Protect yourself from the sun and the rain with this tough and durable hat.Read more…
Our Frontier Hat echoes a style of headgear which has been around since the 1900s.
Originally made from wool felt or tweed, the 'bucket' hat was adopted by Irish farmers and fishermen and quickly became popular for outdoor pursuits because it could be easily stowed inside a pocket when not in use. On the grounds that 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', we haven't tried to reinvent the wheel and have simply created our version of this classic design in a modern, technical rip stop fabric with Durable Water Repellency™.
It features a hidden pocket concealed within the inner hat which is a handy place to hide a credit card or some folded notes.
It's light, water resistant, virtually indestructible and will keep your hair dry when it rains and protect your pate when it's sunny. Pack one in your kit and be ready for anything.
Good design is more often about what to take off than what to put on. And clever design is about giving one feature two functions, that’s why many Rohan garments feature an internal mesh stretch pocket that doubles as a Packpocket™ for easy storage.
Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish is a permanent, wicking treatment that rapidly spreads moisture, such as sweat, over a wide surface area of the fabric. This ensures the garment dries more quickly and you stay more comfortable - even in the hottest and most humid conditions.

This bucket-style hat is very effective for a variety of uses, and is extra handy as it can be easily stored in a pocket or a bag. It is very light and can be folded into a small size - but when worn there are virtually no creases in it - very impressive!!
The material is the same as the Frontier Jacket and Frontier Vest - the hat and the tops make a good matching set when worn together. The fabric is polyamide and is water resistant - I have worn it in heavy rain and my head was kept mostly dry. Also, it dries very quickly after being wet - very useful if you want to wash it speedily or simply wear it again after sheltering from the rain. The rip stop design of the material makes it strong and durable - I have worn this hat many times and it still looks in great condition.
There is an inside hidden pocket where small valuables can be stored - a good place to put some extra money if you want to keep it safe - especially if you are not carrying a bag.
I have worn this hat mainly for hiking in hills and trekking in mountains in South East Asia - it has been very effective at keeping the heat out, and it feels very breathable when on. The brim is not particularly large, so when there is extreme sun, I switch to the Escaper Cap which has a longer brim to provide more shade and protection.
