The Safari Hat is a floppy, wide brimmed hat that changes color based on that of the wearer's ink, with the band being considerably lighter than the rest of the hat's dull shade. On the top of the hat is a brown design with a red lobster in the middle, hence the Japanese name "Lobster Boonie". It also has a thin black string securing it to the wearer's head.
The Safari Hat comes with Last-Ditch Effort as a main ability when purchased from shops or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 2, this item can have any other Ability normally available to Headgear items.
