Determining Your Hat Size
Heads come in all sizes, and in a surprising variety of
shapes. Although fur felt hats, such as the Akubras we carry, are adaptable, and will usually
conform to differences in shape with a little wearing, it is essential that the size be correct
for the head.
To determine your hat size, measure your head using a flexible tape measure. If you do not
have a tape measure, print our hat tape (on the following page) at full size and assemble.
Our hat tape is about the width of the Akubra hat sweatbands.
Measure the circumference around your head, keeping the tape level and firm, across the
temples and above the eyebrow ridges. Check your measurement, as one size can make
a difference in the fit.
Check the size chart given below. For in-between measurements use the next size up. For
hats offered in S-M-L increments, determine your hat size first, then check to see which
increment covers your hat size, as this often varies from one manufacturer to another. For
the lightweight canvas hats for hot weather use you may prefer a hat a little larger than
your normal size.

Check the Fit
When your hat arrives, check the fit before wearing to make sure you have ordered the correct size:
1. The sweatband inside the hat should fit securely on the head without binding.
2. For some in-between sizes, and for some head shapes, greater comfort may be attained by placing felt
pads inside the sweatband. Felt pads are enclosed with Akubra, and Panama hats.
3. The top of the crown should not be so low that it touches the top of your head and prevents the hat from
coming down far enough to seat properly. If it does, with a leather or cloth hat you may need a smaller size.
With an Akubra fur felt hat the top can be adjusted. Check the information sheet supplied with the hat. If the
hat does not fit, recheck your hat size, and exchange your hat for the correct size. Hats in unused condition
with all tags can be returned for exchange or refund within 90 days of purchase.
