Packable Fedora -
By: RichardR from Kaneohe, HI
This is my 3rd hat from Orvis, all of great quality and style. The fedora is no exception. I needed if for the really hot summer days. It fit perfectly when I got it, it is very stylish and holds its shape nicely. I like the strap which can also be used to shape the hat; however, I like the original shape, which it holds well. Great hat.
Really Like This Hat -
I really like this hat. It is stylish and packable. The way they designed it to keep the string out of the way when not it use is very clever. The only downside is that it is heavier and hotter then a hat made from real straw. Still it is a good traded-off to have the hat nearly indestructible.
Not Straw But Just Right -
By: GeoP from Midwest
This is not a small hat as it has a good brim for sun, it is not a straw hat. From the point of view of a guy who wears hats and dress hats year round, this is a perfect hat for the day that it may rain because it is a plastic straw that is not affected by rain, sweat or being crunched. It is not a fancy straw hat - it is not the most breathable hat - but it fits perfectly in the niche of a solid hat that is not affected like a real straw.

This hat has all of the features I was looking for in a Summer hat: attractive, adjustable band, chin strap, packable, medium brim. It's also washable and I've gotten several compliments when I've worn it!

We haven't used it yet, but I gave it to my husband for a gift and it looks and fits like it will be perfect for traveling.
Great Hat fo the Beach or Backyard -
By: DocTFB from Albany, NY
This hat is elegant and casual. Take your pick. It packs well and the 3 inch brim provides plenty of protection from the sun. The chin strap is essential for times on windy beaches.
on second thought -
By: olderguysrule from Minnesota
I purchased this fedora last fall. Didn't really like it at first. The brim seems a bit big. I would have given it maybe 3 stars last fall. Then, I wore it a few times this spring, and one day I picked it up and the brim had been turned up all the way around. This gave it a completely new look. That I do like. The quality is typical orvis, that being very good. So my 3 star rating gets changed to a 5 star. It seems to be indestructible.
