|Tula Lifeguard Sun Hat - The Tula Lifeguard Hat needs more daring company than lounge chairs and water wings. The Tula hat provides a wide 5" brim offering superior protection for those long days in the sun. This hat stays connected to your head with a nylon chinstrap, or easily stores on your back when the sun finally surrenders. A cotton foam sweatband helps secure the hat where you want it and keeps you dry. The lightweight palm material cleans easily, dries quickly and it even floats! All Tula hats have been tested by California Polytechnic State University and were awarded the 50+ UPF rating, the highest possible for sun protective gear. The Tula Lifeguard Hat may not save your life, but it will save your day on the water!
Sizing for Tula Lifeguard Sun Hat:
My doctor suggests I wear a wide-brimmed hat for UV protection. This hat is the ultimate. It has a rake to it that makes it look rather Australian. Well made and priced right.
The overall construction of this hat is commendable. The weave is tight so no sun gets through, yet cool enough that you stay comfortable. It also comes with a 50 SPF rating. The brim is wider than most lifeguard hats I've seen and because of this, I've gotten some compliments about it's functionality. It's true to fit and very comfy to wear all day. I wish the brim was a tad thicker to prevent it from blowing up (or down) when the wind picks up. Then, I would have given this 5 stars. Bottom line, if you want shade, this is the hat to wear.

I use this hat every weekend to mow about an acre of grass just outside Nashville, TN. The Southern sun (what humidity? :) ) is brutal, but this hat not only protects my head and face but my neck and shoulders. It's light weight and fits very comfortably. A very small quible is the length of the strings; they come very long and initially got in my way but that was a quick fix.
This is an awesome shade hat for kayaking, I've worn it in some pretty stiff wind out on open lake water and the push button cinch kept this huge hat on my head...off water this definitely draws attention - a winner!
