Wade Deep

The Alden Hat


Close to 100 years ago, legendary angler John Alden Knight changed how people fished for decades. He developed the Solunar Tables, a guide for anglers and hunters that uses the positions of the sun and moon to determine optimal times to hunt and fish. We think our hats will help you too.

The canvas and polyester construction is dark as night, making the orange cotton embroidery shine like the sun. As with all of our hats, patent pending Secure FlyPatch Technology is ‘lazer-welded’ to the bill; ensuring your flies aren’t going anywhere. This resilient silicone will hold as many flies as you can stick in it, for as long as you need.

The "size 28" details:

-6 panel trucker construction
-black canvas twill
-polyester mesh
-double plastic snap rear closure
-3D cotton embroidery on front
-Proprietary Hybrid-Silicone SFP application

If your hat fails you on or off the water due to construction or material failure - Send it in and we will send you a new hat.  We stand behind what we make.

Perfect fit!

I own a lot of hats but this hat literally has the best shape and fit for my head of any hat I own. And the fly dock is a useful kicker too. Love it!

Stephen Funk
A clever idea while using one’s head!

Great for that angler who just tied up some new flies, but aways has the the go-to bugs on his mind! Awesome idea and executed perfectly 🙌🏻

Style and functionality

Love this hat. So cool and convenient with the little fly patch! Keeps a few flies high and dry while you Wade deep!

Insane shipping

Product is great. Paid $22 for shipping to Canada and took over 22 days....not ideal.

Matt Underwood
Great product

I am a very minimalistic fly fisherman and this helps eliminate a box. I loaded up the slots, grabbed a roll of tippet and forceps and was on my way. I was skeptical of the durability of the patch. Not anymore!  Sturdy, durable, and I like the low profile of it. Hat fits perfectly and has gotten noticed. Thanks!
