Why UPF 50+ Matters
You already know that it's vital to wear sunscreen and sun-protective clothing to keep your body out of the sun's harmful rays, but did you know that it's equally important to safeguard the face and eyes from the sun?
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates the level of UV radiation a UPF sun hat allows to reach your skin. In order to receive the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, a sun hat only needs to have a UPF 30 rating.
What’s more, the Skincare Foundation even says wide-brimmed sun protection hats can help shade certain parts of the face and scalp that are difficult to reach with sunscreen, offering an extra layer of protection to those easy-to-miss areas! Not to mention, sun hats also double up on the sun-blocking power for particularly vulnerable areas, including the face and eyes.

We’ve gone beyond the minimum requirements to give our customers UPF 50+ rated sun-blocking hats, the highest and most excellent sun protection fabric available.

Sun Hat FAQ
1. What are the best hats for sun protection?
The best sun blocking hats are UV protection hats. UV protection hats, or as some like to call them, “sunscreen hats,” are made with a UPF fabric specifically designed to block UVA and UVB rays from reaching your skin.
2. Why should you wear a sun hat?
Wearing a sun hat (especially a UPF sun hat) can effectively block harmful UVA and UVB from reaching your skin, minimizing the risk for cancer-causing sunburns or skin irritation caused by the sun. We recommend wearing sports, water, or gardening hats with UV protection anytime you’re outdoors, even if the sun is hiding behind the clouds for part of the day.
3. What is the best color for a sun hat?
Interestingly enough, darker colors, like shades of red and blue were found to better block out the sun than lighter colors, especially yellow sun hats. Since UPF sun hats or UV protection hats effectively block out a majority of the sun’s rays, the best color for a sun hat depends on your personal preference.
4. Do hats protect you from sunburn?
Not all hats will protect you from sunburn. For instance, a trucker cap designed with perforations in the back will allow sunlight in, increasing your chance of sunburn. Meanwhile, UV protection hats are designed to be sun proof hats you can count on to protect your scalp from sunburn. Certain UPF sun hats with wide brims will help prevent sunburn on the neck, face, and ears, unlike a baseball cap sun protection hat, which will primarily cover just the head and face.
5. What's the difference between a bucket hat and a sun hat?
A bucket hat features a specific brimmed design that slopes downward over the ears, back of the head and face. A sun hat can feature any hat style, but creating using a UPF fabric to make it an effective sun blocking hat.
6. Does a hat block UV rays?
While most hats provide some level of UV protection, not all hats are created to specifically block UV rays, and not all hats will effectively block them out. When shopping for a hat, we recommend looking for UV protection hats certified to block out the sun. If possible, shop for sun proof hats with wide brims or neck, ear, and face coverage for optimal sun protection.
