Did you know that kangaroo leather is four to five times stronger than the equivalent thickness in cow hide? So it's very light but tough. Roo's, as we call them, are not farmed. They live in the wild so the marks and scratches are normal and add character to the hat. The ROOLANDER hat style is the same as the Huskie and Inlander aviator hats with the exception that it's built out of Kangaroo leather. Trimmed with cowhide leather, metal hardware, and lined around all the exposed areas in a thick mock rabbit fur. The inside cap is a thick quilted taffeta.
