Cowboy Hats from The Last Best West

The Last Best Cowboy Hat – hand made quality hats. Our custom western hats are made the old west way – one at a time, starting with the best fur-felt hat body available – made in the USA – and fashion as fine a custom western hat as you can find.

ABOUT OUR BEAVER FUR-FELT HAT BODIES

Beaver Fur Felt is dense and virtually waterproof. It consists of beaver and/or rabbit/hare fur blended with felt to produce a material that lasts 5-10 times longer than wool-felt. A fine Beaver and Beaver blend fur-felt hat can be re- shaped numerous times, with just a steam source and a bit of patience. And is the premier material from which to manufacture fine hats.

As a general rule of thumb if a hat maker only describes their hat bodies as fur-felt, chances are it’s rabbit or Hare. Hat makers who use beaver fur-felt are proud of it and will state so. We sell 3 quality beaver blends of fine western hats – 5X, 20X and 100X. 5X is a blend of about 5% beaver with rabbit and felt. Our 20X is 50% beaver and our 100X is pure 100% beaver fur-felt.

For an all weather hat – you can’t beat a pure beaver cowboy hat. Light, stiff, and fabulous looking it’ll shed what ever comes it’s way.
