The Arbuckle Hat was inspired by the ancient and beautiful Arbuckle Mountains in Southern Oklahoma. The striking colorwork motifs are reminiscent of the soft low peaks, the streams of crystal clear spring water, and the charming little waterfalls that grace the landscape of this old mountain range.
Ear-flaps allow this hat to sit fairly high on the head, while still keeping you toasty warm. This hat won’t fall into your eyes and looks great with sunglasses.
