UPF 50+ Sun Protection

From California Polytechnic State University: "The brim area of these hats is excellent, in fact we have never tested anything with 0% transmittance. Congratulations on this protection!"

*For sun protection choose a hat with a 3" brim or larger.

*Hats with vents (lattice) will not provide protection to that area.

*Water, sand, snow, and pavement can reflect the sun. Use sunglasses and sunblock with your hat.

Love it

This hat is easier to wear many more places than a wider brim hat. It protects from the sun and is stylish at the same time. Will wear it often!


Love it! The inner band is very comfortable. The hat’s just the right size. Will wear it often.

Bonnie Crawford
Great summer hat

I think brim is nice width on Explorer, not too small like traditional Fedoras. Also bought the white Taylor, also very nice with wider brim when sun is more intense, and especially like the white Taylor palm.

Alicia Gilliam
Comfortable & well made hat!

This hat is versatile, has a super comfortable and secure fit and has beautiful natural shades of palm woven throughout. Thank you for making sun protection so comfortable and stylish to wear, it’s definitely my new favorite hat and I’ve been wearing many over the decades. I also appreciate that you create it responsibly with fair trade. Such an awesome find on our trip!


This hat is stylish and everyone always asks me where I got it from. Everyone needs at least one hat from this company. I recommend these to anyone who wants to stand out from the crowd!
