Flats Nation Performance Hats are now in the Store!

As mentioned before, it took some time to find the correct product and supplier for our concept and feature set to work in concert with our other Technical wear.

After years of trial and error with other types of hats, we had a list of features we wanted while getting roasted in the sun and sweat running into our eyes while trying to make that next quick cast from past types. 🙄

So, we are happy to announce that we have the first two colors (White and Light Grey) for our new Flats Nation Tech Hat in our store! 😎

What makes these different from your typical mesh trucker hat (we will have those in the Store soon, also), thus a welcome relief when picking fights with farm animal-sized fish or other speed demons while on the Bow or Wading the Flats in 90-plus-degree heat!

Here is the feature set we wanted, researched, and inspected before selecting these. Let us know if you agree.

  • White or light in color will help fend off the heat while adding to the cloud/sky effect you already use in your other clothing to help blend into the sky background.

  • Low crown

  • Lightly structured, moisture-wicking, lightweight materials.

  • Pre-curved Visor

  • Sweatband style along the bottom edge. That Bonefish or Tarpon will only give you a few seconds to make a cast; the last thing you need is more sweat running into your eyes.

  • The crown has no mesh material, so guys with thinning (or no) hair will have even greater protection from the Sun. These are also UPF50+ rated!

  • It employs a fully adjustable Hook/Loopback back strap to find that sweet spot just for your comfort level! This is unlike others that use snaps that seem or feel either too tight or too loose as the day progresses.

  • Black under the bill to help reduce glare from spilling onto the back of those polarized shades you spent a small fortune on.

And maybe, just maybe, it will become your next favorite hat to wear, not just your "Lucky Fishing Hat." Like the face shield, it becomes one of those items you will turn back around to pick up because you left it behind! 😉

Plus, we will have other types with our logo for more all-around/casual wear soon! We understand if you want to save this one just for fishing! 😎👍

And a big shout out to Outdoor Cap and Logo Sportswear for going above and beyond to help us with this project!

Plus, we are working on other clothing and gear and should have them in the mix soon! Finding the right collaborations and (quality) suppliers is not always easy, and we have some great ones right now.

Also, The "Flats Nation" Merch and Swag collection, if you like our content, has some new works, from T-shirts to our newer Technical wear, just in time for Tarpon Season, which can be found Here:

In the meantime,
