These hats have protected the heads and faces of people all over the world for decades. We have all seen these before but the question remains, what is a visor? The visor by definition is a crown less hat consisting of a visor or a brim that has a strap long the back that wraps around your head. The visor portion is sometimes curved or flat and the back is sometimes adjustable. The strap acts like a sweatband and a visor provides fantastic eye protection from the sunlight. The visor is more than just a boring, style-less piece of head wear. The visor has gone through a rise and fall in the fashion ranks throughout its history. The visor was invented by William Bower in London primarily for horseback riding and other active sports like golf. Visors have been made of a plethora of different materials like poly foam, heavy twill, brushed cotton, cotton twill, polyester, mesh, terry cloth and so many more delicate yet durable materials. The visor since its inception has been the go to piece of head wear for a variety of athletes and outdoor activities. The hat saw a rise in popularity in the 1980’s and was used as a vehicle for many advertising and promotional campaigns.

The most important of these aspects is the individual’s personal style. The color you choose or the visor’s backing strap type can be a deal maker or deal breaker for a potential visor wearer. The intended use of the visor also factors into your choice. The material and style has to be just right for the right activity. You will find a visor available in shorter and longer brim styles as well as in a variety of heights and thicknesses of the crown.
