All hats have these options:

 

1)Liner - inside the hat, at the very top of the head.

   A}Polar fleece- This is my most often used liner, it comes in many colors and patterns, it is soft and it works well for most applications.

   B}Wool fabric- This is what I recommend for people who use their gear hard in the wilderness. Wool is warm when wet and if you depend on this gear to survive that small margin can make a difference, I recommend this for mushers especially. Due to allergies I seldom use wool for inventory items.

 

2)Ties - What hold the hat closed - see pictures below

   A}Leather

     a]Braided Leather- This is the classic hat look, it looks good and is very strong.

     b]Leather Strips- This is easier to tie with gloves on and usually works with a cord-lock slider. More prone to breaking, and I generally make this style removable so they can be replaced when they break. For this reason I seldom use it in inventory items.

 

   B}Paracord or similar cordage- For a more utilitarian look and feel. Easy to use with gloves and comes with a cord-lock slider. This can be terminated in two ways

     a]Leather tab - can end in a single tab or both strings can have their own tab

     b]Fur pom-poms - can end in a single big pom-pom or two separate pom-poms

 

3)Bill - A simple bill can be added to any custom order hat. See pictures below

4)Tail - Any kind of tail can be added to any stye of hat. See pictures below
