I'm learning at the moment and I would never purchase any headgear without putting it on here first for scrutiny by the experts. I had no intentions of purchasing this visor cap but for me at the moment I like to find visor caps and try to highlight what I think is wrong with them, I know it might seem a little A**e backwards.
I'll never be an expert, that obviously takes many years of experience and I don't think I have that long left :-) I think "for me" to know what's right with a visor cap I should first know what's wrong with them.
