Function definitely trumps form for this outdoors hat, a wide-brimmed cap with 360 degrees of solar coverage and some sort of Asian peasant aesthetic thing going on.
But for failsafe sun protection, the company guarantees to keep your nose, cheeks, lips, eyes, ears, and neck safely shielded from UV rays.
Indeed, the Adventure Hat is even patented (#5,664,261). This company is serious about blocking sunlight and keeping your face in the shade. The fit is nice, too, and forward visibility is not an issue.
Bonus: It’s lighter than it looks, weighing in at just 3 ounces.
- Coolmax wicking sweatband
- 4 inch brim
- 7 inch rear veil to cover neck and upper back
- Foam core brim adds floatation (if you drop it off the boat)
It has a dark underside for eye comfort. It packs flat for travel. Available colors: cream, sand, tan, white, chaparral, sage, blue, primrose and lavender.
