Summary

Overview & Obtaining

Bowler hats are a stylish headgear that offers a significant boost to social impact (+15%), minimal armor for the head and ears, and a bit of extra insulation (mainly from heat). Bowler hats can be purchased, crafted, or stripped from Outlanders.

Crafting

As a complicated garment, bowler hats require complex clothing to be researched and can only be made at a hand-tailoring bench or an electric tailoring bench. A bowler hat requires 20 of any textile, and 30 units of work.

Bowler hats are almost identical to cowboy hats, with only a few minor differences:

  • Bowler hats boost social impact more (+15% vs. +10%)
  • Bowler hats offer less insulation from heat (40% vs. 50% )
  • Bowler hats cost fewer materials (20 vs. 25)
  • Bowler hats are slightly less valuable (reflecting the smaller number of materials required)

Given the similarities, the choice between cowboy hats and bowler hats is mostly one of style.
