Learn About Our Volume School Hats Program

Jan, 18

Sun exposure during childhood appears to set the stage for the development of both melanoma and other skin problems later in life. Not only is young skin more vulnerable to damage by the UV rays of the sun but people on average get 80% of their lifetime sun exposure by age 18. In Australia, the skin cancer capital of the world, hats are required to be worn by students everyday or they are required to play in the shade. Teaching children to play sun safe in school, where peer pressure is high, can be a challenge. When you add school regulations, which sometimes forbid reasonable sun safety practices, keeping kids safe under the sun can be a real challenging.

How To Determine Your Hat Size

Many companies provide unique sizing charts for each of their hats. We try to have as many of these charts across all our sun hats. Despite that, we decided to take this a step further and offer the closest thing to a universal metrics system that caters to both men and women. That said, and without further ado, please find below the sizing charts along with instructions on how to measure your head circumference.

In order to determine your head size, please size your head circumference by measuring above the ears and across your eyebrows (in centimeters, if possible). Please stick your finger under the tape and there you have head circumference! If you fall between measurements go for the next hat size up. If a hat for any reason runs small or large, we will indicate that in the product description*.

* Please note, One Size Fits Most Hats indicates Size Medium (or 57cm)
