There are three good reasons to wear a visor rather than a baseball-style or bucket hat:

1. It lets heat escape the top of your head, instead of trapping it in.

2. A visor fits better if you have a lot of hair, like I do.

3. They're cool! Visors are modern and classic, if you wear the right one.

A couple of pointers: Get the right size. Make sure the front of the visor [where the logo is] is proportionate to the size of your forehead. The bigger your forehead, the bigger the front of your visor should be. Set it straight. Pull the visor down so the brim sits just above your eyebrows, and check that the strap is parallel to the ground. If your visor tilts up, you won't get maximum sun protection -- a sunburn goatee looks bad on anyone. If it angles down, you'll resemble a riverboat blackjack dealer. Get the fit just right and you'll look like a true pro.
