The Best Travel Hats for Business Travelers

Women's Kaminski Packable Fur Felt Cloche - The Bechiti Rollable Hat at

Men and women who travel quite a bit on business need hats that travel well, meaning that they need hats that can be folded and packed, then taken out and worn, requiring no more than a quick shake to reestablish the hat shape.

With winter hats in wool and fur, that’s a fairly easy task to accomplish. The hat pictured here is a fur felt cloche, a women’s hat. This unisex style lends itself to being a good travel hat by virtue of its malleable shape. Although fur felt hats can be rigid (think cowboy hats or dress hats like bowlers), the material can also be finished so that it’s rollable.

Leather or tweed caps are another good travel-friendly headwear choice, their compactness being an added bonus — especially these days when we’re paying extra for checked baggage and trying to find ways to travel light. Although berets don’t have earflaps (as do many winter caps), the beret is probably the quintessential travel hat and can simply stay in your pocket when not on your head.

Bon voyage!
