About Us

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 recently 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.

  • CapHat-West-Coast-opt

We are humbled to see the support that we’ve received so far; we recently 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.

We are also pleased to contribute 5% of Sales to Cystic Fibrosis Research.

Keep a look out for some new models, coming soon!

I’d love to see pictures or hear stories of where CapHat takes you, we’re on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter #caphat4hat

Have fun !!
