The Uluroo is made from Kangaroo leather which means is ultralight, durable and it has an UPF 50+ so it will protect you even at the height of summer. It has a medium brim and a lowered pinched crown.
Fabric type: Fullgrain Roo
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, 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.
