Determining your hat size is quick and easy. All you need is some sort of tape measure or string that can be measured. You can also watch our video that shows how we measure hat size.
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.

I am in sunny climate most of year and am consciences about protection from sun. I wear a hat all year round ... a felt hat in the winter and straw in the rest of the year. I have switched from a San Francisco hat co to Ultrafino a couple of years ago looking for a vented straw. The Stetson Outback is perfect. Looks like a Panama but keeps me much cooler. I do modify it some... snip off the chin strap and add an Ultrafino flowered hat band and I am set for the beach or ElPaso hot spots!
The hat was just a little too big & they sent me inserts to make it just right... Ultrafino went the extra mile
after I received my hat - I saw the exact same hat for sale for $44 less than I paid you - I expressed my concern and was told to send it back but I liked the hat and asked for the money instead - never heard anything so my response is no more business with your company - russ
Looking for new sun hat that looked great. The Stetson Outback was just what I was looking for. Had great online with selecting the right size. Seem to be a good fit. Hoping it does not stretch through repeated wear. The hat does look great and comfortable. This is my 2nd purchase from Ultrafino. I highly recommend Ultrafino.
It's a very nice hat. The mediocre rating is for the webstore description. The color of the hat delivered is much more bleached (whiter) than pictured. That's not necessarily a bad thing. A whiter hat will be cooler in the sun. I was expecting a more taupe shade as pictured.
The hat pictured in the website sports an elongated teardrop crease. The hat delivered has a center dent crease with a wide front and quarter creases in the sides. Again, there is nothing wrong with this. It is just a matter of style. The center dent is probably a more durable crease if you are rough with handling your hats. I personally prefer a teardrop crease. A teardrop crown is, in my opinion, a little more stylish, has a tighter pinch, and shows off the hatter's skill. The website takes your exact hat size for your order which may lead you to believe you are buying a sized hat with a sized leather sweatband. While there is no claim of a leather sweatband, the hat is supplied with a stretchy fabric sweatband in S, M, & L, sizes. Not a big deal and no misrepresentation here, but at it's pricepoint, you are starting to find fine hats fitted to your exact size.
Another minor difference between the hat pictured and the model shipped is the width of the ventilated area around the crown. The vented area extends downward almost to the brim on the hat I received. The hat pictured has a solid crown up to a height of about 1" above the brim. The one pictured will offer a little stronger brim. The one I received will provide a little more airflow.
Overall, still a nice hat, just a slightly different hat than the one pictured.
