When packing for the beach, hats are crucial, both to top off your look and to protect you from the sun. If you still haven't found a sun hat to your liking or in your price range, let's try another option: Amazon. After all, you can find some amazing t-shirts on there, not to mention totes. I perused a ton of hats on the e-retailer and selected the best ones, ahead, based on style, function, price, and reviews. Before you even think about laying out in the sun this season, make sure you're armed with one of the hat options below.
