The Best Hats for the Sun, Beach, or Outdoors

If you’re looking for a men's beach hat, it should offer intense sun protection. Our men's sun hats have a wide brim that is perfect for this. A wide-brim sun hat keeps the sun out of your eyes while offering UV protection.

Our men's summer hats also offer superior ventilation. Our outdoor hats, made from leather or fabric, have vents on the side that allow air to pass through. This prevents what should be cool men's hats from becoming warm and sweaty. Meanwhile, our straw hat men’s options are already lightweight and well-ventilated.

This means that all of our best sun protection hats for men are also cool hats for men. With a men's summer hat like this, you’ll easily be able to beat the heat.

The material you choose for a man's sun hat also impacts its durability. Leather and cloth are generally more durable than straw. So, if the hat is going to be worn on intense hikes or while working, these options may perform better.

Caring for Your Men's Sun Hat

While our hats are tough and durable, there are practices you can do to ensure your sun hat for men will maintain its high level of quality.

In many cases, you’ll want to bring your men's beach hats everywhere you go in the summer. However, make sure not to leave your wide-brim sun hat or your big beach hat in the car. Doing so will expose the hat to too much heat and damage it, especially if it is leather.

We also know that hats, especially men's work hats, will get dirty from time to time. In these cases, brush away the dirt with a light brush. If the dirt is still there, gently wipe it with a cloth that is damp but not completely wet.

Sun Hat FAQ

What Is the Best Type of Hat to Wear in the Sun?

When it comes to men's sun protection hats, some options are better than others. A wide brim is particularly helpful, which makes floppy hats for men or a big sun hat great options. Any large sun hat like this will work out well.

In addition, ventilation is essential. A hat without any ventilation will get sweaty very quickly. This is because the heat from your head will remain trapped within the hat. The sun’s heat is then added to this heat, which makes your head even hotter.

What Color Sun Hat Is Best?

Color matters in sun hat men options. In general, a lighter color will be cooler. This is because lighter colors reflect more sunlight.

What Are the Hats for the Sun Called?

In general, hats for the sun are called sun hats. Any sun hat men will end up wearing can be referred to as a sun hat.

Are Men’s Beach Hats & Men’s Outdoor Hats the Same?
