Summer is a time for barbecues, rodeos, camping, fishing, and outdoor activities in general. But while you are spending all day out in the blistering summer sun, you want to be protected. No one wants to end their day with a painful, bright red head and neck. Luckily, cowboy hats can keep the sun’s rays at bay while also helping you look good.
Our Picks for 2019 Summer Cowboy Hats
The best cowboy hat for summer should be lightweight, cool, and shield you from the sun. Straw cowboy hats have become a staple in the hot summer months for this reason, but they are certainly not your only choice. At Sheplers Western Wear, we have pulled out a few of our favorite summer cowboy hat options in various styles.
- Stetson straw hats are a great choice for the hot summer months. Stetson is a high-quality and popular brand for cowboy hats and their straw options are no exception. Their collection is simple and stylish with a lot of light-colored hats so they can be worn for almost any occasion.
- Cowboy hats by Jason Aldean are another good choice for the summer months. Aldean’s hats tend to have a bit of a more rustic look than Stetson, with styles falling mostly into the brown and black color range. His hats look great with a traditional pair of men’s cowboy boots and a sturdy pair of blue jeans.
- The summer sun can be killer. If you are consistently outside for long hours, then a hat designed specifically for UV protection is a great option for you. Our selection includes hats of varying styles and colors so you should be able to find something you like easily.
- Palm leaf cowboy hats are similar to straw hats. They are lightweight and breathable so that your head can stay cool in the heat. This style has a bit more of a fun design than your traditional brown straw hats.

- Just to mix things up, we are adding baseball caps to this list. While this is not your traditional summer cowboy hat, baseball caps are a great alternative when you do not want such a wide brim, but you are still looking for a bit of sun protection. They are stylish too. You can show off your favorite brands for a night out or throw one on when you are having a bad hair day.
No matter the time of year, a cowboy hat can be the perfect addition to your western style clothing. Shop our extensive selection to find your perfect hat for every occasion.
