Please follow the RipTide Welding Hats directions in the description and find your size in the size chart below. Measure twice, order once! DO NOT use the other hat makers hat size as not all hat makers use the same measurements for sizing. 

If your measurement is in between sizes and you need a bit added or removed from a size that most definitely can be done. You can forward an email with your order number and the explanation of what you need done. If you are unsure of a fit you can start with a premade hat before making your custom order.

DO NOT – I REPEAT – DO NOT order a size larger as the hats will NOT shrink. All the fabrics are prewashed and dried in the dryer extra long and ironed prior to cutting to prevent shrinkage. RipTide Welding Hats are like a pair of jeans, they will fit perfect as long as you measure properly and will stretch out a bit when wearing and due to sweating. Once washed and even thrown in the dryer, Yes thrown in the dryer, they will shrink back to that perfect fit.

RipTide Welding hats are all 6 panel hats with a rim, accurately measured and cut and a short style beak.

RipTide Welding Hats originally started with only double sided hats with reinforced stitching to make the hats more durable, especially from multiple washes. Single sided hats are a new item and are also prewashed material which also have reinforced stitching for longer durability.

There is absolutely no seam on the front of the hat. The only seam on the hat is at the rear of the rim. This makes the hat so comfortable you will not even realize you are wearing the hat.

Yes a custom fabric can be designed and ordered. This would make a great custom swag fabric for a company. Just email the logo in a JPG file and give me an idea what you are looking for or let me design something up for you. 

Yes I can make you a custom fabric of your own artwork, I will not use someone else’s art unless you have been given permission to use the design. You must have a copyright permission.
