rain hat   (0)  [vote for, against]
a hat that produces a pretty waterfall effect around the face for cooling and aesthetic purposes

perhaps a ten-gallon hat? perhaps not – it might prove to be a wee bit heavy. a litre would most probably be adequate to give a pleasant spray as one perambulates in the heat. the reservoir is in the centre and the apertures around the brim of the hat can be adjusted to allow a short deluge or a longer refreshing light shower.

if you did happen to get caught in a real shower, more to the good; as your reservoir would be topped up without any bother.

beer might prove to be popular as an alternative.

How about vodka as an alternative? It's high alcohol content would mean that it would evapourate more rapidly producing an increased cooling effect. It's also nearly odourless. hic.+

Mr. Burns, you are a genius. Why didn't you tell us that you saw Po's rain hat on your screen? Is it going to hit my area and for how long?

Well, if it's going to be a damed reservoir it sounds like a good place for some power generation equipment. Perhaps to drive a fan?

Now why did I think this was a FarmerJohn effort? Maybe he'll draw you a pretty picture if you ask him nicely.

Your are most likely to need it when the sun is out and you are sweating. Put a little solar cell and a pump together. The pump pumps the sweat that ran into your shoes back onto the hat. No wasted water any more and no blisters from wet socks while hiking.
