Akubra Hats and Sun Protection

Akubra Hats regularly independently tests its fur felt hats for Ultraviolet Protection. Samples are sent to the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA), a Federal Government Agency. Akubra then receives an Ultraviolet Protection Factor Report and an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating.

The UPF rating indicates how effective a fabric is at blocking out solar ultraviolet radiation. This testing is performed according to Australian/New Zealand standard AS/NZS 4399. UPF ratings range from 15 to 50 with higher ratings indicating more effective blocking and therefore better protection for the wearer of a garment made from the fabric. Fabrics that test higher than UPF 50 are rated as UPF 50+.
