Named after the Australian Outback, these outdoorsman hats have pinchfront crowns and wide brims to shade your eyes. The crowns sometimes have eyelets or mesh for added ventilation. Some styles also come with chinstraps for security.
These hats are a great choice for people who hike or fish. They give the protection needed from the sun and have a more rugged outdoor appearance than a dress fedora. These hats come in a variety of materials. Wool outbacks are warmer for winter use while straw styles are available for the dog days of summer. The more traditional cloth outback hats are transitional and give just as much protection and comfort all year long.
