Big-Brim Packable Panama 3.7 5 29 29
I Love my hat... Do you know how long I have been trying to find a hat like this? I had one like it several years ago and it did such a good job of protecting my face and neck that my skin stayed in great shape all summer (quite a feat if you live in sunny Florida). These days,hats of this kind sell for considerably more money(trust me I've paid it). They are "one size fits all" or as a friend of mine used to say "one size fits nobody." Finally I got a hat that actually fits my head..awesome. Do I expect to "roll it up and travel with it?" I have done it once or twice and had to wet it and re-shape it as I dried it to get it back to being useable, so no, I won't be doing that much. And I don't think it's really great for the hat. But for my purposes and my day to day life, it's just wonderful and I love this hat! March 25, 2011
Doesn't roll or pack Well it rolls and packs, but becomes permanently bent and never again looks right. It's cute, but just don't try and roll or pack it. March 19, 2010
Not perfect, but close Just got this hat. I had another red Panama, but it's a cowgirl hat, 7 years old, and has no pretense to rolling up. This hat is true to size, looks elegant, does a great job of blocking out sun, and should be as cool as they come in the summer. There are some people with truly magnificent heads, and I have recommended the XL to my daughter. The only problem I see is the packability. I tried rolling it up, although there were no instructions on how, which is odd, considering it's advertised as a rollup. There was the crease. Solution to that is to make sure you do the first fold directly on the front-to-back axis, so it looks like it's there for a reason. Panama hats do come like that. I am planning a 3 week trip this summer, will be outdoors in France, have to have a sun hat, have to look good. I went online and saw one panama hat website say not to roll a dry hat. I also priced Panama hats, and while this one certainly isn't cheap, Panama hats can run for a lot, lot more money than this, It is the only one of its brand that comes in sizes, which is a big plus. I cannot wear one size hats. They are always too small. . I need the rollup feature because of the trip, planes, luggage, all that. May make the hat last for a shorter time, but when I don't need to roll it up, it will be unrolled, and that should help. I gave the value only 4 stars because of high shipping costs. April 24, 2012
bowling ball I stupidly thought that I would be getting a different result than everyone else who had bought and reviewed this hat. I purchased the extra small and it came down over my ears and covered my eyes. I have an average sized head. Besides that the crown is so high and the brim so wide that it was absolutely ridiculous. A very silly, useless, bowling ball holder. I also bought the other one; the packable regular brim hat. That one is made by a different manufacturer. I purchased the xs and it sat on my head like a comedy routine---way too small. The crown was also too high. I was just disgusted and am returning both. I'll get a hat when I arrive at my destination. By the way, these hats are shipped in a big box, in fully open condition. I looked at the material and the weave and I doubt that they'd last long if folded. November 22, 2013
My second one - love it tho XL is too huge! I bought this same hat from Vt. Country Store a couple of years ago and have been wearing it ever since until it finally frayed too far. I need a good sun hat because I get an allergic reaction to sunlight. This one works great and I get compliments on the street from total strangers all the time! I thought I had the biggest head in the world so I ordered the XL, but had to return it for a large. I can't imagine who would wear the XL unless you're wearing curlers or an extra-bulky hair style!

Not as packable as one would like. I bought one of these last year for a caribbean cruise. It frayed so badly that I had to return it. I liked it enough to buy another for this years trip to Hawaii. It worked well to keep sun off my face & neck & even nice in a light rain. Chin strap keeps it on your head in wind. I rolled it up many times, placed it in a plastic bag secured with rubber band. I then put it in my briefcase or tote. It does not retain its shape well. The crown especially retains creases. The brim is okay. I like it well enough to keep it to travel with again next year. If I wanted to pack it flat in a suitcase, as I have done & others suggested, there are plenty of cheaper hats for that. We will see if this one falls apart next year. August 6, 2011
Great Sun Protection This is a great shady hat! I love the ventilation around the crown. I was disappointed when I went to roll it strands started snapping and breaking even though I was following the directions, so I am not sure it is as packable as it is advertised. April 30, 2010
Disappointed I bought an earlier version of this hat three years ago. After 2.5 years of use and packing, it started to break. When I called TravelSmith to ask them if this was acceptable, they cheerfully offered to replace it with this version. Unfortunately, the current version of this hat is totally unacceptable. I just returned from a month-long trip to China, and this hat cracked and became unusable after less than one week of travel-use-and-packing. I love the size and the style. But it just doesn't last. I will be returning this hat. June 13, 2010
