Quality Descriptions

Buying our one of a kind custom felt hats starts with choosing the quality of the material.

10X - Starts at $349

The Catalena 10X is made from 100% Rabbit Fur. The highest quality Rabbit Fur hat you'll find. It makes a good starter hat and wears well. However, it does not hold up as well with daily wear and tear as our higher quality beaver blend hats.

20X - Starts at $499

The Catalena 20X is great for everyday use. Will hold up better to a working cowboy's punishment and also looks great for frequent dress use. It's a blend of Rabbit and Beaver Fur and will hold its shape and size better than a rabbit fur hat.

50X - Starts at $629

The Catalena 50X is higher grade beaver blend for someone looking for that something extra in a blend. The 50X also comes with a higher grade sweatband and silk lining.

100X - Starts at $899

Made from 100% Beaver Fur, this is the best hat you can buy today, simple as that. This hat is for the person who really punishes a hat daily and expects it to hold up under the worst conditions; or those who know hats and simply expect the highest quality. The Catalena 100X offers the highest level of resistance to water while still holding its shape and is thin, crisp, and comfortable, exactly what you expect from a 100% beaver hat. It also comes with the finest quality lambskin sweatband and colored silk lining.
