Best Hat for Travel: Sun Tripper
Need a packable all purpose hat for travel? Check out this Sun Tripper hat from SunDay Afternoons available for men and women. Besides being a must have for adventure travel, because of the design, it works for urban travel too. The bill is not too long like some hats with this style, so beyond being super functional, it’s actually kind of cute–I’m not a huge fan of this look, but this hat pulls it off pretty well. Even with the air vents. And you will love those air vents on a hot day.
It’s such a relief to be able to block out the sun on a hike, and especially on water. If you’re river rafting or paddling for instance, you have to have this. All color options are dark under the bill to absorb glare. The bill is foldable, so you can put it in your pocket, and it can get very small in your bag. I’d add this to my 10 Essentials for hiking, there’s no reason not to take it. Because the black is so unassuming and versatile–I’ve worn it in an urban setting too. Black is the one I take, but the lighter colors will be cooler and more practical for when you’re in the sun.
You know what else this hat is awesome for? The plane. It can get pretty bright up there with open windows and sometimes you just want to shut out the light and watch a movie on your iPad or read a book. This does the trick. The Sun Tripper is a Must Have for travel. Find it HERE.
