    This is a follow up to my initial very positive review of the folder I bought a few months ago. Being very pleased with the appearance and fit I was anxious about folding it into its tube. As a previous reviewer said - it is an act of faith! However I need not have worried as the hat folded well for a recent trip to Sicily and emerged as good as ever after a little straightening and an overnight rest.

    Splendid hat and great service

    Posted by Edward Holt on 26th Feb 2017

    I wanted a folding panama for travelling and liked the Panama Hat Company's website. A couple of queries relating to size and weave were dealt with by a very pleasant and helpful lady and my splendid hat arrived a couple of days later. The fit and quality are first rate.

    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

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Feb 2016

    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.
