Need a hat for your child that has great coverage, great looks, a great fit AND great value for money? Then you’re in the right place! Our Heritage Explorer Classic Bucket hat is the ideal broadbrim style sun hat for kids from six months up to teens. Made from 100% organic linen, this kids bucket hat is fully reversible giving you two hats in one, is adjustable for the perfect fit that grows with the child, and comes in a huge range of modern patterns and muted colours.

With wider than recommended brims all the way around, the Classic Bucket Hat is protective in all the right areas, keeping heads, faces, chests and shoulders shaded. A chin tie keeps hats in place and an adjustable tie at the back allows the perfect fit. The perfect fit is the best way to ensure hats stay on heads – anything too big or too small becomes uncomfortable, meaning children are more inclined to pull them off! The Heritage Explorer Classic Bucket Hat features an earthy neutral colour on one side and a beautiful coordinating pattern on the other, giving you two hats for the price of one! With wide, anti-flop brims, these boys bucket hats are UPF50+ and are so light and comfy, they don’t even realise they’re wearing a hat.

Made from 100% linen, the Explorer Classic Bucket matches beautifully with other children and adult styles in the Heritage range, making it the perfect collection for those families who love to match!

A hat is an essential part of daily wear in Australia to protect children from the harsh sun. Starting them early is also a good step to ensuring your child is a happy hat wearer, as once they start daycare or school, they will need to be wearing hats every time they head outside. We encourage parents to start babies wearing hats from birth – our legionnaire and flap hats are ideal for new babies. Bedhead has a range of different hat collections for all occasions, all rated UPF50+ so your children can be protected anytime they’re in the sun. For swimming, we suggest our Swim Classic and Swim Ponytail Bucket hats along with rash vests and wet bags, and while the linen of our Heritage broadbrim range is quite a warm fabric in winter, we suggest our cosy fleecy legionnaire hats and fingerless mittens for kids on those blistering cold days.
