Kangaroo suede! There is a richness to the colour that you just don't get in other suede leathers. Completely packable and like most of our Roo hats the Southern Cross is light and strong. We added our own unique slash line to the side of the crown and set the air vents in the shape of, you guessed it, the Southern Cross constellation. The brim is held by a mono filament (really thick fishing line) and we completed the look by using our round braid for the hat band.
3 inch brim, 3 1/4 inch crown

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.
CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER HAT
Brush off surface dirt using a soft brush or wipe with a damp cloth and allow to air dry.
Ensure that the leather is not subjected to extreme heat.
On average, women should order one size smaller for unisex sized garments (if you size to a 3XL in women's, order a XXL for unisex).

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD
Kakadu hats - or Mates as we often call them - come in all shapes and sizes so you're sure to find a Mate that suits you.
But first things first, lets determine your correct size. Remember you want comfortably firm
Wrap a tape measure or a piece of string (if you use string, you'll need a ruler as well) around your head so that it is above your eyebrows and a 1cm / half and inch above your ears. No need to pull too tight - remember you want your hat to be comfy!
Follow the size guide below to help determine your size. There are some slight variations in size depending on the fabric used for the hat - thicker materials mean the hat fit will be a bit tighter and thin fabrics a bit touch looser
