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.


We had quite the list of features we wanted to employ after years of trial and error with other types, this while getting roasted in the sun and sweat running into our eyes while trying to make that next quick cast!


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, and see 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 the guys with thinning (or no) hair will have even greater protection from the Sun, and these are 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.

  • Dark 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 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! 😉

And we will soon have more of what we would label as more "Off the Water" colors of these very same ones.

Plus, we will have other types with our logo on them. 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!



In the meantime,
