The HatCozy™: Because you can't warm your ears in your armpits!™
I searched and searched for a solution to the dilemma of versatile cold-weather headwear. Hot or cold weather, I like wearing a cowboy hat when it's sunny to keep the sun out of my eyes. I like wearing a cowboy hat when it's raining and snowing, so I don't get pelted in the face and down my collar. But when it's cold, especially cold and windy, my ears would ache with cold.
I tried several things, but nothing was a good "fit" — in many senses of the word.
So, I invented The HatCozy:
It's warm. Easy to put on and take off. The only part under the hat is the strap which is thin, so it doesn't change the fit of my hats! The straps have friction, so cowboy hats don't slip off. The buckle rides out of the way on top of the head, and gives the garment adjustability for a custom fit.
It just rides on the head, no attachment hassles. Only two sizes cover everybody's heads. I have them made in the U.S.A., in Portland, Oregon by the talented and energetic folks at Portland Garment Factory, with the highest-quality Polartec® fleece and this great machine-washable fabric that looks, feels and blocks wind like suede. And, when the weather or I warm-up, then I just slip it off and wad it up in a pocket.
And now, you can have one, too! They're available online at hatcozy.com..
