    You need both hat and sunscreen

    You won't see a problem until 20 years from now when you get skin cancer

    Of course it depends on the darkeness of your skin

    Cone shaped caps ordinarily hit the back of your pack when you gaze upward and around. Exceptionally irritating. Look at the sunday evening's experience cap. I'd likewise suggest bringing sunscreen. Useful for the backs of your hands, and your nose and neck and maintaining a strategic distance from malignant growth.

    I won't use any sunscreen or bug spray on my skin that melts plastics. I just started to use 100% mineral sunscreen.

    I just shaved my head and now have a lot of exposed skin. Besides sunscreen I purchased this hat yesterday to protect against the brutal rays.

    have always worn a brimmed hat with a back neck cover (as above), no sunscreen
    now I need to get the top of my ear notched like a pig to remove a growth, another on my neck (remove the head ?), etc.

    use sunscreen

    Boonie hat. Helps keep the Spiders and their webs off the top of my head also, when in the woods.

    Probably a good idea. I use the lower spf 30 as the 50 was a bit too much and I did not like the smell or the thickness.

    Don't forget to protect your lips . my bottom lip looked a bit white compared to my top lip. the Dermatologist said it my entire lip had cancer. I did 6 weeks of chemo on my lip, ears , arms and chest . I worked outdoors everyday for more than 30 years to get to that point. now it's long sleeves and long pants year around , full brim hats and sunscreen for face and lips.

    I use sunscreen, so wearing a hat that fits my face is fine
