Ultimate Guide to Crushable Hats

Welcome to our guide on crushable hats and the best ways to pack them for your travels. Let's dive in.

What are crushable hats?

A crushable hat refers to a type of hat designed to retain its shape even after being compressed or folded. These hats are typically made from materials that are flexible and resilient, such as certain types of wool felt, straw, or cotton. Crushable hats are ideal for travellers or people on the go because they can be easily packed into luggage or bags without the worry of permanent creasing or damage.

What styles are packable

Within our signature felt hat range, the packability depends on the softness rating of the style. We categorize them into three tiers of stiffness: soft, semi-soft, and rigid. For example, our 'William' is super soft and highly packable, 'Calloway' is semi-soft with a flexible brim but a stiffer crown, and 'Andy' is rigid, known for its wide, flat brim and taller crown which needs stiffness to maintain its shape. We recommend packing only the soft crafted styles; for others we recommend carry clip method which we have a guide on as well.
