So you've decided to buy a Wombat bush hat, but which one to go for? There are currently 6 hats in the Wombat Leather bush hat range which makes you spoilt for choice.
All Wombat leather bush hats are made from the highest quality leather, are waterproof and will protect you to up to 50 UV but there are several differences in style, colour and finish. Apart from the Wombat Cowboy which has a shaped brim, all Wombat Leather bush hats are made to the classic Australian shape.
All Wombat Leather bush hats come in one of three kinds of leather: full grain, soft split or suede. Full grain leather has not been altered beyond hair removal. As the leather remains relatively close to its natural state, it is the toughest and most durable kind of leather. What’s more the colours, textures and markings may differ slightly giving a particularly rugged look.
At the tannery leather is often split into layers and then treated with oils. Split leather comes from those layers which are closest to the flesh and thus has a more uniform colour and texture as well as a soft and pliable finish. As it is thinner it is less durable than full-grain hide.
Suede is created from split leather by abrading the surface of the leather with an emery wheel. Due to its texture it is much more susceptible to stains from water damage than either full grain or split leather. With it's refined look and feel suede is often more popular with women.
