Skull cap with UV protection?

Does anyone know a skull cap that provides UV protection? I'm having some difficulty finding something.

Not trying to sound like a SA but just the layer of whatever it is should provide sun protection. Kinda like wearing a shirt.

I never get sunburned while wearing my Headsweats skullcap. Don't know if they rate it as such, but I tend to agree with bbw on this. Sun protection is very important, but I think there is a lot of hype about it.
