Headwear refers to any element of clothing or protective gear that is used for covering the head. Hats, caps, beanies, headbands, and helmets are some commonly used headwear. They are manufactured using durable and versatile materials, such as wool, cotton, silk, fur, nylon, polyester fleece, and Kevlar. Headwear is widely used for outdoor activities, such as biking, motorcycling, running, hiking, fishing, hunting, skiing, and snowboarding. It protects the face and head from sunburn, reduces the risk of skin cancer, aids in regulating body temperature, and prevents severe head injuries. Headwear also provides comfort and warmth in cold conditions and prevents heat loss.
