We are a passionate Australian family who love spending time outdoors but don’t like getting sun burnt.
CapHat® was born on the Far West Coast of South Australia on a stinking hot Summer’s Day in 2004. I had a hat, but I was still getting sun burnt, so I made the first model from duct tape and paper towel.
My wife has had a skin cancer removed from her nose, so as a family we understand the importance of skin cancer prevention through protection.
In November 2014, we decided to have a go and launch CapHat® to share our sun protection idea with others.
We are humbled to see the support that we’ve received so far; we received a prestigious Bronze 2016 Edison Award at an awards ceremony in New York, have received a “Seal of Approval” from the Melanoma International Foundation, and were voted “Best Clothing Accessory 2015” at the Australian Fishing Trade Association Awards.
Have fun !!
