Dunno about the Arafat style - but a company called Headsweats do a pretty good Legionaires style cap. Check out some of the better outdoor stores.
Cheers

I got my Frillneck hat (same style) at the Cancer Council shop in Adelaide.

Here are the NSW stores. http://shop.cancercouncil.com.au/t-storelocations.aspx

Alternatively you can buy online from Frillneck direct http://www.frillneck.com.au/catalog/index.php

This is what you are looking for....

http://www.frillneck.com.au/catalog/index.php

They used to market then as an ARAPHAT but not sure they are calling them that nowadays - I think they have Frillneck on them instead of Araphat. They have a couple of different models tin the range.

My original Araphat was worn until it fell apart.....my current bright pink and grey one is going well. I have bought a couple of cheaper imitations but they were not as comfortable or practical.

The polyester lycra models are the ones I like - prefer them to the others. You can order off their website if you wish - the prices are about the same as you would pay retail.

Cheers,

Bart70

I'm a bit confused.

I'm interested in the Frillneck, but what is the difference between the polyester micromesh, the polyester cotton lycra and the 100% cotton?

Weight, U/V reducing capability and warm/cooling.
Micromesh would be lightest, lowest UV reduction (still enough 75+ or more at a guess) and very cool.

When buying any hat to use on the water, I understand that you should stay away from lighter/white coloured under rims as these reflect the sunlight into your face. The frill neck appears to have a light under rim but it is hard to tell from the photos. Can anyone confirm if it does or not? Other than that, I appreciate the suggestions and will investigate further.

I have a beige frillneck and it has a dark green under peak. A few years back i spent a bit of time in NT and wouldn't have survived without it. Also they are great at night keeping th bugs off as well as the insects up there have no respect for repellent. ;-)
