  • Chin Strap or Stampede String?

    Chin straps, known in cattle country as stampede strings, ensure against loss of your hat in wind or brush. Most of the Akubras we offer have chin strap hooks set inside the crown. [Akubra Hats with Chin Strap Hooks]

    If you purchased an Akubra without Chin Strap Hooks or one of our other fine styles of hats, we recommend our Stampede String.

    If you have an Akubra not purchased from us, you will have to check to see if it has chin strap hooks inside the crown. The chin strap hooks are put on the Akubra hats especially for us, and many Akubra's available elsewhere do not have the hooks. Our Stampede String is a good alternative for most hats without chin strap hooks.
