Whether you're walking the rainy streets of Toronto or doing a bit of storm-watching on Vancouver island, there's one must-have accessory you can't leave behind: A good rain hat! Rain hats offer a stylish way to protect your dome, keeping you dry when navigating everything from drizzles to heavy rain. Some parts of Canada get over two meters of rainfall annually, so finding the right rain hat for travel and everyday wear is a must.
When people think about sun protection, sunscreen is usually the first thing to come to mind. It’s not the only option, though. It functions best in combination with other sun protection methods—like hats! Granville Island Hat Shop offers a wide selection of hats with UPF protection, including stylish options from safety-conscious brands like Tilley, Wallaroo, and Gottmann.
In the past, men’s hats were all the rage. If you used a time machine to visit the 1920s, it would be rare to see a man out and about without one. Though hat-wearing has declined among both women and men since then, the style is coming back. We’re pretty happy about that: Just placing a hat on your head is one of the easiest ways to polish up your look. Aside from aesthetics, hats for men are also practical. Check out these options to choose the perfect summer hat for you.
