Womens Golf Hats
The sun is a welcome sight for most people most of the time. But it is tough on skin. That is why women’s golf hats are so important - to keep as much of those harmful rays off the face as possible. But women now have a choice in designs, styles and colors for a number of different looks. When is it a good time to wear a hat? Anytime you are on the golf course. Of course!
Hats and Visors
There are advantages and disadvantages for both visors and hats. The big advantage for hats is the greater coverage of the head. But the big disadvantage is they can be a bit warmer to wear. Visors are the exact opposite. Because women may have more hair than men, the decision of hat or visor may also be influenced by how hair impacts visibility when addressing the golf ball. When in doubt, buy both and see what works best when on the course.
4 Benefits of Wearing a Hat or Visor
The drying rays of the sun also contain UV spectrum rays that have unwelcome effects on the skin. Hats will help keep these rays from the head and face.
Wicking moisture away is a particularly important effect on the hottest, most humid days. If perspiration is running down into the eyes it will definitely affect shots and even those tricky putts on the green.
Keeping cool can be a challenge. Hats and visors provide built in shade. Many hats have ventilated fabric to enhance cooling.
A hat or visor can add to the sense of style one may be trying to carry onto the course. Those who are loyal to a particular brand may want to show off that loyalty.
How Do Hats Fit?
This is an important consideration. Hats that are too tight are uncomfortable to wear. The ones that are too big will blow off either from breezes or riding in a cart.
Look for adjustable hats. With a band in the back, they will often either snap into different sizes or slide through a buckle for infinite choice.
Some fabrics are super stretchy. These are often “one size fits most” which will fit most people. These are great for sweat absorption too.
Some manufacturers make different sizes.
Visors are usually adjustable like hats. Some visors are open in the back making it easy to put them on or take them off. However, this design is prone to coming off and may be constructed to be tight making them uncomfortable to wear.
Other Features for Hats and Visors
Some hats are made with waterproof or at least water resistant fabrics. You never know when the late afternoon will produce that unexpected shower.
The use of antimicrobial fabrics is an emerging trend. This is especially useful in humid climates.
Colors. Colors. Colors. The choices are many.
