Thank you for your feedback.
Perfect fit and just what i wanted for my holidays, nice and light and folds easily to fit into a suitcase.
The Tumi Panama hat is great, fits perfectly and is well made (compares well with higher priced high street ones).
It is excellent quality, a great fit and looks good (better than some other higher priced manufacturers!!)

Product Description

Our genuine Panama hat is hand woven and fairly traded in Ecuador. Made from natural "iraca" palm fibre which is far cooler and breathable than synthetic materials or cheap replicas.

Panama hats are made and worn all over Latin America, but the traditional Panama hat which has taken its name from the Panama canal, are made in Ecuador. Their flexibility and the fact that you can fold or roll them for traveling, makes them unique.

The sizes are in centimeters and based on the circumference of the head passing across the middle of the forehead. Our smallest is 54cm and the largest 62cm. As all our hats are handmade, the brim size varies slightly but it normally measures between 6 cm and 7.5cm. Please choose your size when placing your order - we will gladly exchange your hat for a different size if it turns out to be the wrong one.

You may also wish to consider our basic Tumi cardboard Panama travel tube or our Tumi balsa wood Panama travel box. If so, just search for them on Amazon.

Tumi was founded in 1978 promoting fair trade crafts and goods with Latin America, working closely with organisations such as Traidcraft and Oxfam Trading. Tumi has worked with our hat makers in Ecuador for many years and ensure that we pay a fair price (set by our partners), good working conditions and a sustainable future for our workers.

Please note that your hat will not be posted rolled up/folded. It will instead be posted in a box large enough to accommodate it without it being folded. The reason for this is that you should wear a Panama Hat for a few days/week before first rolling it. This allows the hat to adapt to the shape of your head and develop flexibility. Failure to do so will result in damage to the hat and shorten its lifespan.

I am delighted with this hat. It exceeded my expectations, I was expecting it to be of mediocre quality, given its price compared to other similar hats from other suppliers, whereas, when I received it, I discovered it was truly a high quality, well-made genuine Panama hat, of a quality I feel it would be hard to beat. It included details of its origin/credentials, keeping to the true traditions of the Panama Hat. This is no inferior copy, it's the real thing.
Additionally the supplier provided an easy, clear process for returning the hat for any reason, which I needed to do as I had ordered the wrong size. The replacement came very rapidly.
Highly recommended.

I took receipt of this lovely Panama today and I'm totally delighted with it's quality and style!
I'm also glad it's a Fairtrade item and authentic
It is the third of my growing classic hat collection - to be worn on those days my trilby and fedora become too warm.
I've always hated wearing baseball/trucker caps but never summoned up the courage to get proper hats, up 'till now, partly because of my steadily receding hairline and an apparent reappearance of classical men's wear, namely hats.
Wearing them causes some people to stare at you or joke, but just take it in your stride. At the end of the day they're envious of your audacity to actually wear something they would like too, but are too conformist and fearful of other's reactions to try themselves.
Hats keep your head warm in cold weather. They keep the sun out of your eyes. This beautiful panama allows your head to breathe through its lattice. A beautiful and logical compliment to casual summerware such as linen or cotton, shirts, jackets.
If you're the slightest bit interested, give it a try. Once you try a proper hat, you never go back.

For the money, you couldn't buy a better quality Panama anywhere. I bought the fold-able version as I always abuse my stuff (without meaning to I might add), and the softer weave ensures that the titfer can be manhandled without fear of the weave cracking or coming apart. I don't really need to fold it, I just thought the construction would suit my wayward ways - and it does!

Now, where's the blooming sun?

That is all.

I was looking for a while before selecting the Tumi foldable Panama hat. I picked this due to its flexibility and allowing folding for travel purpose. My initial views was the hat looked well made, fit well and very stylable. Unfortunately on using the hat for the first time (holiday to Cuba)the hat weave came apart, leaving the hat very tatty, and unuseable. The hat also got a little wet one day due to raining for 15 minutes, which caused the hat to discolour to yellow. I would not recommend this hat. Maybe a better grade of weave would be recommended.

What an excellant product! A classy authentic Panama which looks more than good. ALSO it folds to make travelling to the sun easy.In the past my Husband's panamas have inevitably split over periods of trying to pack them,however carefully,in the suitcase to avoid losing in transit.
Initially my order was obviously too small.It was changed swiftly with immediate and polite response and advice as to my replacement.
I recommend Tumi most highly.

Robust, stylish and of excellent quality . . Fits exceptionally well and represents good value for money, particularly because it benefits those involved in the fair trade scheme.

Bought this for my hubby. We are lucky enough to be able to holiday several times a year and carrying sun hats has always been a bit of a problem. This hat seems to be the perfect solution to that. Explicit instructions are enclosed with the hat and are easily understood. Make sure you order a travel tube with the hat to save it from damage when you're packing it in your case. I wasn't sure if a travel tube was included in the price, it wasn't but no hassle to order one now.
"Delighted" was the reaction from my hubby. May look for a ladies' version for me now

I wanted a real Panama hat for going away and this fitted the bill perfectly. Retains it's shape quite quickly and very good a blocking the sun, especially when your hair challenged like myself.

Size 59 was slightly larger than my head, but not an issue as you can make tighter by altering the headband.

Great hat!
