As closely linked to Teddy Roosevelt as his signature mustache and spectacles, the Rough Rider hat has a strong position in American western lore. Worn during the Spanish-American War by the 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry, a group led by Theodore Roosevelt in his pre-presidential days, the Rough Rider hat is recognizable with its wide brim, leather chin strap, and sometimes pinned up sides (pinning up part of the brim allowed for carrying rifles more easily).
Channel the spirit of President Roosevelt with this replica hat, perfect for any outdoor activity. Pin one or both flaps up with convenient snap closures for an authentic Rough Rider look.
