Are men’s straw hats made out of natural straw?
Our men’s straw sun hats are made out of a variety of materials, including palm straw, paper weave, polyester, and cotton. These materials give each product a unique look, comfortable feel, UV 50+ sun protection, and added durability for long-lasting use. Since you’re likely going to be wearing your straw hat for long periods of time, it’s important that it feels lightweight and comfortable all day long. If wearing a straw hat isn’t for you, Sunday Afternoons also carries a variety of other hats for men, like men’s packable hats, men’s visors, and men’s sun hats with neck cover. The bottom line is, it’s important to choose a hat that is comfortable and provides sufficient protection from the sun.
Will my men’s straw hat protect me completely from the sun?
Sunday Afternoons’ straw hats for men are all third party independently tested to guarantee UPF effectiveness. Every men’s straw hat we produce offers UPF 50+ sun protection, the highest rating achievable. While your men’s straw hat will do an excellent job protecting you from the sun, it cannot protect you completely, so it’s important to take additional measures, like wearing sunscreen and a long-sleeved shirt as well.
Should I still wear sunscreen with my men’s straw sun hat?
Although men’s summer straw hats provide great sun protection, you should still wear sunscreen.
How long will my men’s summer straw hat last?
The lifespan of your men’s summer straw hat depends on how often you wear it. Generally speaking, men’s straw hats should be replaced every few years, if they are worn on a daily basis. Otherwise, you can replace your straw hat the moment you begin to see signs of wear and tear.
