Long style fleece hats are perfect for keeping warm. Think of these long hats as a beanie cap that has been lengthened. These long hats have 2 layers of warm fleece that may be worn with the last few inches rolled up for extra warmth on cold days or left unrolled for a more baggy look.

Cold Weather Work Hat
The beanie has been used since the 18th century by those who worked outdoors in cold weather. It was originally made from wool as a round, knitted cap that hugged the head to provide protection for those working on the seas, in the mountains and hunting. The Canadians referred to the style of cap as a tuque.
Being 100% fleece, the long hat is a warm hat. It is constructed with a double layer of fleece making it warm all over. It won’t get ruined from a bit of rain or snow. It is packable so it may easily be shoved into a pocket, down a coat sleeve or into a suitcase and it will always retain its original shape making it good for those with an active lifestyle.
Wear It Your Way
Depending upon how you prefer to wear hats; these long hats may be worn like a typical rolled beanie cap or baggy for a slouchy look.
Rolled Beanie Look
When it is really cold; by all means get extra warmth by rolling up the excess length of the hat. Roll up about the first 2″ to 3″ of the hat first and then pull it on to hug the head and turn up any remaining excess length as desired. To get the maximum benefit of the extra thickness, pull it down to cover the forehead and ear.
When it is not really all that cold; go with the unrolled beanie approach. For the baggy look that gives a slouchy appearance with the long hat, skip rolling the end of the hat. Think headband when putting the hat on and position the hat on the head like you would do when you put on a headband. Once on; pull the sides over the ears as desired and give the back a brush down along the back of the head.
Prevent Matted Bangs
Gals with bangs should definitely consider going with this approach to wearing the long hat. It will be following the hairline at the top of the forehead so the hat will rest behind your bangs, not on them. Bangs will not get matted down. Hat on or off; bangs will show off like they always do.
Wear It His Way
At the Nike Elementary school’s Holiday Mart, a grandson saw the long, paw prints hat on the rack and had to have it. The grandfather suggested he look over all the caps and hats, but the grandson really liked that one.
I saw him wearing it periodically through the event and at first it was rolled up. The last time I saw him, he had it unrolled and simply pulled on and bagging on the back of his head. It was his hat and he was wearing it his way. He looked so cute in his hat!
To Be Or Not To Be Seen
Hunters definitely like the camouflage, long hats and, with the double layer of fleece that can be rolled up to get 4-layers of protection over their ears when the wind is howling, they won’t be disappointed when they really need a warm hat.

Hiking During Hunting Season
“I was searching the internet for “orange fleece hats” because my husband & I like to hike – even during hunting season… We thought your hats looked “visible,” warm & stylish.” Not seeing the sizes she needed, Brenda sent her request for a pair of long hats and a cloche hat in orange. The custom hats were created and dropped in the mail. Upon getting notice that the hats were on the way, she commented, “Thanks for the prompt service!” It was so nice to receive the picture she took of her husband while they were out hiking. He looks so nice in his orange hat. — Brenda D., Wenatchee WA
Matching Sister Hats
She and her sister found the long hats in fluorescent green and placed the online order. Then she quickly sent the email, “We actually wanted two hats but it shows sold out. Could you make another one?” The material was still available, so the plan was set to make the second hat for her sister and the initial one was dropped in the mail.
What Size is Best for a Baggie Fit?
Shortly the unfortunate results arrived. “I received the first hat today. it’s actually quite small and I can barely get it on my head. the picture shows that modern look of it being long and droopy in the back and it just sticks straight up. If you have not already made the next one can you make a bigger one?”
Oh, no! So, what size is best? Your description really helps. I just tried on a small size long hat and I have the same results. While I can wear the small size; I typically like the medium size rather than small size for a fit that is not as snug in fleece. I always bump up to use the large size in this longer hat to get the baggy look. I believe that is what we should do. The exchange was made and both hats were made 2 sizes larger than she originally measured and thought they would require. Press here for the fluorescent green long hat.
Right Size Delivers Love Them Results
“Hey Becky, they arrived and I love them! Thank you so very much. You were a pleasure to work with and I will be happy to use and recommend you in the future.” — Lynn Downing, Sammamish, WA
Hat happiness is when the hat feels right and delivers the look you want.
Long Hats in All Sizes
When these long style hats were introduced at their first show in the Fall of 2013, there was only the typical one-size-fits-most or adult M size. The kids liked seeing all of the colors and could not resist getting one even though it was really too big for the younger children. Because there is a double layer of fleece, they just rolled up more of the length and they were good to go. Parents liked the idea of being able to get several years of use out of the hat, so they were happy to buy a warm, hat the kids were going to use. Press here for the adult M size.
My Head is Smaller
Some of the ladies would say they had a smaller head and some of the kids would simply be swimming in the excess, so the requests would come for a smaller size. The adult S size was introduced and it fits those ages 6 to 10 years of age, and still the requests for smaller cropped up. Now; they are available in youth sizes, too. The starting size is youth S-M which fits ages 2 to 3 year olds and youth L-XL for those 3 to 5 year olds. Press here for the youth S-M size, here for youth L-XL and here for the adult S size.
My Head is Larger
Those who prefer the baggy look and really felt the hat was a bit too tight would ask for a larger size, so adult L and adult XL were introduced at the same time as the adult L. Some would say they have a larger head and some of those gals and guys would try on the adult XL and still say that it was too small. Really! Yes, really. The long style fleece hats now are available in adult 2XL. Press here for adult L, here for adult 1XL and here for the adult 2XL size.
