The Real Deal Brazil: A Geocacher's Hat of Choice

From angling to alpining, hiking to hunting, kayaking to kicking back, camping to canoeing, gardening to gun-shooting, traveling to tailgating, hoedowning to hoisting a few, zombie killing to just killin' time, our Real Deal Brazil recycled-tarp hat is the hearty, hardy headwear to beat! And now you can add modern-day treasure hunting to that growing list of livin'-large leisure pursuits.

We've been hearing more and more frequently how our hat just fits in with the whole geoacaching idea, and how geoaching fans are constantly praising our rugged headwear to fellow cachers. About a month ago, in fact, we found ourselves happily mentioned in yet another geocaching forum, (Thanks, TeamThom!)

So today we added a new photo gallery at our Facebook site ( dedicated to the increasing number of geocachers who've adopted our Real Deal Brazil recycled-tarp hat. The photo here, of Chapel Hill, Tenn., geocacher Brad "Monkeybrad" Simmons, was taken during a geocaching trip to Florida's famous gator-filled swamps in early 2010.

For the Muggles among us -- not non-wizards a la Harry Potter, but non-cachers, in geo-speak -- geoaching is an intriguing outdoor activity in which a GPS device is used to find "hidden treasure" stashed in often out-of-the-way spots around the globe. Geocachers tend to be environmentally minded folks; their "cache in, trash out" motto means they spend a bit of time cleaning up the site after finding their cache.

We're thrilled to be part of such a cool and clever pursuit, the swag that tags along!

Okay, so I'm an avid geocacher and my caching handle is "brazilindy". I think I'm destined to have one of these!
