Bearskin hats

We recently returned from a wonderful visit to Ottawa , where we enjoyed the pageantry of Parliament Hill. It seems that the bearskin hats were originally designed to add height on the battlefield, and they do make quite an impression in a parade. Couldn't help thinking that the must be terribly hot in summer, and wondering how they keep them balanced on their heads.
