What is UPF?

What Is UPF?

Whether you're out in the sun all day or only on occasion, protection from harmful UV rays is paramount. People are increasingly turning to ultraviolet protection factor clothing, as it helps prevent sunburns and the long-term effects of prolonged sun exposure, including sunspots, premature wrinkles and skin cancer.

In this guide, we'll discuss the definition of UPF and UPF clothing and examine how it compares to the better-known SPF standard. We'll also talk about the benefits of wearing one of the most popular UPF clothing items — hats.

Benefits of UPF

UPF is to clothing what sun protection factor is to sunscreen — it indicates the fraction of UV light that can penetrate a fabric. For instance, a 25 UPF rating means the fabric lets in 1/25, or 4%, of the UV radiation, and a garment with a UPF rating of 50 lets in 1/50, or 2%, of the UV radiation. 

The UPF clothing industry has seen remarkable growth in recent years, expanding from mainly practical items to a wider variety of attractive, everyday clothing styles. UPF clothing is now available in thousands of designs by dozens of companies, all of which use treated fabrics, tighter weaves or both to block UV rays more effectively. Some clothing manufacturers specialize in UPF apparel, including Coolibar, UV Skinz and Mott50. Other well-known brands, like Athleta and Uniqlo, also offer UPF items now. 

This surge in popularity is partly due to frustrations with sunscreen, which include its uncomfortable greasy feeling, the need to apply it frequently and the risk it may pose to aquatic life. Over recent decades, consumers have become more aware of the dangers of extended exposure to sunlight, which has also contributed to the growing popularity of SPF clothing. 


UPF protective clothing, like sunscreen, undergoes testing at independent laboratories, but UPF testing is currently not a requirement. Generally, companies that manufacture and sell UPF items in the United States follow complementary standards established by the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists and ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials. Clothing tags will often say the items have a UPF rating, but will not mention whether they have met those standards specifically.  

If the tag includes a Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation, that shows compliance, but not all companies apply for the distinction. 

Laboratories use AATCC and ASTM protocols to gauge the percentage of UV radiation that penetrates a specific fabric. Some UV rays pass through to the skin directly via micro-spaces located between fibers, and the fibers will absorb or deflect other rays. Moisture can also affect a garment's UPF rating, with a dry fabric usually providing more protection than the same piece when it's wet.  

Recommended Ratings

Garments with UPF ratings below 15 are not sun-protective. To get the voluntary Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation, the item must earn a 30 or higher rating from either the ASTM or AATCC. Any rating above 30 provides sufficient protection, though 50 is the best. While a UPF rating can technically be higher than 50, it won't offer significantly better protection, so garments with ratings above 50 will report it as "50+." 

UPF vs. SPF — What's the Difference?

UPF and SPF are both standards for measuring UV protection. Most everyone is familiar with SPF, which has measured sunscreen effectiveness for decades. In contrast, the UPF standard is relatively new and created specifically for rating UV protection offered by fabrics. Originally, sun-protective materials in the United States used SPF ratings, and the UPF standard didn't come into existence until later. Since applying for a UPF rating is not mandatory, many sun-protective clothing manufacturers continue to use the SPF standard.    

SPF Rating System 

Companies perform SPF testing on humans. SPF measures how long someone can stay under the sun before their skin starts to burn. For instance, if someone starts to get a sunburn after only 10 minutes, if they apply adequate sunscreen with an SPF 15 rating, the sunscreen should give them 150 minutes of sun protection. 

It's essential to note that, while sunblocks with the same SPF ratings will provide identical protection from UVB rays, no sunscreen protects you from all UVA rays. Even if a sunscreen claims to protect against UVA rays, the SPF standard currently doesn't measure protection from UVA rays. 

While researchers still believe UVB rays primarily cause sunlight-induced skin damage, particularly sunburn, many experts hypothesize UVA rays may be involved in other sun damage types, including wrinkles, aging and skin cancers. 

UPF Rating System 

Manufacturers of UPF fabrics don't test their effectiveness on human subjects. Instead, they usually use spectrophotometer tools. The UPF rating shows what percentage of UV radiation the clothing's fabric absorbs. 

For instance, a garment with a 50 UPF rating lets only 1/50th UV radiation from the sun go through it, meaning the garment will reduce your exposure to radiation by 98% in places the fabric protects. 

One advantage the UPF standard has over the SPF standard is that it measures protection against UVB and UVA rays.

Why Get a Hat With UPF Protection?

If you're only going to invest in one clothing item with UPF protection, a hat is perhaps the best choice. Benefits of UPF hats include the following.

  • You can still be stylish: If you're new to UPF, you may not realize UPF hats come in a wide variety of styles, meaning you won't have trouble finding a hat design that suits your tastes. 
  • It provides better protectionUPF hats aren't only an alternative to sunscreen on your face — they offer better protection than sunscreen, as they shield you from UVA and UVB rays. 
  • There is no need to reapplyPut on your UPF hat and you're good to go — no need to reapply every few hours. 
  • You won't have to apply sunscreen on your children: If you're the parent of young children, you know how much of a struggle it can be to put sunscreen on them. Having them wear UPF hats will protect their face, ears and neck from harmful sun rays. 
  • There are no annoyances: By using a UPF hat instead of sunscreen, you don't have to deal with all the irritations associated with sunscreen — your skin won't feel greasy, you'll never have to experience the sting of getting sunscreen in your eyes and you won't have to worry about your protection washing off when you go in the water.   
  • They're a great choice if you suffer from photosensitivity: Sun sensitivity can result from skin care products, medical conditions and some medications. If you struggle with this condition, consider getting a hat with UPF protection next time you go out in the sun.     
  • They're more environmentally friendly: As we mentioned earlier, some chemicals used in sunscreens threaten marine life. By choosing SPF hats for your sun protection, you're not only benefiting yourself — you're helping Mother Nature.

How Do I Measure my Hat Size?

How to Measure Your Head Size

Finding the perfect hat is about more than style and function. It's also about fit. When they fit right, hats can complement an outfit and enhance your face. When hats don't fit right, they may end up hidden in a box in the back of your closet. The most stylish hat in the world won't be much use if it's always sliding down over your eyes or tucked out of sight.

If you're eyeing the perfect headwear, it's important to figure out what size you need before you commit to the purchase. Even hats labeled as "one size fits most" aren't always for everyone. The first step to finding the right fit for you is to measure your head accurately and consult the sizing chart above.

You'll want to first grab a measuring tape or a 25-inch string and ruler. Once you've gathered your supplies, follow these three quick and easy steps: 

  1. Measure your head: Using your measuring tape or piece of string, evenly wrap it all the way around your head until it overlaps. Be sure to keep it about 1 inch above your ears for the most accurate measurement.
  2. Find your size: Once you've obtained your head circumference measurement, take your measuring tape or string and measure the length on your ruler. 
  3. Use the hat size chart: To find your hat size, take your ruler measurement and find the corresponding size on the chart. Usually, these charts will list the measurements in centimeters and inches. The average adult hat size is between 53 and 58 centimeters. 
  4. If your measurement falls between two different sizes, we recommend sizing up to the nearest 1/8-inch. You can then use the hat's sizing tape to size your hat down if necessary. 

It is important to keep in mind that even though there is an industry standard, each hat manufacturer is different. There can be variations and inconsistencies in sizing depending on what company created the hat. That's why it's important to measure your head and look at the hat's specific sizing chart to ensure you find the perfect fit. 

How to Measure Your Hat Size

To determine your correct size, you first need to understand that hats come in three general sizes:

  • The most commonly used sizing you will see here are SM, MD, LG, XL and occasionally 2 & 3X sizes.
  • The second most common sizing that we have on our site is that of half-sizes. Meaning there are usually only two sizes: SM/MD, and LG/XL. Occasionally there are 2X sizes as well.
  • The more traditional sizing is that of the exact size in inches and/or in centimeters. You will commonly see these sizes on more expensive hat

Measuring your head and using the hat sizing chart above will give you a general idea of what size hat you should wear. However, it is important to note that these size correspondents are not always exactly matching between brands and styles and every hat is a little bit different. We are always happy to measure the inside of a hat you see on our site to your head size to ensure a good fit before shipping your order.

At Hats Unlimited, we also have a comprehensive return policy. If you don't get the size quite right or don't like the fit, it's easy to return your hat for a refund or exchange. Our goal is to get you in the right hat for you.

Women's Sizing

When you're choosing a size, you'll also want to consider the differences between a men's hat and a woman's hat. Women's hats are most commonly designed with a one size fits most approach. In general, a women's hat can comfortably fit a woman with a head circumference between 21 1/2 inches and 22 1/4 inches. The variation in sizing is more commonly addressed by manufacturers today, who increasingly include an adjustable band or interior drawstring into their design.

However, there isn't an industry standard for one size fits most, which means that women's hat sizes can vary between manufacturers. What fits comfortably from one brand may be uncomfortable from another. The best way to avoid this problem is to measure your head's circumference and compare that with the measurements the manufacturer provides for each hat you're considering. 

Luckily, women can also choose any men's style, and often do, and look very fashionable with the right hat. Since men's hats come in specific sizes, women can measure their heads and use the sizing chart to find a more precise fit.

Men's Sizing 

Men's hats often come in very specific sizes. Men's hat sizes can be measured S-XL or with numerical values ranging between 6 and 8. Men's hats may also come in a one size fits most option, and the range of measurements this can accommodate is typically higher than women's sizing. 

Once you've measured your head, consult the manufacturer's sizing chart to determine what size you'll want to order. If you're considering a hat that claims to be one size fits most, compare the hat's measurements to your own. It's also a good idea to check to see if the hat comes with features that allow you to adjust the sizing, such as an adjustable band.

While it's difficult to get an exact measurement of every hat we have on Hats Unlimited because there are so many, we try to include measurements we've taken of our most popular hats on the product page.

Tips and Tricks for Measuring Your Hat Size 

Measuring for a new hat isn't complicated, but taking an accurate measurement can be crucial to the enjoyment of your new hat. To avoid buying a hat you won't be able to wear, follow these five tips for success. 

1. Measure Twice, Buy Once

The old carpenter's adage rings equally true for measuring hats. It can be risky to use the first measurement you take, especially if this is the first time you've measured your head. If you order a hat based on an incorrect measurement, you may be stuck with a hat that isn't comfortable. Avoid this problem by making a point to measure at least twice before you order.

After the first measurement, write down the circumference in both centimeters and inches. Then measure again. If you get the same measurement a second time, you're probably on track. If the numbers come out differently than the first time, measure a third time. The goal is to get the same numbers every time so you can be confident you're buying the right hat.

2. Size up, Not Down

If you measure your head and the measurement comes out in between numbers, it's a good idea to round up to the next 1/8 inch. It might not seem like a lot of variation, but every fraction of an inch can make a big difference when it comes to a comfortable hat. 

Sizing down may result in a hat that's too tight. We recommend sizing up because you can always size your hat back down using our Hat Sizing Tape, which you can find on our website. It's important for a hat to fit securely, but there's a difference between a secure fit and a fit that leaves you uncomfortable. 

3. Don't Pull the String Tight

If you're using a piece of string or a flexible measuring tape to measure, avoid pulling it too tight once it's wrapped around your head. You don't want it so loose that it's hanging down, but pulling it too tight can also alter your measurements and lead to incorrect sizing. 

A good rule of thumb is to pull the string as tight as you'd want the hat to feel resting around your head. Remember that some hats should fit more loosely than others, so factor that into how tight you pull the string, too.

4. Expect Differences Between Manufacturers

Each hat is as unique as the manufacturer that creates it. Unfortunately, while there is an industry standard for hat sizing, manufacturing inconsistencies and supplier variations occur. This is why it's always important to measure and consult the retailer's sizing chart before you purchase a hat. 

Relying on the sizing chart for the company that made the hat is the best way to ensure a good fit every time. If you fall in between sizes, or you aren't sure how to read the retailer's chart, contact them for help. Hats Unlimited will also gladly double-check the size of a particular style for you. For help, simply reach out to us through email at or by phone at 888-997-4287.

5. Sizing Depends on the Style You Choose

Certain styles of hats are meant to be worn differently. Some hats should fit snugly against your head, while others should be a bit loose. Consider the fit and feel of the hat when you're looking at what size to order. In some cases, this could mean going with a size that's a little bit different than the measurements you took. If you aren't sure, it's a good idea to consult the retailer for advice on sizing.

Common Questions About Hat Sizes

As you measure your head, it's normal to have questions. We've been in the hat business for a long time, so we're familiar with common questions people have when they're trying to size themselves for a hat. Consider some of the following:

1. What Does "One Size Fits Most" Mean?

Women's hats are often sized as a one size fits most hat. This means that there aren't individual sizes, such as S-XL or a numerical equivalent. Instead, these hats are designed to adapt to a range of head circumferences. Some designs may also come with features such as an adjustable band. 

To ensure a one size fits most hat will fit you, measure the circumference of your head, then compare it with the measurements of the hat you're considering. If the measurements aren't listed with the product information, you can ask us to measure the hat for you.

In some cases, men's hats may also be sized as a one size fits most. Similar to women's hats, this simply means the hat is designed to fit a range of head sizes and may come with features, such as an elasticized sweatband, to make it more flexible for a wider range of sizes.

2. What's the Average Hat Size for Men and Women?

The average head circumference for adults falls between 53 centimeters and 58 centimeters. On average, a man's hat size will be approximately 59 centimeters, while a woman's average hat size will be 57 centimeters. While it's helpful to know the average hat size, be wary of using this size to determine your own measurements.

average hat size for men and women

Remember that an average is a number that is derived from small, medium and large measurements. It does not reflect the size of the entire population, nor does it account for the variations in fit and feel among different hats. 

The only way to ensure an accurate fit when you purchase a hat is to measure your head's circumference and compare it to the available sizes.

3. Can I Guess My Size if I Don't Have a Measuring Tape Handy? 

If you've purchased a hat from the same company before, you might be able to take a guess or rely on past measurements to determine what size to buy. However, if you're buying a hat from a different retailer or a different type of hat than what you've purchased previously, beware of making a sizing guess.

Hats are like clothing in that every brand has a slight variation in sizing, and a small miscalculation can make the difference between a perfect fit and a poor one. Even if you don't have access to a measuring tape, most people can find some string and a ruler lying around the house. 

Gather these items and use them to take accurate measurements prior to making a purchase. Or, if you're debating a purchase in the store, ask a member of the sales staff for help in sizing. 

4. What if I Can't Find My Hat Size?

Most men and women fall somewhere on the hat sizing chart. If you're getting a number that seems off, first make sure your tape measure is correct and isn't twisted. Try measuring again.

If your head is indeed significantly larger or smaller, you may wish to find a hat in the closest size and with an adjustable band or drawstring so you can make the hat fit better. You may also try different manufacturers and styles of hats. Some may fit better, even if you're an atypical size. 

Find the Right Hat for Your Face Shape

It's important to find the right fit, but don't stop there. You can also find the right hat for your face shape. The perfect hat for you depends on whether you're rocking a round face, heart-shaped face or a long face. Have a diamond or square-shaped face? We've got hats for that too. 

In general, you will want to use these tips to get the right fit for your face shape:

  • If your face is long, look for wide brims and brims that cut across the forehead.
  • If your face is round, look for angled elements in your hats and hats that reveal more of your face.
  • If you have a square-shaped face, floppy hats and wide, straight brims can look very flattering.
  • If you have a heart-shaped face, look for hats that aren't too narrow at the crown.
  • If you have a diamond face, look for hats that can sit at the back of the head.

While these are good guidelines, don't get too caught up in rules. Ultimately, the key to finding and rocking the perfect hat is confidence. There's no greater feeling than wearing a beautiful hat that feels like it was made for you. That's exactly what you can achieve when you pick the right hat and fit.

What is a Dropship Item?

Many of our items on the website are "Dropship Items" and we understand this can be confusing to the customer. A Dropship item is something we do not keep a physical inventory of in any of our warehouses or stores; These items are handled, picked and shipped directly from the manufacturer. This does not allow us to process and ship the order based on our time standards and are, instead, up to the mercy of the Dropship company. With over 4,000 unique styles all of which feature different sizes and colors it would be close to impossible for Hats Unlimited to keep physical stock to allow for the most comprehensive catalog on the internet. 

Dropship items are annotated with a "DS" in the SKU of the item to indicate to both us and the customer that the item is handled by the manufacturer. The availability of the item also indicates the typical turn around time based off the manufacturer, most manufacturers ship the item the same day it is ordered, however there are some that can take up two weeks to get the item to the customer. Please keep this in mind when placing your order and selecting your shipping options. If you need a dropship item expedited, a call will need to be placed to our customer service line at 888-997-4287 and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
