Choosing the correct size
Although our sunglasses and sunhats come with unique adjustable straps which allow them to grow with your child, it’s important to select the correct size when choosing your Banz gear.
Adventure Banz and Retro Banz ranges
The Baby size fits a head circumference (see Note below) between 43cm and 52cm, or two months to two years
The Kidz size fits a head circumference (see Note below) between 48cm and 55cm, or two years to five years
NOTE: Please do not use the head measurement taken by Plunket when deciding which size of sunglasses to buy. The Plunket measurement is taken over the child’s temples and is not where the glasses are worn. Please measure your child snugly over the eye area for a correct fit.
The JBanz range features several different frame styles, all with a classic ‘arm’ design, which are suitable for approximately four to 10 years. Some children may be able to wear sunglasses from this range younger than four years, while older children may find they still fit just fine (for example, at the time of writing our 12 year-old son happily wears his JBanz Flexerz sunglasses, which are a great fit).
Sometimes, one frame style may suit the shape of the child’s face better than others and the fit may be better. If you would like to swap your JBanz sunglasses for another style, please let us know.
The Baby size fits a head circumference of up to 50cm, or two months to two years
The Kidz size fits a head circumference between 48cm and 56cm, or two years to five years
Banz Flap Swimhats are made from a nylon/Spandex blend similar to the material used to make most swimwear but, unlike most swimsuits, Banz Flap Swimhats are specially made with a built-in UV protection factor for extra protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. The Swimhats have been clinically tested to a rating of UPF 50+ which is the highest available.
The Swimhats come in three sizes – Small (3-18 months); Medium (18 months – 4 years) and Large (4-8 years).
