Summary

Overview & Obtaining

Cowboy hats are the complementary garment to dusters, both tied to a Western theme in RimWorld. As with Dusters, Cowboy hats provide good thermal insulation. Cowboy hats can be purchased, crafted, or stripped from Outlanders. Cowboy hats also provide a 10% bonus to social chat impact, due to their style.

Crafting

As a complicated garment, cowboy hats require complex clothing to be researched and can only be made at a hand-tailoring bench or an electric tailoring bench. A cowboy hat requires 25 of any textile and 30 units of work.

Conclusion & Comparison

Overall, cowboy hats can be quite important when it comes to survival in hotter climates as a cowboy hat alone adds more than half of the insulation from heat offered by a duster. The social chat impact can also prove to be useful for wardens as relationships with prisoners will be built quicker, reducing the time it takes to recruit them (but a bowler hat would provide a higher bonus to this). Tuques are only more viable in extreme cold climates, where temperatures can plummet below -30 Celsius.

Insulation Information

Cowboy hats offer a decent amount of insulation from heat (50%) and a small amount of insulation from cold (10%). The exact insulation in-game depends on the textile used and the quality of the crafted item. Assuming normal quality, a cowboy hat offers:
