Leather brimmed hats are rugged and durable, able to stand the most severe conditions in both hot and cold climates. These hats typically have an Australian or Outback crown. They offer as much style as they do protection from the environment with a wide variety of textures and trim options. Their wide brims are usually shapeable due to a hidden wire in the brim. Leather foldaway hat designs omit the wire allowing the hat to be easily folded away for storage.
