UPF 50+ Wide Brim Sun Hat

WHAT IS IT?
A comfortable, wide-brimmed UPF 50+ sun hat for head, face and neck protection

WHY’S IT FOR YOU?
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.

OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF
Can be worn in or around water – quick drying and moisture wicking
Keeps you cool in extreme heat thanks to a sweat-proof 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
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, shape and fabric. A cap does not meet the standards because it fails to protect the neck and ears, for example

SIZING?
Comes in three headband circumference sizes: 56cm, 58cm, 60cm (S/M/L) and has an elastic cord system to adjust fit – if in doubt, size up. No chin strap – we suggest sizing up if in doubt

YOU ALSO GET…
7-day unlimited access to the mole-checking app, SkinVision, on every order. Use the app to map, monitor and get instant feedback without leaving the house. Skin checking is just as important as daily skin protection. Upgrade to a 12m license for just £25 (a 50% saving for our customers). All details on our website.

OUR STORY

We created LifeJacket after several close friends experienced cancer at a young age. Skin cancer is the world's most common cancer. It is forecast to double over the next 20 years. Our vision is to stop the increase by inspiring you to protect your skin every day.

A HAPPIER YOU

Taking better care isn’t just about preventing skin cancer though. Your skin is under attack every day - all year round - from harsh weather, central heating, pollution, smoke and stress to UV. We believe year-round protected skin is healthy skin and healthy skin is a happier you.

GOOD COMPANY

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.

AS SEEN IN

Recognised for our commitment to skin cancer prevention, our work with charity partner, Melanoma UK, and our educational campaign, more and more people are noticing what we’re up to. This is long-term project but it’s always good to know we’re making waves.

    Really great products from a uk based company with a worthwhile mission. Be good to see it extend in the future.

  15. Andy

    These products do the job they claim to do really well.

  16. simon

    The hat is a quality product that fits well and shades my head, face and neck extremely well.
    The company delivers what it has promised!

  17. Chris

    Really pleased with this hat and especially with the excellent customer service from Jono. You can tell that a lot of thought has gone into the design – it looks and feels great. I measure a tad under 60cm and went for the large, I don’t think I’ll need to tighten it as it fits snugly as it is (unless it’s blowing a real gale). Really looking forward to using this on the beach!

  18. Simon

    Love your ethos

  19. Steve

    Had a lump removed in late 2018 which the medical people said was linked to the sun.My daughter found you on the tinterwebnet thing: Impressed.

  20. Ann

    Gift for my husband who loves being outside but not that keen on putting stuff on. He wears it all the time so it must be good!

  21. Arthur

    Really quality and durable fabric and it actually breathes which is quite nice (and rare).

  22. Jon

    Was looking for a hat that offered full protection as many don’t. Stumbled across LifeJacket and their focus on men so gave it a go. Just what I was after, only feedback would be sizes are on the smaller side.

Skin science

A burning issue for men

Almost twice as many men die from skin cancer compared to women. Male skin cancer cases have exploded over the past 20 years and they’re forecast to double over the next 20 years.

It's chemistry

UVA rays penetrate your skin damaging the proteins that give your skin structure, causing ageing and wrinkling. UVB damages the outer skin causing sunburn. Together they're a cause of cancer.

Putting your jacket on

Real skincare should protect you from both harmful UVA and UVB rays. Rays touch your skin all year long, even in the winter. Apply skin protection all year round and stay healthy.

Inside LifeJacket products

Details and care:
Clothing only protects the areas it covers. Protection may reduce if stretched or wet.
Hand wash only. Leave out to dry.

Used and loved by

We make high performance products people enjoy using. So far, the feedback has been positive…

“Most importantly, the products are genuinely top drawer. The service and client interaction has been great. The founders' story and LJs website are brilliant. Makes me happy to support a good start up story and get an epic product in return. Bonus. Wish these guys all the best!”

Rich, Hamburg

“I just love the LifeJacket branding and mission. Men aren’t looked after enough or catered for and finally someone has stepped up. Throw in the effort they make to explain the facts and the science and the regular journals and podcasts and you have a brand I support.”

Tim, Newcastle
