There’s nothing like spending time in the garden to get the stress rolling off your shoulders. The sound of the birds singing, the gentle breeze blowing, the sweet scent of flowers and the sight of fresh vegetables growing in your own garden is enough to melt your stress away.
If you’re spending several hours a day in your garden in summer however, one thing you must be careful about is exposure to the sun. Most people are careful enough to make sure they use a sunblock on their face – especially on the nose area, which tends to get sunburned more easily. But that may not be enough to protect you from the dangers of sun exposure.
For one thing, being out in the sun and sweating can quickly negate the protective effects of the sunblock you’ve got on. The only way to stay protected is to keep slathering on sunscreen regularly. Having to pause your gardening to do this every so often can be frustrating.
Secondly, just having the sun beat down on you relentlessly can tire you out quickly.
That’s where wearing a sun hat scores over sunscreen when you are gardening. Of course you’ll want to get a sun hat that’s wide-brimmed. Besides protecting your face from the sun, a wide-brimmed hat will also protect your scalp as well as the back of your neck.
Enter the Sloggers Women’s Wide Brim Braided Sun Hat with Wind Lanyard. This is one of the more popular summer hats I came across so I decided to take a closer look at it.
Here’s what I found.
Features of the Sloggers Women’s Wide Brim Braided Sun Hat with Wind Lanyard
Sloggers has put a lot of thought into styling this chic sun hat.
The brim of the hat is wide enough to shield your face and neck from the sun, while gardening. And the UPF rating of 50+ offers additional protection from the sun. You can garden free of the worry that the sun is damaging your skin.
The wide brim is neither too stiff nor too floppy so it looks chic while being useful at the same time. It won’t suddenly flop down, losing its shape and blocking your vision while you’re bending over your plant.
The material itself is lightweight and superior quality, so you get the protection you need without the added weight of heavy fabric.
The high-quality hat band provides superior fit and comfort, ensuring that the hat sits snugly on your head.
The hat is designed for medium to smaller head sizes. It measures 11 x 5 x 11 inches.
The Sloggers Women’s Wide Brim Braided Sun Hat is available in a few fantastic colors – Dark Brown, Grey Blue, Sage, Light Brown, and Dual Colored Coffee & Cream.
You can wear the hat all day while working in the garden if you like but it’s also pretty and stylish enough to be used as a fashion accessory if you want to do that.
