5 Under $50: Summer Hats

Hats are the perfect accessories for summer. Whether you don a beach hat, cowboy hat, fedora, or trucker cap, you’re shading your eyes, keeping your hair out of your face and protecting your scalp from sunburn. Here are a few affordable hats at our shop, but browse our full selection of men’s summer hats and women’s summer hats for more.

1) OAKLEY STRAW BEACH CAP $31.95

This colorful fedora comes in a pinkish cognac or tan (pictured above) with a beachy ribbon. Such a nice twist on the standard fedora. I like this one so much I own one in cognac!

2) PATAGONIA TRUCKER HAT $24.95

You can’t go wrong with a classic mesh-backed trucker hat. This one keeps you cool and shaded, plus it looks great on both men and women.

3) PISTIL ROXIE HAT $37.95

This woven raffia hat is a Western take on a beach hat. Wear it out on the sand, then don it to a hoe-down. The chin string makes this cowboy hat great for bike riding and indoor/outdoor events so you can wear it on your back when you’re inside.

4) DORFMAN PACIFIC TOYO SHAPEABLE WESTERN HAT $32.95

A cowboy hat for the active at heart, this Dorfman style is shapeable with an elastic sweatband to wick moisture. This is your classic cowboy hat without the bulk and weight.

5) KAVU CHILLBA $34.95

This modern rice paddy hat is a store favorite, and great for river floaters and Burning Man attendees. It’s hard to beat the shade this hat provides, plus its closed-cell foam construction is lightweight and won’t sink if you drop it in the water.

I'm Tahoe Mountain Sports' web editor and a 6-year Tahoe resident. Yep, I live the life, with a lake view from my desk, lunch breaks on the beach with my dog, and morning powder runs when the snow's good. I ski, snowboard, skate ski, and cross-country ski in winter, and hike, mountain bike, backpack, and lay around on Tahoe's beaches in summer.
