Best Sun Hat for Gardening and Yardwork

Rayward Apparel

Gardening and yardwork are extremely rewarding and healthy activities. To keep them that way, though, make sure you are sun safe and properly protected from UV radiation. To ensure safe gardening and skin protection in the yard, always wear a gardening sun hat with UPF protection. Keep reading to learn about our favorite gardening sun hat for UV protection in the yard: UPF bucket hats.

Bucket Gardening Sun Hats Don’t Sacrifice Function

Bucket-style UPF garden hats meet all the practical needs of working in the yard. The adjustable chin strap keeps your gardening hat in place, even when you’re bending over or working beneath low-hanging branches. Plus, they’re easily folded and packable for compact storage in a back pocket or gardening shed. Another reason our bucket gardening sun hats are the best is because they are machine-washable. This is especially important when they get sweaty or dirty. Or, do what we do and let them collect a little grime to show exactly how hard you’ve been working in the yard!

Bucket Sun Hats Are More Comfortable for Gardening

When you’re working hard out in the yard, whether it’s planting bulbs, watering the flowers, mowing the lawn or raking leaves, it’s important to be comfortable. You have enough to deal with fighting the bugs and weeds, and uncomfortable clothes would just add insult to injury. With that in mind, our gardening sun hats are designed to be lightweight, moisture-wicking and quick-drying. This means you’ll feel cooler, not hotter, when wearing our gardening bucket hats. Plus, an adjustable drawcord makes it possible to tighten the width for a snug fit around your head. 

Bucket UPF Gardening Hats Offer More UV Protection

If you’re looking specifically for a hat to wear in the yard, a gardening hat’s UV protection is possibly the most important factor. Fortunately, bucket gardening sun hats are the best for sun protection because of their shapeable 360-degree brim. This makes them far better-suited for yardwork than a baseball hat, which doesn’t protect your neck or ears. The full brim of our best gardening sun hat protects not only your scalp, but also your face, ears and neck. Even with a 360-degree sun brim, remember to pair your hat with broad spectrum sunscreen to shield against indirect UV rays reflecting off of surfaces such as cement, sand and water.

Additionally, Rayward Apparel’s bucket sun hats forgo visible air vents for a lightweight fabric that breathes on its own without the need for eyelets. This is also better than straw hats which often feature a woven pattern through which UV rays can penetrate. This means you don’t need to worry about UV rays damaging your scalp by pouring through unnecessary holes in your gardening hat!

Lastly, our Sun Ops bucket gardening hats are best for sun protection because they are rated UPF 50+. This rating is the highest possible rating for UV protective fabrics. This means that over 98% of UV rays never reach your head because they are blocked by our gardening hat.

Choose a gardening sun hat that protects as well as it performs, like Rayward Apparel’s UPF bucket hat.
