Beanie with visor pattern--need some advice

I have a pattern for a beanie with a visor. The pattern calls for using a piece of plastic canvas for the visor, and covering the plastic cut-out visor completely with duct tape before sliding it into the knitted brim area.

I'm making the hat for my husband, who is a raft guide. He's going to be wearing the hat outdoors--in all kinds of weather. It'll get wet--it'll get dirty--and he'll be hand washing it occasionally. I'm worried about how the duct tape will hold up. My experience with duct tape is that it can get gooey around the edges when wet.

Does anyone have an alternative approach? Or experience with how the duct tape will hold up? My husband "really" wants this kind of hat, so a regular beanie without a visor won't work for him.
