Kinsey & Friends Take Nature Boy Hats for a Spin


Nature Boy Hat Co. Founding Story

Friends of Rheos - Nature Boy Hats Founded in Atlanta, our neighbors at Nature Boy Company wanted to make comfortable, sustainable clothing that are both inspired by the outdoors and inspire adventurers to get outdoors.

The Nature Boy name was inspired by one of the founder’s (Ben Holton) friends from growing up. His family had spent many weekends camping and hiking in Georgia State Parks, like Ft. Mountain & Indian Springs. One day, his friend heard they were headed back to the mountains and said "you're the nature boy.” Ben recalls that many of his most fun & happiest memories were spent camping with his family and playing outside with his best buddies. After getting sucked in day-to-day drudgery for too long, he recently fell back in love with being outside & appreciating the beautiful state he grew up in. We encourage you to do the same whether you're from Georgia or Nevada. Join him and awaken your inner Nature Boy or Girl!

Not only do these guys make great gear they’re also great guys, donating a portion of their profits to the GA Conservancy who work hard to preserve Georgia’s natural beauty. As Georgia locals, that’s definitely something we can get behind.
