The Drought Master Hat is crafted in a classic Australian style, with a medium brim and a pinched crown. Being made from wool felt, it is naturally water resistant. If you'd like to give the water and stain resistance a boost and keep your hat looking as good as new for longer, pick up a B.K. Smith Felt Hat Care Kit and treat your hat with protector spray as soon as you get it home.

This hat features a leather sweat band that will shrink with wear to conform to the shape of the wearer's head for a perfect fit. To allow for this process, establish your size as per your head measurement, then select the next size up (1cm larger). Initially, you may need to pack the band with plain folded tissues for a firm head fit. Once the band has shrunk to your perfect custom fit, you can remove them if you wish. Alternatively, you can purchase some Akubra Hat Fillers.

A great hat for a great price

By: 15 October 2023
I have abused two of another well known competitor brand, so I turned to a TC hat - on sale at Allington's. At full price, it is still priced affordably in comparison to competitors. I'm REALLY happy with my purchase. The hat is hardy, durable and maintaining its shape (despite sweat, being abused and worn while outdoors and working). It's comfortable; appropriately shading me from the harsh rays. I will definitely purchase a TC hat again in future because its quality and fit is comparable to other well known brands; however, the price is more affordable (especially for those of us who are less careful with their hat when working/using it on the land).

Great Hat
