Traditional and Rugged
The fur trapper hat is a worldwide icon. This classic headgear was originally made to protect trappers and hunters from harsh winter conditions. Here at Merlin’s Hide Out, our iconic Trapper Hat style is available in Buffalo Fur, Red Fox Fur, and Beaver Fur. Each Buffalo Fur Trapper Hat is made from prime winter buffalo fur, and will protect you from all of Mother Nature’s elements.
Buffalo Fur: Weather The Elements
According to the National Park Service, the American Bison can survive temperatures as low as -40 with blizzard winds of up to 50 mph. The bison’s thick winter coat is so protective and insulating that their skin won’t melt snow that accumulates on their fur. This prime winter fur (sourced here in the USA) is what we use to hand craft our Buffalo Fur Trapper Hat. Your Trapper Hat will keep heat in, and keep the elements out to keep you warm, toasty, and dry.
Like all our American buffalo fur products, the Buffalo Fur Trapper Hat is strong and durable; you can rest assured that this hat will work (and play) as hard as you will for generations to come. To create our premium Buffalo Fur Trapper Hat, we only use garment tanned buffalo hides. This ensures that the hide, and finished hat, is soft, flexible, and very resistant to wear and tear.
Practical and Versatile
Our classic Buffalo Fur Trapper Hat style is based on years of history. Using the leather straps, our Buffalo Fur Trapper Hat can be worn with the ear flaps down or tied back. Whether you wear your trapper hat hunting, fishing, or enjoying some winter sports, you’ll be warm and dry.
For generations, hunters and fishermen chose trapper hats to guard against the snow and cold. A Merlin’s Hide Out Buffalo Fur Trapper Hat is perfect for any outdoor situation including hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, ice skating, skiing, and more. Our Trapper Hats are unisex, and are one size fits most.
