As the temperatures rise, finding ways to stay cool becomes crucial. A good summer hat not only adds style to your outfit but also shields you from the sun’s harsh rays, keeps you comfortable and helps regulate your body temperature. 

Our summer styles are designed with these key things in mind, incorporating sun protection, breathability and moisture-wicking properties to ensure you stay comfortable and fashionable all season long. 

Breathability is a Must For Your Next Summer Hat

When choosing a summer hat, breathability is a key factor to consider. Breathable hats allow air to circulate, preventing heat buildup and promoting evaporation of sweat. This helps maintain a cooler head temperature, reducing discomfort and the risk of overheating. Not to mention, you don’t have to worry as much about killer hat hair.

Materials like lightweight cotton, mesh and technical fabrics are ideal for maximum ventilation, and Imperial hats are only made with the best. With superior breathability, these hats ensure you remain comfortable even during the hottest days – because nothing can keep you from that early morning tee time.

Ready to find the cap that’s right for you this summer? You’re in luck – here are some of our favorites.
