11/24/2014 Winter Hats

Winter has arrived!

And it looks to be a really bad one for much of North America. It will undoubtedly bring drastic and inconsistent drops in temperature.

The three parts of the human body more sensitive to shifts in temperature are the face, head, and chest. "If you don't have a hat on," says Richard Ingebretsen, MD, PhD, "you lose heat through your head, just as you would lose heat through your legs if you were wearing shorts."

And that makes sense when you remember that heat travels from hot areas into cooler areas. Covering up will appear to prevent more heat loss because it helps with your feels-like temperature.

This is why Cardenas Hats have paid equal attention to form and function with our hat designs. You can select from a host of high-quality cowboy, western, and fedora hats that will help prevent heat loss — and look good while doing it! But three hats in particular are perfect for colder seasons:

Sutton Fedora by Cardenas HatsThe Sutton Fedora

While the word 'fedora' came from a 1882 play by dramatist Victorien Sardou and had been used to describe a style of hat since 1891, its popularity spiked during Prohibition-era United States. Its felt-density is perfect for trapping in heat on colder nights. And no one can deny the its classical take on timeless style! Our Sutton fedoras come in Black, Chocolate, Cocoa, or Olive colors.

Coronado-styled cowboy hat from Cardenas HatsThe Coronado

The Coronado is the perfect cowboy hat for winter weather, not simply because of its higher-than-normal felt density. With a crown height of 5 inches, the Coronado is guarantee to hold in plenty of body heat. This hat is the quintessential cowboy hat, necessary for any enthusiast's closet — daring, bold. Pick up a Coronado cowboy hat here.

The Tucson

An alternative to the Coronado is its cousin, the Tucson cowboy hat. The Tucson also sports a 5-inch crown and the same benefits of the Coronado. The Tucson is more casual than its Coronado cousin, but it still looks great paired with a suit or with jeans. Grab your very own Tucson now!

The Coronado and the Tucson cowboy hats both come in Black, Chocolate, Light Grey, Silver Belly, and Stone colors and an assortment of sizes!
