So.. it’s not totally ridiculous.
It does what you need it to do and doesn’t look off-the-charts ‘goofy.’ I’m talking about the REI, $36 Outdoor Research Sun Runner Cap.
Let’s face it (pardon the pun) if you didn’t NEED to protect the skin on your face/ears/neck, you wouldn’t pick this hat to wear, but for those who truly require more comprehensive and long lasting protection than suntan lotion can offer, this hat fits the bill.
I bought it for my husband who plays tennis in the blazing Florida sun.
And I will be borrowing it on windy days when the ol’ straw hat won’t stay on my head.
