Featuring Velcro band adjustment to insure perfect fit, this bucket hat uses a mid width brim construction to also provide sun protection. Our Durable Water Repellent polyester face fabric not only provides a degree of insulation but also weather protection.
To maintain optimum performance we recommend correct laundering of our products. Ensure all zippers and closures are fastened, machine wash using a gentle cycle with a water temperature not exceeding 30ºC (85ºF). We recommend using a mild odourless detergent intended for outdoor wear that does not contain UV brighteners. To ensure all detergent residues are removed from the fabric, a second rinse cycle is recommended.
The use of fabric softeners and bleach may affect the thermal, wicking and Durable Water Repellent capabilities of performance fabrics. We advise that no fabric softeners or bleach be used when laundering this product. Likewise, chemical solvents used in dry cleaning should be avoided. Do not dry clean.
The garment may be line dried after rinsing excess water. At all times keep away from direct heat. Do not iron.
This garment comes factory treated with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish. DWR is a polymer based, chemical compound treatment applied to the face fabric during manufacture. It works by lowering the surface tension of the fabric, this will in turn cause water droplets to bead up and roll off.
In time, dirt and body oils, abrasion, and multiple launderings can diminish the effects of DWR. This will result in the fabric absorbing moisture more readily or ‘wetting out’. At this time, we recommend the application of a quality, commercially available DWR reproofing agent. These products are generally available in two forms, wash in and spray on. We advise the use of a spray on reproofing agent for this garment. For optimal results, follow the manufactures instructions.
Reproofing of DWR is dependent on use, regular application is recommended to maintain your garments water repelling capability.

Basalt Bucket Hat
I purchased this hat for a western QLD trip before christmas and I was very pleased with the hat. It gave me well coverage from the sun, it is easy to wash, scrunches up small and has an unreal camo pattern like all TUSX gear.
Awesome quality and well made, have used it many of times and there is no sign of wear and tear or fading
