Fishing Hats and Headwear
Screen your head from the heat of the sun, its glare, and insects that bite with fishing hats and headgear as you patiently wait for that bass to bite. Fishing clothing offers a protective layer for your body from the harsh environment, keeps you comfortable, and includes gloves, jackets, trousers, sunglasses and waders.Style
A baseball cap keeps the sun off your face with its front bill, but leaves the back of your neck unprotected, though you can fix this with a detachable rear shawl. It's also easy for the cap to get blown off your face in strong winds. The wide-brim bush and bucket hats offer adequate protection for both your face and neck as the brim goes all around, and you can add a detachable shawl as well. On the other hand, balaclava or facemask fishing hats and headwear and bandana fishing hats and headwear shield your face from moisture and wind, yet are breathable for ultimate comfort.Material
Fishing hats and headgear are made from one material or a mixture. These include soft breathable microfibre that is easy to wash; wrinkle-resistant polyester; durable nylon that does not shrink or lose its shape with repeated washing; as well as lightweight ventilated material, such as a mesh fabric, which wicks sweat and moisture away from your skin, keeping you cool. Some materials also include UPF to protect you from the sun's harmful rays and are waterproof.Fishing Conditions
Fishing conditions determine which type of hat or headwear is best for you. Bush hats are ideal for anglers because they are waterproof and the wide brim gives all-round sun protection, while bucket hats work best when you're trout fishing because the soft brim angles downward.Gender
Look separately for men's, women's, or boys' fishing hats as they are styled and angled toward each particular group. However, families with many fishermen can opt for unisex children or unisex adult hats and headgear that looks good on any head.
