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.

I love this hat in hot weather. It help keep my head cool and it looks cool. The lighter color goes perfectly with anything. I dropped into the store when on a trip to Seattle and was welcomed with awesome service. I highly recommend this store to anyone looking for that perfect Panama Hat. The owners are from Ecuador and have a good selection.
Very nice looking hat but size is slightly off. I was concerned that the correct size might be a little small, but it was a shade to big. I just placed a piece of felt under the inside band and the fit was fine.
Great hat. Love the vents. Breeze goes right through it. Looks cool.
This hat is wonderful and my husband was so please with it. Very stylish, and very comfortable. He was very happy with it.
This is the best hat I have ever had for the hot Texas summers! The vents really keep you cool.
My recent purchase of balboa fedora was a smart decision. The vented crown really helps air flow making it a cool, light, well made summer hat. Looks great with a suit or shorts. Bought 2 additional Panama straw hats from ultrafino, I was so pleased
