Out in the bush, you need a hat as tough as your days work. The Darwin Hat is made from Kangaroo which is an ultralight and durable leather that is perfect for warmer climates, especially since it is rated with a Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+. The lowered pinched crown made from the Grain Roo leather means it is super comfy and the medium brim will keep the sun out of your eyes.
Fabric type: 100% leather, Grain Roo
Please be aware that hats made from thicker leathers usually run smaller and hats made from thinner leathers are generally considered full fitting.
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.
