Men’s Sun Hat FAQs
What is the best hat for sun protection?
When it comes to sun protection, the wider the brim, the more protective. If you’re planning to spend time out in the midday sun, we suggest you choose a men’s sun hat that’s got you covered—literally. Our Original Adventure Hat is one of our most protective men’s wide brim sun hats. It boasts a dermatologist recommended 4” brim and 7 ½” neck cape to keep your face and neck nice and shady. Plus, it’s made of fabric that offers a UPF 50+ certified breathable sun rating, so you don’t have to sacrifice temperature for sun protection.
If that’s not your style, we’ve got a variety of sun hats for men with all sorts of comfortable sun protection features—like wide brims, breathable fabrics, ventilation, neck capes, ear flaps, and more.
Does any hat block UV rays?
The average men’s hat may provide shade from the sun, but that doesn’t mean you’re safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays. While nearly all hats offer at least some UV protection, in order to really protect yourself, you need a hat made with a wide brim and fabric with an ultraviolet protection factor of 50+. Luckily we run UPF testing on products we make and 99% of our men’s hats feature an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 50+, the highest rating achievable.
What should I look for in a sun hat for men?
In addition to providing sun protection, men’s sun hats should be both comfortable and practical. Our men’s sun hats achieve both through tons of cool features. Check out our men’s packable sun hats for sun protection on-the-go. Our folding brim hats for men allow you to fold the hat down, making it easy to carry and stash away. Most importantly, make sure your men’s sun hat has a wide brim, UPF 50+ sun protection and is a style you will actually wear. It’s no use buying a men’s sun hat with maximum sun protection only to let it sit in your closet unworn!
