Apparel – Head coverings – Having crown and horizontally extending visor
A reversible baseball style cap provides a crown having first and second layers of material that together form a dome shape that enables a user to wear and conform the crown to the user's head, and wherein either layer can be shaped into a concavity that abuts the user's head during use and wherein the outer layer defines an outer exposed surface. A bill of a floating foam material has a first curved edge that is stitched to the crown in between the first and second layers. The bill has a second curved edge defining a front of the cap. An adjustment cord extends through an opening in at least one of the layers at a position opposite the bill. The cord has end portions that are attached to the crown at two positions generally on opposite sides of the cord opening. A sleeve adjustably, slidably attaches to the cord to form an adjustable loop with the cord. A user can adjust the fit of the hat to his or her head by moving the cord relative to the sleeve so that when the loop is enlarged or reduced in size, the cap can be fitted to the wearer when either the first or second layer is the outer exposed surface. In the preferred embodiment, the brim is of a different material than the crown, preferably a floating material that has sufficient floatation to float the entire cap, even when the crown portion is saturated with water.
