Men's Ventilated Hats

No matter where your next adventure takes you, stay cool all day long with a men’s ventilated hat from Sunday Afternoons. Our collection of breathable hats for men are strategically designed with unique ventilation features, making them perfect for a warm day.

What is the best hat for ventilation?

All of our ventilated hats for men are designed with materials and features to keep your head cool. Here are a few of our best-sellers:

  • Sport Hat: Enjoy warm weather to the fullest with this lightweight hat, which features mesh ventilation on either side of the crown.
  • Eclipse Cap: Receive some much-needed air whenever you need it with the Eclipse Cap, which includes our Convertible Ventilation™ system.
  • Sun Tripper Cap: This cap is intelligently designed with two ventilation panels located on both sides of the crown that double as a sunglasses holder.

What does it mean if a hat is breathable?

If a hat is breathable, it means the materials used to create it will absorb and release heat and moisture instead of trapping it within the fabric. For example, our men’s trucker hats feature classic mesh ventilation and a wicking sweatband designed to evaporate sweat and keep you cool.

Are straw hats breathable?

Yes! Not only is a straw hat fashionable and a versatile, but it’s also great to wear as you work or play out in the sun. Our Sun Guardian Hat is made from 100% straw. This men’s casual hat is ideal for warm weather conditions, as it features a unique downsloping brim with a dark underside and an unlined crown, which promotes ventilation by allowing air to slip through the weave of the straw. Whether you’re lounging on the beach or downtown, a men’s breathable straw hat will keep you cool and comfortable.

What is the best hat to wear in hot weather?

During hot weather, it’s best to wear an outdoor hat for men that can protect your head, face, neck, and ears from UVA and UVB rays. Most Sunday Afternoons hats, including visor hats for men, have a UPF 50+ sun rating, which is the highest rating achievable. This means that 98%+ of the sun’s rays won’t be able to penetrate the hat’s fabric and reach your skin.
