Time for hats and caps!
With nice headwear, you quickly give your outfit your own twist and you ensure that spicy and stylish look. In addition, it is super useful against burning your scalp. Do you want to pimp your wardrobe or do you just like to wear something nice on your head? Then choose a super cute hat!
Cap or hat?
The cap has traditionally been the headgear of workers. Only at the front has a sun-protective peak. You do see baseball caps more than ever, which are sometimes worn backward and even indoors. The disadvantage of the cap compared to the hat is that the peak only provides shade on one side. While the hat can provide more protection than the cap, there are still many who prefer to use the cap. But really, what matters is the kind of protection you get and the fashion style you deserve.
The sun hat
Sun hats with a wide brim are particularly suitable for protecting you from the sun during a walk. A condition for good headgear against the sun is a certain degree of airiness or ventilation so that you perspire less quickly on your head. The best-known sun hat is therefore made of straw and it still works. However, check with straw that there are no openings or have fallen because UV rays can still reach the scalp. Slouch hats made of linen or cotton are also suitable for the summer. After all, such a hat feels nice and light on the head. A wide brim provides shade on the face and neck and even protects your eyes from the blazing sun when you’re not wearing sunglasses. After all, felt hats are all-rounders. They are both dirt and water repellent and resistant to high temperatures.
Hat types and features
Special hat brands such as Tilley, Hatland, and Sunday Afternoons offer both fashionable and highly functional headwear for men and women and also specifically for hikers. Don’t be alarmed, but there are even hats and caps in which you can hide a credit card, hats that float, or hats with a wide brim that can be folded in different ways. The neck flap is very useful for the hiker in the sun, even when the desert is absolutely not insight: it is preferably detachable and very functional.
Furthermore, specialized hiking hat brands offer you all kinds of extras, such as protection against mosquitoes, windproofness of the fabric, and water tightness. Keep in mind that waterproofing and windproofing will come at the expense of ventilation, which is so important in summer, making this type of headwear more effective at other times of the year. And water-resistant material usually means there’s a coating applied to the fabric that will almost certainly disappear after a few washes.
Bonnet: Against the cold
Also in other seasons covering the head is not an unnecessary luxury for reasons other than sun protection. It is said that one-third of body heat escapes through an uncovered head. For optimal insulation in winter, the headwear should fit as closely as possible to the head. Large air-filled spaces should be avoided as cold air can collect there. Wool and synthetic material (fleece), processed in an elastic hat, are the best heat holders these days. For ethical reasons, no one can come up with fur anymore. Nevertheless, fur incorporated into the edge of a hood did have a function: it kept the snow out of your eyes for the most part. Fortunately, artificial fur does this too.
As a winter hiker, realize that as long as you’re on the move, it’s not that hard to get warm on the road. Adjust your clothing choice, and also your headgear, accordingly. So rather a thin hat that you can put on and take off than a thick hat that is only useful when you are standing still.
