The Life Long Debate - Hats or Sunscreen?

July 17, 2018

Living in San Diego, CA the SDHC staff is lucky enough to spend their personal hours, days off and weekends in the sun, but we often wonder ourselves, is the hat or sunscreen protecting us best from the sun? As a hat company, we pride ourselves in creating products that help our customers protect themselves from the sun in the most stylish way possible, so together we can all enjoy the sun while keeping ourselves protected from it!

            In a study published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine online, the most effective form of sun protection is shade and protective clothing, and we see that as hats. Although wearing sunscreen is extremely important, the use of a medium, large or extra large brimmed hat or visor can increase your chances of getting fewer sunburns. Hats a great way to stay protected from the sun's’ harmful UVB rays, while expressing yourself through a fashionable piece.

With that being said, here are a few of our favorite hats for staying out of the sun! For both men and women, our lifeguard hats are extremely popular for the beach or pool. A number of these can be seen down the Coast Highway, and are a favorite because of how lightweight they are, while still offering maximum sun coverage. The roll-up visors also offer a number of benefits for sun protection and are one of our best sellers. From packability to diversity in the way they can be worn, these visors come in a variety of colors, patterns, and styles, perfect for everyday wear. And last, but certainly not least, our best-selling and most popular unisex hat, the El Campo Ultrabraid sun hat is the most simple way to achieve sun protection. Its five-inch brim, stretch band, and chin cord makes it extremely comfortable and versatile for every day in the sun.

Whether you get your hat from us (we highly recommend it!) or not, make sure you’re staying covered from the sun whenever you outside! Living in California, that might mean keeping a hat or two in your car but trust us, it’s worth saving yourself the sunburn!
