It's an Aussie icon - as Aussie as a meat pie and sauce as a backyard barbie or a day at the beach. Akubra is the iconic Australian bush hat brand and is still Australian owned (in the 4th generation) and Australian made - the family have been making hats since 1900 ... many try to emulate this traditional hat but there is only one Akubra.
The Coober Pedy is as tough as nails and as tough as the opal miners the hat takes it's inspiration from within the opal mining town of Coober Pedy. This style of Akubra includes an authentic opal in the genuine kangaroo leather hat band, the hat is fully satin lined and shaped with a bound edge.
The Coober Pedy is at home in the Aussie Outback, in the mining fields in Coober Pedy or in the big smoke; it is one of the most popular Akubra fur-felt hats and is stylish and functional for both city and country wear. The 3-1/4 inch bound edge brim, tilted down in front and back for protection from the harsh Aussie conditions; be it the sun or rain. The pre-creased crown is 4 inches high at the front, 4-1/2 inches at the sides, 3 eyelets and fully lined and as with any Akubra hat it get's it's character with age.
