A straw type hat that you can fold but bounces back into shape

Does such a thing exist please? I need to take a hat on holiday with me, and I like straw type ones, rather than cotton ones. But every time I've folded up a hat and packed it into my case, it has become completely misshapen.

What about a Tumi?

I've had a great one for many years now that looks like straw but is made of paper. I think it was from BHS but the most similar one I can find now is this: www.bhs.co.uk/en/bhuk/product/natural-woven-floppy-sun-hat-4170134

Panama hats are foldable straw hats. They do remind me of cricket umpires though.

John Lewis have a brilliant range in a sort of straw that springs back into shape - I have both a wide brimmed one and a Panama style one . Not expensive and durable but stylish . Both have a black ribbon .

These are all described as crushable holidayhats.co.uk/top-searches/crushable-hats/.
Are any of those what you had in mind?

Thanks so much. I need a wider brim than a panama, and other suggestions are out of stock, but some of those crushable holiday hats ones would be absolutely fine. Never occurred to me to search crushable. Thanks very much.

I wear big wide brimmed hats. Pack the case with a little hole where the head bit of the hat would fit. Then I pack inside the head bit out with bras/underwear that will pack tightly and hold the shape. Then I put more flat layers on top. Works perfectly.
