Thank you for your feedback.
The Tumi Panama hat is great, fits perfectly and is well made (compares well with higher priced high street ones).
It is lightweight and comfortable and fits very well and keeps the sun off my emerging scalp!
My initial views was the hat looked well made, fit well and very stylable.

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.

Beautiful hat, fits perfectly! I have been longing to buy a panama for some considerable tiime and have always been put off by negative reviews regarding sizing. A few days ago I decided to bite the bullet and go for it, I didn't have to wait long for it to arrive which was good as I was a little anxious - unnecessary as it turned out as it's absolutely fabulous in every respect. Many thanks to Amazon for the speedy dispatch and to Hermes who delivered the day before the estimated arrival date. To anyone who finds themselves in a sizing quandary, my advice is to read and follow the instructions for measuring your head size properly and you should be fine.

2013 will be remembered for many things, most of them sporting and weather related and it was indeed both of these which led me to the purchase of this hat. The 1st Ashes Test match in Trent Bridge saw many sun burnt individuals. Fortunately I was not one of them.

I made the decision to progress from baseball hat to Panama (from boy to man) rather late in the preceding days, but after a short email communication delivery was made in time. The hat, true to its description folds up brilliantly and survived not only the ensuing 5 hour trip from Cardiff to Nottingham (not much sun at 5am to precipitate the donning of such a gentlemanly hat); but also the journey to Northampton and then a round trip to the Rolling Stones in Hyde Park.

Several months later and the hat still looks like it did when I eagerly unopened the package.

A great product from a great company. I would beseech everyone to get one (either make it a present to yourself, or put it on the Christmas list). My wife has already stolen mine several times, having been let down by cheap 'festival-esque' panama hats.

Excellent quality, surprisingly light weight and cool. Would definitely recommend. Sadly the style didn't suit me so I reluctantly returned it.

Looked OK - BUT label showed as 61 - measured 63.5. The description stated info as to rolling & care were included - nothing there - plain white box without a note. Most disappointing. Returned.

This might be the one. Bought a couple previously, same size, that haven't fitted. This one is on the ball and comes with great care instructions. And if you do fancy folding/rolling what is essentially a fairly expensive hat, the instructions cover that too. Came beautifully boxed fully formed. If you buy one in a tube, expect it to look like something out of a comedy film. You will never get this. I'd love to see the one they sell at twice the price...

I have a large head and was apprehensive the hat would be too tight, but it is a perfect fit and will be great to keep my head cool and protected whilst watching cricket in the sunshine.
