Material & Care


Soaka hats are made from specially made poly-suede which is a durable synthetic fiber known for its resilience and ease of care. It has been constructed to be highly durable, quick-drying, and resistant to shrinking and stretching, making it ideal for hats

  • Machine washable in cold/warm water with a mild detergent for washing; do not tumble dry.
  • Hang dry or lay flat in the shade. If necessary, use a hairdryer to remove creases caused by squashing or incorrect storage.
  • Avoid leaving your hat in a hot car.
  • A good rule of thumb is - if it's too hot to touch, then it's too hot for your hat!

Kakadu broad brim

Good hat for around the yard.
When windy the brim is a bit light and gets pushed up a bit but otherwise great


Exquisite shape and great materials! Tried to be accurate on sizing, per your chart, but the large is a tad tight. My error. Have the drover's coat and they look perfect together.

Practicality and Value

These hats are great. Nice wide brim gives good protection while the mesh allows for ventilation. It works. My wife has worn her soaka breeze for 10 years. I'm thin on top so need a good hat, so I bought two.

Very Pleased

Quick delivery, great hat. Birthday present for son, he loved it.
