Embrace Impact Hat Review at Phoenix City Championships

Flex Curved Trucker Heather-Black

Golf Hat Review

This week in my golf hat review I road-tested my Embrace Impact – Flex Curved Trucker – Heather Grey/Black – Tan Leather Patch – 600 Series (Branded Bills HQ) Mesh Back Adjustable Fit hat at the Phoenix City Golf Championship 2021. This three-day event, each at a different course (GCU, Aguila, and Papago) was a real test as the pin positions were tough and the greens were hard and fast. When I had a tough hole I felt motivated to get back on track and make great connections on the next hole and give myself birdie chances. That’s the power of embracing impact.

With the weather hot and sunny in the mid to high 90s, it is important to wear sunscreen and keep hydrated as each course to walk is around 6 miles a day. Headwear is important as you don’t want a hat that is suffocating and creates more heat on your head. You want a hat that is breathable and blocks the sun’s rays from overheating you.

Studies have shown that your head releases about 10% of your body heat, but it also accounts for absorbing a lot of heat during a sunny day. Wearing the right hat in the summer will keep you cooler. Yes, it’s true. Hats that keep the hot rays off your head will keep you much cooler than if you let the sun directly blast your head and face. So combine these thoughts and have a hat that blocks the heat and releases body heat, right?

The hat felt light on my head the full three days, even when the heat peaked at 100 degrees and in the early morning round in the 70s. Walking increases your energy usage and body temperature, I have to say my head did not sweat profusely like some other hats made me sweat. It kept me feeling cool and protected me from the harsh sun’s rays. I could not be happier with our choices in the production of our Embrace Impact performance hats.
