Snowy River Hat - Reviews

The Snowy River is a pre-creased stockman's hat from Akubra, a classic Australian outback hat. It has a pinched telescope crown and a brim with rolled sides with front and back turned down. This enduring outback style may be worn over the eyes or well back on the head in typical Australian… more

I must like this hat, and/or David Morgan. This is the third Snowy River hat I've purchased from this company. Two are in use, the first one got "all bent out of shape" during a fire - it just needs to be cleaned and blocked, then I'll be wearing it again.

Bought as a gift for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it. He already had his grandfathers Akubra hat, so getting him another definitely meant wonders!

Comments:

I have wore a Snowy River hat for the past 14 years. This is my 5th Snowy River Hat. I have won 17 World Championships and 32 regional Knife throws with this hat. People are constantly trying to buy my hat as moment of the World Championship Knife competitions. I have given 4 to whom i thought were worthy people most have them hanging on their wall with my signature on them. I have just recently bought my 5th for the 2015 throwing season hopefully i can hang on to this one. This is absolutely the best hat i have ever wore.

This is the first Akubra out of the five I have that needs resteaming to lift the crown so it does not rest on the top of my head. Then the size will be correct.

This is the first hat to truly fit me. It is sized perfect with the the two inserts that come with the hat. Also, I bought the "Hat Jack" to work with some hats I've had for several years and it is giving them a better fit. The shipping arrived on time and packing was professional done. Couldn't have asked for more.

Manily use the product for Western attire mostly casual night out or Church. I like the looks and feel of the hat - not to bulky as some western type hats seem to be. I marked gift above - but the gift was to myself.

Comments:

I've always liked the Snowy River model and when the Gray color became available, I juped at the chance to buy one. Previously, I have very liked my Akubra Hats (Boomerang). This hat is the same: a good-looking, stylish western hat, very durable and offered for a reasonable price.

I bought this hat for my wife, she zips all over town in her electric wheelchair and needed something to keep the sun off. I got it with the crocodile band. She loves the hat and it gets lots of comments.

Comments:

When I first opened the box, I told myself I was sending this one back. I have a Lightning Ridge and a Lawson and I wanted to add the Snowy River to my collection. I'm also a big fan of the movie and wanted something similar. But the Snowy River's brim was turned up much too high on the sides for my liking. It didn't look at all like the one in the movie (to me) and was too much of a cowboy style for my taste. Also, I had asked for a long oval for the first time based on the fit of my previous two purchases and the hat felt huge as I tried it on. I waited a day or two and finally decided that I had watched enough videos that I was going to try and alter the brim fairly drastically (at least it seemed that way to me). If Akubras are meant to be worn, I was going to give this hat a real workout. So I wet the hat and steamed it and lowered the brim significantly on the sides. It still turns up, but is much more gradual and is barely above the hat band if you look at it from the side profile. I also had to use the felt bands to make the hat fit better. But by jumping in and giving it a go, I got the hat exactly as I wanted and I've received a lot of compliments on it. While I can see the better quality of the Heritage collection hats, I can tell that the Snowy River is probably going to be my "go to" hat for most occasions with the Lightning Ridge and Lawson used to change things up a bit. So in essence, it's gone from worst to first! If anything, I've learned to not be afraid to take the hat and shape it to my wishes. This has caused me to do some slight modifications on my Lightning Ridge (a deeper pinch) and the Lawson (a more turned down brim). My dad recently had a skin cancer removed on his forehead and so I just ordered an Overlander for him because he wanted the sand color. I can't tell you how satisfied I've been with my Akubra hats and have worn them in the heat of the summer. Can't wait for fall to get here when I know the hats will wear even better!

Comments:

I purchased my Snowy River in 1984 from a small store in Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia. I have worn this hat in all weather conditions and for all summer outdoor activities. I'ts been blown off my head and recovered from creeks, tumbleweed piles, and snow drifts. It's the best hat I've ever owned. I am about to send it off to David Morgan for cleaning and restoring. I expect to get another 30 years' worth of service out of this hat. I absolutely recommend it to anyone who desires a fine, premium felt hat.
