By popular demand, we have introduced this French style pith helmet in a size range for people with bigger heads.
Like our regular helmets, the size is adjustable by way of a velcro ending to the cotton sweatband.
Otherwise, the helmet is identical in quality and materials to the regular French style pith helmet.
This French style pith helmet is the original design from Vietnam.
A hundred years ago, the French discovered the advantages of the material used to make these hats.
The pith is from trees in northern Vietnam and has properties that make it both a good sun and rain shield.
These helmets are made in Vietnam using the technigues inherited by the former French occupiers.
4 1/2" crown
Made of: Pith or Cork of certain trees in Vietnam, covered in cotton twill.
Size: Adjustable. Fits up to size 7 5/8" comfortably.
[I FIELD TESTED THIS HAT IN THE ANZA-BORREGO DESERT. AFTER ARRIVING AT A DESERT OASIS, I DUNKED THE HAT FULLY INTO THE WATER. THE PITH MATERIAL RETAINED THE WATER FOR A TIME WHILE I HIKED BACK TO THE TRAIL HEAD. THE COOLING EVAPORATION OF THE WATER ON THE HAT WAS DELIGHTFUL. WHEN DRY, THE HAT RETAINED ITS STIFFNESS AND SHAPE.]
These pith helmets come 12 to a carton.
A B2B purchase requires that this hat be bought in increments of 12 units.
The price per helmet is $19.00 each (We retail this hat for $34.00. See our Pith Helmets section for purchasing of single hats.)
12 helmets at $19.00 per helmet equals $228.00. Entering 1 (one) at the shopping cart means that you are purchasing one carton of 12 helmets and paying $228.00.)
