I need a cap to keep the sun off at the pool and something I can stuff in the pocket of my rain jacket in winter. I have an intense (and irrational) dislike of American boomers and their baseball caps they wear like underwear.

I’m probably going to try one of these:

Is the first one waxed? Just remember that they wear really warm and your head is soaked in sweat but not rain. I've had a couple but switched to ventille. Re-waxing a cap is a pain. Maybe try a ventile cap/hat. Breathable for the hot and sheds water. American trench does one as well as others.

Neoshell. Light, waterproof, breathable. This is from Subdued Japan. But most have branding.

Neoshell from Teton Bros. Their US website (Berengia) does not stock it.

use your rain jacket's hood and just get a summer wide brim gardening hat for the pool and working outside.

I’ve tried different style hats in the past, but I’m just not a hat guy. I just want something to keep the elements off my head when there is a need. Preferably something that doesn’t look too dorky.

Hats with tailored clothing often look contrived these days, but that’s nothing compared to the vintage/workwear crowd. I like a lot of Jake’s stuff, but it’s a hard pass on this look for me:

Good, then he can keep them in his jacket pocket and won’t look like a Fedora Lounge Dweeb as they are nothing that he is looking for even with the pocket bulge.

Dropbear Dropbear is not ready to give up on life and wear them like the geriatrics who wear them in the US.

If you don’t mind logos then there are similar hats in waterproof fabrics in that biking-style. Most have UV protection too.
I figured if I got the cap in black I could color that little embroidered brim logo with a black sharpie.

that's thinking. There are others with same colour logos so they are not seen.

I did not know there was a Louis Vuitton bucket hat. Laughably it is priced at £545.

As worn by a now famous loadsamoney roofer and football hooligan with a flare stuck up his arse. His might be a knock off though.

I bought a Raffia Stetson last weekend. I am still on the lookout for Shantung and Milan straw hats. I have a few Panama's and a Toyo.
