Summary

A very effective design for all kinds of uses and conditions, either as a mere cap, to full neck protection from sun.

Pros

  • Effective
  • Lightweight
  • Versatile
  • Flexible ventilation

Cons

  • A bit expensive

This is a very useful piece of gear. The neck drape is detachable with simple snaps on front and velcro in back. Allows use as a simple cap, or if more protection is needed, the neck drape can be attached. 

Very well ventilated on the sides of the cap, which can be covered up when the neck drape is attached if desired.  Very lightweight and fast drying. 

I've used it on many multi-day high altitude climbs and short day hikes... and even for sun protection while just mowing the lawn. It's a bit pricey, but given its versatility, highly recommended.
