Australian Made The Roo Leather Hat | Kakadu Traders Original

The Roo is a Kakadu Classic that has been constructed from waxed kangaroo leather which is known for its durability and ultralight weight. The softness of the leather means that the lowered pinched crown will slip comfortably on and the medium brim and UPF 50+ rated fabric means that you'll be protected in the sun. Its built-in chinstrap facility means you can add a little security if the wind picks up.

Fabric type: 100% Leather, Waxy Roo

Sizes:    Metric(cm)

 


Please be aware that hats made from thicker leathers usually run smaller and hats made from thinner leathers are generally considered full fitting.


Understanding the Roo

There are over 100 different species of kangaroo in Australia, none of which can be farmed. The larger herds consist 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 being ultra lightweight. As all kangaroos are from the wild, scarring on the leather is characteristic.
