How To Roll A Panama Hat

A Guide To Rolling a Panama Hat for Travel 

 

Please note that not all panama hats can be rolled. Do check first, as trying to roll a panama hat that is not woven for this purpose can irreversibly damage your hat.

Rolling a panama hat is simple, though admittedly it does feel strange to flatten and roll your hat on first go!
The key is to do it gently, and to keep the point of the crown soft (not a sharp point).
