For the grand adventurer this hat is for you. This French style pith helmet is the original design from Vietnam. These make great sun and rain shields for the dense jungles that you may come across.
A hundred years ago, the French discovered the advantages of the material used to make these hats, and they are still being made in Vietnam using the techniques inherited by the former French occupiers.
The pith helmets can be immersed in water, whereby the wearer stays cool during use on hot summer days. Important: Please submerge the outside of the helmet carefully, without allowing water to spill into the interior of the helmet.
Due to the handmade nature of the Pith Helmets, please be advised that there may be some minor imperfections in the construction of the hat.
