Welding Hat Info and Size
All American welding caps are reversible... our fabrics (both in and out) are durable and will last no matter which way you wear it. With our sizing instructions, you'll get the perfect fit. No coneheads, just fit. The hat has two rows of stitching along the bottom of the hat. The bill has three rows of stitching and holds its shape. All seams are back tacked at start and end.
The outer fabric of this four paneled hat is the fabric of your choice. We choose a matching lining and a matching thread.
Most of our hats are 100% cotton. Fabric content of the fabric will be noted with each swatch. It will also be noted that the fabric is lightweight, medium weight, or heavy weight.
The bill of our welding caps is 2 1/2" deep and 7 1/2" wide
Welding hat sizes are exact (as opposed to our biker caps) :
Head Circumference (Inches)
To measure your head for circumference :
Use a flexible tape* to measure around the the part of the head that you'd like the band of the hat to rest. Make sure the tape is flat and that it is a comfortable fit. Don't pull too tight.
Using the resulting inches, match your size to our size chart. There's a chance that our size chart will vary from other companies, so please don't assume size... take the time to make sure.
Crown (depth) Size:
Crowns for Welding and Biker hats are the same and are available in the following depths (measured in inches):
6 1/2 (Traditional)
To measure for crown size :
Using flexible tape*, measure from the crown of the head (highest peak) to the location you'd like the bottom of the band.
If you have an existing hat that fits fine, lay it down, flat on the front to back axis. Measure the distance from the top of the crown to the bottom of the band.
-Use a piece of string to measure, then lay the string down on a ruler for exact inches.
-Fabrics are not pre-shrunk. However, our sizes compensate for shrinkage.
