The Reni provides extra sun protection for summer trekking holidays, long days at the crag or even an afternoon nap in your hammock if you’re feeling especially lazy!
The Reni is constructed from 2 layers of organic cotton fabric, providing plenty of protection from harmful UV rays. The bucket hat design provides better protection than caps, covering your ears and most of your neck, whilst still stuffing into smaller pockets.
Cotton is highly breathable, allowing hot air to pass through it to help keep you cool when the sun is beating down. Cotton’s absorbent properties are a real advantage in summer, where it absorbs sweat or water to stop you overheating. Dunk it in a tarn or alpine drinking trough when it’s really hot!
100% organic cotton
Wash by hand with lukewarm water using a non-biological detergent or pure soap. DO NOT use fabric conditioners or softeners and rinse thoroughly in clean water. Line dry and DO NOT tumble dry or iron. Who irons their hat, anyway?!

How It Is Made
We’re committed to only using cotton from organic or Better Cotton Initiative-certified sources which is why we’ve used 100% organic cotton for the Reni. As well as being free from harmful fertilisers and pesticides, organic cotton uses significantly less water and produces lower levels of greenhouse gases.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
