Our loss is your opportunity. We received a shipment of Snowy River hats from Australia with unacceptable ornamental bands, where the bands have a decidedly wavy shape. The quality of the fur felt hat is first rate, just the band is not up to Akubra’s high standards. Each reject hat is unique, with varying degrees of waviness. We are offering these reject hats at a bargain price, cheap enough that you may purchase one of our hand braided leather hat bands to replace the faulty band.
The Snowy River is a pre-creased stockman’s hat from Akubra, a classic Australian outback hat. It has a pinched telescope crown and a brim with rolled sides with front and back turned down. This enduring outback style may be worn over the eyes or well back on the head in typical Australian fashion. The crown is 4 inches high. The brim is 3¼ inches wide, with a raw edge. The pure fur felt is Akubra’s Imperial Quality. The hat is fully lined and has a wavy bonded leather ornamental band (on these reject hats) and chin strap hooks set inside the crown for easy attachment of a chin strap. Reeded roan leather sweatband. UPF rating 50+. Made in Australia. Limited to stock on hand.
