Adventurer Hat (Open Crown) - Reviews

The Adventurer is an Akubra in the same general dimensional shape, style and color as the fedora worn by Indiana Jones in the "Indiana Jones" movies. Embark on your own adventure by bashing this open crown hat into the Indy shape shown here, or to another crease of your own choice. The open crown… more

Comments:

This is a beautiful hat, like all Akubra hats (this is my third, including a Coober Pedy, and, a Bushman). SO why the three stars? Well I have skin problems, and, the dye in the sweatband gives me a rash, unlike all the others. Otherwise, wearing this always gets admiring looks, as well as good comments. Would I recommend it to others? Very much, but, if you get a rash on your forehead, you can try what I did, I wiped the sweatband with alcohol, be sure to use a cloth, or paper towel to protect the liner from dye stains. This seems to have solved my problem. Buy one and wear it with pride!!

The Adventurer Hat (Open Crown) by Akubra is a beautiful hat, I receive positive comments from coworkers and friends and the quality is top notch, it reminds me of the fedoras that my father wore. I ordered the Custom Hat Service, Indy Bash and I would recommend this service.

The Adventurer is unique to DM and I have two, in black and brown - and lost a third. Wish they made it in other colors, 'cos I would have those too! (My fourth hat is an Akubra Pilbara from DM).

I reside in a Western Style (cowboy hats) community. Although I own several "Bespoke Custom" western cowboy hats, I enjoy going against the norm on occasion. Wherever I go with this hat on I receive many compliments and inquiries as to where this hat came from...I have referred many men to your website. Not everyone can get away with wearing this style!

Out of my several fedora hats, this hat is my favorite. I had no problem bashing it according to the written and video instructions with a steam kettle. I highly recommend this quality, great looking hat!

This is my "go to " hat for everyday. I have not caught on with wearing a ball cap. I prefer a hat. This is a great hat for work or dress. Mine now has a sweat stain and is a little dirty. Just brush it off and good as new. This is the second one I have purchased . Cannot beat them. I wear it riding my mule, camping , hunting or just around. Great hat for any activity or weather.

I've been in love with fedoras since seeing the first Indiana Jones movie. While Dr. Jones was a big influence, I like the look of the fedora for me. I have also purchased two other Akubras and find them excellent quality and a great price. I bashed all my hats and found it very easy to customize my own style. But I also have a professional steamer which makes it much easier.

Comments:

So I found this hat searching online for an Indiana Jones hat. I found countless examples, but soon figured out that a standard fedora in the right colour just wouldn't do, having read about how the shape was unique to make the hat a true 'character' in the film and evoke a certain sense of personality. Now I've never been a hat-person, so the price for a costume item seemed steep at first...but then the more I read, the more I realised that this hat would be so much more than a bit of dress-up. I measured my head, ordered, and waited. When I saw the box on my doorstep I got really happy, and when I opened it up and examined the hat I got even happier. I took Morgan's advice and got it open-crown, and I did watch the video- and yes, it really is that easy, and I say that having never bashed a hat before ever in my life. The hat took a pretty good shape without steam, but then i used some steam to fine-tune it a bit and I've gone back for a second round of steam to get it just a little better. I used a saucepan with the lid on but turned so the pouring-part is open, so any stream of steam will do. It looks GREAT and I'm proud of it. Now I did check the 'feels half size too big' selection, but this is no complaint- I've got rather short hair at the moment, plus I'm in my mid-40s and I know that my head is growing as mens' heads tend to do toward this age range. Not a worry at all; I slipped in the supplied pads and this not only made the fit right (both for size and for head-shape), but helped with the look of the crown-width too. So I mentioned that I've never been into hats. This one seems to be changing that- I do love it, and after only one week of owning it it has already become a treasured item. I predict that it will be a comfortable companion for many years to come. Overall quality is great, appearance is everything I expected and more, comfort is top-notch. I only have one small niggle, and that is that the silk liner wasn't glued-in very well and started…

A stylish and unusual hat with its very high crown and wide brim. I get lots of compliments about it. And it is great in the rain, as advertised.

Comments:

This hat fit perfectly right out of the box. It was styled with a bash that was exactly what I had asked for. The fit was right on the money. I wear this outside in rain and wind and it stands up to the job. I hide horses in all weather all year around and this hat works great for me. It is not too tight yet it stays on my head even in high wind. Thank you to the crew at David Morgan for everything.

I'm a real life archaeologist who wears hats in the field all the time. Have owned various fedoras over the years and have put them to real use. This one looks and feels excellent, and performs really well as a work hat. I am very satisfied with the look and feel of this new hat.

Comments:

This hat is a very outback Australian looking hat but very stylish nonetheless. I hoped that this hat would blend well with a suit but the brim is slightly overwhelming compared to hats such as the Sydney or Stylemaster, and requires extremely broad shoulders in the suit jacket for a perfect match. Under the harsh summer sun, wearing this hat with a long sleeve collared shirt looks extremely smart while also protecting yourself from sunburn. The Adventurer hat is one of the finest hats by Akubra
