Price Per Hat: $18.00
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.
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.
Approx. 4 1/2" crown
Approx. 2 3/4" front and back brim
Approx. 2 1/2" side brims
Made of: Pith or Cork of certain trees in Vietnam, covered in cotton twill.
Size: Adjustable(velcro strap). Fits up to size 7 3/8" 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.]
