Meet the Umbrella Hat, Your Hands-Free Protection Solution

Ready to have some fun and get things done? Stay protected with an umbrella you don’t have to hold. You’ll soon see that life is better under an umbrella hat – it’s time to explore your wild side and live free!

The umbrella hat, while not a new invention, sure is a useful one. Not only can it give hands-free protection from rain, it also provides sun protection. That means an umbrella hat can be used as a hands-free parasol. Umbrella hats are adjustable for both large and small diameters to provide protection to both children and adults, so you can protect yourself and your loved ones.

The Umbrella That Lets You Multitask

While some might think an umbrella hat is merely a novelty item for the sports enthusiast, once you’ve experienced how easy it is to stay dry and safe from the sun, it will be a necessity for any outdoor event. With an umbrella hat, you can stay protected from the elements while having full use of your hands to do anything you need to do. You can play sports, take a photo, or enjoy a meal. All this is made possible when you don’t have to hold a traditional umbrella.

There are many reasons to want to be hands free and still be protected from the elements. You can have two hands free for helping children in and out of the car, you can carry cardboard boxes without them disintegrating in the rain, or carry grocery bags in a downpour with only one trip. You can also carry that project to work and keep it protected from the elements. You can even wear an umbrella hat as a fashion statement. Recently, they have been seen on the red carpet as avant-garde headwear by high fashion designer Fendi. Our umbrella hats are the funky novelty variety, but the objective can be the same.

You need both hands these days. An umbrella hat will let you hold your coffee and your phone and still stay cool and dry. Order now!

The History of the Umbrella Hat: Loved and Hated for Decades

Was this cool and fun accessory ever really popular? What led to this iconic creation? Take a look at the history of this much-maligned weather gear and judge for yourself.

Umbrella Hat History Lesson

Who invented the umbrella hat? We don’t know for sure. After a lengthy search, here’s the information we have on a few contenders to give credit to for the creation of these epic fashion accessories.

The invention of the umbrella hat is generally attributed to an eccentric named Robert W. Patten who lived in Seattle from 1890 to 1910. Patten was somewhat of a local celebrity, and was known to regale Seattleites with largely apocryphal tales of his life — like how he’d been a Civil War hero put on special assignment by Abe Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. As for the umbrella hat, he claimed that he invented it while prospecting in Mexico, but whether that’s true is impossible to say. Undermining his claim is a patent for an umbrella hat by S.N. Campbell from 1855, though it’s certainly possible that Patten had the same idea on his own. [US13212A - Sunshade - Google Patents]
