Im not sure if this has been asked before but has anyone els have the same problem as i do.

I have a big head.... 64cms around .. and i can never find golf hats that fit me properly with out cutting circulation off or looking like i stole my 3 year olds hat.

i have a cobra l/xl fitted cap and it takes a good 3 months of wearing before it stretches enough to be comfy. and even then leaves big red marks on my head.

has anyone found anywhere online that sells 2xl fitted caps? Or know of a golf brand hat that is comfy enough for big noggins. Every golf store/course doesn't have anything that fits properly.

cheers

Have you tried wetting the hat when new then wearing it until it dries?
It will stretch to accommodate your giant noggin.
Be sure to only wet the elastic flexfit band rather than the entire hat.
If you wet the whole hat you can lose the shape of the front panel.

I bought a L/XL Under Armour, it's too tight for my head at the moment so I can only assume they make a smaller fit too

I've had a couple of Under Armour Stretch-Fit Caps, and I find them pretty good when I can find them at a decent price. If you can get one in XL/XXL (they list this in their size guide), then that is supposed to cater to up to 64.8cm.

I've found the Mizuno hats to be large.... however I have the opposite problem.

High risk for NPD apparently. What are the odds? He's not even a southern feral or a northern bogan. Always the ones you least expect...
