I have owned too many American brand cowboy hats to count, but I have owned at least 30, all the top brands, including the famous Open Road. None of them has been as comfortable or as durable as my various Akubra hats.
I have a Campdraft that I have owned for several years. It has been soaking wet too many times to count (maybe 100). It has not shrunk or lost its shape or colour (Bluegrass Green, which to my eye looks grey). It was comfortable right out of the box, and the crown is easily shaped.
One big reason for the superior comfort of all Akubra hats is the interior sweatband, a soft but durable leather. Many American cowboy hats, including the Open Road, has a sweatband that is more like cardboard. The difference is quite noticeable.

Bought this hat in Blue Grass Green a few months back. This has become my "go to hat"
I've worn it in rain, sleet, and snow and it looks just as good as the day it arrived. Very easy to crease. Hope to buy the SilverBelly soon. Sam and all the people at EA are great to deal with. Great pricing and custom service.
Order this hat, you won't be sorry. (Posted on 13/01/2017)

I have had 3 of these (2 Campdrafts, 1 Campdraft Deluxe). These hats are soft, easily blocked by hand, can be re-blocked to different styles, retain their shape, and take incredible abuse. The hatband is soft, comfortable, and immediately conforms to the head. There is no American hat at a comparable price. NOTE: 2 of the hats I bought are said to be "green", but the "green" hat does not appear to be green unless it is under just the right kind of light; it appears as a medium grey. So, have no fear of looking like a leprechaun or a St. Patrick's Day reveler if you by the "green" hat. (Posted on 15/08/2016)
Great hat - allows you to make it what you want.Review by Matthew

This is a great hat. Open crown allows you to create a custom look - western Open Road, fedora, center dent safari, pork pie or boss of the plains.
Holds up to any weather except that it can be a bit warm in mid summer. This is not a hat that you must protect - rather it protects you. Durable.
My favorite color is BlueGrass Green (I have the CD in 4 different colors).
Sweat band is comfortable and shrinks to fit after a little bit of wear - so do not be too concerned if it is just a little loose upon arrival. (Posted on 6/08/2016)

I bought a Campdraft and a Stetson Open Road within a few days of each other recently. No comparison! The CD is soft, lightweight, very comfortable due to soft, flexible sweatband. The OR was stiff as cardboard; the sweatband was neither soft nor smooth. Both hats were exposed to wetness repeatedly; the CD maintained its appearance and the OR did not; I use past tense, because the OR wound up in the trash. (Posted on 23/12/2015)

I´m owner of seven Akubras, but my favourite is my Campdraft with cattleman shape, wearing as Open Road. What a hat, absolutly fantastic processed. Also very recommendable the books "Akubra is Australian for Hat" by Grenville Turner from 1988
and 2009. A big praise for Everything Australian, great service and fast shipping.

Just got my "bluegrass" Campdraft. Soft, easy to block by hand, very attractive and very comfortable. I have had other Akubras over the years, and I do not think they can be beat. I doubt I will wear my Stetson Open Road much henceforth (Posted on 28/08/2015)
Akubra is the bestReview by horseman , Chicago, Illinois

I cannot speak highly enough of Akubra hats. I have owned three "open crown" versions (Squatter, Bushman and Campdraft). They are elegant-looking and easily blocked to one's preferred style. I blocked the Squatter as a fedora; I blocked the Bushman and Campdraft "western-style", flattening the brim as well. These hats are almost indestructible , and very comfortable due to the excellent sweatband. Cautionary word: all hats shrink if they get wet enough times, including Akubras; if in doubt about your size, I would recommetd ordering the next larger size. (Posted on 21/08/2015)

Okay. So. It finally arrived 'home' and I could hardly wait to cut the strings, remove the insert and drop this lid on my noggin. Wah Lah! Though a tad large, it's nothing that spacers cannot fix for the this Bluegrass Green lid is really wonderful! Although the brim is a bit wider, it is a lid I could get used to wearing immediately! The felt is smooth and it took one of the only two block I could create with no steam. It feels sturdy yet with a touch of class, it fits well within my novice-sized collection of hats! As an earlier reviewer mentioned it being similar to Stetson's Open Road, I think it's tad higher in quality and style! The short of it, I'm sold! I just may wait a few months for next one...In Silverbelly! Sweet lid indeed! (Posted on 1/08/2015)

I have considerable experience shaping open crown hats through the years. This one was a pleasure. The felt is strong and a bit stiff, but it conformed well to the shape I gave it, and it stayed in place after I steamed it.
Beyond that, the hat is stylish and comfortable. It's advertised as a country style hat, but it fits in any urban setting where fedoras are becoming more common. I wear it on the commuter train every day. (Posted on 11/07/2015)

I have 2 Campdrafts - Bluegrass and Silverbelly. The colors shown are pretty accurate from my monitor, but the picture does not do justice to the changing tomes of the hats in real life. Well made and very attractive. You can form your own custom crease which is a very big feature for me.
These protect you from the elements - do not expect to worry about protecting them. They do come a tad large and shrink and conform to your head size and shape. This is common with quality materials. The long oval shaping is not necessary. I tried the process with one and not the other - the result is the same after a short period of time. I suggest that you simply wear the hat with a shim of some material in the sweat band at first. If you ask, they will likely send you some foam inserts. The hat will properly fit quickly.
Have faith and enjoy! (Posted on 15/12/2014)

The Akubra Campdraft is very similar in style to the famous Stetson Open Road and it''s various clones. In fact, Akubra was licensed to make the Open Road for several years. I own this hat in several colors, one being the very sharp bluegrass green that is unique to Everything Australian. Especially nice in the neutral silverbelly color, this practical hat looks just as good with a sportcoat and tie as it does with blue jeans. You won''t find a better selection of colors or price than offered by Sam and EA. (Posted on 3/08/2011)

Shortly after buying my first Akubra Campdraft, I read Grenville Turner’s book “Akubra Is Australian For Hat” … that''s when I knew that I was addicted to my Akubra Hats. The Campdraft is one of my favorite hats (I have 5 Campdrafts) in my collection. You won''t have to read the book, buy a Campdraft and you too will be addicted to Akubra''s quality and Sam''s expertise and personal customer service. (Posted on 30/06/2010)

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.
