When you head out on that great adventure, this handcrafted hat from South Africa offers comfort, ventilation, and protection from the sun. Fashioned of suede and breathable cotton mesh, similar to a style worn by Africa's game rangers. Crushable; packs flat. Made by tribespeople living near Kruger National Park.


This improved version features lightly oiled suede, which helps the hat keep its shape better.

I bought this hat for my husband who is very sensitive to the sun but, loves the outdoors. The mesh is cool while the brim offers needed protection for the face. He looks great in it and has received many complements.

It's a little too big. I normally wear Large but got a size up because of measuring.
Large might have been too small. It's going to work. I'm hoping to look good for plant sales, campouts, picnics, etc. Glad it's not real dark in color (black hat syndrome). Wish it looked more like the picture but the mesh/leather color is a bit off. Mesh is more closed than picture but still very open. Inside flap goes up in front inside of hat, unlike the picture.

        Very authentic and very cool (in style as well as ventilation!). Saw a friend wearing one last year and was very taken with the quality and authentic look; so I recently ordered one as a birthday gift for my brother-in-law who absolutely loves it. Quite comfortable and the head doesn't get sweaty. The quality and craftsmanship is easy to see and it's just such a cool hat. Thanks, National Geographic, for knocking it outta the park on this one!

          Comments about African Suede Mesh Hat:

          It's my casual summer hat. I have even fallen in the water with it on and it came out fine. Love the way it looks and protects me from the sun for adventure and the beach. After two summers it is even better. My only complaint is that I wish it had an inner ribbon inside as I always buy hats a size larger as I prefer the look, then I add fabric under the brim to customize the fit. I had to come up with something else which doesn't work as well. I don't have to recommend the hat. I am always asked about it.

          Found this to be a hat I can let my husband wear in public. He is an outdoors man and needs to wear a hat to keep out the UV rays. This hat is practical and good looking.

          I Like the hat, only comment is the largest size offered in the NG catalogue is XL, the largest size available on the manufacture's site is XXL ... would have appreciated the extra bit for my rather large head.
