This is a hat that'll have you hopping with joy—the Roo Leather Hat. Lighter than a kangaroo's leap and tougher than a croc's bite, this hat is your ultimate companion for conquering the wild. Get ready to embrace the outback spirit with every step you take.

Crafted from waxed kangaroo leather, the Roo is a true Kakadu Classic. Its ultra lightweight nature makes it feel as light as a feather on your head, allowing you to move with agility and grace. But don't let its lightweight fool you—this hat is built to withstand the wildest of bush, just like explorers of yore.

The Roo's lowered pinched crown slips on with ease, like a joey in a mother’s pouch. Its medium brim, coupled with a sun-shielding UPF 50+ rated fabric, ensures you're well-protected from the scorching Aussie sun. And when the wind picks up and starts playing silly buggers, the built-in chinstrap facility keeps your hat secure, so you won't have to chase it across the plains.

Now, let's talk about quality. The Roo Leather Hat is a top-notch, authentic Australian bush hat. It's proudly made right here in the land Down Under, guaranteeing you the finest craftsmanship and attention to detail. The lowlander block design strikes the perfect balance between style and functionality, making you look as suave as Banjo on the 10 dollar note. And we can't forget the iconic touches—the Roo features Kakadu's signature round hatband, a symbol of Aussie heritage that'll have you feeling like you just drove the Nullarbor!

Material & Care

Waxy kangaroo leather

Premium kangaroo leather enhanced with a wax finish for enhanced texture and water resistance

  • Do not wash or dry clean – brush off surface dirt with a soft brush and/or wipe clean with a damp rag. 
  • Periodically apply a leather wax to maintain water resistance and protect the finish.
  • To avoid oil transfer, keep away from light-colored fabrics, especially in warm conditions.
  • Avoid leaving leather goods in a hot car where the high temperatures may affect the quality and finish of the leather.
  • A good rule of thumb is - if it's too hot to touch, then it's too hot for your hat!

Love this roo hat!

My order for this hat was so promptly accepted and then shipped out in a fitting solid box on the same day, that was incredible. Love the softness and thinness of the leather, and the signature round hatband makes it look truly distinct and unique from other brands' kangaroo leather hats with hand-braided bands. The hat is so soft that it is foldable, and with the chip strap installed, it can be used as a tie band for carrying it around!

Style and Comfort

The Roo has to be the most comfortable cover I've ever had on my head, light and water resistant a plus. I get compliments constantly while wearing it
