“Travelers beware, you don’t want a run in with this good for nothing.”
The “Trail Bandit” is a beaver blend, fully distressed size 7 (56cm). This type of distressing takes a while but the final outcome is worth the wait when building one of these beauties!
3 1/2 inches wide brim with a 4 inches high crown.
The crown has a hand cut leather band with antique bronze color studs. The next layer is a hand dyed leather lace that wraps around and ties off in the back. An owl feather rest on the right side of the brim (stitched in place).
The inside has a comfortable leather sweatband and a golden satin liner.
Handmade, one-of-a-kind hat from Ugly Outlaw. The “Trail Bandit”.

Yes!!!! Ugly Outlaw WANTS you to sweat in them! It’s adds to the character! Get that natural outlaw sweat ring around the crown! I specialize in Western character hats similar to but not necessarily exact in design to historic cowboys and gunslingers both historically and cinematically.
If you have a style, color and size in mind then feel free to write to Ugly Outlaw and let me know. I may be booked up and it may take a few weeks but I'll try my hardest to make it? Let’s chat and we’ll figure it out.
Shipping is not only calculated by the weight but also by the size of the box needed to ship a hat in. Location plays a huge role in the Price as well. Many times Ugly Outlaw has eaten the cost because we didn’t charge enough. If you live in California or close to Los Angeles then shipping may be considerably cheaper. If this is the case we can gladly refund to your personal PayPal account. Ugly Outlaw takes great care and consideration when shipping the hats. I custom make a proper, sturdy hat box to keep the hat from shifting around while on its journey.
Yes! The majority of the hats on the site are handmade. On some occasions I will restore a vintage hat by giving it a new shape and look . Those hats will always be labeled as “Restored” with a description. Making hats is a process. A hat can sometimes take a week to make. A blank piece of felt or beaver fur is made wet with hot water, it’s molded over a particular hat block of whatever size I choose to make that day, it’s ironed, steamed, sanded, steamed some more, shaped, then sprayed with hardener, shaped even more, then the band is added, etc, and so on.
Great question! Each hat is priced accordingly based on a few things. The main thing being the type of felt. 100% wool can range between $100-200 depending on the amount of time and effort put into it. 100% hare (rabbit) can range between $300-400 and beaver fur goes for $355-500, once again depending on the amount of time, effort and materials. Another factor is the weight of the fur which is measured in grams. For example, a western weight 165g hat would be a higher price since it is thicker and more durable.
Yes! Message me for details.
No. ALL SALES ARE FINAL!!!! Please make sure your hat size is correct. Please measure your head and let me know both inches and centimeters so I can get an exact size for you. Please don’t base the size on a hat you already own quite simply because a lot of brands vary in sizes and are off in one direction or the other. For example, a hat may be a 7 1/8 but another brand may call that a 7 1/4.
