            Ordered this hat because I wanted something to keep the weather (sun, rain, snow) off my head. Use it when driving my Jeep with the roof off, canoe camping, hiking and outdoor sporting events. Hope it will last for many years.

            Comments about South African Ranger Hat:

            Had throat cancer and need to protect my face and neck from the sun. I have tried numerous hats made of felt and canvas, none of which really seemed to work. This is the first leather hat I've owned and am quite pleased with it. Great for leisure wear or any occasion. This undoubtedly will be the first hat I will grab when leaving the house.

            South African Raku Elephant
            (Based on 3 reviews)
            Category: Home & Garden/Home Décor/Sculptures & Vases
            Artisans in South Africa use raku pottery techniques to create this colorful elephant. The bright color-block pattern is inspired by the beadwork and painted homes that are artistic hallmarks of the northeastern Ndzundza Ndebele people. Elephants symbolize steadfastness and wisdom—a pair of curved tusks even frames South Africa's coat of arms. Popular lore says that elephants never forget, and they often recognize humans and other elephants even after decades, making this handcrafted sculpture a touching gift for a loved one who is far away. Colors may vary in each handcrafted sculpture.

            Sunburn can put a damper on any vacation, not to mention the long-term risks of sun damage, so smart travelers recommend wearing a wide-brimmed hat. But fitting one into limited baggage space without bending or folding it can be a challenge. Our Breezer Cotton Travel Hat solves that problem by being 100% crushable and packable. The nylon mesh crown springs back into shape after being flattened in luggage, and it allows breezes in for ventilation. A chin cord keeps the hat in place on windy days or on the water. SPF 30+ protection plus a 3” wide brim and a sweatband.
