It seems that the size is larger than the size recommended. It does not fit well.

Fantastic 'Zulu' era Pith Helmet. I have wanted one of these helmets for over 40 years since watching Zulu in the 70's! Michael Caine also lives in my local town and its will be a pleasure to wear my helmet around town in this summer, in case I see him!
I'm sure it would remind him of filming in 1963-1964! Great Quality, Great Service - Thank You VH's

Pith Helmet
Bought this pith helmet to walk Hadriens wall with this October. Bought it as we thought legionaires helmets woukd be too corny. An OUTSTANDING decision! They are amazingly lite keep you cool keeps the sun out of your eyes and the rain off your neck. If you want to chat to every single person you meet this is the hat for you AND amazingly practical! My colleague bought from another site but was considerably inferior. Don't buy one if you look like Private Widdle from Carry on up the Khyber tho!

British Pith Helmet
Hooray! The revised sizing for us bigheads is a blessing, and the cotton head band very comfortable. My first attempt with the adjustable helmets, a couple of years ago, wasn't a success, because I couldn't get one big enough - thanks for the new version. Top marks, as usual, on delivery and service too.

Small Size
Size was advertised vaguely as "adjustable". On arrival it came nowhere near fitting on my 54 cm head. Pity as build, value and customer service were all good.
Customer Services
Good morning,
We are sorry to hear the hat was too big. Please note we do provide measurements in centimetres on the page of the item under "Hat Sizing Info". It is adjustable with hook-and-loop ending on the leather sweatband and it fits heads from 55 cm to 57 cm.

Best regards,

The Village Hats Team

Fantastic Value For Money!
Saw this hat advertised and did not expect it to be anywhere near as good. Fantastic quality at a very good price and delivered within a couple of days. Would definitely use this site again!

Superb Product
I wanted a "real"pith helmet without spending a fortune, and everything else I found that was not prohibitively expensive looked like it belonged at a halloween party. Not so this hat. The quality is excellent. Extremely pleased.

Classic Pith Helmet
Classic pith helmet. For correct historical reenactment the chin strap and the inner velcro lining strap might put you off, but for costume use it's good. Please keep in mind that the adjustable size is only up to size 59 and after that you'd have to get creative.

Pith Helmet
The helmet is superb, exactly what I had been looking for, and at this price it's really a bargain. The only minus point is the plastic strap but that is only a minor detail. Excellent service and prompt delivery, can be thoroughly recommended.

The price for this item was so reasonable that frankly my expectations were not very high. How wrong I was. It's a beautiful piece of kit that arrived very promptly, and in excellent condition. Many thanks.

Great hat - will fit large heads easily
Really great hat for the price.

It will also fit much larger heads than described - I am a 61, you just have to be creative with the velcro adjustment on the inside!

Top product- great service
I have been looking for a pith helmet for a while. I had heard from relatives who wore them in colonial times that they provide excellent sun protection and evaporative cooling.
All the helemts I had seen advertised were of the plastic reproduction type and were not only useless, but also did not fit.
This helmet is very light, quite compact, and if you fishtail the strap, it will fit a size 59 1/2 head comfortably. It doesn't easily come off, and it is a stylish way to stay cool in the summer.
If I have to criticise anything, it has taken a long time for the chemical smell to diminish-but this is normal for pith, I believe.
It came promptly, the packaging was excellent, and I would highly recommend it.

The pith helmet is of excellent quality and just what I needed to look like Major Ivor Titcher! Also, impressively fast delivery from the UK to Belgium.

A nice quality item, the chinstrap is only decorative, but the helmets fit is such that you wouldn't need it. I bought mine for the hot Spanish summers where I live. Being English I figure I can get away with eccentricities. Joking aside, it's very comfortable and practical.

I have been looking for one of these for many years, even in India.P The hat looks exactly like it should. Every time I look at it it makes me smile.D Only problem is it is a bit tight, I am a 59-60, so I can not complain.P
If You are looking for an original Pith helmet this is the one, buy, buy, buy.D
