Very comfortable

Light weight and cool, feels very comfortable under the sun.

Good everyday hat

Great hat, nice fabric. Adjustable to fit well around the head. Haven’t needed to wash it yet to know how easy it is to get stains or marks out.

Not for me

Bought this for my holiday. Didn’t realise it was a men’s hat. It was too big for me. I will give it away to a man. I’m sure it’s a great hat but not for me.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 15% Spandex
  • 85% Polyamide

Inner fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic

Which standard 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!

How is polyamide is more resistant?

Polyamide offers excellent abrasion and tear resistance. Furthermore, this synthetic fiber is not susceptible to micro-organisms or mold!

How do you measure a fabric's quick dry 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 under 80 minutes after immersion!
