Lame question...yah, but just want to get some opinions since if never worn one. I don't want to go buying a half dozen of them trying to find the right one.
I usually just turn my ball cap backwards under my Lid but I wanna get something thats lighter. What do you guys recommend? Don't know much about them. How about the ones with elastic that you don't need to tie everytime? No clue??

I usually just use a bandanna. I've tried a ball cap, but not very comfortable, the plastic strap on the back of the cap digs into the top part of my forehead.

I've been using a thing called a buff. It's a seemless tube made out of some stretchy fabric. Dries quick. Can be used many ways, but I usually just pull it over my head and let the excess fall over the back, it covers my neck that way.

Just watched a few of the vids on the buff and really like it. You can do just about anything you want with that thing. This looks like the way to go. Thanks Sprink!!

And to answer your previous question Moe... I have one do/due/doo rag and I don't use it much. I do use pandanas as you said. But I'm interested in this buff thing. Maybe order one for me & the wife...

First of all lets clear this up ........ The term is "Dew rag" as in keep the dew off yer head. Now that we got that out of the way they have purpose other than what some say about the costume look blah blah.
Purpose is to keep your hair oils from getting your lid dirty. Yeah they keep the dew off your head too but the reason mostly that I will wear one is in the hot weather you dunk in a stream, lake or under a faucet and it provides free air conditioning to your over heated noggin while wearing a 55 gallon drum on your head..........Gawd I love Michigan(major sarcasm)

That is all.

I'll have to snag a 'UV one when i get paid friday. Beats the hell out of using sunblock or wearing a hoodie in the heat to keep my neck covered.


----edit---
keeeeeerist! 10$ for S/H? Think I'll see if rei has one in a colour I can tolerate or wait for someone else local to carry them

Might be able to go to the REI store and have them order the one you want and they will pick up the shipping tab on a bulk order

Check this out Nobody......After buying the first one through planetbuff with a $6 something ship fee I went to flea bay and bough the black...$18.50 free priority ship.
As far as REI caveman, I went there and asked about ordering one. The guy there was really cool and took some time with me on the computer to show me what they could get. They are very limited in choices..........maybe a dozen or so in odd somewhat fruity patterns. Didn't bother to ask ship cost after that.
