Good choice. Over here a neck cape isn’t generally needed, though I can see the merits of them. I hate being hot but I hate burning flesh even more. I don’t venture out in anything over 25° - definitely not with the puppy, other than to play on the back lawn. I have a Tilley T3 which has a decent brim. My T6 airflow ironically has a narrower brim and I think I could do with a wider brim than the T3 to keep the sun off my face & out of my eyes. Hmm.
