A hat worthy of accompanying you through the desert and through scorching heat. The Sahara is a durable Panama hat that features a moderately stiff body and a reinforced crown. The hat is finished with a chevron pattern leather hatband. 100% Handwoven toquilla straw.

Material: 100% Toquilla straw
Brim: 2 1/2"
Climate: Sun

If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size. A looser fit is recommended as you can use hat size reducer tape to help nail the perfect fit.

Included with this hat:

1 Paul Lashton Protect & Repair Crown Insert with Adhesive Backing

  • The easiest 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 of the crown (which you shouldn't do) or from simple wear and tear. This insert is designed to protect and prevent cracking of the crown. Simply peel and stick onto the inner crown of your hat. Made with an adhesive backing that’s been formulated to last a long time and not leave behind any adhesive if chosen to remove.

2 Hat Size Reducer Strips 4”

  • Have a hat that fits a little too loose on your head? Use a size reducer strip to easily give your hat a more snug and perfect fit! Just peel the back from the adhesive and stick it behind the sweatband of the hat. With the use of two strips, your hat can be reduced to about 1/2 of a size!

Rituals have a purpose. To care for your Ultrafino hat, follow these simple step-by-step tips:

1. To maintain its shape, lift the hat using both the front and back brim with both hands. Do not take the hat from the dome.

2. Avoid hanging the hat always on the same side.

3. To remove dust, keep the straw elastic or remove small stains from the straw, apply PAUL LASHTON STRAW HAT CLEANING KIT on the affected area. Avoiding the engraved gold Ultrafino logo.

4. If the hat gets wet, dab it with a soft cloth and let it dry in a ventilated place away from direct light and heat, for better protection of your Panama hat add PAUL LASHTON STRAW HAT REPELLENT KIT.

5. If the hat is rollable, do not leave it folded for more than 48 hours. Keep the hat away from direct light, humidity, and heat.

6. If you need to re-shape or to preserve the shape of the Panama straw hat use PAUL LASHTON PREMIUM STRAW HAT STIFFENER KIT.

Beautiful product...

The hat is beautiful, very well made, impeccable workmanship and top quality material. I will certainly buy other models.

Styling for Zoom meeting

This Sahara style hat was perfect for the occasions I have been wearing it. The weave and forming were tight. The hat band spacers provided enabled me a tailored fit and I have received numerous compliments. When my CV-19 forced Zoom meetings come on line I am there sporting my new hat. Have not had a meeting without a comment. Thanks

Seems Like A Great Hat

I just received it and have only worn it once - all indications are that this is a great hat. I’ll probably reserve it’s use for more formal occasions such as outdoor weddings, receptions, family dinners and the like as I have many less formal hats. So far, very happy with my purchase - it’s a great looking hat!

Awesome hat!

I really love this hat. I'd been searching for one for a long time and was frustrated because of ill-fitting hats and lack of quality. Ultrafino solved all of that. The 7 1/8 fits me perfectly and the quality of this hat is on the high end. My wife and are so intrigued with the back story that we're planning a trip to Cuenca for the holidays.

Another Nice Hat

This is my second Panama from Ultrafino (the first being their “Hand Finished” model.) Both are light and comfortable, great for sun protection, and really breathable. The weave is tight enough to be really nice looking but loose enough to let the air pass through. Very happy with both. Think I’ll add their Malta Sienna hat for a trifecta! Thanks Ultrafino!
