What hats offers the best sun protection?
If you’ve ever had to put in long hours on the job in the harsh Australian sun you know you need a bloody decent hat to keep your skin protected. So what makes a good sun hat?
First of all you need a wide brim that helps block more sun off your face, neck and back. Our wide brim collection is growing every year as they really do offer the best protection against the suns rays. With a 9cm + brim width our wide brims have got you covered for more hours in the day from dawn till dusk.

When it’s hot enough to fry an egg on a tin roof you need a hat with some ventilation to prevent yourself from over heating and even sun stroke in extreme circumstances. Our ventilation mesh hats allow heat to escape out the sides while the wide brim still takes care of business. As not all hair lines are equal, we have full and half mesh available so you can choose where your head needs protection.
