i need something for those really hot sunny days to keep the sun from roasting my face. i rarely wear a hat, but i thought of keeping one in the console to have when the sun is very strong. i also thought about getting a spiderweb shade. i know just about everyone that has one loves them. but i prefer the open feel of the top being off. so i would only use the spiderweb shade on the days when the sun was at its strongest. i live in the mountains of NC, so it doesn't get near as hot as some other parts of the world. so having the top off without any shade is bearable on most days (as long as you stay moving).
so i can't decide which to get. by the time i buy a nice hat or visor to keep around, i'll probably spend around $20. which is comparable to the spiderweb shade at around $45-$50. which would you guys have if you were in my situation? bearing in my mind that each will probably only see use a few days (possibly weeks) out of the year.
Took a 1 hour drive with our new Spiderweb Shade and the afternoon sun. No cap on, but on the way back wish I'd had it, as the sun was coming down at the right angle to get in around my sun glasses. I just swung and extended the visor and all was good. I had my cap under my seat but didn't want to stop to pull it out. I prefer the ride without the cap though.
I love my Spiderweb Shade. The wife's car is a convertible and I have no choice but to wear a cap when I'm with her. The wind buffeting it around and "removing" it for me is a pain, even with lid leashes. In the jeep I get to enjoy the feeling of the wind in my hair - okay, on my scalp and in what little bit of hair I have left.
Wanted a jeep for 35 years, finally pulled the trigger

Ditto on the Spiderweb shade. They sent me one several years ago. It lasted longer than I thought it would in the AZ sun. Lasted me about 2 years before the bungees and the material started disentegrating from the weather out here.
