Paul Lashton Protect & Repair Crown Inserts with Adhesive Backing

Off White

Premium Patch Adhesive Crown Repair Inserts For Panama Straw Hats.

The easiest and most affordable way to protect your prized hat. If you have owned a straw hat for long enough, you've probably discovered that over time the crown of the hat can begin to crack. This can be from frequent pinching (which you shouldn't do) or from simple wear and tear. At Ultrafino we've known for a while that this issue can cause some heartbreak, imagine having your thousand dollar Montecristi crack, so we designed what we believe to be the best crown inserts to either protect and prevent the straw from cracking or if it has already cracked, to patch and prevent further cracking.

Made with a premium adhesive backing, just peel and stick into the inner crown of any straw or Panama hat. The adhesive we have chosen to use is formulated to last a long time and not leave behind any adhesive if you chose to remove it. This is perfect for prized collectors' hats if you ever choose to resell or gift them.

Please note: These insert strips do not contain any stiffener, which is great if you are sensitive to stiffening chemicals. However, if you are looking to also stiffen the crown please see our other crown repair strips that do contain water-activated stiffener.

3 Inserts included per unit.

Great product just what I needed for my "favorite" Panama and a couple to protect my newest one as well. You will be glad you brought.

Great accessory

This product is well made and well conceived. The fit is good and it protects my Panama hat from damage great product I would recommend to other hat wearers.

Another Terrific Product

I love the hats I have purchased from Ultrafino and I am so pleased they are now selling products such as the crown inserts which will allow me to extend the life of my beloved panama hats. Cheers and hats off to Ultrafino.

Nice product

Works very well to mend split in crown. Wish I hadn't tried to fix it with glue first
