Packable Hats - hats that bounce back into shape.

Hats that you can pack.  What is better than a classic sun hat that goes modern with the ability to become packable, crushable, and often times washable?  Get protection from the sun with a truly functional hat that can be condensed when packing for a trip.  You can even find long brim hats that offer good sun protection that are crushable when needed to fit into a bag.

The purpose of this style of hat is obviously to help free up precious space in you handbag, suitcase, travel bag, etc.  With an excursion-ready travel hat men or women are ready for an adventure. These often stylish hats are typically constructed from collapsible materials that allow you to easily fold them down into your luggage, purse or carry-on without compromising the hat’s structure or shape.  That is the key element to a true travel hat.  Not only must it fold down well, it is critical that it is able to regain its original shape.

A packable hat is the perfect partner for sun-drenched destinations both near and far.  Find a comfortable, no-fuss brimmed sun hat that retains its shape after packing down into the corner of your carry-on bag.

Packable hats are also sometimes refered to as travel hats.

Did you know that samurai clothing had a type of travel hat?

A kasa is any of several sorts of traditional hats of Japan. Some of the kasa hats are Amigasa, Jingasa, Sugegasa, Takuhatsugasa and Sandogasa. Amigasa is a traditional straw hat used in some Japanese folk dances. When preceded by a word specifying the type of hat, the word becomes gasa as in the jingasa (war hat). One kind of kasa (Takuhatsugasa) for Buddhist monks is made overlarge, in a bowl or mushroom shape and is made from woven rice straw. It does not come to a point like a rice farmer's hat, nor ride high on the head like a samurai's traveling hat. It is just a big hat covering the upper half to two thirds of the face.
