  • Hemp

    Akubra's legendary quality is available in hemp straw hats. Industrial hemp is an outstanding fiber, useful in textiles, high strength cordage and papermaking. Hemp is one of the world's strongest fibers. The bast, which gives the plant its strength, grows between the outer bark and the woody interior of the stalk and are some of the longest in nature. Hemp requires no herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers to grow. The fibers are naturally resistant to mold and ultraviolet light and are extremely resistant to abrasion. Hemp straw hats are stronger than Panamas made of toquilla fiber, are more durable and will last longer.

  • Hat Sizing

    Heads come in all sizes, and in a surprising variety of shapes. Although fur felt hats are adaptable, and will usually conform to differences in shape with a little wearing, it is essential that the size be correct for the head.

    To determine your hat size, measure the circumference around your head, keeping the tape level and firm, across the temples and above the eyebrow ridges. Check the size chart given below. For in-between measurements use the next size up.

    Circumference of head where hat brim sits:

    Check the Fit
    When your hat arrives, check the fit before wearing to make sure you have ordered the correct size:

    1. The sweatband inside the hat should fit securely on the head without binding.

    2. For some in-between sizes, and for some head shapes, greater comfort may be attained by placing felt pads inside the sweatband. Felt pads are enclosed with Akubra hats.

    3. The top of the crown should not be so low that it touches the top of your head and prevents the hat from coming down far enough to seat properly. If it does, with a leather or cloth hat you may need a smaller size. With an Akubra fur felt hat the top can be adjusted. Check the information sheet supplied with the hat.

    If the hat does not fit, recheck your hat size, and exchange your hat for the correct size. Hats in unused condition with all tags can be returned within 90 days of purchase for exchange or full refund of product price.

  • Hat Care

    With reasonable care, hemp hats will last well. Pick the hat up by the brim, not by the crown or the peak.

    Hemp hats are designed for protection from the sun. Do not wear them in the rain, and do not store them near the rear window of a car or truck, where they would bake in the sun.

    When you put your hat down temporarily place it on its crown, so as not to distort the brim. Store the hat on a hat rack or supported at the sweat band in a hat box. Use a soft brush to remove dust.
