About Us

by River Sombrero
A curiously shaped rock perches precariously above the stunning San Juan River. Legend has it the rock was left by an ancient civilization of river runners who knew how to stay cool on the river. That rock called Mexican Hat has been hiding in plain sight for all to see – the River Sombrero! River Sombrero's been keeping you cool on the river since 2008. Our Sombreros are made in the U.S., and our frame mount kits are made in Salida CO. Rediscover the wisdom of the ancients, and Stay Cool on the River!

River Sombrero is located in Salida, CO where we use our River Sombreros with our families and friends on the Arkansas River and on desert trips like the San Juan, Green, and Chama rivers. Boy does that shade feel great!
