Kids Legionnaire Swim Hat Stripe UPF50+:
This Kids Bedhead Swim Legionnaire Stripe print hat is so soft and comfortable over the ears and back of the neck making it a perfect baby swim hat.
Our swim hats are made of high quality chlorine resistant stretch nylon knit with quick drying ability. Swim hats are best for use in a wet environment – at the beach, lake, swimming pool or splashing about under the hose! If you are looking for a hat for everyday use – we always encourage using our Cotton hats instead (all our hats excluding our range of Swim Hats). A cotton rich hat will be much cooler for everyday use.
Nothing says “seaside” quite like navy and white. Add in a stripe and you are there in that French Riverina with beach huts and striped umbrellas. We love this hand-drawn stripe for its imperfections and uniqueness – just like all of us! Pair it with our Marine Rash Vest for extra nautical flavour. Available in Legionnaire, Classic Bucket and Wet Bag.
BEST SUITED TO: Babies/toddlers using prams, strollers, car seats, carriers & slings.

Size & Brim Depth Advice
Please be sure to take measurements of your child’s head before purchase so that you have an idea of what size will be most appropriate.
Step 1: Distract the child with a toy or food (so they don’t try and help you!).
Step 2: Use a measuring tape to take measurement. Otherwise use a ribbon to take the size then use a ruler to find the measurement.
Step 3: Purchase the size closest to your childs measurement. The hats are quite stretchy and will grow up to 4cm.
EXAMPLE: The child measures 41cms, you will need the 42cm size that will stretch another 4cms up to 46cms – giving plenty of future wear. Purchasing the next size up would be too large and block the childs vision.
