The perfect Panama
Posted by Mary Herman on 16th Feb 2017
Bought as a gift for my husband it was a perfect fit and looks great. Very helpful lady at the Panama Hat Company helped me make a decision on size. Altogether a good experience.

Top Hat For Summer
Posted by Unknown on 7th Aug 2016
Having bought the hat it has been on an extensive Summer Holiday in a Tent in Cornwall. It passed the "Wind Test" with (un-)flying colours and managed to stay on my head during a force 4 blow. Light and airy when the sun comes out and I recommend this Panama.

A lovely hat and very helpful service when it came to arranging for my own ribbon to be fitted.
Hats off the Panamahats

This is my second folding panama hat. The first from elsewhere failed to maintain its shape after a few folds, in fact it came apart at the front. The new Brisa has yet to be tested in a forthcoming trip to India. It needs to be folded quite tightly to fit in the travelling tube, so I hope it can survive the journey.
The purchase process was quite straightforward, and although slightly too large, I decided to keep it because the next size down would be too tight and might have given me headaches.
Quality seems ok for the price paid.
Great hat, great company

Looked around for a foldable Panama and this hat seemed the best quality hat for the money I wanted to pay as I didn't want to spend hundreds for an occasional hat (because of our rubbish weather). Firstly I wasn't disappointed with the quality as in my opinion its good value/quality and a great hat, secondly an excellent delivery time especially as I had ordered the wrong size so the replacement was sent with the same efficient service so all in all if you are considering a purchase from this company I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Superb hat, great fit!

Arrived promptly and very well packed, this hat is a delicious white colour and an excellent fit. Tightly woven with a fine band and bow I was delighted and look forward to showing it off in Malta next week. Thank you.

I bought this hat for my husband who cannot go in the sun, it fits beautifully and looks great, lets see over time if it packs as well as advertised and whether it keeps the color with sun creams etc, which you obviously need to use. An interesting project, we have tried every hat over the years so hoping for the price that it will come unto expectations.

great hat and the exchange to a smaller hat was fast and efficient.
