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.
This is the best hat I've ever owned. My previous one lasted over 20 years, wore it through thick and thin, and replaced it with the exact same model.
May you enjoy many more years with your new one :) FYI, that is the last of the BC Hats. Bill Conner (BC) retired and shut down his factory last year in Australia after 50 years of making handmade leather hats.
Since I ordered this hat I’ve received so many compliments. The hat is very well made and has held up to one rain storm so far. Would definitely replace it with another one should this one wear out.
Glad you like it. Its a one of a kind and is the last of its kind. Bill Conner (BC) closed his factory after 50 years of making handmade leather hats.
Have several of their wide brimmed safari hats - perfect for keeping the sun off + always get a ton of compliments. Wonderful customer service too
Glad you're liking the hat. It's the last of its kind too! After 50 years of making handmade Australian leather hats, Bill Conner (BC) closed down his factory. Enjoy and be sun safe!
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.
