Village Hat Shop French Pith Helmet

French Pith Helmet

 

Please Note: Due to the handmade nature of Pith Helmets, be advised there might be minor imperfections in the construction of the hat. These imperfections do not hinder the look or wear of the 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 handmade in Vietnam using the techniques 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.

 

Field Test Review:
"I field tested this hat in the Anza-Borrego desert. After arriving at a deser 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."

 

Approx.
4 1/2" Crown
2 3/4" Front and Back Brim
2 1/2" Side Brims

 

Made of:
Pith or Cork, Covered in Cotton Twill
Composite Leather Band

 

Size: Adjustable - Fits up to size 7 3/8 comfortably; adjusts via a Velcro-like ending to the interior sweatband. If you're looking to fit a size 7 3/8 or above, we suggest the BIG HEAD version of this helmet.
