During yesterday’s sunny golf round the temperatures reached 87 degrees. Knowing how sunny it was going to be I chose my hat scripting wisely, the Wallaroo Hat Company Shelton sun protection hat.  Great decision. I kept my head, face, neck protected and kept myself cool.  Let’s take a look at some of the Shelton’s details.

The Wallaroo Shelton is great for hiking….

Shelton Sun Protection Hat

The Shelton features an 8.5 inch flap on under the back half of the hat. See photo below. This flap protects the head and neck from the sun, as the 1005 cotton fabric in the hat provides 50+ UPF protection. 97.5% of ultraviolet rays are blocked.

The soft and flexible brim of the hat is 2.5 inches. The inside of the Shelton’s brim is a drawstring for the user to be able to adjust the fit of the hat.

The hat is packable, so it can conveniently be shoved into a pocket in the golf bag and conveniently ready for use when needed.

As mentioned, the drawstring helps the user adjust the size. The base sizes are M/L and L/XL.

On The Course

I’ve enjoyed the Shelton on the golf course. It helps keep me cool and free of frying my head and neck. I’ve also used the Shelton while hiking (first pic), working in the yard, and on family walks.  The hat is very comfortable.

The neck cover also helps prevent insect bites. In the spring and fall when we can have a lot of mosquitos here, the neck flap protects against bites.  I haven’t tried the Shelton in rain yet. I imagine it is great in light rain, but the cotton may soak up the water in heavier rain.

Final Thoughts

The $48 Shelton is a great investment in personal skin health, sun protection, and heat protection both on and off the golf course.

I’m stoked to let you know I’ll be reviewing TWO hats from Wallaroo Hat Company, the Shelton and the Jasper, both below.

These hats will be very heavily used by me this year as I know I’ve been letting my face and neck get pounded by the sun for years and I need better protection.

The Shelton has a neck flap which will come in handy not only golfing, but hiking, camping, fishing, and doing all sorts of other outdoor activities.

Winter is still in full force here, but the review stockpile keeps growing.  I’ll bust out my reviews as soon as time, and the weather allow.  Stay tuned.
