Can boating hats get wet?
Nearly all of our boating and fishing hats do great in and near the water. Even while wet, they will maintain their structure and UPF 50+ sun protection. In fact, most of our fishing hats float! Just remember to rinse your hat in fresh water after it has been submerged in salt water to help maintain its longevity.
Do boating hats lose pigmentation due to sun exposure?
All Sunday Afternoons hats undergo stringent color fastness testing. However, over time the color may naturally begin to fade. We understand that it can be concerning to see your favorite bucket hat lose its color due to ultraviolet exposure. Rest assured this is normal and will not affect the performance of your hat. What’s more, all Sunday Afternoons hats and accessories carry a lifetime guarantee. If your hat happens to have a manufacturing defect, please let us know and we will gladly repair or replace it at no cost.
