Details

Akubra Cooper Pedy Hat. Named after the opal mining town, this hat could not get more Aussie with a kangaroo leather band embedded with an actual opal from the famous mine. The shape of this hat is immediately recognisable as Australian with the wide, sweeping brim to keep out the searing outback sun tilting downwards in that inimitable Aussie silhouette. Each hat is unique due to the characteristics of the kangaroo leather, and the cast of the fire in each opal.
Please note: This hat is sold and marketed as The Lightning Ridge Hat in The USA and Canada.

  • Available in stock colours: Santone Fawn, Black & Sand.

  • Crown Height: 100mm
  • Fully lined.
  • Reeded Roan Leather Sweatband to wick away sweat.
  • 3 Eyelets For Ventilation On Each Side Of The Crown.

Outstanding versitle hat for all occasionsReview by Steve

This hat is so good I bought two. I ordered a Bluegrass Green and during the wait decided on an additional one in Sand. The price and personal service from Sam is outstanding - which I already knew having previously bought a Banjo and Stylemaster so don't look anywhere else if you are considering an Akubras buy the best from the best that'll be Sam.

Akubra "Coober Pedy" and "Pastoralist" hats.Review by Piet

My wife & I were living in Melbourne at the time in 2003. We moved to Cairns on retirement in Mid 2003. We went to see Sam before we left Melbourne, and we bought a "Coober Pedy" hat for me and a "Pastoralist" for my wife. It is now 2016. In the Tropical Sun these hats have been wonderful. They look as good as new but ... due to heavy perspiration the brim of my hat is starting to discolour. Good news, in a few days time we fly back to Melbourne to visit friends. I called Sam but spoke to his son Josh. Yes, I will be looking forward to meeting Sam again and possibly buying a replacement for my Coober Pedy. See you soon, Sam. Thanks for Everything Australian.

I have been searching for a good hat for awhile. My lovely wife noticed this & suggested that I get the 'Akubra' Coober Pedy for my Valentine's gift. Placed an order online late at night & my order was promptly shipped the next day! But it took 6 working days to arrive in Perth WA, thanks to slow Australia post. BUT when I opened the box it was all worth it. Even better, when I placed the hat on my head, I was in complete happiness. Even my wife complimented on how good it looks on me. I didn't wanted to take it off. I am looking so forward to wearing this lovely hat working outdoors & on our family camping trips. I would like to thank Everything Australian for a good price & posting it in very well packed box, which is also handy to store your hat when not in use. The hat arrived to me in great new condition. I must also mention how lovely Sam was on the phone & how helpful he was. It is not everyday that you get this kind of service & this customer is very pleased. I shall be passing on my great buying experience with my family & friends. Raymond from Morley Western Australia. (Posted on 25/02/2016)

I've been wearing my Coober Pedy for over a year now and am rarely seen without it outdoors. When selecting the hat, I was looking for a particular look and feel along with a flowing classic shape. It's a beauty. (Posted on 5/11/2015)

I''ve never seen quality as good as this for the price. The felt is much softer than expected (a good thing) and details like the sweat band and lining are first rate. It''s also a stylish and versatile hat, looking good with a Drizabone or sports jacket. Great service from Sam as well; will definitely shop here again. (Posted on 3/05/2014)

Sam sent me the Coober Pedy in January. I unpacked it and placed it for the first time on my head. It fitted as if it were made for me. in sun, rain or wind it always served me well. I can only recommend this hat.
Also Sam´s help and service are outstanding and receive top marks. thank you very much from cologne. (Posted on 31/03/2014)

I like my Akubra Cattleman, but my wife loves my Coober Pedy with the genuine opal in the hatband. Hey! she liked it so much, she didn''t mind me buying another … THAT''s what I call "The Coober Pedy Effect" … buy one and you''ll most likely end up with two! It''s great to see that other people in California enjoy this hat and Sam''s outstanding customer service as much as I do. (Posted on 30/06/2010)

This hat - among several Akubra''s on my shelf - is gorgeous, comfy, and beautifully made. BUT the best thing is dealing with Sam and his crew at Everything Australian. They''re attentive, helpful, fun, informative...and overflowing with integrity. If only all people we encounter were so pleasant and honest. I am and will remain a repeat, satisfied customer.

Size guide

Hat sizing guide

If  unsure of your hat size, please use the following steps & refer to the size chart below:

1. Simply obtain a tape measure and measure the circumference of the head, just above the ears.

2. Ensure that the tape is wound straight around the head and is level from front to back. You may feel a bump in the back of the head - please ensure that the tape sits over the bump as this will be the widest part.

3. Please measure a few times for accuracy.

4. If the measurement is in between sizes, please select the larger size. For example, a head measuring 59.1cm - 60cm would take a size 60cm hat.

Please note: For Akubra hats with a leather hat band, It's always best to buy a hat that is a little too big, rather than too small. As well as moulding to your head, your Akubra hat will shrink over time. If a hat feels too loose initially, you can pack the inside of the crown to make the hat feel smaller, or use a hat Insert.
