Classic Panama Fedora

As authentic as they come. Our Panama hat is constructed from plaited leaves of the toquilla straw plant, woven by hand in Ecuador, and blocked and finished in Fall River, MA. Teflon? coated for water resistance, it features a moisture-wicking polyester sweatband and a foam size adjuster for a perfect fit. An insert in the crown protects against cracking from regular wear. Detailed with a navy grosgrain ribbon and an antiqued-brass Orvis pin. Panama hat in ivory. Made in USA. Sizes: M(7-7⅛), L(7¼-7⅜), XL(7½-7⅝), XXL(7¾-7⅞). 2½" brim; 4" crown.

"I have purchaced no fewer than 4 of these Panama Hats from Orvis I have them set up with different Hat Bands. Its more convenient that way and much easier than changingHat bands. I love these hats and find the Quality to be at least equal to Panamas that I own that cost twice as much.The weak part of Panama hats is the peak (they crack after a while) but not these as thay have an insert that adds strength prevents cracking.

Top (Quality) Hat,
March 18, 2014
By: sawgrass

"I don't wear hats too often, being in a fairly windy area, but do enjoy them for the sun protection and shade. So when I do wear one I like for it to fit well and look nice and snappy, and this hat fits the bill quite well. Seems to be of top quality and well made. Looking to see how it holds up over time but believe it will just fine. However, (has to be one) I wish the crown was higher. I got the XXL to fit my big head, which it does just fine, but with the bigger head the crown needs to be raised about from 1/4" to probably 1/2" then it would have been absolutely perfect."

Quality hat to keep you cool,
March 11, 2013
By: PrairieGuy

"This is a classic "Panama hat" up to a point. The straw is woven in Ecuador, where the best Panamas come from, though the hat is assembled in the U.S. It is very well made, and the reinforcement in the crown will keep it looking good for a longer time than normal. The straw is very stiff, rather than the soft straw of some Panamas, which could have been noted in the description."
