The Explorer is a high-performance hat designed for all season use whilst maintaining a stylish look. It features a traditional “wet wax” cotton fabric (PFC free) made by Britain’s leading traditional waxer to keep you protected. We've added a contrast underside to the brim to reduce glare and add that special B&S styling. This is the perfect complement to a quality wax jacket for your daily walk.
WATERPROOF FABRIC: Utilising a high-performance traditional wet wax fabric, the Explorer will protect you from everyday rain. However, unlike our waterproof baseball and flat caps, it does not have taped seams so will allow some water penetration in the worst conditions - the Explorer is best thought of as an everyday hat to protect you from the sun and rain, best suited for hiking, country pursuits and holiday adventures.
Forget the cheap materials used in less exclusive hats, the PFC free wax cotton used in the Explorer maintains a soft and natural feel and develops a delightful patina with age.
EASY CARE and TRAVEL FRIENDLY: This all-season hat can be easily surface cleaned with a clothes brush or damp cloth. Strong and durable it is easily stored or packed. The medium brim ensures your eyes are protected whatever the conditions.
DOUBLE STRAP with choice of colour: As a hat specialist we know what it takes to keep a hat on your head in the strongest winds. That's why the Explorer has a double strap system which can be tightened at the front and rear to ensure your hat stays with you when the going gets tough! Your Explorer arrives with both orange and navy straps that you can interchange as you wish.
The ideal hat to take on a trip, the Explorer is designed to protect you from sun and rain whilst maintaining a casual style suited to city and country.
Whether you’re heading out dog walking, shooting or fishing this hat will keep you dry and your eyes shaded. Perfect for a day outside in the mixed British weather!
