Look much the same Ocean Earth has the "Indo flap" looks like it could flap all over the place, need one with a stiff brim at least any preferences ?

I have not used O&E but my West has the nice stiff brim. Used it in 30kn and not even aware it is there. Has never flapped downwards into my field of vision or anything. Love it

Excel do a great one. Chin straps on others can rub real bad during a long session.

I've had both. Ocean and earth lasted about 3 years before the stitching gave way and broke. It was perfect no drama whatsoever I now have had a west since half way through the summer. It feels the same. You can't go wrong with a gumby hat better than shades i reckon.

Pretty much same same Kiter 77. We have both in stock if you want to compare. Agree with rellie - none of them look cool but they do the job.

They look much cooler than having half your face, ears, scalp, and eyes chopped off/out due to cancer. I'm a happy hat wearer!
