Raffia, one of the best hat materials that pack well, is a very durable straw that comes from a Raffia palm, which can be found in Africa, Madagascar, Central & South America. Raffia hats tend to pack well because the fibers have very good memory once they’ve been formed into the hat style. Even if the hat in question has been crushed and pressed in a suitcase for a long trip, working around the edges with your fingers or applying a little steam with this process will make the hat look brand new. So, it is advisable for you to equip a raffia hat in your travels.

The following are some spacial materials easy to retain shape. Many other materials can pack well. However, this is not a comprehensive list, but does include many materials we have found.

We all know that the softer the hat, the easier it is to pack and ensure you won’t damage it. Cotton hats like the Scala-Canvas Upbrim and bucket or booney hats Kooringal-Walkabout Booney are typically styles you can pack and not have to worry about. If done correctly, you should have very few wrinkles in your hat, but you can always steam these out as well!
