Leather Cowhide Outback Antique Explorer Hat


If you need a cowboy-style hat made from premium cowhide leather – then look no further.

Our Explorer Hat is made from 100% full-grain cowhide leather. The fabric has a richness and character hard to find anywhere else. Your Explorer Hat will feel as though it is made just for you as it naturally adjusts to the shape of your head the more you wear it, along with the adjustable shape of the brim to further customise a style to suit you.

Stylistically versatile, but by no means is functionality lacking. Full-grain leather is taken from the toughest part of the hide, so is known to be the strongest leather available.
Guaranteed to protect your head whether it’s sunny, rainy or windy.
The premium leather is naturally waterproof, so water will bounce off your hat, with the wide-brim offering further protection for your face and eyes. This wide-brim is perfect for the summer months, too – protecting your face and eyes from the Sun with its UPF 50+ rating. A leather chin strap can be fastened around your chin to prevent the hat flying off during those windy days. This chin cord can be easily removed and is attached to the inside of the hat so you won’t need to worry about holes in the side of your hat!
A reinforced forehead leather sweat pad prevents perspiration from soaking through and damaging the quality of your leather. It also helps retain a sturdy shape in the front of the hat.

We’ve been designing hats for 20+ years here at Walker & Hawkes, so you can be assured of expert craftsmanship.

Our Explorer Hat is made from leather which is intentionally distressed. This process involves carefully crafting the leather to give it an aged, worn-out look. The result is a vintage look unique to each and every hat, which all look like they have their own story. 

You can choose between 3 different colours – Black, Dark Brown and Light Brown. All selections have an aged, deep tone. Finished with braided straps and brass conchos around the crown for a fine finish. Complete the country look with our selection of outdoor clothing. Shirts, jackets, gilets and more available.

Measure yourself accurately and check against our size guide to get the perfect fit you expect from a Walker & Hawkes hat.
