Great hat!

My husband bought one of these kangaroo skin hats in Sydney when we visited Australia about nine years ago from the USA and absolutely loved it. Somehow it was lost in the years since and nothing else could take its place. Since he must wear hats all the time because of the Arizona sun (lots of cancers on his head and face), we recently decided to try to find a replacement. He was so excited to find this hat online, and now wears it every time he is outside. It is so soft and flexible, and really looks good on him too! He talked about upgrading the hatband recently but it's a bit pricey with the shipping charges to the USA. Maybe next year!

Boy What A Hat
Not a bad hat

After 3 weeks of continual wearing I have found my Jacaru Nomad hat a very good investment.
Weathering the equatorial sun in Malaysia with the extreme humidity and near to sun crushing days my hat has stood up to it all.
Wild 1 1/2 hour blustery rain storms has not put it out of shape neither did the 15 hour flight with the hat folded in half and flattened out.
I used to wear an Akubra with pride the only problem was my head got so hot that the hat had to come off but my new Jacaru it keeps me cool all day long.
The only disappointment is that the metal studs on the headband are rusting and are attempting to fall of leaving me with a sad looking hat.
So would I recommend to you the Jacaru Nomad, I certainly would.

I brought this hat for my son who is travelling, initially he thought it was to small but after reading the information supplied with the that it can stretch he now loves it and has been looking for this type of hat for some time an auzzie mate recommended this company. Excellent traveling hat, easy to put in a back pack.

Nice hat

Its a nice hat, well made.
Its lightweight for a leather hat. Because of this the brim has a tendency to vibrate a little in the wind etc.
