Sunday Afternoons hats offer incredible performance! We don`t say that lightly Sunday Afternoons are committed to designing headgear that protect the wearer from the Sun and they achieve this in spades. You will find that they are not the coolest hats image-wise (you may get a few second looks) but the protection they offer is invaluable.
I wore the Adventure Hat for the first time while trekking last year I normally get a sunburned face nose and ears in the first day or so of a walk - this is because I`m usually a bit slow at putting the lotion on - and the run-of-the-mill hats you can get don`t achieve full protection.
Last year due to the Adventure hat I didn`t get sunburned at all! The hat performed superbly - though after three weeks it looked a bit worse for wear - its recommended that you roll it to store it but on the Trail I wasn`t too careful.
So if you are concerned about performance over style then checkout Sunday Afternoons!
