Alchemi Labs’ Sun Cap uses space technology to protect you from the sun and keep you cool, no matter how hot it gets.

Alchemi Labs’ Sun Cap Review:

Price and Where to Buy Alchemi Labs’ Sun Cap: The hat is available on Amazon and Alchemi’s website for $35.

How Alchemi Labs’ Sun Cap Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. This hat uses the same materials that the space industry uses to protect astronauts from solar rays in order to reflect away up to 80 percent of the sun’s heat. It blocks nearly 100 percent of UV rays, and has a moisture-wicking sweatband and ventilation to keep you even cooler.
  • Value: 8/10. The price tag is expensive for a hat, but the technology makes it worth it–you’ll agree if you’re wearing it on a hot day with no shade in sight.
  • Durability: 10/10. Although ultra-lightweight, the hat is also very durable.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. This hat will definitely keep you cooler than pretty much any other cap on the market–and the silver design is pretty stylish.

Final Verdict: Do you hike, run, or walk in the sun? Invest in Alchemi Lab’s Sun Cap and immediately feel the difference in how cool you are.
