    We need a V3i hat

    I love my V3i and wish White’s would make a V3i or even Vx3/V3i hat. I have to wear a hat outdoors at all times because of skin cancer. Currently I wear my Whites Blue hat or AT pro hat. You made a MX Sport hat, why not the V3 hat? I’ts a great machine why not get the extra advertising for it?

    Just venting and wishing. MacDog

    I don’t know Mack. I’ve been waiting for a V3i hat and gear for years. If they had hats, I’d own two, one for on the hunt and one for just wearing around town.

    Post it on the talk directly to whites section and add a bumper sticker for the V3i. Branding seen makes branding known.

    I wear my Whites blue ball cap every where, my wife wants to burn it because it’s so worn out. I like it but also want to brag that I run the V3i. At our club all the minelab guys laugh because they have the Best machines. I’m usually in the running for finds of the month and have won numerous finds of the year category. They all know I run the V3i but it would even be better if I had a V3i hat.

    New member here, who is also interested in getting a V3i cap.

    In fact, on YouTube there's a guy who has a camo V3i cap. Here's the link: <Removed link due to inappropriate language>. Check it out at the 2:50 mark, and you can see the V3i label at 2:54.

    So, where did he get this? I want one! WAAAAAAHHHH!

    Sorry, I guess I violated a rule by posting that link. Should have read forum guidelines before getting all excited by seeing that hat! But why was the link removed "for inappropriate language?" Was it the You Tuber that was swearing? Could I post a screen shot of the hat instead? Confused and a noob...but still sorry.

    Yes, a screen shot of the hat would be fine.

    Yes. The guy in the video is swearing from the git-go. This is a family friendly forum and that type of language has no place here .... No problem. First time - new member - honest mistake. Enjoy the forum and all it has to offer. Just please keep our family friendly venue in mind when posting .... Fox Forum Moderator

    OK, here are the screenshots from the guy's video showing his White's camo hat and the side of it where it says Spectra V3i.

    So, are these available somewhere...and if not, why not? I'm so tired of seeing those Garrett camo hats for their AT Pro. We need one of our own, and frankly, this one looks cool!

    So, anybody at White's...what's the deal with the camo hat for the Spectra V3i, as pictured above? Was this a special promotion? Can you make more? Please?

    I made a logo for my detecting page on IG and YT utilizing Microsoft paint, copy and pasting. I then had it printed by Vista Print to make a bumper sticker. It turned out excellent. They had an option to take the same image and have it put on a hat for 18.00. I imagine if you really wanted a spectra V3i hat that you could do the same with it. I’be thought about it and might do so before spring, if I do i’ll Post it.

    Something I would like to see available for purchase too would be a White’s jacket or coat. One that’s really decked out, high quality and with lots of color looking similar to a NASCAR coat. I’d be willing to pay a couple hundred dollars for a quality coat like that. What a great way to advertise the White’s name too.

    If you can get a MX Sport hat from White’s why can”t I get a V3i hat? I don’t want to special order a cheap knock off I want the real thing.

    I’ve tried about 10 times to submit a photo. For some reason just before Christmas I only get an error of “upload of file error” when submitting photis.

    This is my vest I got from a dealer a couple years ago. I think he said there were 12 made for a special reason.

    I do not believe White's factory ever offered a V3i Specific hat. The Camo is an aftermarket, someone had made for them outside of White's.

    Hats can be tuff in that to get a good price, one needs order really big numbers, and then set on them for a log time while they sell.

    We will look into it.

    My 2¢ worth: When I wanted hats and logos for my business, I went to the local ARC. They employ mentally handicapped people and do a superb job on the embroidery. And judging by the posts, these guys REALLY want a V3i hat. It doesn't seem like you will sit on them to long. Example of their work (front & back views):

    I had this Sprayway jacket ordered years ago here and had it embroidered for use when i was out detecting. Getting a little worn now but lovely and warm and great volume in the hood so you can wear it Hood up with hat and headphones on. Cost around £110 Uk at the time.
