Cape Ann Sou'wester - Woodworking
This is the real thing.

Developed in the 1800s near Cape Ann, Massachusetts, these authentic Sou'westers were originally designed to offer superior protection against the foul weather that fishermen routinely encountered in the North Atlantic.

Manufactured in Nova Scotia using the same forming process that was used nearly 200 years ago, the polyethylene and cotton hats are now weatherproofed with a more durable black polyurethane coating instead of the traditional linseed-oil/lampblack combination. Comfortably lined with warm flannel cotton, they have large flip-down earflaps and a convenient chinstrap for gale force wind protection.

The upturned brim serves to capture the falling rain and redirect the water flow down the long sloped back of the hat, away from the face and neck. The hats are easily rolled or scrunched up for compact transport or storage.

A centuries-old yet extremely relevant product. Hand washable.
