Due to the handmade nature of the Pith Helmets, please be advised that there may be some minor imperfections in the construction of the hat.
These imperfections should not hinder the look or the wear of the helmet.
The hat is made from the core (pith) of trees that grow in northern Vietnam. They are made one piece at a time;see the images at our Pith Helmets main page.
This helmet has the same properties as the others piths we carry, that being light weight (the 4-ply wood interior is low-density-somewhat like balsa wood).
The pith helmets can be immersed in water, whereby the wearer stays cool during use on hot summer days. Please submerge the outside of the helmet carefully, without allowing water to spill into the interior of the helmet.
