Just like shopping in Equador -
By: Ayhozer from California
Great hat ..Great style...Great price. I could not have done better if I were in Equador. As always, Orvis is at it's prime with superior service and products. My wife thinks this is the best had I own. I agree !
Great Hat -
By: MOFlyFisher from Neosho, MO
I ordered this hat based on the description on the website. When it arrived I tried it on and it was a perfect fit. The quality of the material and the weave was more then I expected. Great Hat!!
Teddy Roosevelt Would Be Proud -
By: sgoregon from Portland, OR
During a trip to visit the ongoing construction of the Panama Canal in 1904, President Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt was photographed wearing a "Panama" straw hat, which did wonders in spreading the allure of the straw hat to American hat wearers. This "Teddy" straw hat from Orvis is a beautiful hat! I am particularly fond of wide brims (3"+) and this hat offers the great sun protection that comes with a wider brim. Very well constructed and handsome. I am 100% pleased with this, my second hat purchased from Orvis. FYI, my head measures appx. 22 9/16 in. and the Medium fit like a glove.
Quality vs Price - Very Good to Excellent -
Perhaps the only reason I select Orvis, when I go to my area retail store. Shopping on line is a great experience and my first with Orvis. My Straw hat was a great pick up online and the service was wonderful, The hat was a birthday gift , for an all around hat guy and straw lover. The wife likes it too.
Not up to Orvis standards -
By: DoodlebugWeish from Norfolk, VA
I order this hat, and it arrived with the hatband badly wrinkled, so I arranged to return and ordered another. It arrived with the same problem. I should think that Orvis might have the equipment to steam press and correct this before shipping out. (?) The return situation was handled with your usual kind help and professionalism.
Pamama hat at it's best -
By: rjung9 from Albuquerque, NM
Just purchased this hat as a result of a health issue (skin cancer on ear). In New Mexico everyone should wear a hat! I have several hats and like many things I purchase do my research. This hat is very high quality and made with quality straw in Ecuador like all of the best Pamama hats. The straw is soft and flexible but still keeps it's shape nicely. You will love the feel of this hat! Many straw hats feel like plastic. The top is reinforced for better wear...a nice touch. The hat shape of the brim gives great coverage from the sun which is what I was looking for. However, the brim is 3 1/2 inches wide which some folks may think is wide for this style hat. This would be the perfect hat for golf, yard or travel.
Nice Panama Hat -
By: Driftwood from San Diego, Cal. and Honduras
I was looking for a good looking Panama with a three inch brim, brown ribbon hatband. This very nice hat filled the bill perfectly and at a fair price. Unfortunately, it wasn't at all durable. It cracked along the crown crease within a couple of months despite good care. I never wore it in the field. The hat was made of poor quality, overly dry straw, I believe. Not up to Orvis standards. I bought mine in late 2010 or early 2011 as I recall. l hope Orvis is using better quality straw by now because I need another nice Panama..

Ever since I got a bad sunburn on my cranium nine years ago, I wear hats when going out. I found this gem– the Teddy Panama Straw hat– at an Orvis store in Scottsdale, AZ last year, and it's become my favorite for hot weather. Perfect fit. Perfect brim. Perfect style.

I was about to email you to express my total satisfaction in doing business with you but then I received this request for a review. The hat is perfect - the nicest Panama I have seen and doing business with you was flawless. Great customer service as is the case with most American retailers. I will certainly recommend Orvis to my friends.
