Barmah Hat Squashy Kangaroo Hickory
The Kangaroo hats are ideal for travelling as they are made from one of the strongest leathers in the world, therefore the leather can be cut thinner giving you a lighter weight hat and they fold down smaller. Free calico bag.
One our most popular styles in the Barmah range, the Squash Kangaroo is made from extremely soft, pliable and lightweight kangaroo leather - the toughest leather in the world pound for pound and the reason it is used in motorcycle leathers. They are ideal for travelling as they are lightweight and they fold down into the free calico travel bag provided.
The hats come up on the small side and we encourage people to wear a hat as loose as they can possibly get away with without the hat falling off your head. To get a good fit, please measure the circumference of your head, one inch above your eyebrows, in a comfortable fit, which means not too loose and not too tight, as you would like the hat to feel on your head and then select a size. Pretty much always go for the size up if you fall in between sizes, so for example a 58cm head measurement, I would suggest a Large 59cm hat.
Made in Australia using Australian kangaroo leather. All kangaroo hides are obtained under the Australian Federal Government's Wildlife Protection Act
Marks and scratches on our leather hats are considered a natural feature as they are made with naturally scarred leather from free-roaming cattle or wild kangaroos.
Barmah leather hats combine the following unique features to make a great outdoor hat: - Fully packable - Super-light and strong - Water resistant - "
To get the most out of your Barmah hat, we recomend using our specially formulated "Barmah Hat Waterproofing Spray". As the name suggests, the spray helps to repel water away from the leather, therefore helping to keep you dry. The spray also works as a leather conditioner so will help keep the leather soft and supple. Never use a heat source to dry your leather products as this can lead to cracking and drying. Instead, allow time for natural air drying.
