The quintessential Australian cowboy hat since at least the late 1800s.

More rugged and utilitarian in appearance than its American cousin the Stetson, its durability and all-weather use means make it particularly well-loved by Australian stockmen and farmers. Akubras (along with Mountcastles) are also worn by members of the Australian Defence Force.

Name believed to be derived from an Aboriginal word for head covering.
"That was a beaut hat Hugh Jackman was rocking in that film 'Australia' "
"That was an Akubra mate, the hat of men."

"No more snapbacks or bucket hats for me, I finally got myself an Akubra today mate!"
"Finally, by God, a real hat!"
"Feel like rounding me up some jumbucks now, let's get out there cobber!"
