Rain hats – the perfect alternative to an umbrella!
Obviously, water-resistant and water-proof materials play an important role in the making of a rain hat. No one who thinks that a good rain hat needs a glossy finish could be more wrong. Coated hats made from leather or cotton make for excellent companions through drizzle in summer or showers in autumn. The designs with the integrated UV filter are incredibly useful. In case of a sudden weather change your sensitive scalp will not just be protected from moisture, but harmful sunlight as well. Cotton hats with a waxy finish – so called ‘oilskin’ hats – are equipped to deal with any weather. It was sailors who first thought to dip their linen clothes in oil barrels to make them weatherproof.
During winter a rain hat with a cosy lining will not go amiss. Durable wool felt hats from the popular VitaFelt collection make for great rain hats thanks to their water-proof features. They can be worn during sunshine or rain and will not lose their original quality. Classy leather decorations lend long-lasting traveller hats a timeless look.
No matter if it is a southwester, waxed cotton or wool felt – you can weather the next rainstorm with a rain hat from the house of Stetson!
