The safari hat is characterized by a medium to large-sized brim with a center-dent crown (depression in the middle with the outsides of the crown raised). Many of the hats on this page are packable and will give you good protection from the sun. A historic style, the safari has remained around for a long time because its shape tends to look good on a wide variety of people.
The safari hat, not to be mistaken with their predecessor, the pith helmet, is a versatile, stylish hat. It has a wide brim with a center-dent crown, unlike the pith. These hats were popularized by the likes of Indiana Jones on his adventures through jungles and rainforests in search of hidden treasures. To a lesser extent, U.S. President Teddy
Roosevelt wore them to the tropics and on his hunts in the African plains.
Today, though, you don't have to be in a temperate climate doing something historical or hysterical to don a safari-style hat. They are comfortable, fashionable hats you can wear for any occasion in any environment, whether it's the jungle or city street.
