About Us

The best sun protection hat for an active lifestyle.

Swimlids was founded in 2014. Our company is located in southern Maine. Our hats are meant for people who care deeply about protecting their ears and face from the sun, but who also enjoy swimming, kayaking, boating, SUPing, surfing, water aerobics, and more. Our hats stay on during all of these activities. In addition our hats are lightweight and extremely packable - most of our customers enjoy travel too! As melanoma rates continue to rise we hope that you will take extra care to protect those beautiful faces! And please share your pics with us - we love to see everyone jumping in the surf in their Swimlids. Visit our blog to learn more about our company!

Swim. Splash. Play. Protect.
