Which standard must a cap meet in order to qualify as "UV-protective"?
UV protection standards for hats are very specific: The fabric must of course be anti-UV (UPF index greater than 50), but this is not enough to claim the finished product is anti-UV. The hat must also have a wide brim and flap which fully protects the face and the back of the neck. The Trek 500 hat meets these requirements so you can go hiking with complete peace of mind: you are perfectly protected!
How is polyamide is more resistant?
Polyamide offers excellent abrasion and tear resistance. Furthermore, this synthetic fibre is not susceptible to micro-organisms or mould!
How do you measure a fabric's quick dry capacity?
The product is machine washed 3 times then line dried, then we immerse it in water and measure how long it takes to get back to its pre-wash weight. This hat scored an impressive 5 out of 5 stars, returning to its pre-washed weight under 80 minutes after immersion!
The entire design team was able to test this hat during frequent excursions in the Mont Blanc mountain range, where Forclaz – Decathlon's trekking brand – has its offices.
