Summer is coming and so are the sunniest, longest, and hottest days of the year. Now is the time when doctors start emphasizing the importance of sun protection and reducing your risk of skin cancer. Those of us spending a lot of time out on the water know how important it is to keep your scalp, face, eyes, and neck protected from UV rays. Did you know doctors have found that each inch of brim on a hat reduces your chance of skin cancer by nearly 10%? That being said, Gill Technical UV Sun Hat will offer you the most sun protection and reduce the chance of skin cancer substantially more than a baseball style cap. Each hat has their purpose and some protection is always better than none. Gill Race Cap, Pro Cap, and Technical UV Cap keep your scalp, nose, and forehead protected from UV rays while maintaining that sharp cap style. All of the hats above offer 50+ UV protection, are quick drying, and are equipped with a retainer to keep your hat safe from blowing away. Start the sunny days right by protecting yourself from UV rays!
