The Akubra Balmoral hat is based on the Classic Akubra Cattleman style using a close weave hemp braid to allow a little airflow in summer whilst still proving some shade from the sun. The hemp is spun and hardened with a resin to maintain it's stylish shape, with a dipped brim for maximum sun protection. The 70 mm brim has a bound edge. This hat has been Akubra's best selling straw hat for many years with it's traditional style, and has a stylish leather hatband with an Akubra badge. Please Note the Size 62 has a cloth inner hatband as opposed to the classic leather inside the other sizes.

Over the years Akubra has maintained its ability to be in vogue. Our hats have become a vital part of Australia’s identity - It's worn by soldiers, Olympians, politicians, personalities and of course loyal, everyday countrymen and women. Akubra produces a wide selection of fur-felt and straw hat styles to suit all people and all occasions, from Western and Country shapes through to casual and formal fashion hats.

Akubra currently manufactures more than 100 individual styles of hats in a diverse range of popular colours. This us to select and stock hats appropriate to the preferences of our customers. There is a style to suit every person and all styles can be worn by both men and women. 

Fitting your Akubra
Heads come in all shapes and sizes, so for an enduring fit with your new Akubra the following points should be considered:

  • The sheepskin inner band of the hat may shrink slightly with use. Do not expect a tight fitting hat to ‘loosen up.' In time, the hat will conform to your head shape. Initially, a slightly loose fitting hat can be adjusted using folded tissue placed behind the inner band, and then removed as the hat conforms. The leather sweatband will begin to mould to your head shape. When trying a hat on, you will occasionally find one size too small and the next too big. We suggest that you purchase the larger one and insert a hat pads or tissue paper inside the leather sweatband to help the hat fit more snugly.
  • Akubra hats are sized and ordered by centimeter circumference of the wearer’s head. The head is measured using a measuring tape, wrapped across the bare forehead and just above the ears. The measurement is rounded up to the next largest full cm (E.G. 57½cm head measurement is ordered as a 58cm hat).
  • Do not squeeze the front of your hat when putting it on your head as this in time will cause a sharp point which will be the first place the hat will wear prematurely. Tugging the brim to ensure the fit can spoil the brim if this is done constantly. When not being worn rest the hat upside down on the crown or hang it on a hat peg.
  • To properly fit a hat, clear all hair away from the forehead and place the front of the hat (ribbon bow and size to the back) on the head and then by placing the palm of your hand on the back of the crown, push the hat down.
