MATERIALS Weathered cotton, shapeable brim, vent eyelets, removable leather chin strap
21 1⁄ 4 to 251⁄ 4 inches
With an uneven weathered appearance out of the box, this Outback hat from DPC Outdoor Design looks right at home on a backwoods trail. It also won’t leave you worrying about scuffing up or discoloring the finish if it gets dropped in the dirt or mud — that just adds character. This hat’s material feels slightly waxy to the touch and has no trouble shedding light rain, although heavier precipitation may eventually seep through the stitching. The 23⁄ 4- inch brim includes a flexible wire at the edge that can be easily shaped into a cowboy-style curve or a more subdued flat profile. A simple chin cord is cut from a strip of leather, and includes a wood bead to keep the hat in place if the wind picks up.
Weathered appearance gives it a unique look and eliminates the awkward break-in period of other fresh-looking new hats
Shapeable brim lets you contour the hat to your exact preference in seconds
Available in a large range of sizes
Black cotton/polyester sweatband isn’t soft or moisture-wicking.
Rigid crown can’t be crushed and packed away, so you’ll need to hang the hat outside your bag.
