    oh yes hat! something crushable that doesn’t look too dorky when reshaped, and deflects both sun & rain. Neutral dirt-hiding color. Washable. But maybe this is a fun thing to hunt for once arrived.

    flashlight: looks very nice, but will you be able to find replacement bulbs? I favor LED-based lighting now, cuz the LEDs have million-hour life.

    I found a better one recently which is LED and waterproof. I should update this page when I find it again 🙂
