Hats for Chinese martial arts
We use the modern baseball cap and cool wrap for keeping heads from overheating when training outdoors. Sometimes  there is particularly attractive scenery (like a beach) where you just have to be there as opposed to in front of a green screen. Other times, when we are working with the long staffs (lau gar) or doing archery, atlatls and javelins, indoors is just not practical.                                    
There are three different hats (usually translated as hat-scarves) worn by different Taoist sects.
You will want to measure the diameter of your head - easiest if someone helps - with a tape measure. Usually, the maximum diameter is just above the eyebrows. Make sure to account for hair!
