A Hat For All Seasons.
Given as a christmas present in 2012, this hat is still going strong. It has taken on character and worn into me - people say I have worn into it. It has been worn almost daily for seven years and suits almost all weathers with the exception of extremes. (For very hot I have a Panama, for very cold a Ushanka.) It has been worn to everything from semi-formal occasions to nights on the sauce with the boys. Rained on, (Rarely has it soaked through.) snowed on, roasted, blown off, recovered, (At times by an automatic hat retrieval system - a dog.) treaveled, hill walked, sailed, city slicked and country bumpkined: it has done all with style. It is now on it's second hat band and if Village Hats or J&J read this please do an even limited range of simple hat bands as they are hard to source, even on the www. I cannot praise this hat enough. I was hoping to post a picture of it in action on a dreich day in the Outer Hebrides but there is no method to do that.

All Year Rounder
I bought this hat as I wanted something to wear out in the countryside and neither of my Ford Fedoras were not quite right.
This fired the bill, I wear it in summer and winter, it stays in the wind, I have sprayed it with a waterproofer from Nikwax and it helps with the rain.
It fits perfectly and is the 3rd hat I have bought from this site. Love it to bits.

Great Hat, Great Service
I’m a Village Hats regular and this is now my 15th hat from them, so that should tell you what I think.

This Crushable Outback in Olive is luxurious and nice to touch and wear.

This one was actually purchased for me for my birthday, although I did choose it.... wouldn’t want anyone else picking my hats.

Brilliant all round.

Not Quite As Expected
The hat arrived promptly and beautifully packed. However it resembled more of a cowboy hat than what I imagined an outback hat to be - even having studied the photo on the website.
I may have been inclined to keep it until my wife saw it. When she had stopped laughing she said, "You look ridiculous, when's the (blank) horse arriving?"
So unfortunately it's being returned ans I'll order another hat that meets with her approval!

Quality But Not Quite As It Looked In The Pictures
The hat arrived and I was rather disappointed that the shape was more of a stetson style with the sides lifted acutely upwards. In the pictures the front and back appear down and the sides flat - sadly this is not the case as I did not want a cowboy hat. The quality of the hat was lovely and the fit was true to size and supremely comfortable. If I was after a cowboy hat I would have kept it, but I was after a flatter brimmed hat so beware the two pictures do not show it quite as it is...... Sadly Had to be returned and another hat purchased but that is another story....
Customer Services
We are sorry to hear you were not happy with the shape of the Jaxon & James Crushable Outback Hat, however as advised in our email, it is the nature of outback hats to have a curled up brim on the sides (think Crocodile Dundee and Snowy River), and therefore quite a close shape to a western hat.
Best regards,
The Village Hats Team

Great versatile hat- warm, comfy and tough. A great stage hat, which also earns it's keep outdoors. I've been wearing this hat for a couple of years and it shows no signs of wear . Good packaging and delivery from Village Hats.

I used to have a hat similar to this but it was a tad small. Spotted this and was delighted to find the XXL size which, having measured my head carefully, should have been the perfect fit. And it is. Hat is brilliant as is the service. Delivered to my address in under 24 hours and packaged in a box designed for hats so it arrived in perfect condition. My first buy from this company but I'm sure I will be back. That Panama looks tempting....

Lovely Quality / Service, Variable Sizings
i'm now on my 5th black hat, 4 from Village Hats. They're travellers. The first disappeared somewhere landside at Dublin Airport. Next on the 9.34am to Waterloo. Last one somehow vanished between car and Chichester Camera Club's Hall ! I struggle to find big enough hats, XL is about right. 3rd one perfect, last 2 my wife has had to pop Velcro inside the inner band to get the size right. Now stays on most of the time.

Comfortable Hat
I have never bought a hat online before as I prefer to try before I buy. I have a larger hat size and finding the correct fit is not always easy. This turned out to be a good experience all round and I am more than satisfied with my purchase. A little more brown than I was expecting but change is sometimes good!

Really Comfortable
Another nice hat from Jaxon. Very light but not flimsy. I like the cotton sweatband as I find leather ones a bit uncomfortable in hot weather. The colour is more brown than green to my eyes but for me that's not a problem. A good buy.

Colour is more brown than in the on-site image so buyers need to be aware of that. This hat is waterproof, good in the sun and Cub Scout resistant! Any hat that can be worn throughout a Cub Camp without losing its shape whilst retaining comfort and shelter from the elements for its wearer has to be great - very pleased with this hat. Also appreciated the prompt service from village hats - excellent.

I love this hat. Warm and comfortable, though not yet tested in rain. Unlike previous reviewer, I'm not bothered by the hatband, it looks OK. and I prefer a cotton sweatband to leather. I ordered online, and was happy with the e-mails informing me of order progress. Shipped within 1 day of placing order, and delivered 2 days later - Royal Mail 2nd class. no extra charge for delivery.
Excellent service and product, and my only problem is whether to order another or go for an Indiana Jones.

I bought the brown outback hat to wear when i am out shooting with my camera. It provides very good shading for my head, and bend very well away when I put the camera to my eye. At the same time, I think it provides me with an elegance that boost my confidence. Thank You very much.

Really fast delivery and very well packaged. The size guide works perfectly and the hat is just what I wanted. Unfortunately, everyone else, including my eighty year old mother, wants to wear it as well. I suspect it will disappear soon .... Good news is I know where to come for another. Thanks Village Hats - a great experience shopping with you.

And I am also very pleased with my new look and with the fact that it could happen at such an affordable price.

My first buy here. I got the Crushable Outback in black. I read all the reviews, saying they came the next day. And I thought, ''We will see''. Well my postman came up the drive with a box containing my hat'. What a great buy.
For the price of 24.95, It is streets ahead of the other sellers that charge you 50.00 and more.
I will be in for another onr in brown, after the weekend.

Great hat, great service
Hat was delivered very quickly, more so in fact than the website indicated. I really enjoy it. It is great in the rainy, cold weather we are having at present in northern France. It doesn't fell like a crushable in that it is quite sturdy, but it certainly snaps back after tough handling - my children have seen to that! Thanks for a great product at a fair price.

A fine hat- but not quite perfect. The hat itself is completely crushable- as advertised- stylish and wide-brimmed. Delivery prompt and goods well packed. Good value for money- but... I feel that the faux-leather hatband is a little on the cheap side- and a leather- rather than cotton sweatband would be even more comfortable. However- these are minor niggles- and at this price- still recommended. I most certainly recommend unreservedly.

What an amazing service all the way to Pakistan in less than 10 days where the hat is doing sterling work against the heat of the Punjab sun

One very minor niggle is that the excellent quality of the hat is marginally compromised by the non-leather trim
