a really nice panama -

Its picture doesn't do this hat justice. It looks great on the hatrack and even better on my head. The weaving and construction of this hat are first rate. The straw itself actually smells good--the aroma hits you as soon as you open the box. I am a true size 7, and at first the stretch sweatband of the medium felt too tight. After wearing the hat a few times, the band seems to have conformed to my head and now feels fine. Looking forward to wearing this hat for many summers.
good design, weaving was off on brim -
had to return it; regretably, there were several small holes in the weaving of the brim. As for sizing, XL was not right for my head (7 5/8 in). Just didn't fit right. really too bad, since it was a beautiful hat and the price was right
Very nice -

The customer reviews on Orvis were a big reason why I bought this specific hat versus other Orvis hats as the sun gets very hot [in my opinion] here in LA and it fits nice and firmly on my head and looks great - it's a winner.
Great Hot Weather Hat -
By: PapaJim from Caldwell, TX
Texas summers demand well-vented hats. Panama straw is my material of choice but tightly woven Panamas hold heat and promote sweating. This is the only Orvis model this season that features decent ventilation. It also stands out for its CoolMax stretchy inner sweat band to custom-tune the fit. The whole package is well worth its price: comfort and sun protection; style and performance all found together. I wear this hat every day.
No Panama hat -
I have had Panama hats for years. Always looking for replacement. This hat is more like a cowboy hat. Straw is hard not soft as it should be.
Ideal for on the Boat -

What a wonderful Hat for those sunny days on board my Narrowboat! It is absolutley ideal and such a fashion icon as well. It's tall enough to allow the air to circulate, and fits like a glove (no pun intended). I would highly reccoment this hat to anyone with a taste for quality looking for a Hat which is certainly 'Fit for Purpose'
Nice hat -

Really nice hat. Looks great. I have gotten lots of compliments on it. Sized just right for a 7 5/8. Lined crown protects from sun and vents really cool your head.
Lookin' Sooo Cool -

I am a guy who wears an XXL hat. Finding hats that fit is certainly a challenge; finding a hat that fits AND garners compliments, now that a huge challenge. I wear this hat on the golf course and to the occasional garden party. Alas, It hasn't improved my golf game but it does get noticed at those afternoon parties. Now, if would only make me look 10 years younger.

I purchased this hat in May and the sun has barely shone since after such a fantastic April. On the bright side, great quality and fit and on the one day it has been warm lately, was vey comfortable and cool. Quite a different and distinctive style that can be worn with casual as well as more formal attire.
