Good Questions about Gone Country Hats


My head is small. Can I wear a cowboy hat?

Of course! Hats come in sizes but if your cowboy hat or cowgirl hat is too big (or too small), see our article "You can custom size your hat". See detailed tips to help you size your hat.

What are your cowboy hats made out of?

Our cowboy hats are made of strong natural materials, treated for excellent weather tolerance and comfort. Most are highly water resistant. Some are actually waterproof. On the description of each hat you can see its material. They are so well made that all of them come with our lifetime warranty. Even if something happens to your hat that is not our fault we will repair it or teach you how to fix it if it's fixable. We don't charge for that.

How do I know if my hat fits?

We use an extra strong elastic sweat band so our hats fit really well. Cowboy hats should feel snug, but not tight. Your hat should sit about 1-2 fingers above your ears and 1-2 fingers above your eyebrows. If it drops down over your ears you can raise it up by following the instructions to tighten your hat

What size should I buy?

Gone Country Hats are one size, adult sized medium or large. Kids' hats are one size. See our sizing chart in each section. If  you are unsure, call us at 678-842-4287.

What makes a cowboy hat right for a man or a woman?

Cowboy hats are usually unisex. The key to hat buying is proportion. If you need help figuring out what hat will be good for you, snap a selfie and email it to judy@gonecountryhats.com. We can make a recommendation based on your stature and face shape. Or look at our Men's store and Women's store. We have put the hats there that we think work well for guys or girls.

What happens if my hat gets wet?

All Gone Country hats are treated for water resistance, which means they will shed some water without being damaged. Our palm hats are really water tolerant, which means they can get very wet without being ruined. Some can get wet and stay wet pretty much indefinitely without harm. Learn more.
