Melin is known as the new kid on the block, but in the nine years they’ve been manufacturing hats they’ve made their stamp on the industry. The underpinning goal for the brand was to fill the gap in the high-end market, which many other brands were missing. Melin hats are made from premium materials and are paving the way for a higher end, luxury hat industry.

Setting itself apart from other hat brands

Melin have three focal points when designing a hat for their range; materials, details, and innovation. Melin does carry a much higher price bracket than the likes of Nike and New Era, but what you do pay for is absolute top quality. Melin might be a new brand on the market, but it’s making waves and is proving popular with hat enthusiasts all over the globe. Let’s delve into some of their most popular designs.

The Hydro Hat

The Melin Hydro Hats are one of the most popular Melin hats on offer. Unlike other brands that are big in the hat market, Melin are big on technology. The Hydro Hat has been designed for those who live busy, outdoor lifestyles. Each Melin Hydro Hat has hydrophobic technology built in, along with a buoyant visor, moisture-wicking lining, and an antimicrobial sweatband. These hats are built to last and are arguably the most comfortable and breathable on the market. And what’s more, Melin cares about those little details, and they feature a ‘stash pocket’ in the crown, which can be handy to carry small personal items on the go.
