This is a good idea, but, unfortunately, the brim is so small (smaller than the picture would imply unless the model is a very tiny person) that it provides almost no sun protection.
Great for sun activities

We have not tested this for underwater, yet, buy my 8 year old granddaughter is thrilled with hers. She will need it for sailing camp. I really like that it is unlikely to fly off her head in the wind.

Bought three for my girls... Fit great, stay on their head, awesome sun protection. My daughters even surf with them!
Sunshine may be good for the soul, but the delicate skin on your face needs protection. If only sunbonnets and baseball hats would stay securely in place like a swim cap. . . That’s what Karen Gellis, a mom of three children was thinking when she came up with the idea for Swimlids.
This innovative sunny day solution is uniquely designed to fit snugly on your head like a swim cap, yet Swimlids are comfortable and look like a baseball hat. On a windy day, while boating, splashing around in the ocean, or even swimming under water, these sun hats stay right where you want them. The nylon spandex material is quick drying and features built-in UPF 50+ sun protection and a variety of bright, bold colors to choose from.
Top off your outfit with a Swimlid and soak up whatever the day holds without worry.
