What criteria must a cap meet in order to qualify as UV-protective?
UV protection standards for hats are very specific The fabric must of course be anti-UV (UPF index greater than 50), but this is not enough to claim the finished product is anti-UV. The cap also needs to have a panel width that completely protects the face and neck.The Trek 900 cap meets these requirements so you can go hiking with complete peace of mind you are perfectly protected!,
Why is the inside of the visor darker?
When you walk in the sand, the sun's rays reflect off the inside of the visor and can dazzle you. To avoid this, we chose a darker colour that avoids this unpleasant reflection.,
Why hide your face in the desert?
Those who have already experienced one will confirm that sandstorms are frequent in the desert. So you need to cover your face if you do not want to be eating sand for the rest of your trek!Our cap has 2 press studs to hold the cap's cover in front of your face.This function also protects the face and neck from UV rays.,
Why protect your neck?
You may not know it, but sunstroke does not come just from exposing your head to UV. You can also get sunstroke if your neck is exposed. To prevent this, our Desert 500 cap has long panels that cover the back of the neck, down to the shoulders.,
