There’s an old saying that goes: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.” For Kiwis, it should probably be the national motto. Our weather is notoriously unpredictable, capable of ruining holidays, washing out barbeques, and causing sunburn in the middle of winter, all without warning.

In the battle against the elements, few items of clothing are quite as useful as the right hat. They keep the rain off when it’s wet, and the sun off when it’s warm, and can be fashion statements in their own right. We’ve picked out a few essential pieces of headwear that you should consider stocking up on if you’re planning any events – especially outdoors!

Branded Bucket Hats

From days at the beach to playing cricket, the branded bucket hat is part of New Zealand life. Perfect for keeping the shade off on warm days, but offering plenty of protection when the weather turns nasty, it’s, like Daniel Vettori or Sir Richard Hadlee, a truly great all-rounder.

Custom Beanies

You might be surprised to learn about the rich history of the beanie, these humble hats date back thousands of years. But despite this, they look modern and stylish and are just as at home on the catwalk as they are in the great outdoors. The bulk custom beanie is the perfect choice for cooler months, offering plenty of warmth and insulation. They’re also, like our other hats, available in a range of styles and colours and can be customised with your branding and logo.

Promotional Peak Caps

Also known as baseball caps, peak caps are fantastic for the sunnier seasons as there large brim keeps your face in the shade. We offer peak caps in different styles and made from suede, denim and cotton, so you’ll easily find something that is perfect for your marketing needs.
