This is the packable Panama driving cap that unfolds back to its original shape when unpacked. It is made in Ecuador from bleached leaves of the Toquilla palm, the traditional plant fiber used to make Panama hats since they were first discovered by North Americans in the early 1900s during construction of the Panama Canal. Ideal for travel, it can be packed into suitcases or squeezed flat for between-seat storage; the fibers' unique Brisa weave pattern allows the cap to unfold back to its original shape with no warping. The weave also allows air to circulate, keeping you cool while driving while offering sun protection. Natural color. Sizes S (hat size 6 7/8-7; head circumference 22"), M (7-7 1/8; 22 1/4-22 3/8"), L (7 1/4-7 3/8; 22 1/2-23 1/4"), and XL (7 1/2-7 5/8; 23 1/2-24"). (1 oz.)

How To Determine Your Hat Size
To get the proper fit in a hat, we recommend that you measure your head to determine your proper hat size.
How to Measure Your Head
- Use a good quality tape measure, such as those used for sewing, to achieve the most accurate measurement.
- Wrap the measuring tape around your head. The tape should be placed where you want the hat to rest, usually 1/8-inch to 1/2-inch above the top of your ears. For the best-looking and most comfortable fit, the bottom of the tape should touch your eyebrows while positioned straight around your head. Don't pull the tape too snugly or your hat will fit that tightly.
- Once you've positioned the tape exactly where you want it, measure to the nearest one-eighth inch, or three millimeters.
- Measure your head a second and third time to ensure accuracy.
