I have a couple hats that I really like, but they aren’t “Patch Hats.” This quick and easy hack will help you make almost any hat into a patch hat.
- Make sure the logo/design on your hat is patch sized
Simply take a patch and hold it over the logo. If it covers it, you’re good to go. Note: If the logo is slightly larger, you can sometimes fudge it (as is the case with my example hat).
- Buy Industrial Velcro
You can get it online here.
- Cut Velcro to cover logo and stick it on.
- Attach patch of choice.
- Optional Sharpie “Touch up.”
You’ll notice that the NF logo stitching was slightly larger than the Velcro and resulted in a silver strip above and below my Velcro. As soon as I can find my Sharpie, I’ll just black the silver out and be all good.
Here’s my other “self-made” patch hat.
The Velcro hold really well. I wear the above hat all the time in training and on events. Never lots a patch. “industrial” seems to live up to its name.
Oh, and you like that RVA GRT patch, huh? There’s more where that came from. Check’em out here.
