Baby and children’s swimwear brand Splash About has launched a cute but practical range of Legionnaire’s hats for Summer 2021.

Lightweight and quick drying Splash About’s sunhats are designed to be worn in or out of the water and because they are elasticated inside, they fit comfortably and well without slipping off. With a retail price of £7.99 and available in two sizes; 1-3 years and 3-6 years in a wide range of Splash About’s best-selling designs.

The fabric of the Legionnaire’s Hat provides UPF50+ sun protection and due to its inherent design, the longer fabric at the back covers the vulnerable neck area, while the peak at the front protects baby’s eyes from the sun’s glare.

“Our new collection of Legionnaire’s hats ensures baby’s head stays cool and protected in the sun – whether they are playing in the garden, on the beach or in the water,” commented Splash About Managing Director Bernadette Spofforth.

Bernadette continued, “We designed these hats so that they are light, comfortable and won’t slip off easily – your baby won’t even realise they’re wearing one!”

The Legionnaire’s hat is available in eight of Splash About’s best-selling designs so they can be matched with the current collection of swimwear, swim nappies, wet suits and learn-to-swim floatsuits and jackets.
