sun protection


Sun Protection Australia's Adapt-a-Cap is the answer for those who want an all-in-one head protection solution. 

This new version of an old favourite has a drawstring and toggle so that the fabric can be drawn up over the nose for maximum protection. The fabric is silky smooth, loose for breathability and offers UPF50+ protection against UV rays. 

The visor is wide and is anti-glare on the underside. As well as pale, heat-reflective colours, the Adapt-a-cap is also available in hi-vis colours so you can be easily seen on the water.



The Buff is our most versatile piece of headwear. A Buff is a tube of seamless, stretchy fabric that fits around the head in a variety of ways. We like the High UV Buff - it provides 95% protection from UV rays. The fabric is called CoolMax Extreme - it wicks moisture away, so that the fabric stays warm in cool weather and doesn't get too hot in the summer.


We like the SunGuard style, pulled right up over the nose, or down as a Neck Gaitor. For those with longer fly-away hair the Foulard and the Hairband are useful. The Hood is a good one to use over a cap if your hair is slippery, as it stops the cap flying away! As a Neckerchief or Wristband it is out of the way if you are not in the sun.
