Wallaroo Hat Company, founded in April 1999, came about because of the need for sun protection and the desire to look great at the same time! There was nothing available in the U.S. that compared to the UPF-rated fashion "finds" from Australia. Wallaroo owners began importing small quantities of the hats from Australia. They quickly realized their potential and Wallaroo Hat Company was born. Wallaroo Hat Company has continued to expand its selection by bringing back favorite styles and designing new hats every year. What make these hats so special? Canvas, loose weave, microfiber, cotton twill, poly-braid, and polystraw make the Wallaroo Hat Collection washable, crushable and versatile for everyday work or play and perfect to pack in your luggage for travel. Each Wallaroo hat has been designed with an internal or external drawstring to make it one-size fits most.
