Australian Hats ~ Canvas

Exceptional canvas hats that will stand the test of time are hard to find. Well, look no more!

The Cool As A Breeze line of outdoor hats is amazing. They are made of waterproof canvas and both the ladies and mens hats have a generous 3 inch wide brim. The crown of the hat is an open solar mesh which allows the nice cool breezes to flow through, keeping your head protected and cool at the same time.

The style is that of a classic Aussie bush hat ~ a combination of rugged, practical and attractive. Want to know the best part of these great outdoor hats? They Are Crushable! No kidding. Each brim is reinforced with a flexible wire that coils up when pushed down. Let go of the hat, or stop sitting on it, and it pops back to its original shape.

These hats are great for fishing or just walking the beach. Each hat is handmade by BC Hats in Byron Bay, Australia. This family company is dedicated to quality and service, and they consider each hat they make to be a work of art. Pretty neat!

What a great waterproof canvas hat! Done in a classic Australian bush style, this hat has a unique twist. The crown of the hat is made of a solar mesh, allowing air to flow freely through the top. The perfect hat choice when you're out fishing in the hot weather and want to keep the sun off your head and face.

This canvas hat sports a hand braided three plait leather band. The brim is a generous 3" wide.

There's a lot of great things about this hat! It's crushable. Really! There's a coiled wire spring in the brim. So if you sit on it in the boat, it will hang in there and still look good when you're having your picture taken of you and the 3' long fish you just caught. The nice looking cotton chin cord comes with it - so in theory, it won't blow off your head into the water. (Of course that is assuming you put the thing under your chin. Ah - the hat does not float - so this is a good idea!) It is handmade in Australia, by BC Hats - a company with an outstanding reputation.

How to measure your hat size.
