Please read the instructions below this size chart before ordering. We have indicated whether this size chart uses body or garment measurements in the notes below the size chart. Allow 1cm variance for all garment measurements (as an example a 56cm garment measurement has a variance of 55-57cm. Please factor that into deciding on the size to order.)
To select cm (cm) or inches (in") please see the top left corner of the size chart table.

How to order the correct size Rufiji™ or Mara&Meru™ hat:
• To work out which hat will give you the most comfortable fit, simply measure your head at the fullest part where your hat will sit, which will be just above your ears. Please use this measurement to determine the size above.
• Please note that only our leather hats will have a very small amount of stretch (approximately 1cm).
• As children's heads grow faster than their bodies, this size chart also applies to boys and girls.
• UK and US hat sizes given below are our approximates of the equivalent hat size in each country. Please leave the size chart in "cm" rather than "inches" to view these correctly.
|UK Size Hat||Up to size 7||Up to size 71⁄4||Up to size 73⁄4|
|US Size Hat||Up to size 71⁄8||Up to size 73⁄8||Up to size 77⁄8|

A wide-brimmed hat is a safari essential for protection from the sun. Get the assurance of protection in a hat that elevates the look of your safari and every day wardrobe with this unisex panama hat.
The sun's rays can have a harmful effect on your skin - and the sun in Africa can be especially harsh, which is why we recommend a wide-brimmed hat as a safari essential. Keep your face and neck protected with this full-brimmed hat on game drives, walking safaris, and around the lodge - and look great at the same time.
The panama hat is an accessory synonymous with global style for both ladies and gentlemen, young and old. Paired with almost any outfit, it is a style staple in tropical and warm-weather destinations. For the fashion-conscious, this unisex panama hat is the easy accessory you will wear on safari and at the beach, but also looks great at the polo, at a tennis match, or on your weekend fishing trip or birding walk.
The Mara&Meru™ Panama Safari Hat has an internal adjustable drawstring to achieve the most comfortable fit for your head and to suit conditions. Together with the drawstring, the detachable leather neck strap with elephant toggle offers added assurance that you won't lose your hat in windy conditions on the back of open game drive vehicles, on boat trips, or on gusty beach days.
You don't have to feel the heat of the sun for damage to be done. Make sun protection part of your daily routine - and integrate it into your travels - to take care of your skin by the pool, on the beach, and for all outdoor activities. On safari and your warm-weather and adventure holidays, this will ensure painful sunburns don't get in the way of making wonderful and exciting memories. Offering SPF50+, this hat is an investment in optimal protection. Pair your hat with our SafariSUN™ sunscreen and technical fabrics with built-in SPF for an holistic approach to sun care.
Product note Please note that the Mara&Meru™ Panama Safari Hat is not squashable or foldable and cannot be packed inside your bag.
*This is the hat is the same as the Rufiji™ Canvas Explorer Safari Hat. We have created a separate product for Women and Men to show gender-specific product images and information.
