Madewell x Biltmore® Panama Hat

Madewell x Biltmore® Panama Hat is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 28.
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 Panama Hat I've been looking for a perfect panama hat and this is it! It's perfect and chic! I have an average sized head and the s/m is perfect.

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 2 out of 5 by from Looks great but doesn't stay on! I'd been eyeing this hat for a long time and was happy to get it on sale. The style and fit is great, it's flattering on me and I can see it being flattering on many others. I went with the smaller size (S/M) and it fit well (not roomy but not tight). For reference, I'm a size M in rag & bone fedoras. The quality of the straw is pretty decent, lightweight but not too delicate to scuff. The part that makes this hat rather unwearable is the fact that it flies right off of my head even when there's no wind and I'm just walking... at normal speed or slower. Though I wanted to wear it, I found myself never reaching for it because I don't want to walk around with a hand on my head at all times just to keep this pretty hat from flying away :( Would LOVE if this hat would be reissued with this resolved!!!
