Hats – How to get the right fit

Mar 07, 2012 No Comments by

Coolibar hats not only express personal style, they protect your precious noggin from the sun’s harmful rays.  Comfort is important too.  You’ll know when you have a hat that fits well because you’ll forget you have it on!

Here’s how you can measure your head to ensure you have the right fit:

1) Hunt down a tape measure – yup over there in the “junk drawer”- this is the case at my house anyway. 

2) Starting at your forehead, measure around your head where your hat would normally sit –about 1/2″–1″ above your eyebrows and about 1/4″ above your ears, then continue around the back of your head and back to your forehead. Pull the tape snug but not tight, as you would like a hat to fit (measuring errors occur from pulling the tape too tightly).  Measure to the nearest 1/8″ a couple of times in front of the mirror –smile, say cheese! 

* If you don’t have a flexible tape measure, a piece of string (non-stretchy) can be held around the head and then measured on a yardstick.
