Originally created by WWI aces such as Red Baron, our Barnstormers Hat is patterned after the original flight helmets worn by open cockpit pilots in during the1920’s and 1930’s. This hat is a timeless piece, ideal for going out on a cold winter day.
• Crafted from soft shearling with leather welted seams
• Rugged heavy duty buckles
• Available in brown, or ecru
• Proudly made in the USA.
Leather and sheepskin lining is of excellent quality. I have purchased other hats of similar style and this is the best quality one. Less costly copies exist, but this is warmer and will last for years. One suggestion for improvement would be to add motorcycle helmet D-ring style fasteners, in lieu of, the traditional buckle. This allows the strap more flexibility in retaining tension around the neck. This is easily accomplished and plan to do it to mine. Thank you, RBH. (Posted on 2/10/2016)
