Madewell x Biltmore® Panama Hat

Madewell x Biltmore® Panama Hat is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from MASSIVE head review I'm reviewing the size of a couple Madewell hats. I have a MASSIVE HEAD and hats normally don't fit me at all. Very pleased to discover that this hat kinda sorta almost fully fits my head, which is okay for a fedora. In comparison to some others, it is smaller than the M/L straw pom pom fedora (which fits my head well), and bigger than M/L straw packable hat (which doesn't fit my head). MADEWELL, PLEASE KEEP IT UP WITH BIG HEAD HATS. THERE ARE SO MANY WOMEN OUT THERE WHO WANT THEM!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look on me, but the hat is too large and will blow off my head with a gust of wind. Love the look on me, but will return it to store in Easton sometime soon. Wish the hat advertised as small/med was smaller. I really regret returning it. What a stylish "fedora".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!! I've been searching for a great straw hat for 2 years and I'm so glad I found this one!! The fit is great (I got the S/M, even though I'm usually a M/L in hats) and the brim is just the perfect width...most panama hats I was finding had brims that were too wide, dwarfing my face. The quality is sturdy, and I can tell this will last a long time with the right care. Thanks Madewell!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Panama Hat! I was ready to invest in a sturdy, quality Panama hat for my honeymoon this summer and was so glad I stumbled upon Madewell's. It's constructed well and fits perfectly on my head, not too tight, not too loose (I ordered the M/L, and have a pretty average sized head.) I cannot wait to wear it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super classy and comfortable I just wore this hat on a trip to a warmer place, and it garnered lots of compliments and one "girl, you wear that hat" which I took as a compliment. I'm not usually a hat person, so I've never worn a hat that fits this well-- it has a little stretch to it and just perches above the ears. No hat hair! On really windy days, I did have this blow off my head a couple of times. But that's to be expected with a lightweight, brimmed hat. The breeze that made it through the straw to cool my head more than compensated. One more reason to hope that summer gets here soon...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sun protection and style I'm very fair and going out in the sun has always resulted in sunburns, no matter how much SPF I used. I was in the market for a hat that I could wear outside during the summer months to keep my face/neck protected, but still look great. This fit the bill perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hat-tastic!!! I missed out on this hat last year and vowed I'd purchase this year. However, it sold out again! But lucky me, I went to look again and there it was! I jumped on it along with a button down cotton shirt everyone was raving about. They were both on sale too! The hat came a little bent. I wish they sent it with a shape box/ hat box. But that didn't stop me from trying it on and it fit perfectly! I got medium/large and it was just right with a little room. You know when you wear hats your head tends to swell throughout the day or maybe that's just me:) Anywho, very happy with my purchase can't wait to wear next spring/summer!
