Best fishing hats are essential for ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable trip. From providing warmth to offering UV protection, these hats are our top picks. Additionally, we’ve got some other fantastic accessories specifically for fishing to further enhance your experience.
Best Fishing Hats & Accessories
Kenetrek Montana Midweight Boot Height Sock
These socks are among the best we’ve worn. They are a combination of merino wool, polypropylene, and nylon that produces a comfortable, warm, odor wicking, breathable and quick-drying sock. We hiked many, many miles in them in 2023 and did not get a single blister. Well done, Kenetrek! Consider wearing under your waders to keep feet warm in Alaska’s cold water.
Sitka Gear Cuffed Knit Beanie
Warm and functional, this hat is made from 80% wool and 20% nylon so it stays warm when wet and dries quickly. Even in summer, Alaska weather often merits a stocking cap; we bring one on every adventure.
Arcade Atlas Performance Stretch Belt
This belt is designed to provide a custom fit up to 40” in length, with a low-profile, micro-adjustable buckle. A long version (up to 52”) is also available. The one we received had the Cowabunga-Ivy Green pattern on it. For active fishing, or just wearing around town, we find stretch belts to be the absolute most comfortable solution. Arcade makes good ones.
AFTCO Best Friend Trucker Ball Cap
The design in this ball cap celebrates man’s best friend, and any human is lucky to have a good dog. Made from a poly-twill fabric, the sturdy lid keeps the sun out of your eyes and the rain off your head, while showing your allegiance to our country and to the ever-faithful dog.
Arcade Hardware Utility Belt
Like the Atlas Performance Stretch Belt, the Arcade Hardware Utility Belt is designed to provide a custom fit up to 40” in length, with a low-profile, micro-adjustable buckle. A long version (up to 52”) is also available. Belt width is 1.5”. This is also a stretch belt, but the outer material is a stiffer, Cordura-like material. This belt is great for hanging pliers or other tools on it. If you need a stouter belt than the Atlas, the Hardware is a good choice.
