Cowboy Gear

Wide Brim Cowboy Hat, !!!!$15.00!!!!

The deep crown helped the cowboys head keep cool. The cowboy hat could fan a fire out, signal another cowboy if he or she was in danger, and could scoop up water from a stream or a lake for water.

A Vest!!!!!$18.00!!!!!

The cowboys wore a vest instead of a coat because a coat got in their way. They wore a vest over their shirt. They would only wear a coat if it was bitterly cold. The Vest had pockets to hold a watch, tobacco, and a few coins. Its like this but not wool. BELOW

Cowboy boots were high, tapered heels to keep the cowboys boots from slipping out from the stirupps. Their tapered toes prevented the cowboys foot from catching in a stirupp if he or she fell
