How to Pick the Perfect Sun Hat

The skin on our face, ears and neck is much thinner than elsewhere on our body and thus more likely to be harmed by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. We all need to wear a UFF50+ sun hat to protect us from the harmful rays of the sun.

Here is a list of our top tips to help you pick the perfect sun protective and stylish sun hat.

1. Best Brim

A hat with a brim of at least 2.75 inches or 7.5cm is ideal as it shades the face, ears and neck. It can also prevent more than 50% of UV rays from reaching the eyes.

2. Clever Colours

Darker colours tend to absorb UV rays better than white or pastel colours of the same fabric.

3. Get Comfortable

Before buying a sun hat, think about how active you will be when you will be wearing it. You will be more likely to wear your hat if it is comfortable. Choose a hat that can be adjusted to fit, especially handy on windy days.

4. Savvy Sun Protection

For guaranteed UV protection, check the UPF rating of the hat. UPF50+ is highest and best rating.

5. Durability and Longevity

A good sun hat will last you a number of years and remind you of many good times and adventures. Choose a hat that will work for your lifestyle. Ensure the hat comes with instructions on how to clean and maintain it.

6. Superb Style

Style is important when buying anything, especially a sun hat. Choose a hat that will best suit your style and colour.

7. Sensible Size

Select the right size hat for your head. Follow a hat size guide to measure for the perfect fit.
