As the summer sun blazes down on me here in Texas, I realize very quickly how important a protective sun hat is in your skin care arsenal. This season, I've really taken to gardening, which means that I am outside in the sweltering sun quite often tending to or watering my plants.
While most of the time I do wear sunscreen, there are many times when I run outside for just a few minutes and need immediate sun protection. When the heat is at its worst, I often like wearing a quality sun hat in addition to the sunblock already on my face, for I want to make doubly sure that I am not causing further sun damage to my skin or accelerating the aging process. Thankfully, Sun Protection Zone has an array of high performance sun protection gear and allowed me to review their Women's Booney Hat. Keep reading to learn more!
The Women's Booney Hat from Sun Protection Zone comes in four versatile colors (Midnight Black, Oyster White, Paradise Pink and Sandy Tan) and is completely adjustable. This hat is constructed from extremely lightweight and breathable material which offers the maximum in UVA and UVB protection. It has a 4.5 inch brim all the way around, which actually seemed larger to me than it sounded. While wearing this hat, my face, neck and even part of my shoulders and chest were shaded due to the large brim.
This hat is extremely lightweight, weighing in at less than 2 ounces, and it even floats, should you happen to lose it in the water. I loved the adjustable chin strap which kept it securely fastened to my head in even the strongest of summer winds.
But in my opinion, the Women's Booney Hat is definitely more about function than style. I wouldn't hesitate to wear it out in public, but the large brim and pull string band around the crown of the hat definitely make it seem a tad old-fashioned. If you are looking for a high-quality, ultra-comfortable sun hat that will withstand the elements and keep your skin protected the entire time, than this is the hat for you!
