These outdoors man hats have pinched, sometimes creased, crowns. Their wide brims are designed to shielding the eyes from the blinding rays of the Australian Outback sun that it is named after. Sometimes eyelets or mesh are added to the crowns of these hats for added ventilation and comfort. Others come equip with chinstraps for security.
An excellent choice for people who hike or fish, they provide sun protection with more of an outdoor appearance than a dress fedora. Perfect for pairing with khakis and a tackle vest. These hats come in a variety of fabrics. Wool outbacks are warmer for winter use while straw styles add comfort through the dog days of summer. More classic cloth outback hats are transitional and give just as much protection and comfort all year long.
