For more than 200 years, New England fishermen have braved the icy Atlantic with the help of the iconic Sou’wester – a distinctive hat whose extra-wide brim prevented bone-chilling rain and crashing waves from sluicing down their backs. Ours improves on the original – and keeps you bone dry – by replacing old-time oil cloth with lightweight, 100% nylon backed with a waterproof/breathable membrane. Seams are sealed, so no water sneaks inside – even in a relentless downpour. 100% polyester mesh lining and wicking sweatband lets fresh air circulate, so you’ll never feel like a steamed lobster. Foam brim is lightweight, keeps the hat afloat in case it slips off in a stiff wind. Adjustable wind cord snugs up with a cushy neoprene tab that won’t dig into your skin. Brim measures 3" in front, 2½" wide on sides, and 4" wide in back. Snap-up sides.
