Paddling Hats & Head Gear (24 Products)

Kayak Paddling Hats


Keep your head protected while kayaking with one of our most popular kayaking hats! To keep the glare out of your face while paddling, make sure to have a kayak sun hat with a wide brim. Sun hats can provide UPF protection and usually feature side vents for additional air-flow. A kayak scull cap is best for wearing under other head wear to add additional warmth and insulation while paddling. Taped seams help keep water out and your head dry. For rain protection, try a storm hood or waterproof kayak hat with a sturdy, flexible bill. They provide shade and keep water from dripping into your eyes. For cold weather whitewater kayaking, try a full-cut style hood. This will include a long collar that extends down past the base of the neck to fit over the neck gasket on a kayaking dry top or dry suit. We have a wide variety of kayak hats to fit your needs! Check out our top brands like Kokatat, NRS, and Stohlquist.
