Travel With A Hat With No Worries

Over the years, I have acquired a little collection of sun hats. Not only do they protect us from the sun’s harmful rays when we are out and about, but they also add a little extra personality to our outfit. They also come in handy for bad hair days. Sometimes going to a different climate doesn’t agree with how you style your hair.

Hats aren’t just for your beach trip. Consider taking one along when you are going to higher altitudes as well. The sun can be just as harsh there too. Trust me, there are cute hats out there for all of your outdoor adventures.

3 Easy Tips For Your Next Trip

#1 Wear It

Wearing your hat is probably the easiest option. It depends on how long you will be traveling and if you want to have it on your head for your journey. Also, the size of the hat may dictate whether or not you want to wear it when traveling.

I don’t mind wearing a small hat like a baseball hat when traveling. Beyond that size, I go with option two or three.

#2 Clip It To Your Luggage

You can travel with a hat easily by clipping it to your suitcase. I don’t know who invented these little clips, but they sure do come in handy. You can use them to clip your hat to your rolling carry-on bag or your shoulder bag.

Would you prefer a tote bag with built-in hat storage? This tote is such a great bag for the hat lover. It will keep your hat secure and you will look chic going through the airport and walking through your vacation destination.

#3 Pack It

This is my preferred way to travel with a hat. There are so many packable hats in the marketplace to choose from these days. Not only are they fashionable, but these hats are also bendable and flexible. They are made of paper, polyester, cotton, or raffia. Many also offer UPF 50 protection as well. ‘

I am known to pack more than one hat for a trip. That is not a problem. When you start to pack find your largest hat and it will be on the bottom. Stack the other hats inside it.

Once you have your stack of hats, put them upside down in the middle of your suitcase. Put some small items inside them like bathing suits or bathing suit cover-ups. If your adventures don’t have you packing those, then put other small items inside the hats. Make sure you have other items packed up to the hats so that the brims stay flat. This is the easiest way to pack your hats without crushing them.

Once you get to your destination, you should be able to unpack and have a hat ready to go.
