Finding a perfectly fitting hat can be a challenge, but with the right tools and techniques, it’s a breeze. At Kakadu Traders Australia, we believe that a great hat not only offers protection and style but also fits as if it were made just for you. Here are three straightforward methods to measure your head so you can find your best fit, embodying our commitment to quality and craftsmanship in every piece.

1. The Soft Tape Method

This is the most accurate way to measure your head. Use a soft measuring tape – the kind used by tailors and seamstresses. Place it about an inch above your eyebrows and ears, ensuring it encircles your head where the hat will sit. Keep the tape level and firm, without being overly tight. Record the measurement in inches or centimeters, then use our hat size chart to convert this measurement into the perfect hat size.

2. The String Method

Don’t have a measuring tape? No worries. A piece of non-stretch string or ribbon can work just as well. Wrap it around your head just like the soft tape, mark where the end meets the rest of the string, and measure the length of the string with a standard ruler or a metal tape measure. Once you have your measurement, refer back to our size chart to find your ideal hat size.

3. The Guestimation Method

If you're in a pinch and need a quick estimate, this method can help. Find a hat you already own that fits well. Wearing it as you normally would, take note of how it sits. Remove the hat and measure the inside band using a flexible tape measure or a ruler. This gives you a quick estimate of your size, which you can then compare to our sizing chart for a more informed choice.

Why Measure Your Head for a Hat?

The right hat fit is crucial not just for comfort but for maintaining the shape and longevity of the hat. A well-fitting hat feels better, looks better, and performs its function more effectively. Whether you're shielding yourself from the sun, dressing up for a special occasion, or adding a touch of class to your outdoor gear, the right fit makes all the difference.

At Kakadu Traders Australia, we design our hats to be as rugged and enduring as the landscapes that inspire them. Each hat is crafted with attention to detail and respect for the wild, embodying the spirit of adventure that is integral to our brand. Measuring your head properly ensures that you can enjoy all that our hats have to offer, with a fit that feels custom-made.
