Bedhead Kids Bucket Swim Hat Boat
The Bedhead Kids Bucket Swim Hat Boat is a UPF50+ kids sun hat with our unique ‘anti-flop’ brim that won’t flop in front of children’s eyes (even when wet!)
Our swim hats are made of high quality chlorine resistant stretch nylon knit – perfect for the pool! 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.
It’s like a mini America’s Cup on your head! A colourfully patterned print for little sea-faring fans. Pair it with our Slate, Marine and Peach rash vests to complete the look! Boats is available in Legionnaire, Classic Bucket and Wet Bag.

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.
FOR EXAMPLE: The child measures 53cm, you will need the 54cm that will give you a lot of future wear. It’s important to get the hat closest to your head size, if it’s too big the hat will block the child’s vision, causing discomfort and a good chance of them pulling it off.
