Tilley TH4. Hemp and highly breathable, durable, comfortable, blends well for hunting, floats in the water, has shade all around your head, and the shorter brim is flexible which is dandy for shooting with a bow or scope alike.

Get a regular summer vented hat & cut the brim to whatever length you want.  Take some fabric glue to the edge you cut to secure the material.

I just bought an inexpensive floppy hat that's vented from Bass Pro Shop. I think it's Red Head brand.

Reddogge, nice cool hat but with my bald head I wouldn't want to get sun burnt. :-))

You won't, the top is solid. Only the sides are mesh.

The filson summer packer is a nice hat that seemd to breathe  well.. the brim is s 2-3/4” it’s a quality hat. I have the winter Packer with a 21/4 brim but it’s a warm p e.
   I have to agree on the tillies

Fred and Teresa Asbell have one that looks promising: https://asbellwool.com/products/short-brim-fedora-wmesh-vent-sage .

I've seen a picture of Ron LaClair stylin' one with one of Teresa's hatbands here on the Pow Wow, I think...
