As well as being one of the sunniest countries, Australia also has one of the highest ultraviolet radiation ratings (UV, for short) in the world. Choosing a good hat is very important. Bellow shows 5 tips for choosing the best beach hat.
What are you using it for?
Will this hat only be used at the beach or are you looking for something you can wear all year long? Maybe you’re planning on using it in the garden and need something that’ll cover your whole head for hours at a time.
How much protection do you want?
Hats protect your head in two ways—they cover the top of your dome from direct sunlight (which is perfect for guys whose hairline is running away from them) and they have brims on them to protect your face and neck.
How big should that brim be?
A brim can be long or short, depending on your needs and fashion sense. A shorter brim might look a bit more stylish, but it doesn’t protect against the sun as adequately as others.
What kind of material do you want?
Hats come in many different materials, and your needs will be based upon comfort and looks. Cloth, particularly microfiber, is a great choice for men and women looking for something comfortable, airy and easy to clean.
What’s your style?
At the end of the day, your choice in hat might just come down to what looks best on you?
