UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. It indicates the amount of UV radiation a fabric will allow to reach your skin.
There are different UPF ratings. A sun protection hat with a UPF rating of 50+ means that 2.5% or less of the UV rays can penetrate the fabric. That said, the larger the UPF rating, the more UV protection you can guarantee.
Definitely! Just as adults need sun protection, it’s the same as kids. A wide brim paired with UPF features brings great coverage while protecting the face, neck, and ears from UV rays.
When it comes to a sun protection hat, it is essential to pay attention to the fabric or material of the hat. This also applies to sun hats for kids. Here are some of the considerations that you need to take:
Wide Brim. Wide brims bring a bigger coverage and ensure that you are protecting, not just your face, but also your ears and neck from sun exposure.
Breathability. A good sun protection hat is made of breathable fabric that allows for proper airflow. A light fabric guarantees that your head will not feel too hot and will not trap any sweat. Additionally, a mesh panel will help protect the skin from the sun and adds ventilation.
UV protection. Fabrics used for sun protection hats have a UV protection rating. Stick to hats that have a rating of over UPF 50+ for the most protection.
Moisture-wicking sweatband. A moisture-wicking sweatband found around the inner crown is a great feature, especially if you sweat a lot. The band can help prevent the sweat from dripping into the eyes.
Last but not the least, your little one should look adorable! So, a vibrant color paired with a cute design is a must. Perfect for snaps that you can look back on for when your lil’ tyke is all grown up!
While it might be tricky, we have a few tips and tricks to help you keep your rambunctious toddler’s sun hat on. Here are a few of them:
Make sure that the hat has a comfy fit. Choosing the right-sized hat for your toddler is key to getting a comfortable fit. The hat is too big or too small may annoy your little one leading them to want to take off their hats. GearTOP hats have solved this problem by incorporating an adjustable drawcord for our sun hats. Loosen or tighten the fit according to your child’s needs!
Secure it in place with a chin strap.While your energetic little one might not actively remove their sun hats, they can fall off while they’re busy at play. This is why having a chinstrap may help your child keep their sun hats on while they’re moving about.
Make it a habit to always wear hats when outside.Perhaps most important of all, make it a habit for your kid (and even you) to wear high-performing sun hats every time you go outside. After doing so, your kid will just get used to the feeling of wearing a hat and would not mind it anymore.
Here is a simple guide to measuring your child’s head size:
