If there's one thing we Aussies know like the back of our hand, it's the scorching sun and unpredictable weather. Whether you're outback wrangling cattle or tinkering away in the garden, having the right hat on can make all the difference.

Here at Kakadu, we offer a ripper range of wide-brimmed hats that are not only sun-smart but also packable and easy to chuck in your kit bag.

  1. Cool Caps: Beat the Heat in Style

Caps might seem more suited for a game of cricket, but hear me out - they're bloody perfect for those quick outdoor jobs! Opt for caps made from breathable materials like mesh or moisture-wicking fabrics to keep your head cool and sweat-free. Caps like our Denim Trucker and Oilskin Ball Cap are designed to handle Aussie heat without sacrificing style.
