What are the benefits of wearing a rain hat?

Anyone who has ever been caught in a sudden downpour knows the importance of having a rain hat handy. A rain hat can help to keep your head and face dry, preventing you from feeling cold and wet. In addition, a rain hat can help to protect your hair from the damaging effects of the rains that fall, wherever you are.

When your hair is wet, it is more likely to break and become frizzy. By wearing a rain hat, you can help to keep your hair healthy and looking its best. So next time you head out into the rain, be sure to bring along a trusty rain hat.

Whether you're looking for style, function or both, a rain hat from WAWWA is the perfect choice.

Jay Cap - Waterproof Hat

Our Jay Cap is a 5 panel ripstop cap that was our first millinery labour of love. After trying out 10 different samples, we finally perfected the design and made it robust enough to protect your head while still being packable and nimble. It's perfect for any weather and can be worn on any day of the week. The waxed version is especially resistant and can be reproofed over and over again to keep you dry for years to come. So if you're looking for a sustainable and functional hat ready for a range of activities, our Jay Cap is the perfect choice!

Available in 4 different colours, Biscuit Orange which is a deep rusty colour, Petrol Blue which is a deep navy blue with a matte finish and then a classic Black, again with a matte finish. If you got these colours in, you'd have a great rotation of waterproof hats ready to complement any fit.

Each one is hand crafted in our own Manchester production unit. The toggle on the back can be tightened making it suitable for windy days too. The only drawback, is that the waxed fabric does not allow for much breathability meaning body heat can be trapped, making it not the best waterproof hat for very warm days. But it's still great on a normal summer day all the way through the winter and back to the Spring, with the perfect colours for each season.

Waxed Boonie Waterproof Hats

The Waxed Boonie Hat is our take on the classic bush hat. It's made from waxed cotton which makes it water resistant and perfect for any weather conditions. The brim provides excellent sun and rain protection, making it ideal for any outdoor activities. And the best part? It's packable and can be easily stored away when not in use.

Taking inspiration and features from military forces design, this waterproof hat also comes with a neck toggle, meaning it can be tightened for use on windy days.

The materials used are organic and dyed and finished in the UK, making it rank highly on oth sustainability and practicality. Plus, discover the secret stash pocket, perfect for a range of items such as a shopping list, or some tiny gifts that you don't want others to find. It's all in the details!

The colours available if you want multiple waterproof hats are Black, Beige (we call it Desert Sand or Oat), Khaki Green, Biscuit Orange and Petrol (Navy Blue). As time goes by we'll also be looking to expand this collection of colours to make sure you always have the most stylish protection with our waterproof hats!

How should you select a waterproof hat?

When choosing a rain hat, it's important to consider both style and function. For example, if you'll be spending a lot of time outdoors, you'll want a hat that provides good sun and rain protection. If you're looking for a hat that can be easily packed away, then a packable option is ideal. And if you need a hat that can be worn in all seasons, then a waxed fabric hat is a great choice. Plus as they age, their form will change slightly and develop new colours and character.

How to care for your waterproof hats and make sure they stay in style for years to come

To keep your waxed hat in top condition, it's important to reproof it regularly. This will help to repell water and keep the fabric looking good as new. Simply brush the hat with a soft bristled brush to remove any dirt or debris, then apply a waterproofing treatment. We reccomend using our reproofing spray as it's specifically made for these hats. The reproofing spray is available at a price of £12 excluding delivery.
