Finding a summer hat that simultaneously protects your face from the UV rays whilst looking good is like striking gold. Most high street options are flimsy and crumble against the elements. Of course, there is always those crisp white hats your grandparents wear, but sacrificing over £70 is a cost few can afford.
So when Tarp Hats got in contact with me about testing one of their namesakes, one quick look and read made me confident I had hit the jackpot (in vogue sun protection, anyway).
But first: what is a Tarp Hat I hear you ask?
A wardrobe staple of adventurers, the humble Buff has myriad uses. I put Buff's special UV insect shield range to the test, with multiple hikes in the UK and abroad.
As outdoor brands continue to compete against one another in producing boots with versatility at the forefront of design, this offering from the Italian brand Asolo is a definite contender on the market for hikers with narrow feet.
As one of the most popular lines from Scarpa’s lifestyle collection, the Mojito’s assortment of bright colours and suede fabric has caused a split between people who adore the look and soft feel of the boot and those who criticise the shoe’s lack of practicality. However the shoe’s comfortable fit and versatility make it one of my outdoor gear staples.
