Vented Palm Leaf Hat
With an open braided weave around the crown, this style of our beloved Guatemalan palm leaf hat is even lighter and cooler than the original. Unshaped hats are perfect for customizing to personal preferences. Just submerge your hat in water, shape it to your liking, and let it dry.
- made in Guatemala from palm leaf
- includes a single wrap hatband
- ships unshaped
- 4-inch brim
Please note that these hats are made by hand, so sizes will vary slightly.
FINDING YOUR SIZE
Our Sunbodies are Guatemalan hats, which have a foam-padded cotton twill sweatband that tends to shrink about 1% with heat and moisture. This is about 1/2 of a hat size (1/16" diameter). We recommend buying a Sunbody that is just a little bit loose to allow for this shrinkage, and adjusting the size with the included additional foam strip. This usually means buying one to two sizes larger than you normally wear as you'll see within our sizing chart below.
When checking the size of hats, Sunbody's criterion is that a hat should be at least the size marked on the label. That is, a 7-1/8 should be AT LEAST a 7-1/8 but not as large as a 7-1/4. Sizing will vary slightly, due to the handmade nature of the hats. If you are on the edge or unsure of which to order, size up.
To Determine Your Hat Size:
Measure around your head where you wear your hats in inches (circumference). Use a soft tailor's tape or a piece of string, making sure not to pull tighter than you would like your hat to fit.
Use the following chart to determine your hat size:
|Head Circumference||Normal Hat Size||Recommended Sunbody Hat Size|
|21" to 21-3/8"||6 3/4||6 7/8-7|
|21-3/8" to 21-3/4"||6 7/8||7 - 7 1/8|
|21-3/4" to 22-1/4"||7||7 1/8 - 7 1/4|
|22-1/4" to 22-5/8"||7 1/8||7 1/4 - 7 3/8|
|22-5/8" to 23"||7 1/4||7 3/8 - 7 1/2|
|23" to 23-3/8"||7 3/8||7 1/2 - 7 5/8|
|23-3/8" to 23-3/4"||7 1/2||7 5/8|
