I'm in southern sunny Florida, It gets darn hot & I'm a bald guy. Last summer I packed on the spf 50 every morning, wore a short sleeve company polo shirt, pants, & a fishing type brim hat. I hate wearing hats but I gotta do it. Anybody found any hats that block the sun but breath really well?

Columbia makes a great hat. It is super light, flexible, and I bought it at Sports Authority for around $20. Kinda like this one.

I used to never use sunscreen, I mean, why? I'd been outside in the sun my whole life.

Then I had a sore on my nose that wouldt go away for over a year or so, went to the doctor found out it was Basal Cell Carsanoma(skin cancer).

So they "degloved" my nose, and scrapped it out with what I could tell was just some sharp intrument, sewed me back up. Oh yeah, they only used a local, so I was awake!

To this day (surgery was 4 years ago, my nose is still numb)

Now, who wants to wear sunscreen? I know I do! And a big ol hat.
