John Carpenter delivers the ultimate in alien terror in this chilling story about an Antarctic research team that discovers a form-changing alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years.
In remote Antarctica, a group of American research scientists are disturbed at their base camp by a helicopter shooting at a sled dog. When they take in the dog, it brutally attacks both human beings and canines in the camp and they discover that the beast can assume the shape of its victims. A resourceful helicopter pilot MacReady played by Kurt Russell and the camp doctor lead the camp crew in a desperate, gory battle against the vicious creature before it picks them all off, one by one.
Our Beaver Fur Felt Hat Bodies
Our hats are made with beaver fur felt which is dense and virtually waterproof. It consists of beaver and/or rabbit/hare fur blended with felt to produce a material that lasts 5-10 times longer than wool-felt. A fine Beaver and Beaver blend fur-felt hat body holds its shape wonderfully and is the gold standard from which to manufacture fine working hats.
The higher the beaver content the higher the X factor and the rough beaver hat bodies we use to make our cowboy hats are the best available and made in America!
We sell 3 quality beaver blends of fine western hats – 5X, 20X and 100X:
- 5X is a blend of about 5% beaver with rabbit and felt.
