?

       I like it too, you know Mr. Brando deadpanned it.   

       Some of our best friends are dorks, you know.   

       Maybe the hat would come into fashion. Bell-bottom pants legs came back. And let's not forget the stylish Nascar fans, bodily bedecked with corporate stickers. Like the rebels they are, I can see this hat perched rakishly at angle, festooned with Mobil and Chevy identity flags as they sit for hours watching the highway. A sunscreen could hang down from the brim in front of the face, doing away with sunglasses, creating a sort of form follows function efficiency mosaic. The end result could be stunningly beautiful with the proper perspective necessary to perceive it that way.   

       Alternatively, assuming nobody has any technical objections to the proposal, would anybody know the hat for anything but an oddly patterned ten-gallon hat when walking in the sun?
