Aussie-inspired Kakadu hats and outerwear have been tackling rugged conditions presented by the Australian Outback - and similarly unforgiving environments - for 25 years. Their modern-day Microwax® cloth mimics the oil-soaked sailcloth of the early 1800’s that kept drovers well protected from the wind and rain. This super tight cotton weave keeps even ocean winds at bay, while the crystalline structure allows perspiration and moisture to escape. Add to that the water-repellent coating and you'll shed water as easily as a duck in a rainstorm. Highly functional ...

I should have read the review before I placed an order. I bought L, but it felt like S. It only looks good from the picture. I had to return it.
This brand cuts smaller than usual. Another brand cut out from the list!

All the reviews and the product page say this runs small, but that must refer to the number size, because I usually wear an XS (0-2), and I was swimming in their XS (6). Had to return. But the quality seems good.

I measured my head before choosing the size, but must have done it wrong. This great hat arrived but didn't fit. I was then so disappointed that there were no other sizes available. So I ended up paying a bunch of shipping costs with nothing to show for it.

I ordered this as a work shirt. I normally wear a M, got a L, and it was too small in the bust and across the back of the shoulders (no flex room), so have returned it for an XL. The snaps are very hard to close, but I suppose they will loosen up with use and at least they won't pop open when unintended. It is well-constructed and I like the embroidery detail.
The color is absolutely NOT as shown. It's a dark loden green (and is labeled "Loden" on the tag), not the weathered tan pictured. The fabric has a waxy finish, but it says it's 100% cotton, so I am curious to see how it looks after being washed. I expected the fabric to be heavier than it is, but it's very tightly woven and should work well as a work shirt in warm or hot weather, which is what I bought it for. The embroidery is tan, as shown in the picture.
The fit is strange, too, not at all as pictured, but the surprise was that my husband liked it so well on me that he wants me to wear it into town, not for work! It's more shaped than I expected from the photo, which he likes just fine! The sleeves are a normal length, which is too long for me, but I expect to just fold back the cuffs, as I often have to do. (I am only 5'0" tall).
Overall, I hope to be able to wear the replacement shirt, but won't know until I get it and try it out. It hurts to have to pay shipping three times, and I will definitely be more cautious in the future when ordering online.
