Top 10 picks to prepare for the Summer Solstice!

The summer solstice is quickly approaching and at American Hat Makers we believe there is no better way to prepare for the longest day of the year than with a new sun hat. It’s important you choose a hat that fits your day-to-day lifestyle because we all know summer = sun and you’ll probably be wearing your new hat for extended periods of time. If you plan to be out in the sun for a while, you might want to consider a hat with a 2-3 inch brim. But whether you prefer a long or short brim, wearing a good hat (in addition to sunscreen) can help protect your face, ears and shoulders from harmful sun rays. 

To help you pick a hat that’ll not only last you all summer but all year-long, we’ve hand selected our top 10 styles for you below:

  1. Soaker Mesh Sun Hat - We love the detail of the braided band on this sun hat. Perfect on the golf course or in the garden!
  2. Cabana Mesh Sun Hat - What’s not to love about this Cabana hat, it’s lightweight, durable, packable and hand washable!
  3.  Amarillo Palm Sun Hat - This classic palm hat is comfortable, stylish and ultra lightweight-- perfect for summer!
  4. Crusher Outback Leather Hat - This hat does it all, you can crush it, pack it, or wear it and it’s very indestructible. 
  5. Cancun Palm Hat - This bold new style emulates the iconic top hat while retaining the feel of a straw hat, it’s lightweight, breathable and comfortable!
  6. Cabana Mesh Sun Hat - The brim and top of these hats are laminated to block 80% of the sun's rays, that’s impressive sun protection!
  7. Player Fedora - This hat perfectly matches its name; the Player. A compact brim and low-profile fedora crown allows for just enough subtlety to not be ostentatious, while the stylish, breathable ventilation keeps you cool in every sense of the world.
  8. Cabo Straw Top Hat - The Cabo straw hat features a classic leather hat band and is lightweight and comfortable enough to be worn anywhere! Brim: 2-1/2" 
  9. Westbound 2 Cord Mesh Western Hat - Our classic Double G western shape, made with our ultra durable, lightweight, and breathable sun hat mesh guarantees you can withstand any heat you encounter on your journeys! Brim: 2 3/4"

Our handmade fabric, mesh, and leather hats will have you more than ready for Summer this year. And I think it’s safe to say that everyone is looking forward to getting outside more. Whether you’re out working in the yard, or out on the golf course, American Hat Makers has you covered.
