The Bac Pac Traveller is hand made in Byron Bay, Australia. The man who brought you Australia's original leather hat goes one better with this great shape. Features a removable hat band and made with waterproof suede steer hide. This hat can be crushed and will pop back out to its original shape. Fitted with a comfortable leather inner band. Our best selling BC Hat style!
A light-grade sandpaper or soft cleaning brush can be used to take out marks on suede hats. We have even used clear, soft erasers. Make sure the eraser is not colored, as this can leave a mark. There are also many non-toxic, waterproof sprays available to give your hat added protection from stains and rain.
I have a number of hats from different makers and this hat has now become my favorite hat both for looks and quality.
Keep that close to you. After 50 years of making hand made leather hats, Bill Conner (BC) decided to shut down his factory and catch that perfect wave in Australia. Thank you for your kind review and be sun safe!
Ill be honest from the get go, this hat deserves 5 stars; but I personally never trust 5 star ratings online. However conner hats is a different stort. Got my first one by chance about 7 years ago. Just needed a cotton hat for outdoor labor. It stood the test of time and I still regularly wear it. Got this one because I wanted to change it up a bit and its juat as good as the other one. Trust the reviews, I know you dont know me from Adam but its worth it. Just pick a style and you cant go wrong here.
We appreciate and value your honest review, especially when you're an existing customer from before.

FYI, the BC Hat you have will be the last of it's kind. Bill Conner (BC) had been making hats since the late 60's and it was last year that he decided to close down his factory in Australia and retire.
Since I've had my hat, so many people have complimented it. That's when I get on my soap box and tell'em all about it... :O) They see the quality, fit, and style, then they ask the magic question...where can I get one! I herd them to your site and say enjoy the awesome styles for men and the ladies.
Again, thanks for a great product Mr. Conner. Bless you all.
We absolutely appreciate that you 'herd' them our way. With our Aussie factory closed for an indefinite period, you have a piece of BC Hat history stretching back to the late 60's. If you haven't already, here's a link to the story of how BC Hats and Conner Hats started.
Love my Bac Pac Traveler....it fit like I've had it for years. Thank you Mr. Conner for making a great product...and thank you Will, and Margie for your help.
God bless you all.
I'll be sure to pass the complements over to Will and Margie! Enjoy!
BC makes the most natural feeling hats I have ever put on my head!! If you have ever worn one of those "elastic multifit brim" hats you are in for a treat. Just use the size chart, order maybe a pair of those band adjusters if you are "in between" sizes along with your hat. When it arrives, take it out of the box, place it on your head, move the hat slightly until it feels good then go about your business. That will be the last day you go "bare headed!! Nuff said!
