About Wallaroo Hat Company
Stephanie Carter, Wallaroo’s CEO and Co-founder, started the company over 19 years ago. She created a product that helps protect people from sun damage and skin cancer, is making efforts to create sustainable headwear, and strives to create a workplace that supports her employees and their passions.
I was approached by Wallaroo to review their hats. Below I’ll share my experience with this awesome hat brand.
I received the following hats from Wallaroo to review in this post:
- Logan Hat ($51) – I am obsessed with this hat! I love the teardrop texture on top and the chin strap ensures that my hat always stays put.
- Sanibel Hat ($51) – I received this hat in salmon pink and love it! It also comes with a handy chin strap.
- Catalina Hat ($51) – This is an exact dupe of the $250 Helen Kaminski packable raffia hat, but at a fraction of the cost. Initially, I did not think this hat was my “style” but I wore it on a trip to Tampa, Florida and fell in love! It adds a ton of “cute” to my outfits.
- Lady Jane Hat ($64) – A collaboration with actress Jane Seymore. Similar style to the Catalina hat. That hat is 57cm and ran small on me. I was able to stretch it out with my hands and upgrade the hat by adding a strap from an Outerknown dress of mine.
- Aspen Hat ($67) – Love this felt fedora hat. It has a shorter brim and is great for warmer weather.

- Women-owned since 1991.
- Certified B Corporation since 2013.
- Many of their hat styles are packable.
- Hats have UPF protection. The Skin Cancer Foundation has given Wallaroo the Seal of Recommendation, a manufacturer must provide scientific data showing that their products sufficiently and safely, “aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin.” Wallaroo also donates 1% of their profits to skin care research each year. Read more about their sun protection efforts here.
- Internal drawstring to get the perfect fit for your head.
- Hats made for big heads! We found their standard hat size for women great for bigger-sized heads (58 cm to 59 cm). View their size chart here for more sizing details. They also offer petite-sized hats which are 55 cm.
- Free shipping on orders of $75 or more.
- Returns are allowed within 30 days of receipt. You will need to pay a returns shipping fee of $8.95. See their return details here. Return is deducted from your refund amount.
- You can search for brick-and-mortar Wallaroo retailers here. This is a great way to try out Wallaroo hats prior to spending money on the cost of shipping and returns.
- Hats sell out quickly. Hats are always selling out, so if you see the style you like, we highly recommend buying it as quickly as possible.
- Styles never return. Typically, once a style is sold out, it does not return. They do come out with new styles every season.
- Not all styles are packable. It’s important to read the description to determine if you can safely pack a hat into your luggage or not.
- Certain hat colors will fade. The Sanibel hat’s color will fade over time. There was a tag indicating that the color would fade and add to the uniqueness of the hat.
