I've had two fly out so far. Is this another Jeep thing or am I the only dummy? :giggle:

So far I haven't had any fly out yet, I've had a few instances with the doors off

Almost lost one a few weeks ago but somehow caught it. Wish I could wear them in the Jeep because I have long hair and a ton of hats so it’s a good way to keep hair out of my eyes.

None yet, but my wife & I both have those cap leashes.

My wife has a lot more trouble than I do.
Her hat gets blown off a lot.

I thought about a paracord leash to the the soundbar. Haven't lost a hat yet, but only wear it when the sun is at the right spot with the top down.

Roof off, doors on, a ten dollar bill blew right out of my hand as I was approaching toll booth! I was apoplectic! :angry:

I haven't lost any yet. No close calls either. Maybe you're all wearing your cover too loose, or with the bill too high? I like the idea of the tether though, I may go get one just to be safe.

Do you ride with the doors off? With just the top off it’s rarely an issue. Doors off is a different animal.
I’ve had some close calls, but I usually feel it start to lift and then slam my head back into the headrest to catch it.
Tethers are a good idea. My father in law offered me one from his boating days.
