UV protection even when wet
The fabric of this OLAIAN UV-protection product blocks at least 98% of UVB rays and 95% of UVA rays. This guarantees effective protection from the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports.
This hat has two tightening systems:
- An adjustable neoprene chin strap for a secure hold in the waves, especially during duck dives or falls.
- An elastic tightening strap around the head to adjust the size of the hat and increase its hold in waves.
Designed for surfing and bodyboarding, also suitable for dinghy sailing, stand-up paddle, sea wading, windsurfing, kitesurfing, etc.
Behaviour when in the sun
Although this hat protects from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from water, sand ...), heat, time of day, etc. must be taken into account. Wearing this hat does not exempt the wearer from following the relevant advice: wear sunglasses, regularly apply an appropriate sun cream, wear an anti-UV top or shorty, drink regularly, etc.
Surfing sun protection
100% eco-designed Belharra component made of recycled polyester fibres.
