Bucket Hats

Bucket Hats

The bucket hat was first invented in the 1900s as a purely functional headwear accessory to protect the farmers and fisherman from the rain, cold or heat.  Traditionally, the bucket hat has been sported by fishermen - that is why it is also known as a fishing hat and it was also worn by farmers.   The bucket hat is a small brim with a floppy brim to protect your eyes and face from the sun.  It was also very popular because it could fit inside a coat pocket.  The floppy hat was made of heavy duty cotton fabrics such as canvas, denim, or thick wool.
In the 1940s the military troops started using a bucket hat in olive drab cotton fabric to protect the troops from weather conditions.  Later on this hat is better known as a Boonie Hat used currently by Troops all over the world and the US. Read More
