17 Best Big Hats With Wide Brim For Summer 2022

To wear or not wear a big hat, is that even a question? It is almost Summer, and with the pandemic behind us and most people vaccinated and infection numbers dwindling, there is one thing on many peoples mind-being out and about!

But with the outdoors comes a different and absolutely existent risk that seems to be increasing everyday as our O-Zone layer dwindles and UV rays shine stronger through- sun damage from those pesky UV rays which are more prevalent during the summertime. What must a prudent fun seeking person do? Sungrubbies is here to say that you can most definitely block out the sun, not the fun with a big hat that is sun protective!

One of the best ways men and women can prevent sun damage and protect their vulnerable facial skin and shoulders is by wearing an extra wide big brimmed sun hat, preferably one that is certified UPF 50 (blocks out 98% of UV rays). Our favorite wide brimmed big sun hats all lab test out at UPF 50, but do not sacrifice any style while providing sun protection (we always recommend for you to also wear your favorite sun block, remember the best sunscreen is the one you will actually wear) in addition to any physical sun protection like sun hats as sometimes UV rays can bounce up from the ground/ocean/reflective surfaces
