At the Rain Hat Collection we have the fabulous job of choosing the best rain hats to sell. We base are choice on a number of factors. Firstly we want to keep you dry -ultimately that is what we are about. Unlike thousands of other hat sellers, we specialise in waterproof hats. Secondly our rain hats need to be stylish. And what we want to tell the world is that rain hats can be glamorous. Forget the image of rain hats being cheap plastic hats, or something that would look best on a scarecrow!
