Wear it for a number of reasons.
1) Keeps the sun off the neck, ears, and face. Skin cancer sucks!
2) Keeps the gnats off better than anything else.
3) I sight fish reds almost exclusively, and paired with the right glasses and casting platform, it gives me a major advantage over what others are NOT seeing. It helps cut the glare.
4) In the summer you dip it in the ice chest water and you are kept cool for quite a while.
Does it look wierd?... yes!!!! But helps while on the water, so I don't really care what it looks like.
