Hold on to your hat! Chin straps, known in
cattle country as stampede strings, ensure against loss of your hat in
wind or brush.
Akubra has discontinued manufacturing hats with chin strap hooks (apart from the Aussie Slouch). The hats listed below either have no chin strap hooks or mixed stock. Note that our Stampede String and Akubra's own Breakaway Chin Strap are easily attached to Akubras with and without chin strap hooks such as the Akubra hats listed below, and to our Panamas.
