The KÜHL SUN BLADE built for sun, wind & water. Features innovative cooling technology that reduces skin temperature to keep you cool. The strategically placed 3D mesh keeps fabric off your skin and provides cooling ventilation, and the high wicking sweatband activates with moisture for additional cooling. UPF 50 provides sun protection
The style is great, turns out from a personal perspective a bit bulky for sailing. The back interacts with jackets and pushes the hat forward. In reality, wind can blow this off. All this said, it is difficult to buy a hat online, so just reporting our usage experience and the hat is beautiful.
I haven’t really used it yet, but bought it as a protector. I need some all over sun protection for my nose since I’ve had nasal cell cancer on my nose and ears. I’m a photographer and the draw string will allow me to remove the hat for photos and not lay it down, instead of turning a cap around backwards. I think turning caps around lowers IQ by at least 40 points, or at least it gives that appearance. I hate that look. They fit toward the larger size, but just right for me.
