A prevailing Sou'wester wind bears rain in the seas around Britain. A fishing net would always be brought up in the lee of the wind so that a fisherman facing the net would have his back to the wind and without a hat the rain would be driven down the fisherman's neck. And so the Sou'wester hat came to get its name and its main feature - the extended neck guard.
