Kanga Hat in Ash
The Kanga Hat is crafted from waxed kangaroo leather which is known for its durability and ultralight weight. The supple handle of the leather means that the lowered pinched crown will slip comfortably on, the medium binded brim and UPF 50+ rated fabric means that you'll be protected in the sun and the built-in chinstrap facility means you can add a little security if the wind picks up.
Please be aware that hats made from thicker leathers usually run smaller and hats made from thinner leathers are generally considered full fitting.
Fabric type: Waxy Roo
Understanding the Roo
There are over 100 different species of kangaroo in Australia, none of which can be farmed, and with the larger herds consisting predominantly of the Reds and Greys. The government permits only licensed hunters under strict supervision to cull these herds and only in overpopulated areas. Kangaroo leather is renowned for its tensile strength and ultra-lightweight. As all kangaroos are from the wild, scarring on the leather is characteristic.
