A Kool Breeze Solar Hat is like no other hat in the world. It is a tightly woven natural weave hat that keeps you cool when it's hot.. First, sunlight hits the cell mounted on the top of the hat. Electricity is produced by a protected motor mount on the hat crown along with a lightweight PVC air guided fan that begins to spin when the motor is energized by sunlight. The fan then fills the hat with cooling air, venting it both throughout the hat's weave and out the back through an exit port.
The Environmental Protection Agency, Surgeon General and The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends wearing a wide brimmed hat as part of an overall sun protection program to help protect against the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays.
Your head alone can perspire as much as all the rest of your body, as that is the first place your heart pumps the blood. In fact, your head is responsible for some 20% of the body's heat output, which is why covering your head in the winter works so well. In the hot months, the reverse is true. Natural perspiration produced by your scalp, with a little breeze of air, can be evaporated to produce cooling for your head and the rest of the body. When you wear a Kool Breeze Hat, your head's perspiration is continually evaporated and your head stays cool. The cooled blood flow then circulates down through the rest of your body producing marvelous comfort even in the hottest weather
