The Best Rain Hats on Amazon


Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

And while we’ve written about ways to stay dry in the rain — including the best umbrellasrain jackets, and rain boots — here we’ve rounded up the best rain hats, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

Best-rated rain hat

Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero

Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero

With 747 reviews — 79 percent of which give this hat 5 stars, at the time of posting — the Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero is the best-rated pick available by a large margin. It’s more expensive than some of the other options, but reviewers say it’s the best rain hat out there and worth paying the little extra up-front. “This is my second” Seattle Sombrero, writes one reviewer. “The first finally gave up after 15 years of serious use camping, hunting, and fishing in the wilds of Oregon.” Comments highlight a few things: the overall high-quality construction, breathable Gore-Tex fabric, excellent waterproofing, and easy packability. As one reviewer recalls: “Last year, my husband and I traveled to Russia on vacation. One cold, rainy day, when all of our fellow travelers were huddled under umbrellas, I unpacked this hat and enjoyed the freedom of being able to walk anywhere, hands free to snap some gorgeous pics, snug as a bug.”

Frogg Toggs Waterproof Breathable Boonie Hat

Waterproof Breathable Boonie Hat
Reviewers love this Frogg Toggs rain hat for being waterproof, breathable, and, most of all, a great deal. It might not be as waterproof and breathable as our top pick — nothing can match Gore-Tex in those categories — but it’s still one of the best rain hats out there. As one reviewer writes: “Let me just say this, this hat is a steal at this price! I work in the elements all year long and needed protection for the sun, rain, sleet, and snow. This hat is totally waterproof and has a big enough brim to give me protection down to my chin and the back of my neck.” Reviewers also say this hat is lightweight and packable in addition to being functional in the rain. As one reviewer notes, “You can easily fold up the brim for packing or carrying, and you can crush the head portion into any shape you want … it’s easy to get it pocket-sized for a jacket or poncho pocket or a decent-sized pants pocket.”

Best stylish rain hat

Outback Trading Australian Oilskin Hat

Australian Oilskin Hat

This classic-looking rain hat might not look waterproof, but it’s made from Australian oilskin fabric, which is heavy cotton that’s been treated with oil to repel water. Reviewers appreciate the old-school waterproofing technology, and say it works really well. “In a downpour my head stays bone-dry,” one writes. “Water beads up and rolls right off,” says another reviewer. People appreciate this hat for being both functional and stylish. “It is not a hat to hide in your pocket,” writes one reviewer, “but it is a hat to keep you comfortable no matter what Mother Nature sends. I was prepared for the weather, but I also knew that I looked very cool!” Reviewers say this hat is really well-made, and a “fantastic quality for the price.” According to one enthusiastic reviewer, “the durability of this hat cannot be overemphasized!” In summary: “It is very handsome, the fit is spot-on, and it should develop a nice patina over time.”



4 Top-Rated Leather Wallets On Amazon That Make Great Gifts For Any Guy In Your Life


No offense, but guys can be really hard to shop for. While some have very specific ideas of what they want, most others don’t give gift-givers much to work with.

One of the best go-to gifts for any hard-to-shop-for dude in your life? A nice leather wallet. It’s one of those items that gets used every day, but it isn’t replaced nearly as often as it should be. Plus, it feels a bit fancy, but it’s also functional. And it can be given as a main present or tucked into a stocking. It’s basically a no-brainer.

You can find good-quality leather wallets at most major department stores, but if you want to avoid the holiday crowds, just head over to Amazon. The leather wallets on Amazon are high-end, durable and, best of all, affordable. Check out four of the top-rated options available right now

This Secret Amazon Section Is Stocked With Vintage Designer Bags for Less

As someone who spends eight hours a day on Amazon, I’ve found pretty much every secret section the site has to offer. Whether that’s the Premium Brands Outlet or the $5 personal styling service, there is no shortage of under-the-radar fashion departments on Amazon. And my latest find might just be the best one yet; there’s an entire section of pre-loved designer handbags available for discounted prices.


The selection of vintage bags includes styles from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Celine, and Chanel, starting at $450. But because the bags are pre-loved and going for lower prices, the stock is extremely limited. Below, browse three designer handbags to grab from Amazon’s Shopbop section before it’s too late.

Starting off with one of the lowest-priced options, you can get a classic Louis Vuitton wallet for $595. The brown pouch has a checkered pattern adorned with the brand’s logo, a gold zipper, and a gold keyring with a lobster clasp. It’s big enough to fit a few cards and cash, along with your keys, making it the perfect wallet for everyday use. There are currently four of them in stock, so you have a little wiggle room — but we wouldn’t recommend waiting too long to grab one.

Louis Vuitton wallet

If you’re looking for an under-$1,000 designer handbag, go with the Gucci Half Moon Messenger Bag for $940. It’s made from jacquard fabric with the Gucci logo print and leather trim around the top zipper. Plus, it has an adjustable fabric shoulder strap, so you can decide how low you want it to reach. The mid-sized shoulder bag should easily fit your wallet, phone, keys, and a few other essentials for the day.

Gucci Half Moon Messenger Bag

Prada nylon bags have been spotted all over Hollywood. Megan Fox stepped out with a black nylon shoulder bag earlier this year, while Hailey Bieber was seen wearing a red one. And now, you can get your hands on the celeb-approved trend in the form of a pre-loved Prada nylon pouch with silver hardware. It has a top zipper closure and just enough room to fit a few essentials. The sleek black Prada bag is the perfect accessory to dress up or down, especially if you have any special events coming up this spring or summer.


Shoppers Have Finally Found the ‘Perfect Hat for Traveling’

A traditional fall travel outfit formula usually entails a comfy sweater, versatile pant, pair of supportive shoes, and reliable purse. But, if you really want to create a polished look (while also staying warm, protecting your face from the sun, and keeping your hair in check), Amazon shoppers recommend adding the Lanzom Wide Brim Panama Hat into the equation. 


Right now, the popular wool fedora, which has racked up more than 8,500 five-star ratings, is on sale for up to 31 percent off. And while the original price tag is already incredibly affordable, this means that you can get the wide brim hat for as little as $18. Just note that the discount varies depending on which of the 28 colors you choose.

To buy:, $18 (originally $26) 


With a circumference of 22.6 inches and a 2.9-inch brim, the Panama hat makes a stylish statement without being too awkward, oversized or bulky. It has an interior strap that can be adjusted for a more customized fit (read: it can adjust from 22 to 22.8 inches )and can typically suit sizes 7 1/8 to 7 1/4. In fact, one reviewer noted that the hat is “adjustable on the underside” if it’s too big for your head. 


For optimal comfort, the interior is made of soft, breathable polyester. And, according to shoppers, it boasts a “very durable” exterior thanks to its wool construction and sturdy dome. It has a retro charm thanks to the leather band, which comes in two designs (one elegant and one with a western twist) that add contrast and make it look more expensive than it is. 


With its versatile silhouette and comfortable fit, the wide brim hat can easily be incorporated into any travel outfit, regardless of what’s on the itinerary. Pair it with your favorite jeans, skirts, dresses, shorts, and pants on travel days, sightseeing tours, shows, dinners, and more. 


One Amazon shopper raved that they’re “incredibly pleased with this hat,” calling it their “absolute favorite one.” Another shared, “[I] love this hat so much that I’ve bought it in multiple colors.” Chiming in, a third buyer said the Lanzom hat is “very cute and of good quality for the price.” And, one made a point to report that “it came in perfect shape,” so you can start wearing it immediately.


Speaking to its design and weight, a reviewer wrote, “I wore this in Nashville during the CMA Fest on 90-degree Fahrenheit days. It kept me cooler than on previous days, which were only in the mid-80s.” But, if the weather is chilly, another buyer assured others that it is “not hot, but keeps [my] head warm.” What’s more, one shopper praised it for having a “nice weight to it,” highlighting that “it won’t fly off your head with a hefty wind.”

It’s also earned a stamp of approval from travelers. One wanderlust shopper exclaimed, “If you’re looking for a fall [or] winter hat to keep the sun off your face, look no further!” Another travel enthusiast added, “I wore it numerous times while traveling. It has held its shape and function. I get a lot of positive remarks whenever I pair it with my leather jacket and boots.” 


Echoing their reviews, a customer shared, “I have been looking for the perfect hat for traveling and everyday wear. This hat is not only wonderfully priced but the quality is fantastic!” They also mentioned that the hat “traveled with me all through Ireland and looked great in our wedding photos.” A final traveler wrote, “It brought all my outfits together.”

While Amazon may be famous for its deals, there are plenty of affordable finds that you can scoop up at any time — no sale necessary. Case in point: These popular Amazon handbags.


The retailer has tons of inexpensive bags, including totes, crossbodies, satchels, fanny packs, convertible backpack purses, and trendy phone bags, that won’t cost you more than $25.
