The great outdoors is even greater when you stay fresh, comfortable and energized. When the sun is shining, its important to wear a hat.... but baseball caps and wide brimmed hats make you hot & sweaty because heat gets trapped inside.
For anyone who loves being outdoors, we believe the Urban Canairie is the perfect hat. It is strong, lightweight and protects you from the sun without making you hot, so you can enjoy being outdoors longer.
Urban Canairie’s patented design, was developed to keep your head cool and face and eyes shaded. Featuring a flat top and a mesh venting system, the Urban Canairie releases heat and lets air flow through - Even better, it doesn’t give you “hat head”.
If that wasn’t enough, the Urban Canairie sun hat is environmentally-friendly. Its made from 65% recycled water/soda 'P.E.T.' bottles and 35% 'G.O.T.S certified' organic cotton. This reduces landfill waste through recycling, and minimizes pollution via an ecologically friendly and sustainable process for dyeing and finishing fabric.
For those long days under the relentless sun, Urban Canairie sun hats are also available with a removable ear / neck shade. We offer both vented (mesh) and solid neck shades that simply 'snap' on and off your hat as required.
The Urban Canairie is made in Canada. While others mass produce overseas, our hats are made by skilled crafts men / women, working with their hands and sewing with fabrics & materials supplied by an American company.

Obviously, mesh material does not block 100% of the sun's ultraviolet rays, however we believe that the Urban Canairie hat provides the right balance of sun protection and hat breathability. For extended durations with full sun exposure, we recommend using a high SPF suntan lotion on your ears and neck.
The hat may be a little "different" looking, however we now live in a world where uniqueness is accepted. As John Maynard Keynes once said - 'The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas, as in escaping from old ones'.
