RainierSun® is our brand for SunProtection headwear, featuring fun and practical designs made with tested UPF solar protection fabrics for all outdoor activities.

Our mission at RainierSun® is to provide the highest quality sun protective head-wear with fresh styles in appealing colors, all the while using top quality fabrics. All of our fabrics are fully tested to exacting specifications in order to guarantee the level of sun protection you are seeking.


Each of our hats has been individually designed by our design team in Seattle, WA. They strive for great looking styles, combine it with specialized features, and blend it together with top quality technical fabrics to give you that favorite hat which will last you for years to come.

We make hats for adults and children. Most of them are adjustable to fit different head sizes. All of them have a money back guarantee. If you don’t like it, you have 30 days to return the hat for any reason. We will replace or refund your payment.


Our brand, RainierSun®, is named after Mt. Rainier, an active volcano 70 miles Southeast of Seattle which dominates our skyline. Although Seattle is known for its cloudy weather, the top of the mountain is often bathed in Sun.  And when it’s not too cloudy below to see it, the sun on the mountain is exquisite.  We’ve posted a few of our favorite photos on pinterest here . Feel free to send us one of your favorite photos, plus a few words about why you like it, and we will add it to our site.
