Looking to prevent sweat stains while also getting a better fit for your hat? These highly absorbent inserts can easily be applied to any of your hats in seconds! They'll keep sweat from your eyes whether you're wearing your hat for a night of dancing, or relaxing at the beach on a hot day. They can also be used to reduce the size of a hat that fits too large. They're made of a soft, lightweight, and comfortable polyester that can effortlessly be used and replaced with any type of hat, making it a must-have for any hat wearer!
Determining your hat size is quick and easy. All you need is some sort of tape measure or string that can be measured.
Place the tape around your head right above your ear. It should across your mid-forehead, 1/8" above your ear, completely circling your head, and taut.
Then use the chart below to find your 'Label' size. If you are in between sizes choose the next largest size.
Use this chart to determine your Hat Size. We use the fitted row for our products.

The Panama hat is a finely woven hat made out of toquilla palms on Ecuador’s Pacific coast. The finer the weave, the finer the hat. A hat that is considered to be of 'Ultrafino' grade contains at least 600 weaves per square inch and takes about 6 months to make. When the company was started in 2003 the first hat ever sold was an Ultrafino grade Panama Hat. The name Ultrafino had a certain feeling of excitement, uniqueness, and quality. We wanted all of our products to radiate the same feeling of owning an Ultrafino grade hat. And so began Ultrafino Panama Hats.
Ultrafino means ultra-fine in Spanish and it has become the raw definition of the company. Everything we do is aligned to the name. We strive to provide ultra-fine customer service while providing ultra-fine quality hats.

the sweatbands install easily and do the job. If you plan to use them (eg, in a hat for golfing) keep in mind that this sweatband takes up just a bit of room. For me, it made a perfect fit from a hat just a tad large, and when I get a haircut...
The Paul Lashton Sweat stain guard insert installed easily and sized my hat down an 1/8". The material is comfortable. No other description but Worked Perfectly!
The PAUL LASHTON SWEAT STAIN-GUARD INSERT is a quality piece and serves a dual purpose, allowing for a slightly snugger fit and extending the life of the sweatband...
Sweat band is very easy to put in and makes the hat for perfectley
It’s satisfying when a product does what it is supposed to do. But these inserts do even more than that.
Let’s start with what it is supposed to do: Absorb sweat, so that the hat itself does not get stained. It’ll do that. But it also serves as a size reducer. Which a lot of us need. When reduced, the insert makes for a smoother fit than the usual reducing tape does.
Additionally, if you insert it as directed—on the OUTSIDE of the sweatband, the hat is more comfortable to wear. Because the insert is a soft cushion for your head.
These days when so many products on the market fail to live up to what they claim to do, it’s refreshing to find one like this that actually does even more.
