Adventure outdoors this summer means it is vital to wear the right clothes and especially the correct head gear.
The experts at Trekmates have launched a new range ready to catch the rays and designed to cover all tastes and needs.
The Borneo Hat (£30) is for the serious traveller or Scotland in the summer, as it comes with a built in midge head net and UV 50 plus protection. In sizes small to medium and large to extra-large, the stylish hat comes in brown, grey and green colours.
Fans of floppy style hats will love the Gobi model (£27), it’s a wide brimmed hat with a floatable foam filled edge and made from a Supplex nylon mosquito and midge repellent fabric which keeps the bugs away.
Bucket style hat enthusiasts can indulge in the Mojave hat (£27), again resistant to the nasty insects, but with a neat zip away legionnaires flap and offering UPF 40 plus protection. Same sizes and colours as the Borneo version, with the added bonus of a dark blue number.
The range is rounded off with the Flare cap (£22) which in addition to the great protection offered by the other hats, also has breathable mesh side panels, which gives it a very contemporary look and the Shine Cap (£20), available in light blue, beige and navy, which also has a rollable peak, as well as the other hat features.
Lightweight and with wicking brow bands, they are easy to pack away, with some having special attached bags.
All the products, which are machine washable, reflect the firm’s commitment to blend price with performance and providing a hat which fits your needs and doesn’t have any extra add-ons.
The firm has developed innovative new evolutions which help overcome the challenges often encountered outdoors and using expertise gained through walking, climbing and being outside to create the exceptionally functional accessories that are needed during adventure.
