Headbands for Winter Sports
By gw
2/3/2013 12:00:00 PM  
If you play sports when its cold or even freezing outside but don't want to get overheated with a full beanie cap, then winter headbands may be just what you need. We're always talking to winter sports junkies this time of year who are concerned about either getting too hot or having their heads sweat and then having the sweat get too cold inside their hat. This is a very common issue for basketball players and runners, for mountian sports like skiing and snowboarding, and of course for hunting, hockey, and ice skating. Very often, the best solution is headbands. They cover your ears, which are very sensitive to cold, and fit tightly, but not too tight, around your head so they won't fall off. The trick is to find the best material and size for comfort, and the best colors for style or to match your team uniform. Check out some of our most popular winter headband styles at Sport-Smart or browse all our winter sports headwear.

How to measure your head for the perfect hat size
By gw
1/6/2013 11:25:00 AM  

A hat is an important accessory for many people. There are many types, designs and styles to choose from. However, no matter what type of hat you choose it will not look good unless it is the perfect fit. Fitting your head for a hat is no different than fitting yourself for a pair of shoes. You would not buy a size 8 if your foot is a 9 right? This is why measuring your head to ensure a proper fit is so important.

There are three basic steps when it comes to measuring your head for a hat.

Step 1: Take a cloth measuring tape and place it around your head. The tape should begin at the center of your forehead and wrapped around completely until the other end meets the tip in the middle of your forehead.

Step 2: Be sure to hold the beginning part of the measuring tape and wrap in around your head slowly and deliberately. Wrap the measuring tape right above your ears as this is where the bottom of the hat will sit. Once you make it all the way around, write down the measurement.

Step 3: Look at a measurement chart for hats to convert the size you wrote down to the standard hat sizes. This will allow you to choose the size that is perfect for your head. For example, if your head size is 21 ½ inches, your hat size will be 6 ¾ inches or small. If head measures 25 inches then you hat size will be 7 7/8th or extra extra large.

If you want to double check your size or you do not have a measuring tape, take a piece of yarn or string and wrap it around your head. Then take the yarn and measure it against a tape measure or ruler to ensure that your initial measurement is accurate. And this is how to get the right hat size for your head!

Sports Visors Vs. Baseball Caps
By gw
8/12/2012 2:46:00 PM  
Two of our most popular headwear items are sports visors and baseball caps and customers often want to discuss the differences. Both visors and caps are made to help protect you from the sun’s rays and look stylish.

The sports visor is also known as a visor cap or sun visor. It is a hat that is crownless, consisting only of a brim and a strap that circles around the head. Only the face is protected, which keeps the sun’s rays from reaching the eyes, cheeks, forehead and nose. It does not however protect the ears and the top of the head. Those who have thin hair or are bald should avoid using sun visors as a method of sun protection. Visors are great for active outdoor sports like tennis, golf, volleyball, and running because they are comfortable, reduce sun glare, and keep the top of your head cooler than traditional ball caps.

A baseball cap is a soft hat that has a round crown and a bill that is stiff. The bill juts out in the front to protect the eyes and face from the sun. The first protocol for the baseball hat surfaced in 1860, but the stiff bill affect did not come into play until the 1940’s and is considered the birth of the modern day baseball cap.

There are many styles of baseball caps including adjustable caps (with velcro, snaps, and buckles), fitted hats, and flat bills, made from cotton, wool, moisture wicking, and many other materials. Baseball hats shield the wearers face from the sun and protect the top of the head. The ear coverage is slight but can help in preventing sunburn if used along with sun screen.

Wearing Hats for Sun Protection
By gw
7/22/2012 8:21:00 AM  

Though many hats are designed for fashion, the most practical reason for wearing hats is sun protection. Exposing your skin to the rays of the sun can be extremely damaging. Even when you apply sunscreen, the face, ears and scalp are often either forgotten about or not ever considered. These are important areas and can easily develop burns or even skin cancer. Wearing a hat can help protect these sensitive areas, keeping them safe from possible damage. However, you should of course wear sun block in addition to a protective hat.

When looking for the perfect hat for the most sun protection, ideally you should look for one that has a wide brim. Standard baseball caps will give you some protection, as will visors but a wide brim hat will give your head and face fuller coverage. A brim will keep the sun off your face, ears and neck. For men or women with short hair consider a cap with a neck flap that covers the back of you neck too.  That is an area that is hard to cover with sunscreen and can easily get burned.

Most importantly you should find a hat that is comfortable, fits well and looks good so you'll be more inclined to wear it while exercising outdoors, sitting on the sidelines at a game or even while running errands. So, take care in choosing your sun hat and remember that there is one more excellent reason to wear a wide brimmed sun protector – you do not have to worry too much about fixing your hair; it will be covered by your stylish and protective new hat!

Fitted or Adjustable Caps - Which Is Best or You?
By jw
7/7/2012 1:26:00 PM  

There are a few basic things to consider when deciding on fitted or adjustable caps. Lets be clear on the major differences.

Adjustable caps have a mechanism on the back to adjust the size and fit of the cap and also have an opening in the fabric above the mechanism. Most adjustable caps are “one size fits most.” Adjustable caps are usually cheaper than fitted caps.

Who wears adjustable caps?

Lots of people like to adjust the size of their hats depending on different uses. For example they make their hats tighter when running in windy conditions.

Parents and coaches like adjustable hats for their teams (little league, softball, etc.) because they don't have to worry about measuring and sizing each team member's head.

Also, lots of women (and men) with long hair prefer adjustable hats because they can put their hair in a ponytail and stick it through the back opening of the cap which makes sports and other activities more comfortable.

What are the different types of adjustable caps?

  • Plastic Snap

  • Hook/Loop Tape (Velcro)

  • Tuck Strap With Slide Buckle

  • Self Strap Metal Buckle

  • D-Fit

  • Nylon Clip 

Fitted caps have no mechanism to adjust the size of the cap and have closed backs, with no opening. They come in different sizes (XS to XXL depending on the item) and have stretchable fabric that wraps around your head. You should measure your head to make sure you get the best fit…like any other type of fitted clothing.

Who wears fitted caps?

Teams and leagues love fitted hats as part of their uniforms because of the tailored, clean look.

Fashion oriented sports enthusiasts and individuals (including many celebrities) also like fitted caps because of their clean look and higher quality appearance…especially with flat visors or brims that have a more urban look.

And last but not least, bald guys LOVE fitted caps Vs. adjustable caps...so they don't get sun burns like this!
