Special Features to look for in a brimmed chemo hat
When choosing a brimmed hat, most people focus too much on style. In fact, other factors are more important. Look for the following essential features when you choose your sun hat or a brimmed hat for outdoors.
Comfort: Please select a sun hat with breathable material, and it is soft to your scalp. If it is a sun hat with a hard structure (pre-formed), such as a straw or paper yarn hat, make sure that the hat is big enough for you to wear a hat liner under it. Make sure your hat is about 1cm bigger than your actual head size.
Functionality: The brim size of a hat is a crucial factor in terms of UV protection. There are two types of brimmed hats. One is baseball cap styled hat with a visor at the front of the hat. Another style is a hat with an encircled brim which gives you shade from all sides. If you are going to stay outdoors for a long period of time, a hat with an encircled broad brim is the best choice. Make sure the hat brim is wide enough, and the crown is deep enough to cover as much of your face, ears and back of the neck. While making sure the hat is breathable, ensure the fabric is layered up or thick enough to block enough UV rays.
Sizing: A most commonly made mistake is that most people will guess their head sizes and assume any hat will fit. This might be the case with a turban or a beanie or a knitted hat which are usually stretchable. Sun hats are usually layered with a thick sweatband and paddings. This will affect the stretchiness of a hat. Most of the size of a sun hat could be adjustable by a built-in drawstring or elasticated sweatband, but the adjusting range can be very limited. So size matters! Please measure your head size! Please go to our Head and Hat Size Guide page for more info.
Other factors to consider when choosing a chemo outdoor hat
Portability and Practicality : Are you going to use the hat when you travel? If so, choose a hat you can fold up and put into your bag or suitcase easily. A portable hat is good for storage.
Style/shape: Most hats will look great on oval-shaped faces. If you have a square or round face, choose a hat with a deep or high crown. A hat with a deep or high crown won't look flattering if your face shape is longer than average face shapes.
