Which size should I get?
If you're not sure of your head size or hat size please measure the circumference of your head and review the sizing chart on each page.

How do I measure for a hat?
With a measuring tape measure the circumference of your head. Place tape across forehead above ears and eyebrows. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.

What if my hat is a little loose?
If your hat is a bit too loose you can purchase sizing tape to adjust the fit of your hat. We use 3/4" poly foam weather seal which is available at any hardware store. You can use a strip on the front and back of the hat as needed. Place it under the sweatband and test for sizing. If it feels good, peel to reveal the tape and make it permanent.

How do I clean my hat?
Many spots and stains can be removed with a hand held gum eraser. You can spot clean your hat with a brush or damp rag. If needed you can use a mild liquid soap.

How should I pack my hat for travel?
Place hat in suitcase with clothing items stuffed inside and around brim. These hats don't roll up but they are very pliable and even when bent they bounce back.

What if my hat loses its shape?
Palm is very pliable and you can reshape your brim if it becomes flat after laying brim down for a long period of time. Simply spritz with water and bend to desired shape and let dry. You can also totally reshape your brim. For instance the Gardener Hat brim can be curled up on the sides. Spritz with water, secure with clothespins, and dry for a more western look. You can also use a steam iron on low to medium heat and lightly press into shape.

How should I store my hat?
Hang your hat on a peg, hat form, or flat with brim side up.

What if my hat gets wet?
They float so if you drop your hat in the water while canoeing just pick it up and let dry. Of course standing under a waterfall will destroy the shape of your hat! Light rain won't affect the hat. Hang to dry.

Will your hats protect me from the sun?
In October of 2003 Tula hats were tested at California Polytechnic State University using the Australian/New Zealand Class System. This test method is used to determine the ultraviolet radiation blocked or transmitted by textiles. Tula Hats test results were excellent with 0% UVA, 0% UVB transmittance and they were given the highest rating of UPF 50+.

From California Polytechnic State University Textile Research and Testing Laboratory: "The brim area of these hats is excellent, in fact we have never tested anything with 0% transmittance. Congratulations on this protection!"

Tula Hats will now include a hang-tag on each hat that states that the brim area is rated UPF50+ Excellent Protection. The back of the tag will include other sun protection tips such as the use of sunglasses and sun block to further protect the skin from damaging rays.
