If you’re looking for maximum sun protection, our full sun-sombrero hat will be your go-to choice for headwear. The fabric is also made with the same tough, super-lightweight rip-stop nylon. Mesh panels are built into the front and back for optimal air flow. A closed cell-foam brim will keep the hat afloat should it fall into the drink, and it will maintain its shape over time. A safari cape offers full rear-neck protection; and when it’s not in use, the cape can be tucked back into the hat sleeve and hidden from view. Finally, a drawcord will keep the hat snug for those windy afternoons.
Reason For Being: A hardy sun hat designed to keep you out of the sun and elements. Comes with adjustable chin strap and cord-lock for different sized heads.
Fabric: Majority 2-ply Rip Stop nylon for durability. Mesh on sides for ventilation.
Brim: 4-inch brim made from close-cell foam, giving durability, making the hat float, and keeping out the sun.
UV Protection: Rip-stop nylon carries a sun protection rating of UPF 50+. Includes an additional fold-down cape to protect the sensitive areas at the back of the neck. Mesh vents offer UPF 30+ rating.
This is a great hat. Ive had mine for several years now and it still looks terrific. It has a very deep crown at 4.5 and the brim offers ample protection from the sun.I recently decided that Id like a new hat as this one was starting to bore me. I figured Id purchase a Tilley hat but even though Ive tried a couple of them out Im comparing them to this hat and am disappointed in them especially for the difference in price.This one is excellent value and is remarkably durable.

I have a closet shelf full of hats and the Sun Sombrero is currently my go to hat for sunny summer days. For a wide brim hat it is surprisingly good at handling wind without blowing off or flopping around too much. The chin strap and the cord that facilitates tightening the hat on your head are perfectly designed and make the Sun Sombrero work better for me than any other summer hat I have tried.

I love the Sun Sombrero. It fits very well and can be snugged up in the wind. The neck cover tucks away unnoticed when not in use. Water repels off nicely. Very protective and comfortable.
