Jaxon Hats Panama Working Hat

Panama Working Hat

Top Seller

Bodies hand woven in Ecuador, finished in the USA

Exclusive to Jaxon Hats, the Jaxon Panama Working Hat was designed in California, the hat bodies were hand woven in Ecuador, and the hats were blocked and finished in Massachusetts.

Panama hats are usually a combination of the world reknown material, Panama straw, and high-class traditional styling. We thought, Why not make a Panama hat that is also functional?

This is the result:

  1. A wide brim for better sun protection. (The weavers in Ecuador had to make the hat body with a 6-inch brim so that the finishing in the USA could be done to the correct brim width. This allowed for the underwelt at the brim's edge, cutting of excess material, etc.)
  2. The "Uncrushable Insert" in the crown. We still suggest handling this hat by the brim and not the crown, but the insert protects against cracking by normal wear.
  3. The hat is protected by DuPont Teflon which repels water and other liquid spills.
  4. Our USA manufacturer helped us develop the detachable chincord. On calm days, remove it. On slightly windy days, put the chincord behind your head catching under your hairline. On very windy days, fit under you chin. 2013 model has added grommets in the holes where the hardware attaches.

    "This is the hat I currently wear daily. It serves me exceptionally well." - Fred Belinsky, VHS Founder
