Sun Hats for Men

Sun Hats for Men

With more than 3.3 million people diagnosed with skin cancer each year, the need for quality sun protection is vital to safely enjoy outdoor activities. That’s why at UV Skinz® you’ll find the best sun hats for men designed to block 98% of the sun’s harmful rays and protect your skin from damage, premature aging, and an increased risk of skin cancer.

Like our Men’s Activewear, UV Neck Shields, and Accessories, our sun hats for men are made with chlorine and saltwater-resistant fabric that’s not afraid of getting wet. In fact, our sun hats for men are the lightweight, quick-drying and ultra-comfortable UPF hats men of all ages will wish they had sooner for every fishing, hiking, biking, and beach day trip.

A Note About “SPF” Hats

What’s commonly marketed as “men’s SPF hats” is actually something entirely different. You see, SPF is a sun protection factor rating system for sunscreen products that only account for how effective that sunscreen is against UVB rays. UPF, on the other hand, is a rating system for hats and clothing used to indicate how effective the fabrics are at blocking out the sun’s harmful rays.

While sunscreen uses chemicals or ingredients that are rubbed into the skin to absorb UVB rays, sun hats for men are made from UPF fabrics that absorb or reflect UVA and UVB rays from reaching your face, neck, and ears (depending on the style of hat you’re wearing).

When it comes to shopping for men’s sun protection hats, knowing the difference between UPF and SPF can help make sense of the sun hats for men you see marketed as “SPF”.

What does UPF 50+ Certified Mean?

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates the level of UV radiation a fabric allows to reach your skin. In order to receive the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, a sun-protective fabric only needs to have a UPF 30 rating. We’ve gone beyond the minimum requirements to give our customers UPF 50+ rated apparel, the highest and most excellent sun protection fabric available.
