Any time you go out on the water, you need to dress appropriately. Pick clothing that is specifically made for on-the-water usage and that is designed with both your protection and your comfort in mind. This includes what you wear on your head. Water hats are essential and all-too-often overlooked pieces of gear. And fortunately, here at Lost Paddle Kayak Shop, we have many excellent hats to choose from.
Many kayakers and others who love the water choose to wear sun hats. These are hats that are designed not only to block the sun but that also offer protection against its rays. Too much sun exposure can lead to sunburns which are just plain uncomfortable. However, the right sun hat can keep sensitive heads from burning, protecting your skin and allowing you to stay out on the water for longer.
In addition to special kayak hats, some kayakers like to wear skull caps. These caps fit snugly and can keep warmth from escaping out through the head. Thus, they’re very popular among those kayaking in colder waters and for kayakers who like to get out of the kayak and swim for a while. You can even wear them underneath other types of headgear if you prefer.
Many hats for paddling come with specialty features, like the ability to float. This can really come in handy if your hat falls into the water. You’ll be able to locate it more easily instead of just losing it forever like you would with a regular hat.
We hope you’ll enjoy our selection of water hats and other great water clothing. However, if you have any questions along the way or need help choosing a hat or other gear, we’re here for you! Don’t hesitate to contact us.
