Many of us know just how essential that it is to have an American-made hat for every season. Whether it’s a beanie or a visor, it’s really important to cover your head and protect yourself.

Seeking out made in the USA hats and caps takes some time to figure out, though. You want to be sure that they’re top quality and that they’re going to last you awhile. Here are some of our suggestions for hats made in America.

This is another baseball cap that we think looks great and is comfortable. Army Made is a brand that focuses on selling patriotic themed hats, bandanas, and other gear. All of their products are made in the United States and all the embroidery is done in the United States, as well.

This particular cap is made from 100% cotton and has a low profile, soft crown. The bill is stiff and pre-curved, with the color staying the same on both the top and bottom of the bill. On the back of this American hat is a metal buckle that is adjustable, and the strap has a little United States flag on it. That adjustable strap makes it so that one size fits most.

This particular beanie is grey and is made from half recycled plastic bottles, and half organic cotton, and is one size fits most.

7. Emstate Plaid Linen Big Applejack Newsboy Cap Hat

Breathable fabric newsboy hat

Newsboy hats are a lot of fun. With their low profile and fun colors, these hats seem to come in and out of style over time. Emstate designed these Newsboy hats to fit most heads, and they’re designed with plaid patterns that have similar tones.

Made from linen, these hats utilize breathable fabric, so that you can wear them in the summer or winter months. It has an elastic sweatband that goes all of the way around your brow, and the hat is designed to be baggy on the sides.

What Do You Want from Your Hat Made in the United States?

As you start to shop for hats, there are a lot of different things that you can look for. We believe that these are the three most important things to pay attention to.

Sizing

It’s frustrating to buy a beanie and find out that it doesn’t fit on your head as it should! Good hats should fit snugly on your head without being painfully snug. Check out the diameter of the inside of the hat and compare that to the diameter of your head.

Style

What type of hat would you like to have? Some of us like old-style baseball caps, others like newsboy hats, and more. There are as many styles of hat as there are people who want to wear them, so you can pick what goes best with your personal style and appearance.

Color and Design

Now that you know what type of hat you want, it’s time to choose the color and design of that American cap. Bright colors or dull colors? Do you want something patriotic, rainbow colored, or some sort of logo? The color and design of your hat is an important part of the decision making process, too.

Baseball caps, fedoras, newsboy caps, beanies. All of them are lovely hats, and you can find plenty of them that are American made. If you enjoy wearing hats, it’s worth your time to see what you can find and to get American made products that you can use for the long term.
