The Aussie Slouch Hat, one side turned up against the crown, has gained worldwide recognition. Akubra has made these hats for the Australian Army since the early 1900's. Proven in the toughest of desert and jungle conditions by Australia's fighting men, the Slouch Hat enjoys an unequaled… more

Comments:

This is a follow up to my first super positive review on 17 September 2013. I purchased my Aussie military slouch hat from David Morgan in 2013. I am from Arizona and New York, but I was working then in Africa. Now I am working in Afghanistan. I use the Aussie military slouch hat everyday for work. Akubra makes the best hats - style, comfort, durable, and practical. It is the best and real deal! My Akubra slouch hat has been in heavy African monsoon rains, Arizona desert dust, Afghanistan hostilities, and even under heavy snow in upstate New York. I also used my Aussie slouch hat in my adventure travels, including exotic Ethiopia, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Benin, Europe, Peru, and to the ends of the earth..... And you know what? The Akubra slouch hat still looks new. I brush the hat at least weekly for care - but that is the only care I perform on the awesome hat. The slouch hat really serves the purpose to protect me from the sun, rain, desert dust, snow, and the elements. Another aspect - this is perhaps the most dashing adventurous hat in the world. I receive compliments almost every day for its adventurous look. People ask me where I obtain such an amazing "chapeau". I refer them to David Morgan website, of course. I also own an authentic Indiana Jones fedora, but I receive 10 times more compliments on my Aussie slouch hat than on my Indy authentic hat. I recommend the Aussie military slouch hat to everybody, whether you are engaged in adventure travel or just a trip to the mall!

Comments:

Ordered the Australian Slouch as a back up, you never know what corporate guru at Akubra may come up a plan to discontinue the slouch hat. Purchased the slouch hat that I wear nearly everyday pre internet. Found an add for David Morgan in the back of an outdoor or hunting magazine if I recall correctly. Still have the 1994 catalogue that they sent to me as well as the slouch.

Comments:

This my third hat like this. I wore two of them out while living in the jungle. They protect your face. You can dip them in water to cool your head. They can be reshaped anytime. They can be sat on, reshaped and worn with no problem. This hat serves a purpose and the more it is worn the better it looks serving that purpose.

Got this hat from David Morgan over 40 yrs ago. Though I have lots of hats, this my #1 outdoorsman hat for the western hills, mountains and deserts. I added a braided kangaroo "stampede string" to hold it on in high winds and on fast horses. My favorite!

Great use for Golfing and Outings. And proud to know that it was once exactly the same kind use by the Australian Army. Would also be excellent if the very same having differing choice of colours.

Comments:

I love this hat. I also have a Lawson which I love almost more than words but I wanted a hat that was meant for more rugged abuse so that I could use my Lawson for slightly more formal wear. This hat is a little bigger than the Lawson given that they are the same size but with some felt in the sweat band and some good breaking in, I have no doubt it will conform perfectly to my head.
