As other hats wither and droop in the elements, Kavu's Chillba Hat stands strong.
Kavu's Chillba Hat protects your head from rain, sun, and friendly splashes on your summer river trip. Secure the Chillba Hat in place using Kavu's drawcord chinstrap. Constructed out of durable nylon and closed cell foam, the Chillba won't sink even if it takes a swim through some rapids.
- Strap patterns vary and hat may come with a different pattern than pictured
THE ORIGIN OF THE CHILLBA
Barry Barr, KAVU Founder & President shares the origin of the Chillba. The Chillba stands out in the sunhat community giving you 1000% sun protection, not guaranteed. Test it yourself! This furiously functional KAVU sun hat has roamed the globe defending humans domes from UV rays since the mid 90's. Sit back, Chillba out and let Barry you tell you how the sun hat legend was born.
KAVU - FUN HAS NO SEASON
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Wore this hat the first day after getting it and man did I fall in love! Its adjustable and fit my head with room left (something that hardly ever happens) and kept the sun out of my face all day. Highly reccomend
Kavu Chillba Hat
I'm a huuuge fan of Big Trouble in Little China, and when I saw a hat similar to the thunder god's, I had to have it! The Chillba hat is very comfortable to wear. It does not collapse for packing, so you'll have to wear it when you travel on a plane. Make sure you're ready to throw down, because people will point and make fun of you, if you beat their ass while wearing this hat, you are a pimp. Good Luck!

Okay so I have had this hat for a few years and think it's great for a lazy day in the sun. It cinches down to hold steady in the wind and great protection for a beach day. It has also been handy as a rain hat solution. This hat provides great coverage and it's better then the same old same, old bucket hats. More for the extroverts as people will approach you to ask questions.
I got this hat b/c I have Lyme Disease from getting bitten by a deer tick in Charlottesville VA while Mtn Biking... I am on Doxycycline and it makes you "allergic" to the sun... then I moved to San Diego (land of tons of sun) and needed to be able to go out during the day. This hat works well and is a definite conversation piece. I almost wish it were a little larger than it actually is... pretty cool though.
forgot to mention, it is great for days at Festivals, tubing, rafting, and chilling at the beach...
I'm going to Costa Rica and need a hat that will protect from sun and rain. Will this do the trick? Oh, and, any chance you can send me a pic of you--or someone--in it? Really need to see what it might look like on before I commit... Thanks!
I wear it hiking and kayaking. Comfortable to the point I forget it's there. Obviously, not the proper hat to wear in high winds. Keeps the rain off.
I've even ran in it and it rides well.

Sits a little high, but a great sun hat. Didn't get too hot with strenuous activities.
