    About the brand

    Akubra is an Australian hat manufacturer. The company is associated with bush hats made of rabbit fur felt with wide brims that are worn in rural Australia.

    In 1874 Benjamin Dunkerley arrived in Tasmania from England and decided to start a hat making business in Hobart. His skills as a hatter were backed by his ability to invent machinery, and soon after his arrival he had developed a mechanical method of removing the hair tip from rabbit fur so the under-fur could be used in felt hat making. Previously this task had to be done by hand.

    By 2015 Akubra has produced two million hats for the military.

    Akubra Hats are still proudly Australian made in Kempsey.

    Nice Hat

    Bought this for Hubby for an Anniversary gift, the loves it. It isn't exactly what he thought it was going to be, but has adjusted and loves it. He has many different hats, some Akubra, Some not, but he is a Hat Man. So for him to really like a hat, is really a tough chore, and he likes this hat. It fits well, and looks good too. He thought it would be more dipped in the back more like a Snowy River Hat looks but he decided he likes it and he can steam it to the shape he wants.
    So glad you all had the color he has been wanting for he has been searching for the Sand color for awhile now.
    I am sure this hat will be one of the few he wears all the time.

    Like it a lot

    I like this hat a lot. I haven't really abused it yet, it almost seems to nice for that, so I don't know how "packable" it really is. But it is very high quality, fits and looks great. I have other high-end Akubra hats and this one is just as nice, at a lower price.

    Great Product - Quick Delivery

    I saw this style hat in our local outdoors store and wanted to purchase one to take away on our overseas holiday. Unfortunately the display hat was the only one in stock and not my size last. Our friendly retailer made some calls for me including to the Akubra factory, but it was going to be several weeks before more became available. i then got in touch with you guys and ordered one and then went on our holiday. Some weeks later the hat arrived. Beautiful styling, very light and, for the traveller, it is crushable and returns to its original shape easily. I am totally sold on my Traveller and look forward to many holidays and long service from my hat. This is my forever hat now. Great job to the team at Aus Gear. Wonderful Service . Thank you J M

    Yes, Great hat now.

    I bought this to replace my much loved and venerable Akubra cattleman's hat - purchased in Sydney many years ago. I managed to lose it somewhere. I chose a different style just in case my old hat turned up. The hat - of course - is peerless quality, with a different brim style from what I'm used to. The price is great - much cheaper than I could get locally in the UK. The service from Australian Gear was fantastic. The order was processed promptly and a tracking number provided. I checked and saw the hat was in Brisbane. A few days later I got a card to say that I had a package at the post office. To my amazement it was my hat. It had raced across the world! Can't recommend this store too highly.

    Best Hat I own. And I got a few.

    I recently acquired the Akubra. What a great hat. I have other fur felts but nothing like this one. The quality is outstanding. I spent a little time learning how to "bash" it. I've changed it a few times now. I made a custom leather hat band recently for it. It keeps the sun off my face and back of the neck. I use it when I have to be out in the hot Georgian sun. It also does quite well in the rain. I'm planning to take it out fishing soon. This hat is made of bunny fur and I have a feeling that my collection of Akubras will start growing like bunnies. Great hat, you won't regret it. Make sure to measure your head correctly. Don't pull the tape too tight to ensure a perfect fit.
