•New Dr Shade Long Billed Sun Cap provides 30 UPF/SPF protection
•Unique fold-up feature enables practicality as well as protection
Glacier Glove, the leading manufacturer of outdoor sports hats, caps and gloves, has launched a new Sun Cap designed especially for the fishing market. The new Long Billed Cap provides vital sun protection for anglers in line with recommendations from the American Cancer Association. The cap is the first of its kind to offer a robust drop down shade which covers the fishermen's ears and neck, and then tucks into the crown when it is not needed.
The unique garment is made from comfortable, lightweight microfiber and has an innovative quick-dry function. The newly designed cap comes in a khaki colour and offers a dark underside brim to help eliminate glare from the sun, improving anglers' vision on sunny days. Adjustable straps mean that one size fits most adults.
Glacier Glove's Dr Shade range features over 20 products all made from fabrics which have been tested in independent laboratories to verify they provide sun protection from UPF/SPF 15 to UPF/SPF 50 - the range of protection recommended by the American Cancer Association.
The new Cap is now available at fishing tackle shops and outdoor sports stores globally and throughout the US including Bass Pro Shops, Cabela's, The Sports Authority, Sportsman's Warehouse and Magellan's travel store, or online from www.glacierglove.com
"Our Dr Shade Long Billed Cap has been designed specifically with the fishing market in mind," commented Dick Swan, Glacier Glove President and CEO.
"Fishermen spend a large amount of time outdoors and it is imperative that they protect themselves from the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays.
"Fishing as both a profession and a leisure activity is becoming more and more popular and this newly designed cap highlights this. Our cap is one of a kind and we are confident that it has the ability to take sun hats to the next level," he concluded.
