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.

Nice hat

I like the wide brim and look of this hat. Plus the light straw color with offsetting black band. The elastic inside band is a nice touch, but not sure how well it will stay on under windy conditions. Wish it had an optional chin strap.

Great hat!

Am loving Tula hats! This is my second purchase this month and the quality/construction for the price is terrific. The styling of Tula hats feels fresher and less "old man" than many others. I will continue to shop with Tula. Great experience and products!

Good Looking Hat!

For quite some time I have been trying to find a stylish hat that would provide satisfactory protection from the sun. I came across Tula hats on display at a local business. I didn't see one that fulfilled all my wishes, so I checked out Tula's website later that day. All the hats were well displayed along with helpful information about each hat. The Explorer Black Band Hat was what I was looking for. I normally am very hesitant to buy hats without being able to try them on, however I went ahead and purchased this one. I was very concerned that it would not fit well and assumed I would be returning it for a refund. When I received it, I was very relieved with how it fit, and looked. I'm glad I came across Tula Hats. I've finally found a good looking hat that will provide excellent sun protection.

Explorer & Clark Hats

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS HAT! Ordered the Explorer Black Head bank hat for my wife. Ordered the Large/XL so it provides great coverage as hat sits deep on her head. The sun protection is great and the hat is very stylish and my wife has received numerous compliments on the hat & she always refers people to Tula. This is her second Tula hat, the other is the Unisex Clark hat and she also loves this hat and also receives many compliments on this hat. Thank you Tula!
