Trivia

  • The original name for this hat was "Traditional Drinking Hat". [1]
  • With the Mann-Conomy Update's release, an asset managing error occurred. This caused the Rimmed Raincatcher's model and texture to replace those of the Tippler's Tricorne. After noticing the error, Valve decided to add the Rimmed Raincatcher as a separate hat and it was added to the drop system, but not yet added to the game files. Due to this, any player that managed to find the Raincatcher from a hat drop, or crafting result, would have an "Unknown Item" displayed in one of the online backpack viewers. This was shortly resolved as part of the October 6, 2010 Patch, which restored the Tippler's Tricorne to its original model and texture and added the Rimmed Raincatcher as a separate item to the game files.
  • This hat is commonly known to build up and redirect rain water from the wearer's face, as the name suggests.
