Over the last twenty years, these caps are our most popular, and are exclusive to Wild Trout Downunder.

Both patchwork and plain have fused tops to keep their shape, and a small elasticised back so they can be worn comfortably with reduced chance of blowing off in the wind.

The patched Harris Tweed has been carefully top stitched in a brickwork pattern and is a bargain at $98.

The single colour in blue/brown/green herringbone is $88.

Although all sizes are available, almost all men fit comfortably into either large (size 57-8) or extra large (size 59-60).

Probably one of the finest caps of this style in the world. Combining a superb herringbone Tweed with a non clan tartan designed in the Outer Hebrides and balanced with a blue/green plain weave, this cap is exclusive to Wild Trout Downunder.

It appeals to both men and women, and can be garnished with brooches and feathers etc.

One size fits all with the use of a quality leather and brass sizing strap at the rear of the cap. Three colour options in the peaks are herringbone, tartan or plain weave.

The inside of the cap is fully fused lined so it does not readily crush. This also adds to its warm comfort.

This fully lined cap comes in a muted blue/brown/green herringbone mid-weight Harris Tweed in all sizes.
