Must-Have Hat for Gardeners
Protect your neck from the sun with this deep-brimmed hat
When the UV index soars, unprotected skin starts to burn in as little as 15 minutes. Sunscreen is fine as far as it goes, and you could always give up gardening in daylight, but better would be donning a deep-brimmed hat with generous neck protection, made from nylon with a UV protection factor above 50. The flap tucks up if you want to cool off; the crown has air vents and cinches for a comfortable fit; and the chin strap is useful when the wind picks up-—if not in the vegetable patch then maybe the next time you cross the desert.
