Good coverage nice fabric

Only negative is the rim is not very sturdy and folds easily in wind.

Great, functional hat

Nice wide brim, enough structure to retain shape after being packed in a bag, great adjustability, deflects light rain from face, breathes well and offers great sun protection.

Effective sunhat

The hat is available in different sizes, so ensured a good fit. It is comfortable to wear and offers good sun protection. The strap ensures that it stays attached even in blustery conditions. I bought the purple one for my wife and it's a good colour.

Perfect walking hat

This hat is awesome, made a change from the normal baseball caps I normally wear and protects my neck from the sun also. Winner!

Excellent sun protection

This hat is light, comfortable and provides excellent sun protection. I have had skin cancer so am very careful in the sun and always researching good UV protection. I feel safe wearing this hat and more confident to enjot the outdoors on a sunny day. Excellent value for money too🙂

Fabulous Sunhat!

Bought this sun hat for my daughter who is very pale. Excellent cover, wipeable as it got dirty and it has a strap which means it won’t blow off when she’s playing!

Hello Hoi Kei,

Thanks for your review about our Anti-UV hat!

I'm sorry to read that you were not fully satisfied with the size of this hat.

This model comes in 2 sizes, maybe the other size would be more comfortable for you (60-62cm).

To make sure you never lose your hat in the sea, we have also developed models with a chin strap or storm cords, made specifically for kayak, surfing, sailing and other water activities. You may check out for example this model :

Don't hesitate to bring back your hat to your closest Decathlon store, our team will be more than happy to serve you and propose to you a refund or exchange with another model.

Thank you for your support and see you soon in Decathlon!

Stay healthy!

Additional Product Information


Main fabric : 86.0% Polyamide, Main fabric : 14.0% Spandex ; Inner fabric : 100.0% Polyester cationic

What criteria must a cap meet in order to qualify as ”uv-protective”?

UV protection standards for hats are very specific: The fabric must of course be anti-UV (UPF index greater than 50), but this is not enough to claim the finished product is anti-UV. The hat must also have a wide brim and flap that fully protects the face and the back of the neck. The Trek 500 hat meets these requirements so you can go hiking with complete peace of mind: You are perfectly protected!

Why is polyamide “more resistant”?

Polyamide offers excellent abrasion and tear resistance. Moreover, microorganisms, and mold don’t trouble the synthetic fiber!

How do you measure a fabric's quick drying capacity?

The product is machine washed 3 times, then line dried, then we immerse it in water and measure how long it takes to get back to its pre-wash weight.This hat scored an impressive 5 out of 5 stars, returning to its pre-washed weight in less than 80 minutes!

Product testing

The entire design team was able to test this hat during frequent excursions in the Mont Blanc mountain range, where Forclaz – Decathlon's backpacking brand – has its offices.
