Arctic Hat

892 Votes

Rate this product

Arctic Hat claims to keep you cool in the summer by both shielding you from the sun's heat and by pulling excess heat away from your body. It sounds too good to be true, but it uses a proven technology! Each one is fully adjustable, so it'll likely fit the vast majority of people, and when you obtain one, you'll have a choice between a wide-brimmed style (with a strap) and a baseball cap style. Regardless of the style you choose, this hat comes in a light beige shade.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Arctic Hat is $19.99 plus $4.95 shipping. The cheapest place we could find to buy it was from the site below for a total price of $24.94.

Arctic Hat Video Review

How It Works

When worn as is, this hat contains a protective barrier that'll block 99 percent of the sun's UV rays, along with up to 80 percent of its heat, stopping these things from reaching your head. The UV rays and the heat will literally bounce off the hat and away from you so that you don't become overheated or quickly develop a sunburn. However, you can protect yourself from overheating even more by adding some cool water to your hat's inner layer before putting it on. The water within this layer will gradually evaporate over a few hours' time (without dripping!), keeping you up to 20 degrees cooler than you otherwise would be during that time period. As a result, you may be able to spend more time out in the summer sun without becoming uncomfortable.

Features

  • For Men and Women

    The Arctic Hat has been designed to fit all adult men and women. If you find that yours is too big or too small, you'll be able to adjust it by using a strap on the back. This type of hat may also fit some children, although that'll depend on how large each child's head has grown. Adjusting the hat will be a quick process, so you'll be able to share your hat with a friend or family member of a different head size if you'd like.

  • Beige

    All of these hats come in a light beige shade that appears to be gender and age-neutral. Each one is also emblazoned with the words "Arctic" on the front, which will assist you in picking out your cooling hat from any pile of random hats that you might have.

  • Lightweight, Breathable Fabric

    The fabric used to construct each Arctic Hat is lightweight and breathable. In fact, it's the same type of performance fabric that's commonly used to construct garments for professional athletes, first responders, and military members. Plus, every one of these hats contains ventilated panels that enable air to flow freely through the hat and around your head.

  • Two Styles

    If you choose to obtain one of these hats, you'll be able to choose between a camp-style hat with a brim and a strap, or a baseball cap. The camp-style hat with its round brim may offer you more protection than the baseball cap, but some users may prefer the look of the baseball cap. If you like both options, you could get one of each and wear them on different days, depending on the activities you'll be doing.

Positive Points

  • Promotes Good Health

    The Arctic Hat promotes good health by helping prevent people from developing heat-related physical difficulties such as sunstroke and severe sunburns. If you're not suffering due to the weather, you'll be able to continue to be productive all summer long, and you'll also have a lower risk of developing permanent sun-related conditions like skin cancer.

  • Helps Protect Eyes

    This hat has mainly been designed to protect your head, but it'll also indirectly protect your eyes while you're outdoors in the summer. UV rays can harm the eyes and lead to the worsening of vision over time, but this hat will be able to deflect the majority of UV rays before they can reach your eyes. This will, in turn, reduce the need for sunglasses, if you find them to be a nuisance.

  • Can Wear Almost Anywhere

    For your own protection, you'll be able to wear this hat anywhere that hats are typically allowed without looking out of place. Aside from wearing yours while you work outdoors on your own property, you'll also be able to wear it to public places of leisure, such as outdoor pools, parks, and beaches.

  • Works Wet Or Dry

    To gain access to the evaporative cooling technology that will keep your head up to 20 degrees cooler in the heat, you'll need to wet your hat by filling its inner liner with water. If you'd prefer not to wear a wet hat on your head, though, this hat will still benefit you by blocking UV rays and heat while you wear it completely dry. To save yourself time and water, you may want to wear your hat dry on mildly hot days and just wet it on the hottest, most humid days that you have to deal with.

Arctic Hat News Report

Negative Points

  • No Children's Sizes

    Although some children with larger heads may be able to wear one of these hats, the Arctic Hat will simply be too big for children with smaller heads. If a child with a smaller head were to try and wear one, it might just fall off while they're walking or running around. For that reason, it would be nice if at least one style of this hat could be made available in sizes created exclusively for small children.

  • No Alternative Shades

    It's good that the beige shade this hat comes in will appeal to people of various ages and genders, but some people may desire a hat in a bolder color or pattern. Some people may also be opposed to the fact that there's an "Arctic" logo on the front of each, especially people who prefer wearing hats that display the logos of their favorite sports teams. Instead of automatically adding a logo to each of these hats, it might be better if the manufacturing company could keep them logo-free.

  • May Not Be Machine Washable

    It's not specified that this type of hat is machine washable. That means you'll probably have to wash yours by hand with soap and water if it ever picks up stains due to dirt or other common outdoor substances.

Critical Advice

If you decide to fill your Arctic Hat's inner liner with water, be sure that you don't overfill it. Once you've added enough water to coat the entire liner, that's enough, and adding any more might make the hat feel soggy and uncomfortable (besides being a waste of water). Always fill your hat with water from the inside, not the outside, and never fill it with any other liquid besides pure water. If you were to fill it with another liquid with different properties, including flavored water, the hat's evaporative cooling process may not work as effectively.

Wise Advice

Do not buy Arctic Hat online before searching Amazon.
- Alternatives or the same items are always available and sometimes at lower prices.

WEB OFF

They advertise two hats for an additional fee but don't tell you it's only if you get two of the same hat. If you want one of each style you will pay $19.99 plus a $1.00 web fee.

Rip Off

I haven't even gotten the hat but was just charged and extra $10 for nothing I approved. Not shipping, not 'deluxe' hat. Just charged my card without showing me until it was processed. Way to rip people off, jerks!

2 for 2

I ordered (1) hat and when I placed the order they charged me for two. Once you enter your payment information there is no "final" check of the order before it is placed. BEWARE.

The Deluxe version has an added aluminum-like reflective fabric sewn into the entire top part of the brim. It is claimed To have better heat reflective properties compared to the regular version. I bought the Deluxe wide brim hat, don't know What the Deluxe baseball cap type version would look like. It feels nice and comfortable on my head every time I wear it. I do have to wash them by hand every few weeks or so. I don't think it is a good idea to throw the Deluxe hats Into the washing machine because of the heat reflective material integrated onto the entire top part of the brim. The regular Version hats should be okay to machine wash and dry.
