Outdoor fun is never quite the same withoutsun hats,visors, and caps alongside wearing sunscreen. Pack them first! These are some of the most important items to take with you to put your mind at ease. 

Knowing that you’re protecting your skin from damage as you spend time outdoors allows you to focus on what’s important - having FUN.

Fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and premature aging will be the least of your worries when you have adequate sun protection with you.

Mountaineers enjoying the view while wearing GearTOP sun hats

If you’re spending time in the mountains... 

According to this 1999 study from the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology, you are exposed to higher levels of UV rays when you’re high up in the mountains. But, wearing premium sun protection gear alongside sunscreen should take care of this in a jiffy.

Great for treks, hikes, or even just camping, choose from the lineup of affordable yet premium quality GearTOP sun hats. Pick from the different styles of theFloater Series sun hat or even the Wanderer Series hat

These selections bring high levels of sun UV protection while providing great coverage with their wide brims. The Floater and the Wanderer series hats have snaps at the side for a different look while allowing you to optimize your view.




Bonus: If you’re spending time on the slopes...  

If you happen to live in a sunny area and want a change of scenery, cooling off on the icy slopes might be your idea of an ultimate summer adventure. However, spending time in a frosty paradise is hardly an escape from UV radiation.  

Make sure that you shade your face from the cold, wind, and UV rays when you wear our versatile balaclavas alongside your daily SPF. 

Choose from two different constructions. If you’re into a looser fit but would still while still having the option of full-face protection, the hood Rider balaclava’s got you covered. For a more snug fit, the Racer balaclava is one for you! Both these options are multifunctional that you can wear as a helmet liner, open face mask, full face mask, neck gaiter, and even as a face mask.





No matter where you’re headed, it’s always important to have your sun protection gear with you. Guarding your face ensures that you’re protected against sun damage that causes premature aging, and in more extreme cases, skin cancer.

We know that premium outdoor gear can leave your bank account bruised. So, we took it upon ourselves to address that with our affordable yet high-quality outdoor gear.
