The boater from Dudley Dursley's school uniform resting on a bannister

A boater was a type of straw hat with a flat top and brim.[1]

The uniform of Smeltings Academy, a Muggle boys' public school attended by Dudley Dursley, included a boater.[2]

Man-Hat-On Milliners for Wizards, an American wizarding hat shop, advertised that they sold boaters in the 1920s.[3]
