The Bourke Breeze Soaka Hat is all about balance, just like a perfectly cooked snag. It rocks a solid front crown that means business, while the ventilating mesh at the back lets the breeze flow through like a gentle whisper from the eucalyptus trees. We call it "business in the front, the party out the back" because hey, even your head deserves a good time!

When it comes to tackling the brutal Australian summer, the Bourke Breeze is a true hero. Made with water-resistant Soaka micro-suede, this hat can handle the toughest conditions Mother Nature throws its way. The fabric’s evaporative cooling abilities thanks to our micro-suede fabric. When the going gets hot, simply wet the fabric, and let the magic happen. As the hot air passes through the wet Soaka material, moisture evaporates, creating a refreshing cool breeze around your head. It's like having your own personal oasis in the arid Aussie desert.

Now, let's talk shapes, mate. The Bourke Breeze features a classic block design that's as timeless as anything. Its 9 cm brim offers ample shade to protect your face from the blazing sun, while the 3-strand hand-braided hatband adds that touch of rustic Aussie elegance. And for our bald fellas out there, rejoice! The half mesh design keeps the front protected while allowing the cool breeze to caress the back of your head. It's a win-win, if you ask us!

And here's a bonus: this hat is so lightweight, you'll forget you're even wearing it! Weighing less than 150gm/5oz, it's like having a wispy kangaroo whispering sweet nothings in your ear.

So, whether you're camping in the red desert, hiking through lush rainforests, or simply kicking back at a beachside barbie, the Bourke Breeze Soaka Hat is your ultimate warm-weather companion. Secure it with the built-in chinstrap, put it on firmly and let your adventurous spirit soar. When form meets function like in this little beauty, you'll be ready for anything the Australian wilderness throws your way!

All hats in our Soaka micro-suede range come with a built-in chinstrap. They are ultra-lightweight - they weigh less than 150gm / 5oz.

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!

fair-dinkum, bloody hot day.

Great hats

I bought a soaka hat about 12 years ago. Now time to upgrade as the old 1 is looking a bit battered. With a wider brim and ventilation this is brilliant
