The ROO HAT is a Kakadu Classic that has been constructed from waxed kangaroo leather which is known for its durability and ultralight weight. The softness of the leather means that the lowered pinched crown will slip comfortably on, the medium brim and UPF 50+ rating means that you'll be protected in the sun and the built-in chinstrap facility means you can add a little security if the wind picks up.

Genuine 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.
