Looking for a straw hat to block the summer sun? Gotta have the lightweight breathability of an authentic Panama hat? Look no further.
Our Ultimate UPF 50+ Panama Hats™ include features that make sunburn a plague of the past. While not strictly traditional, we're confident you will appreciate these modern updates to the Panama hat. The Ultimate UPF 50+ Panama Hat™ begins - like all genuine Panama hats - with authentic toquilla straw and is hand-woven in Cuenca, Ecuador. Once woven, the process of washing, drying, and softening the fibers takes place in Ecuador. When the hat has been shaped and softened, the handmade shell is shipped to our finishers in the USA where the SolarWeave® sun protection, the Teflon® coating, and a CoolMax® hatband are applied to the hat.
SolarWeave® is a fabric bonded inside the Panama hat's brim and crown. SolarWeave® lining provides 100% UV protection, and only a few US finishers provide it.
We also apply a Teflon coating to the outside of our Ultimate UPF 50+ Panama Hats™. This special finish repels stains and protects the straw from water damage.
The finishing touch to our Ultimate UPF 50+ Panama Hats™ is a CoolMax® hatband, which actually improves the way the Panama hat fits. This soft, elastic material shapes to your head in a way no traditional hatband can. It wicks away moisture and helps keep your head even cooler on steamy summer days.
Sure, we're not finishing these Panama hats the way it's always been done. We think we've actually improved upon perfection. So go ahead, order one today. We stand behind these magnificent straw hats, and in the unlikely event that you don't love your purchase, we'll refund or exchange it - guaranteed.
