Carhartt Hats: Bright Orange Acrylic Watch Cap A18 BOG
The Carhartt A18 BOG Bright Orange Acrylic Watch Hat is made of stretchable 100% acrylic. The fabric is a rib knit so it’ll keep you warm and stretch to fit anyone. A watch hat is another name for a tuque. When they were first designed, mostly naval personnel wore them. That’s because they stay in place, even in nasty sea winds.
Here’s some history for you. Tuques were first worn by women in the 12th century. They were made with velvet or satin and worn on top of head veils. It took 400 years for men to figure out how great they were. They were a big hit with the guys starting in the 16th century and have never lost their popularity.
Of course, back then they didn’t often wear bright orange watch hats, they were mostly black. But they didn’t face all of the dangers on the worksite that we face today. The color really stands out so you’ll be seen by oncoming traffic.
Make a fashion statement with Carhartt A18 BOG Bright Orange Acrylic Watch Hat and be seen when it counts. They keep your head nice and toasty on cold days. One of our guys actually puts his watch hat on in the fall and doesn’t take it off until spring. Yes, he even showers with it on.

While this is certainly great for hunting (hence the visibility) this Carhartt hat is a bit too orange for public wearing-- imagine a traffic cone, but covered with lights. It's fairly warm, although it would be nice if it was a bit warmer (I enjoy cold weather, sue me) but i suppose this would do well if it used in a warmer climate. My buddies seem to love theirs, and you can't really beat the low low price. I think this is best for a work hat if you have to wear high visibility stuff, or like I said before, hunting.
