Akubra Hat Jack - Medium

$39.95

Whether you own a dozen hats that rotate through the seasons, or one favourite that only appears on special occasions, a Hat Jack is darn handy to have. Its main purpose is to help maintain the size and fit of your hat while it's not being worn. Simply place the Jack inside your hat, level with the sweatband, and twist the internal screw until there is tension on the hat.

Features:

  • Medium size fits hats between 57cm - 59cm
  • Lightweight Balsa wood

For general care tips, please see our HAT CARE page. 

Please note: We don't recommend trying to stretch your hat with a Hat Jack any more than half to one size, or for the occasional tweak. Attempting to stretch more than that with a Jack as opposed to a full-sized stretcher can cause warping and deformation of the crown.

Akubra Size Guide

Measuring Your Head Size

Heads come in all sizes, and in a surprising variety of shapes.

Although Akubra hats are adaptable, and will usually conform to differences in shape with a little wearing, it is essential that the size be correct for your head.

To determine your hat size follow these 3 simple steps:
  • Measure the circumference around your head - approximately 12mm (1/2") above the ears
  • Keep the dressmaker tape level and firm, across the temple and above the eyebrow ridges.
  • Check the size chart given below.

NOTE: For in-between measurements use the next size up.

For an enduring fit with your new Akubra the following points should be considered:

  • The Sheepskin inner band of the hat may shrink slightly with use. Do not expect a tight-fitting hat to 'loosen up'
  • In time, the hat will conform to your head shape. Initially, a slightly loose-fitting hat can be adjusted using folded tissue placed behind the inner band, then removed as the hat conforms to your head shape.
