Packable hats have the edge over sun hats that are not packable - particularly for those who travel a lot.
If hats aren't able to be crushed down, they take up a lot of space in suitcases or carry-on bags, leaving little room for all of your other necessities.
However, there are now plenty of packable hats to choose from that you can crush down into your bag or suitcase. This will help you conserve space and then you can easily unpack it later and it's ready to wear again.

Sunday Afternoons is a quality manufacturer of packable-hats and they provide a number of hats to choose from for women.
The Traveler Hat features Certified Sun Fabric that blocks 98% of UV rays and also has a UPF rating of 50+ on its breathable nylon fabric.
There is a hidden pocket that can be used to store a credit card, key or lip balm too. The brim of this hat folds down easily and can be tucked inside its own ‘travel tote' which you can store in the glove compartment of your vehicle, your handbag or wherever you choose.
Once you unfold the hat, it will be ready to wear without creases, folds or damage.

Tilley Packable Hats for Men and Women
Tilley is one of the top manufacturers of sun protection hats and they also make packable-hats for both men and women.
Some of their hats include the Tilley TH9 Hemp Hat, the T5MO Organic Cotton Airflo Hat and the T4 Insect Shield Hat. While some individual features may vary, they all provide a UPF rating of 50+ and will keep your skin protect from the sun.
They're available in many different colors and styles so choosing something that fits your taste and personality should be pretty easy.
Packable hats are convenient for travelers because they can be folded up and packed away unlike traditional hats.
This makes it easy to store them in smaller spaces like glove compartments and handbags or at least make it so they don't take up as much room in larger places like suitcases and garment bags. These hats will provide the UV protection you need to prevent skin damage.
