Why you should read Judie Hughes's Gear Diary instead of bookofjoe


Long story short: she does her homework far better than I do mine.

Exhibit A: The Pocket Cap, subject of yesterday's 3:01 p.m. post here.

Turns out that Judie reviewed this very same cap — personally, in her unique, exquisitely exhaustive, drill-down-until-you-come-out-the-other-side-of-the-planet fashion — on August 2, 2005.

Instead of my lazy-butt style of simply posting what a company or website has to say about its product, she actually uses it.

Then — and only then — does it appear on geardiary.com, warts and all.

Me, I haven't a clue half the time if something's good, bad or ugly: I just throw whatever looks interesting up here.

Thanks, Judie, for this morning's wakeup call.

Keep 'em coming.

But wait, there's more!

Not only did Judie like the hat, she provided a link where you can buy it for $19.99, $4.96 less than the inflated price quoted in my post.

Do note, however, that the lower-priced site has only the Charcoal Gray (below)


in stock.

If you prefer Tan (below),


you'll have to pony up the additional $4.96 and drop $24.95.

And if your heart is set on Green (top, on Judie, from her 2005 review and below),


well, you're out of luck, aren't you?
