The BOOMER HAT is made from Kangaroo leather which means it is ultralight, durable and has an UPF 50+ so it will protect you when the sun is out. It has a medium brim and a lower pinched crown. The leather has been "snuffed" or lightly brushed.
Please be aware that hats made from thicker leathers usually run smaller and hats made from thinner leathers are generally considered full fitting.
Fullgrain Kangaroo Leather
Understanding the Roo
There are over 100 different species of kangaroo in Australia, none of which can be farmed, and with the larger herds consisting predominantly of the Reds and Greys. The government permits only licensed hunters under strict supervision to cull these herds and only in overpopulated areas. Kangaroo leather is renowned for its tensile strength and ultra lightweight. As all kangaroos are from the wild, scarring on the leather is characteristic.
Brush off surface dirt using a soft brush or wipe with a damp cloth and allow to air dry.
Occasionally rub in a quality leather dressing which will keep the leather pliable.
Ensure that the leather is not subjected to extreme heat.
