by melissa whillas May 04, 2023

In our sunburnt country, protection from the sun is essential for every Australian. As an Australian owned business, we understand the need for sun protection, particularly in the realm of hats. In this post, we will explain what SPF50+ means, and why our hats are the best in the game. The sun isn’t kidding here in the land down under, and neither are our hats

Kakadu Sun Hats

What Does SPF50+ Mean?

SPF50+ refers to the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) rating of a sunscreen or sunblock product. It indicates the level of protection it offers against the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation. An SPF50+ rating means that the product provides a high level of sun protection and is designed to block approximately 98% of the sun's UVB rays.

What Are The Best SPF50+ Hats?

When it comes to hats, an SPF50+ rating means that the hat provides excellent sun protection for the areas it covers, such as the face, neck, and scalp. It suggests that the hat has been specifically designed and manufactured to block a significant amount of UV radiation and reduce the risk of sunburn and other sun-related skin damage.

At Kakadu Traders Australia, our hats are known for their exceptional sun protection capabilities due to several factors:

Fabric quality: We use high-quality materials, such as heavy-duty canvas, leathers or tightly woven fabrics, which offer excellent UV-blocking properties. These fabrics and leathers are effective in preventing the penetration of harmful UV radiation. Kakadu offers a diverse range of protective headwear for the whole family.

Wide brims: Many Kakadu hats feature wide brims that provide extensive coverage to the face, neck, and ears. Wide brim hats have always been a staple in Australian fashion, and our company seeks to preserve and celebrate classic Aussie headwear.  The broad brim helps to shield these areas from direct sun exposure and reduce the risk of sunburn.

Are Kakadu Hats UPF50+?

In addition to the SPF rating used for sunscreens, hats can also have a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating. Kakadu Traders Australia hats often have a high UPF rating, indicating their ability to block a significant amount of UVA and UVB rays. Therefore, for the most comprehensive protection from the sun, our well-designed hats are a excellent choice.

Design features: In the Australian bush, garments not least the hat undertakes some wear and tear. Kakadu hats are designed with practicality and durability in mind. Our hats incorporate features like adjustable chin cords, ventilation eyelets, ventilation mesh and ultra lightweight fabrics, so as to keep your hat comfortable and intact. These design elements enhance sun protection and provide added comfort in hot conditions.

It's important to note that while hats with high SPF or UPF ratings offer excellent sun protection, they should be used in conjunction with other sun protection measures like sunscreen, sunglasses, and seeking shade during peak sun hours to ensure comprehensive protection against UV radiation. Nevertheless, the hat is the best choice of gear one can make for sun safety, and our extensive range has styles and shapes for all heads.
