Today, my Indiana Jones-esque Filson Packer Hat arrived. This is the second one I’ve owned, and they’re excellent for hiking and walking of all sorts. They wear in nicely and are extremely durable. I wore the first one for several years, but ultimately gave up on it because it hurt my head.
See, my brother and I have very large heads. I don’t know why, but it just worked out that way. So, despite my local outdoors store stocking a broad range of these hats, I had to special order an XXL. I’m kind of tall, but in most other respects (keep your dirty jokes to yourself, thank you) I’m within regular human parameters. I’m like Calvin, sans talking tiger. So you ask yourself, why such a big head (obscure Saturday Night Live reference there–Rich Hall doing David Byrne)?
