43 Reviews
Add our stylish and comfortable UPF 50+ clothing for the ultimate in physical protection.
A comfortable, wide-brimmed UPF 50+ sun hat for head, face and neck protection.

Keep sun stroke at bay and protect your head from the sun
Stay cool and protect your head, face and neck so you can enjoy more time outside, more safely
Ideal for boating, long hikes, the garden, beach or poolside
Feel safe knowing you're protected by our UPF 50+ fabric technology


Can be worn in or around water - quick drying and moisture wicking
Keeps you cool in extreme heat thanks to a moisture-absorbing head band and carefully placed ventilation grommets
Lightweight and rollable so it's easy to carry around or pack in a bag - it just springs back into shape.
Pliable rim so you get the coverage you need
Elastic cord system to adjust fit - if in doubt, size up
Neck strap with lock system
Unlike some other UPF products, our fabrics aren't chemically impregnated so you can be sure the protection lasts over and over, without washing out
Our bespoke and high-tech fabrics have been carefully selected, woven and UPF tested in every colour and model, meeting strict EU standards, and hitting the highest possible UPF 50+ rating
Our hat meets strict European and Australian standards in terms of size, style,  brim dimensions, shape and fabric. A cap does not meet the standards because it fails to protect the neck and ears, for example.


100% SPF 50+ nylon

Hand wash only

Clothing only protects the areas it covers

Some of the reasons people love LifeJacket and keep buying this product.


Perfect head, neck and face protection in or out of the water. The neck strap and elastic cord will hold it in place so you don't need to worry about it blowing away either.


Applying creams, gels and lotions to the skin isn't for everyone. And it comes off eventually, sometimes when you least want it to. This UPF 50+ hat blocks damaging rays as long as you're wearing it for the ultimate in UV-blocking skin protection.


Our UPF 50+ fabrics are not chemically impregnated because this deteriorates over time through washing. We select very specific fibres and weaves that prevent, absorb and block 98% of the sun's rays from passing through the fabric so UV can't reach and damage your skin.

    Brilliant purchase that works

    I wore the hat all the time whilst in the sun and it provided shade for my face and I didn’t get sunburned. I also loaned it to my husband whilst he was fishing and he liked it so much I very nearly didn’t get it back! A fantastic purchase that works

    Great hat when not wearing a rucksack

    Really like the hat and it’s great at keeping the sun off for 90% of the time. However, to get the sun protection on you neck the rear brim is very large and I can’t wear the hat with my day sack when out walking.

    Absolutely Amazing. If your looking you need this!!!

    Amazing! So pleased with this hat. I have a big head and the large fits perfectly. Nice and flexible, but keeps its shape perfectly too! Love the colours. Comfortable and most importantly I feel really well covered and my baldy head well protected from the sun. Highly recommended 👍👍😁😁

Developed with industry experts, our products are used by everyday folk (like us), professional athletes, Olympians and our team of epic brand ambassadors. Make LifeJacket an everyday essential for your long-term skin health.


Our story began with personal setback. We were three healthy young men, who thought we were indestructible. But then, several of our friends – all healthy and in their thirties, like us – were hit by cancer. One of them was Jono, our co-founder.

This inspired us to set-up LifeJacket with the single vision of halting the increase in skin cancer - THE world’s most common cancer and, unlike other cancers, one that’s 90% preventable. In the UK, rates have doubled since the 90s and they’re forecast to double again over the next 20 years.

LifeJacket is a positive brand inspiring people who love to be outdoors to use our kit, protect their skin and keep doing what they love. We believe in everyday protection as the best means of achieving long-term skin health and well-being.

Developed and made in the UK with industry experts, our high performance skincare and UPF 50+ apparel is stress-tested by everyday folk (like us), professional athletes, Olympians, military personnel and our team of brand ambassadors.


Where do you ship to?

We currently only ship to the UK and Channel Islands

When will I get my order?

We try to get every order out the same day up until 4pm during the week. From then, please allow 2-3 business days for your order to arrive.

Who will be delivering my order and is there tracking?

We use a tracked Royal Mail service for nearly all of our deliveries. You will get an email from us when your order has been despatched which will include the tracking details.

What if I'm not in when my order is delivered?

The majority of our products fit through the average letter box. In the event your order doesn't, Royal Mail will leave a card letting you know they tried to deliver and what the next step is (either your order was left in a safe place or it has been returned to your local sorting office where it can either be collected, or a redelivery booked).

I haven't received my order yet, what should I do?

If 3 business days have passed since you placed your order and you still haven't received it, give us a shout and we will get it resolved.

How will my order be packed?

We will combine all items of your order to be packed as efficiently as possible. All the cardboard we use is FSC certified and all of our packaging is fully recyclable and/or compostable.

Is this clothing chemically treated to offer UPF protection?

Nope. All of our clothing offers the UPF50+ protection it does due to the natural properties of the fabrics we use. This means you can wear and wash it over and over again, safe in the knowledge it will continue to keep your skin protected and you comfortable.

Is this product cruelty free and vegan friendly?

Yes, it sure is.

How do your sizes compare to other brands?

We would say our sizing comes up true. Not tight/tapered and not oversized/baggy. If in any doubt check out the size guide towards the top of the page or give us a shout.

Can I return the product if I don't like it?

The last thing we want is for you to be unhappy with your order and any hard feelings. So providing it is returned to us in good/as new condition, we are happy to issue a full refund.

What is the LifeJacket mission?

Our mission is to halt the increase in skin cancer, which has doubled in the past 20 years and is forecast to double again over the next 20. We want everyone to be outside, doing what they love while makingg sure your skin's short and long term health is protected every single day.

Why is LifeJacket different?

We really are a mission-led brand trying to do something positive and challenging the conversation around good skin health.

No gimmicks, no misleading jargon or advertising, just honest and upfront facts based on science so you can protect your short, medium and long term skin health.

Oh, and some great products we are pretty proud of.

Who is LifeJacket for?

We're for anyone who wants to look after their skin and perhaps learn a little more about how to best achieve that. Whether you're a professional athlete, weekend warrior, dog walker, gardener or commuter, the science remains the same. Our products cater for every personal preference and environment, so it's just about finding what works for you.

Can I speak to someone?

We love nothing more than speaking to people and understanding the various preferences and motivations when it comes to skin health and UV protection. We also love to listen and learn, so if you had any questions, any feedback or any ideas, we would love to hear from you. Just give us a shout via social, our website or email and we'll take it from there.
