Yes, folks ... BIG NEWS and GOOD NEWS. I am here through end of July. Then the Goodnight Historical Center takes over the store and land . A lot of our best products will be carried over into their store, thankfully. I am also building a new house on the North side of US 287 .... and (sssshhhhh) most likely will still have jerky, meat and a few other things available there. No; we are not "quitting" - HERD WEAR will continue (while I spend more time fishing and with family). Be sure you are on our email list and also on Buffalo Wool Co's list. Keep checking the blog posts on this website as well ... i will be adding info there about the events ... and they are lining up sweet! Come see us while we are here!

Palo Duro Cowboy Hat


THe very last of a great hat!

Palo Duro Cowboy Hat is a Litefelt® packable cowboy hat, made from 20% bison fiber and 80% domestic wool, blended to create a unique, durable, stylish and soft hat.  Our best seller for the last 9 years!

The inventory was accurate as of November 2023 ... and that is all there will ever be, most unfortunately

Medium crown, front pinch style with a 3 1/4" brim. Available in weathered pecan and rope. Trimmed with a corded gross-grain hat band. Made exclusively for Buffalo Gold by Bollman Hats in Adamstown, Pennsylvania.

I bought this hat because my old felt hat was badly worn. This good looking hat caught my eye. Once I put it on I was sold. Most comfortable hat I ever had. I’m still surprised how warm it is. Perfect for a winter day outdoors.

Palo Duro Cowboy Hat

I wanted the Maverick hat for my father in law but that style in his size was unavailable. The next best option was the Cowboy hat which my father in law loves. The quality of these hats are amazing, we are overall very happy with the purchase, and customer service is outstanding. Thank you Cecil!

Sean K. (South Dakota, United States)

The hats are excellent, I own 2, wife got her first. They are warm, durable and stylish. The best customer service and personable folks. Cecil was great and took the time to text to make sure I’d be happy with the hat. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend.

Sean: Thanks (again). Wish Bollman was capable and willing to continue with these .... but only time will tell; right now all we have is all we are going to have, so enjoy!

Even Better than Expected!

I ordered the Palo Duro Cowboy Hat from Herd Wear. I asked many questions and received prompt answers and even extra pictures to ensure that I was getting what I wanted. I ordered the Appaloosa color for sentimental reasons and was not disappointed. It was a very light brown with gray, which I was able to see better with the extra pictures. It arrived very quickly. I wear between a 7-1/4" and 7-3/8" in fitted caps and the Medium size fit perfectly! I am extremely happy with the purchase and would order from this retailer again! Thank you Cecil!!

Herd Wear Service

Visited Herd Wear website for the first time. Reviewed their products and everything I saw was first class items. Ordered two hats and was really pleased with the helpful service from the people I spoke with. Gave me options on one of the hats. Ordered and received them in short order. Very pleased with quality of both. Would recommend them highly.

James: Thanks for taking time to write such a kind and thoughtful review. Glad we could be of help. Stay safe and thanks again.

Proud to wear my new Palo Duro hat!

Supporting this business is worth it! Their love of the buffalo is why I chose to make my purchase from Herd Wear. The hat that I ordered was made of buffalo felt and it not only fits great but it wears beautifully. I needed a new hat for my work with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and I’m so glad I chose this one!
