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 had a Skin Cancer removed from her nose in May 2013, so as a family we understand the importance of skin cancer prevention through protection. It was after this scare that we decided we should share our idea for sun protection.
In November 2014, we decided to have a go and launch CapHat.
We are humbled to see the support that we’ve received so far; in June 2016 we featured on Channel Ten’s Shark Tank (season 2, episode 6), we received a prestigious Bronze 2016 Edison Award at an awards ceremony (mid April) 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 support Cystic Fibrosis Research and have been involved with the Australian Melanoma Research Foundation (AMRF) for the past two years,
Have fun !!
