Kakadu Traders Australia's Bush Ranger hat is crafted from genuine grain leather. It features a flat, 4 1/8" crown with eyelets, a 3 1/4" brim, and a 5 strand woven leather band.
Each leather hat Kakadu Traders Australia manufactures is unique. It's character is enhanced by the subtle variations and scratching that occurs naturally on genuine grain leather. The leather is specially treated to create a rich, opaque polish that will be smooth and comfortable for years to come.
My wife bought my first one 6 years ago and I had not been separated from it until it got lost on a hike. I immediately got myself a new one to replace it. I have added a lighter hat for the summer months, but there is nothing like this hat for sheer durability, wearability and looks.
For me in the environment of Vermont it is the perfect hat. Weather friendly, cold, wet, hot, dry, this hat takes it all in stride. On really hot days just soak it in a creek and put it on, instant bush style airconditioning, lol. Well worth the cost to get one if you spend time in the field!
