The Snowy River Hat
Styled after the original movie “The Man from Snowy River” staring the legendary Kirk Douglas, this enduring design is destined to be a classic. This easy outback style has a brim which is rolled at the sides, with the front and back turned down, and can be worn low over the eyes, oozing smouldering charm, or pushed to the back of the head, in true ranch style.
As with all Akubra hats, the Snowy River is hand-crafted in Australia and takes six weeks to make, using traditional, old-school processes which have changed little in 140 years. Made from 100% rabbit felt fur, all Akubra hats are water resistant and offer the ultimate in sun protection.
The “Snowy” is unlined, as it is considered to be a “work hat”, but has a supple leather inner sweatband. The wide and intricately plaited leather hat-band, has brass fastenings bearing the iconic Akubra name. Great for cowgirls and boys alike, ‘well, howdy, pardner!’.
