The Akubra Coober Pedy named for Australia's famed source of opals, including an authentic opal in the genuine kangaroo leather hatband. Hat is fully satin lined and shaped with a bound edge. The Coober Pedy hat by Akubra is a popular fur-felt hat for both city and country wear. The 3-1/4 inch bound edge brim, tilted down in front and back for protection from sun or rain, is dinkum Aussie. The pre-creased crown is 4 inches high at the front, 4-1/2 inches at the sides, eyeletted and fully lined, with a half inch ribbon band. The pure fur felt is Akubra's Imperial Quality. Coober Pedy comes from the Aboriginal name kupu piti, meaning “White Fellows' Burrow”. The famed opal fields in South Australia were so named by the local Aboriginies because the miners dug shafts underground not only to extract opal but to live in as well. And indeed 70% of the inhabitants of Coober Pedy still live underground in the “White Fellows' Burrow” to escape the oppressive heat and sun of that desert region. The Coober Pedy hat does not provide quite the cool and shade of a burrow, but it is the next best thing if you have to go out in the sun, or rain for that matter. Think of it as your own portable burrow.
