With Jurassic World roaring out to a record box-office weekend, we thought we'd take a look back at some great Jurassic Park hats that have popped up over the years.
1. Dr. Alan Grant (played by Sam Neill). Dr. Grant is a paleontologist who enjoys hunting for dinosaur bones before being hunted himself. He sports a variety of hats throughout the series, mostly wider-brimmed fedoras. Starting off in Jurassic Park, Dr. Grant is shown wearing a custom-made straw fedora, or panama fedora, with most likely a horsehair hat band with tassles.
While we cannot find an exact copy, we do have a few hats that are similar - the Brittoli Governor Panama Hat, the Stetson Retro Panama Straw Fedora and the Scala Grade 3 Panama C-Crown Hat.
In Jurassic Park III, Dr. Grant opts for an olive green fur felt fedora with a black ribbon hat band.

The hat is custom-made and looks to be crushable for travel, but we do have a few similar hats, the Bailey of Hollywood Briar in Pale Olive and the Country Gentleman Dickens in Khaki.
2. John Hammond (played by Richard Attenborough). Attenborough can be seen in many hats throughout his storied acting career, but as John Hammond he first appears in a stylish wide-straw hat with a wide white hat band and a telescope crown (no pinches).

We were able to find one hat fairly close in style to this custom hat, the Bailey of Hollywood Roll Up II Panama Fedora.
3. Robert Muldoon (played by Bob Peck). Muldoon is the park's game warden in Jurassic Park, and seems to be one of the few employees who realizes the serious danger everyone in the park could be in at a moment's notice. Muldoon meets a memorable fate, but is normally seen wearing an outback hat throughout the movie with one side snapped up.
We have found an almost identical hat in our Bailey of Hollywood Dalton Safari Hat.
4. Others. There are quite a few other great hats in the movies throughout the years, especially in the original Jurassic Park:
