Kayak sun hats reviewsKayak Fishing sun hats productsKayak hatsThe best Kayak sun hatsKayak Fishing HatsKayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. Kayaking is differentiated from canoeing by the fact kayaker's  use a double bladed paddle and sit in a seat with their legs extended out in front of them. Canoeists will either sit on  an elevated bench seat or kneel directly on the bottom of the boat with two knees or one knee in the "high kneel"  posture.The kayak may be either "sit-in" (have a closed cockpit) or "sit-on-top" (sitting on top of the boat deck).  Sit-in kayaks provide more protection from water and the elements, and are popular for day trips and touring.  Sit-on-top kayaks are growing in popularity for fishing and surfing. Shelta has its roots in paddle sports! Our founder, an avid paddler needed a sun hat for UV protection.   After not finding one that worked to his satisfaction he invented one.  Shelta was born from necessity.  Being exposed to harmful UV rays while participating in outdoor sports can increase the odds of getting skin cancer  and should to be addressed by wearing UV protective clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses and a sun hat. A Shelta is a  different kind of sun hat. The brim doesn't flop in your face, the fabric is UPF 50+ rated and DWR coated, it floats,  and each style has unique and innovative features.  We wanted sun hats could be worn in all weather conditions  and when participating in active sports or activities. Performance driven UV protection!  Different brim widths and  crown styles were designed with different outdoor sports and adventures in mind.  The brim doesn’t flop in your face  when it gets wet or windy and the cord system gives you options besides just tightening it around your chin. Shelta  has multiple styles designed to be the best sun hat for your kayak, and kayak fishing needs.  If you want even more  sun protection, use the Shelta neck shield, face gaiter and Sun glove.  Sun protection that won’t wear off!  Shelta  has become the best sun hat ever made for outdoor athletes and adventurers. Athlete tested. Adventure approved.  Get Shelta.
