What is a bomber hat?
By gw
1/22/2014 11:44:00 AM  
Bomber hats are also called aviator hats. They have been around since the early 20th century and were first used by pilots of open cockpit planes to keep their heads and ears warm while flying. Whille planes have had closed cockpits for a very long time now, the style never went out of fashion. In fact, we get lots of requests for these warm, comfortable hats every winter. Especially this winter of 2014! 

Check out our colorful Knit Bomber with tassles here for only $15.95, available in 13 color choices.

Time for Fall Ball!
By gw

Fall Baseball

Fall Ball is here again and we are talking with lots of coaches and parents all over the country to help get their baseball and softball teams geared up with caps. Here are a few questions that may provide insight for those new to Fall Ball.

Why is Fall Ball different than Spring Ball?

Fall Ball helps the players maintain their skills throughout the year. This is especially important for kids who just want to keep playing little league baseball without waiting for spring (and for their parents!). Fall Ball is usually not as formal as Spring Ball, with less ceremonies and picture days, but it’s a great way to keep the baseball fire burning and get ready for the big spring season.

How long is the Fall Ball season?

It varies by area, but typically the fall ball season starts in August and goes through November.  In many areas there are no play-offs or tournaments in Fall Ball.

What else is different for Fall Ball?

Some areas have significantly less players registered for Fall Ball than they do in Spring. This can cause local leagues to change their structures with fewer divisions or teams. Also, some leagues don’t use formal uniforms in Fall and may simply use colored t-shirts and blank colored caps without embroidery.

We at Sport-Smart.com hope you enjoy Fall Ball and continue developing your baseball and softball skills!

If you’re a fan of Duck Dynasty you may know that Phil Robertson played college football at Louisiana Tech, starting ahead of Terry Bradshaw. Then he quit football to focus on duck hunting and eventually started the Duck Commander Company 40 years ago. Now fans of Phil, Si, Jase, Willie, and Jep can “unleash their wild spirit” with A&E’s new camo caps at Sport-Smart.com. Get back to nature with these durable camo and cotton canvas hats. Like our other camos, these are great for hunting, fishing, or just hanging out at the campsite. We even have ladies styles for those without beards. Go low tech in the high tech world…but you still use soap if you like…unlike Si.

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!

Blaze Orange Hats - The Most Visible Color for Hunting
By jwq
10/28/2012 1:15:00 PM  
If you’re a hunter, you know that blaze orange is a must, not only because it’s instantly recognizable but also because it’s the law in many areas. Blaze orange is bright and not found in nature so it provides great contrast to camouflage hunting gear and natural foliage. This safety aspect makes blaze orange caps, visors, and other head gear required in many parts of the country when hunting for bear, hogs, deer, rabbit, pheasant, quail, and other game. In addition to blaze headgear, blaze orange is also required on many body parts. It is a good idea for everyone on game lands during hunting season to wear blaze orange hats, caps, and visors. At Sport-Smart, we have dozens of blaze hat options to choose from including beanies, visors, bucket hats, boonie hats, jones hats, and ball caps. Click here to see them all or check out these blaze orange favorites.
