caps under helmets is plain wrong; unless:

you are bald and avoiding vent tan
you don't care about style

purists unite!

Have to admit, since this thread started, I've been noticing who does and does not wear caps.

I feel like they are slightly more acceptable for the super-early morning rides, otherwise safer to just say "no".

Only way I've found to keep sweat pouring off the sides of my face instead of into my eyes.

I wear them under my helmet in the spring when the roads are dusty. I wear hard contact lenses, and the smallest bit of grit that gets past the sunglasses is quite painful. The additional coverage of the bill helps block quite a bit of dust, and yes, my sunglasses are quite form-fitting.

I wear it when it's below 55F and/or raining, because it makes life a lot nicer.

I also use the bill to force myself to look ahead instead of down. The small bill is just enough to remind me.

Form follows function.
