Head Wear Size Chart - Head Circumference


When trying to find the right size hat you will occasionally find one size too small and the next too big. Akubra recommends that you purchase the larger one and insert a liner inside the leather sweatband to help the hat fit more snugly. A hat that feels too tight will never be comfortable. When the hat is new it may feel a little stiff. However, with wear the leather hatband will begin to mold to your head shape.

Caring for Your Akubra

  • Do not leave your hat in the sun. The hat itself will not shrink, however the inside band will and it is difficult to stretch back.
  • Rest your hat on it's crown, or hang it from a hat peg. Resting the hat on it's brim will cause the brim to distort.
  • Giving your hat a brush in a counter-clockwise direction every once in a while will help return the fur to it's original direction.
  • If the brim gets out of shape simply place it over steam (making sure not to get the inside band wet) until the area is moist. Use your fingertips to reshape the brim and any crown marks should disappear.

About Akubra Hats

All Akubra hats are wholly made in Australia at their headquarters in Kempsey, New South Wales. Akubra hand crafts their hats, ensuring complete control of the production process. This along with the use of the best fur felt available, allows them to achieve the highest quality standards in the industry. The superior rabbit fur felt used by Akubra reinforces its commitment to producing not only an exceptional looking hat, but one of the most durable.

Each hat passes through at least 70 sets of hands and more than 100 individual processes. Why take this care, and why use fur felt? Akubra does it for strength and durability. Fur felt is the strongest natural fabric produced, as the individual fibres are tightly interlocked in production to form a dense, tough matrix. It takes anywhere between 10 to 14 rabbit skins to make each hat.

Practical features including wider brims for sun and rain protection along with reeded, leather sweatbands, made of the finest roan sheepskin, enusres a comfort and security only experienced when wearing an Akubra.

Akubra hats carry a UPF rating of 50+, the highest classification achievable. This plus the wide brims provide excellent protection from the sun for those who are outdoors, either at work or a leisure.

Note: Colors of the products my vary slightly from the photos due to differences in computer monitor displays, dye lot variations, effects of lighting, etc.
