Do you have a favorite hat whose crown has begun to tear? Or do you have a hat you would wish to protect from wear and tear?
Try our crown repair strips for repairing and protecting the crowns of straw hats. The strips are 100% acid-free canvas and easy to apply, just dip the strip in water and mold it to the shape of your crown. Once the strip dries, it will harden and create a permanent patch, hiding and preventing any further tear.
For large tears between 1"-2", use the D-strip. The d-strip is slightly harder to apply. For most small tears and general protection, the V-strip is sufficient and easier to use.
3 Strips included per unit.
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.
Our brimmed hats are shipped in a specialty shipping box designed to protect the crown and brim during transit. Note, we do not recommend this box for long term storage, rather consider purchasing our hatbox for proper storage.
We offer complimentary standard shipping for U.S. orders over $150

Repaired Panama hat bought in Cuenca, Ecuador and a rustic straw hat bought in Panama. Strips were simple easy to use and effective.
It worked well, .cause i didn't give up...better instructions could have helped..took 7 or 8 minutes to seat properly. I imagine a hernia mesh surgeon could make a easy job of fitting one..lol.next time I might cut or splice to fit easier..it did stick well when allowed to dry overnite..I think they should make a 2 pack with one of each instead of s 3 pack of same ones or maybe start making them in different shapes..like a 8bunch square..
simple and easy to use
I can now use with pride my old quality Panama, which I inherited from my grandfather who bought it in Equador long time ago.
It repaired one of my favorite straw hats. Some day I may need a new one!
Product worked perfectly! It took me two tries as I had not done the first time properly. Once I figured out my error the "Viola!" perfect fit and repair.
