    I have a couple of the long billed caps and I've found them to be very efficient sails in the wind.
    I've learned to attach them to my shirt with a leash, but even then the leash is just something else that gets in the way.

    I am getting ready to pull the trigger on one of these. Reviews I have read on them are all positive but I was hoping someone here could chime in with an experience for peace of mind. Anyone?

    Looks like it will get the job. Skin cancer is no joke.
    I personally use the Sun Day Afternoon hat in the sand color. Not stylist but does an excellent job covering you face and neck, light weight, mesh ventilation, chin strap, adjustable and costs only $30. It's bleach out from the sun but going strong after 6 years of wear.

    I bit the bullet and ordered one of these. Used it the other day and it worked well. I really like the solid brim so there is no flop.

    I use a similar style boonie hat I got a Wally World for $10. Its a swiss tech paddler boonie hat made of SPF material with a wide brim & chin strap. The hat also has ventilated panels on the side & a neck drape that tucks into the brim. I bought it 2 years ago & it is performing nicely. I have no complaints & I like the look

    Reading through the hat thread because I now have a brand new 3" scar that closed a 2" diameter hole in my cheek for just this reason!
