Visors are used since decades as protection from sun and UV rays. For the ones who are not aware, a sun visor or a sports visor is a crownless hat consisting simply of the brim with a strap encircling the head. It protects only the face and the strap can function as a sweatband. Visors are widely used in Australia marking the essence of Australian beach culture.
