Being almost bald, I wear a hat most times when I'm outside. It feels like my brain (what's left of it) is frying in the OK sun if I don't. Since it's an issue of the sun, I wear one with a wide brim to protect my ears and neck. I only wear the ball cap in the airplane - due to the headset and needing the visor when flying West into the setting sun . . . My son will only wear a ball cap on occasion, and when flying - wouldn't be caught dead in one of my other hats.
