A packable straw hat adds a lot more than sun protection.
The right head wear adds style along with shade and even puts a little spring in your step.
Traveling to a sunny destination means you'll be paying a little more attention to your skin regime, especially if you're not used to a lot of solar rays.
Natural straw fibers make a lightweight sun shade that protects your face, head and shoulders from the harsh rays. The amount of SPF is determined by the tightness of the weave and the size of the brim.
From fedoras to floppys there's a hat that perfectly fits your needs and flatters your style.
