    The wide rim and its light weight greatly compliments its ability to pack rolled up. Love it!

    Does What It Says It Will Do - 11/8/2015
    By: from Schoharie, NY

    I don't wear brimmed hats often so when I do, I need them to meet a specific need. When I, an upstate New Yorker, visit the Caribbean in February, I need a hat that protects from the sun while on the beach and which packs to travel since it's frigid for the airport ride. This hat is not warm, nor does it claim to be. This hat does protect from the sun. As well, it folds up for packing. These are the specific needs. Done and done. Oh yeah, looks dapper, as well. Downright jaunty on the walk to Marigot.

    Terrific hat - 10/29/2015

    My husband has one of these so I borrowed it to take our grands to the park. It was so lightweight and comfortable that I came home and measured and ordered one for myself!

    Practical and Handsome - 10/2/2015
    By: from Illinois

    I recently bought the packable fedora and now I wear it all the time. The chin strap is handy for windy occasions. When it isn’t needed there’s a handy catch on the back of the crown that keeps it out of the way and mostly out of sight. The hat band is adjustable. The brim is unusually large, about 3 1/8 inch wide, and it blocks UV as well as visible light. My wife thinks it’s a handsome fedora. I like that it’s waterproof and that it folds nicely into my luggage. I give it five stars and a thumbs up.

    Nice fabric - 9/8/2015
    By: from Sarasota FL

    I used my head measurement to order a medium, but it was too big, and there are no small available until January 2016! I tried the adjustable strap on outside of hat dome, but it changes the shape of the brim :-( The fabric is great that it is washable (haven't tried that yet , but am trusting it will wash OK!)

    Prefer the older style - 8/28/2015
    By: from Athens, GR

    Purchased recently my second Fedora, few years after my first one. Although was more or less the same quality, for some reason the brim was a little wider than the old one, which makes it look a bit funny wearing it. I personally, do not feel "comfortable " in it. Would gladly change it.

Here at Orvis, we put our travel clothing and luggage to the real-life test every day. Our Orvis Travel staff and product developers log thousands of miles a year to bring you the very best, most authentic travel experiences and gear.

With new airline regulations and fees, it’s more important than ever to pack wisely. We asked our own Dave Parker -- Managing Director of our in-house travel agency – for tips on how to pack to ensure you get the most out of your travels:

  1. Cotton/synthetic-blend fabrics are easy to wash and dry on the road.  If laundry service is a given, our pure cotton wrinkle-resistant shirts are a great choice for travel too. If you pack enough shirts for three days, you have enough for a week.  Also, plan to buy a shirt or two at your destination. It's one way to take home a practical souvenir.
  2. Choose a bag made of ballistic polyester cloth. They are strong, yet light in weight. If you start with a heavy bag, it's all downhill from there.
  3. Think about colour schemes when you pack. Make sure everything you bring is in the same palette, so it all matches.
  4. Think layers. Instead of a single heavy jacket, for example, take light layers that can be added and subtracted according to the weather. For cool climes, take a base layer of merino wool, then a synthetic/cotton-blend shirt, a fleece vest, and then an outer layer shell to stop rain and wind.  For cold climates, use a warmer base layer and a thicker fleece with long sleeves.
  5. Ship ahead. It sounds extravagant, but if you're going to a single place where you need a lot of gear (e.g., waders, fly rods, skis, etc.), it’s wise to ship it. Shipping services have good tracking systems, and you'll know where your bag is ahead of time. (I'm doing this for an Alaska trip in August. Who wants to carry waders?)
  6. Think ounces. Take the smallest container/amount of toiletries possible, especially if you can replenish at your destination. There’s no need to take 16 oz. of shampoo for a one-week trip. Get a couple of small, refillable plastic bottles, and fill them at home before you go.
  7. Stay organised. Use polyester bags or large, clear freezer bags to compartmentalise. Put all the socks in one bag, etc. Knowing what you have helps you avoid over-packing.
  8. Download a book to your mp3 player.
  9. Unless you're a professional photographer, take the smallest digital camera you can. The picture quality will still be excellent.
  10. Wear your biggest/heaviest shoes on the plane and pack the lighter ones.
  11. Don't forget to ask about rental gear before you pack. Some fishing lodges have everything you need, especially if they're Orvis-endorsed.
