Designed for Protection
MackaHat headwear was originally designed with sun protection in mind.
All of our hats are made with a crown depth of 9cm, which brings them down nice and low on the forehead. Our bucket hats have a brim width of at least 8cm and our Broad-Brim hats 9cm providing ideal coverage for the face, ears and neck. Of course, schools are welcome to specify their own measurements. Our polyester sports bucket hats have elastic around the inside of the crown so that they can be worn with confidence while playing sport.
Knowing that most school children are far more enthusiastic about their various sports house colours than they are about the school uniform, we thought that a reversible bucket hat or broad-brim hat with the main school colour on the outside, and the various house colours on the inside, could be an attractive option. Little did we realize just how popular this style would be. Giving schools the option of having their school logo on the outside and house name or logo on the inside has proven incredibly popular. And sports’ teachers love being able to divide their class into teams according to their hat colour.
