The Fit Guide

We'll help you find the perfect cap that fits just the way you like it and answer any questions you have about fit.
Did you know the human head does most of its growing in the first year of life? That’s why small kids tip over a lot (that isn’t true). But this is true: heads come in lots of shapes and sizes, and people wear hats in lots of different ways.

The perfect fitting hat comes down to three things: circumference, cap depth, and visor shape


All of our hats are adjustable for a wide range of head circumferences. The vast majority of our hats fit the vast majority of people.

We’ve created three sections to browse the best options for you below: runs small, runs average, and runs large.

Finding the right fit

Some of our hats run small, most run average size, and some run large.

  • Adults with smaller heads
  • Adults with medium size heads who want a snug fit
  • Youth aged 10+
  • Fits sizes 6 - 7 1/4
  • Circumference: 15 - 22 inches 
Runs Average
Great for:
  • Adults with medium size heads
  • Fits sizes 6 1/2 - 7 3/4

Kids' Hats

Hats sized for kids to fit a wide range of ages.
Great for:
  • Kids between 10 months - 3 years
  • A tighter fit for kids 4 - 5 years

Great for:
  • Kids between 2 - 10 years

Great for:
  • Kids between 5-14 years


Our visors come three ways: flat, half curve, and full curve.

You can curve our flat brim hats.

Our hats can be easily curved if that's your thing. Flat brims can become half curved; and, half curved can become full curved.

We have a video for proof.


Our hats come in a 5 or 6 panel structure. Check out all of our hats broken down by structure below.

And, as always, free returns.

We want to make sure you absolutely love your hat: the fit, feel, and quality. If you don't we have free returns - no questions asked.
