I have no hair, none. So any sun on my head is a way for my dermatologist to make money and he has enough of it. I decided it was time to get a good summer hat with good UV protection. My wife actually recommended this one. She has one as well. What's nice it's that it's one of those ... cool you off when wet hats that you can soak. It's great and got here just in time for this year's Field Day. I'll report back after using it this weekend. We're expecting 90-degrees on Saturday so it should be a good test.
