Invest in a nice Tilley hat (about $80). They make a bunch of styles, they're washable and nearly indestructible. Should be a staple hanging over the seat of every guys Jeep. The right size will stay on driving around town and the strap should work at highway speeds, although in all honesty I haven't put it to the test at those speeds.

I keep a couple of hats that I don't care if they blow away or not in the Jeep. I'm not going bald, I'm just growing a reverse Mohawk. LOL!

I wear a ball cap all the time even my wife doesn't know if I am bald or not. You don't have to wear them backward so you don't lose them just tilt your head slightly downward the aerodynamics on the bill will keep your hat on.

I use sunscreen, a bucket hat, or a boonie hat to protect my big bald head.

I have sun tan lotion in the Jeep but I haven't used it. I have a sun screen installed now and that seems to be enough.

Hey All,

I have a two part strategy.

First I'm getting close to 60 but despite that I still grow hair - lots of it and part two is that my hair color is such that I reflect most of the sun rays back into outer space. Never let it be said that I contribute to global warming!

I started eating Elmer's glue at an early age. And pushing 60 nothing has fallen off yet. Still have all my hair but the sun is still brutal on upper parts.

Owning a jeep and having hair don't go hand in hand.
My hat blew out and then my comb flew out.
I gave up.

Ya know I never thought of a boonie hat until you posted. I went to the Army Navy and bought one the other day, It is the only hat with a brim that I can keep on my head. Good choice and thanks for posting, I now have some shade on my my face, albeit minimal, whereas before there was none.

Tried to wear a hat, couldn't keep it on traveling the interstate. Spiderweb shade is the way to go!

I have several boonie hats from my Army days.
A few woodland and a few desert.
Here in Florida, the desert ones are not as hot.
I can run 70 with the doors off and as long as I have my chin strap on, I am fine.
I keep one hanging over the shifter and one tucked in the pocket behind the front seat for my wife.

You need to build up a good base. Get out in the sun early.

Starting in the spring, work in the yard on weekends, talk some walks during lunch.

Let that tan build up slowly. You don't want the burn, and then the peeling.

I have one of those high speed/low drag heads as well. I've developed a system for driving with a soft top Jeep here in southern Arizona based on temps.
  • Below 40 degrees = Top and doors on.
  • 40 - 85 degrees = Naked with a ball cap.
  • 85 - 100 degrees = Spider Web Shade with a ball cap.
  • 100 - 110 degrees = Bikini top.
  • Above 110 degrees = Soft top back on with the AC cranked.
I haven't lost a hat so far even though I have had some good gusts of wind blow it off, I've been able to catch it. I like the weekends when I let the sides grow a little, they become like velcro and help keep the hat on.

Off roading, the boonie hat is the way to go.

The Spiderweb Shade works well. Cuts down the sun and diverts a some of the wind. Not problem keeping my ball cap on. Strapping a boonie hat on would work too. Those keep the sun off your ears and neck too.
