    would “water proofing” the hat kill the breathability ?

    No, a spray that causes water to bead, run off will enhance breathability, once a fabric is soaked, it isn't going to breath at all.

    I hope Nikwax works, just ordered a can of spray on for some rain gear.

    Already have that. Not the best for apparel. Great for shoes.

    If it’s leather shoes, mink oil. (Ok it’s not a spray but it works.)

    Nikwax spray (not the wash-in) for clothing and mink oil for shoes. Before using either product the items must be thoroughly, properly cleaned.

    Also make sure after you have sprayed the clothing when you wash them again use detergent made for waterproof fabric and use the gentle cycle. Then dry on low heat. Regular detergent leaves a residue which will hinder the repellency of the spray.
