Hold on to your hat! Chin straps, known in
cattle country as stampede strings, ensure against loss of your hat in
wind or brush. Our Stampede String has cotter pins which can be slipped between the sweatband and body of hats without chin strap hooks, such as the Akubra hats listed below and our Panamas. Akubra's own Breakaway Chin Strap works with the Akubra hats without chin strap hooks.
