Although the fabric has a UPF rating >50 (so only allowing 1/50th of the sun's rays to pass through), under current regulations this cap does not qualify as UV protective as it does not cover the back of the neck which is a requirement for UV protective certification. However, your head will remain well protected.
The product is machine-washed 3 times and line-dried; it is then immersed in water in order to measure the time taken for the product to return to its original pre-washed weight. This cap scored an impressive 4 out of 5 stars, returning its pre-washed weight some 80 to 120 minutes after immersion
The entire design team was able to test this cap during frequent excursions in the Mont Blanc mountain range, where Forclaz -- Decathlon's trekking brand - has its offices.
