You love the countryside, you love the calmness and serenity in the quietness that cannot be found in the city. The rambler is here to accompany you on long walks in the country Sun. Made from Toquilla straw and infused with our high-quality stiffener to increase durability while working on the ranch.
The Rambler is a genuine Panama hat fully hand-woven in Ecuador. We designed it with a very lightweight construction while capturing the classic teardrop shape at the top of the crown. Each hatband is handcrafted to fit the hat perfectly. The black, khaki, camo, and copper bands are made with high-quality material that matches the stylish look of the hat. The leather band is made of a smooth premium material which gives the hat an entirely new appearance.
Material: 100% Toquilla Straw
Brim: 3 1/4" fixed
Crown: 4 1/8" teardrop
Hatband: 1 5/8" cotton or 1 1/8" leather
Handwoven in Ecuador. Hand-finished in the US. Measurements are approximate, this is a handwoven product and actual measurement may slightly vary.

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.
* Ultrafino does not assume responsibility for damage to the product resulting from alternative use or care that is not compliant with the instructions provided here.
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 bought this as a gift for my sister, after searching several sites and considering several styles. We were both quite pleased with the quality of this Rambler, as well as the fit and how good she looks in it. I was also pleased with the updates and personal I received in response to my inquires. This was my first purchase here, but not the last. Thank you!
This is a premium product, that i will recomend to any one, who is looking for a comfortable well made hat.
Well made light weight
This hat is suberbly made. The fit was just right.
The color s a bit on the white side. The coating, though perfectly even, made a stiff texture I didn t expect.from a Panama hat.
Mind you, this way, the hat is more likely to stay on head rather than flying off in the wind/
I love the Rambler. The fit was perfect and it looks great.
I expected a good fedora variant, a truly handsome (copper) band, and a near-perfect fit. That’s what I got, and I got it on time in fine condition. Thanks. I’ll continue to browse your site before I check out others. I do have three wovens straight from Montecristi; so I order against a benchmark. You guys are good.
