You have probably seen my favorite green hat in quite a few photos. I got that hat in trade way back in 1999 when the guy buying my 9×18 Makarov was a few bucks short of cash and threw it in brand new. I never worn hats before but decided to try this one and loved it. It’s water-resistant, adjustable and very comfortable.

After many years of wearing this hat and using it as a photo prop, I decided to check if the same company makes other hats. Found that Henschel Hats makes a huge variety and acquired several for wearing and props. The gentleman who runs it was most helpful.

Seeing durable leather hats on my close friends, I wanted one for myself. Turns out that leather goes great with the belts, holsters and large-bore hoglegs. Below, a Henschel leather walker with a .500BFR.

    I’ve always wanted a hat like Ronald Reagan wore when he was horseback riding at his place in California and for the life of me I have yet to find anything close. Even the Reagan Library doesn’t have a close copy, they’re hawking the same crap Shepard’s and other western wear big box stores are selling.

    Still, hats are cool…..even if you have a full head of hair. They say alot about your personality and people can ‘read’ you by the style of hat you wear…

    All The Best,

    I picked up one of their water-resistant hats (waxed, not the oilcloth) a couple of years ago. It works very well at repelling water from the outside – but not nearly as well at repelling water from the inside (aka sweat). As I use it quite extensively in the rainy months (which is practically all the time – we see more cloudy days here than Seattle), and do a fair amount of outside work, this has resulted in a rather impressive sweat stain up front. I still like the hat – but I can’t wear it in good company. Sad.
