We have been making hide caps for over 45 years now. We have made a wide range of caps like the Russian style, the Davy Crocket, and the trapper style. Be that as it may, no other sort of hide cap has been more prominent than the trooper style (otherwise called the RCMP Fur Hat). This style of hide cap out deals the various sorts by far. What’s more, all things considered; the cap has a style that can without much of a stretch be spruced up for formal nights, or dressed down for any outside action. What’s more, it’s pragmatic since you would where be able to the ear folds up or down.
In any case, on the off chance that you are in the market for a hide cap, there are a couple of things you ought to know about. The exact opposite thing you need is purchasing a cap on the web or from your nearby furrier and have the cap go into disrepair and not last in excess of one winter.
Tip #1: Make beyond any doubt you select the correct kind of hide for the correct condition or utilize. For instance, in the event that you require something for extremely unforgiving conditions. Something that is tough, at that point endeavor to stay with beaver, seal or otter. They are as intense as they get in the hide world. The drawback is that they are heavier than the normal hides. Different hides like muskrat, mink or fox are likewise great however lighter. In our business, 90% of all our hide caps are made with Canadian muskrats.
Tip #2: Make beyond any doubt the cap is “new”. What I mean is that at some point makers will mass create caps and store them in expansive distribution centers. These stockrooms are not all around acclimatized to keep up the characteristic oils of the hides. Ask when was the cap made, it ought not be more established than 2-3 years. On the off chance that you purchase something more seasoned, odds are that the skins are dried and the creases will begin to tear. Made to arrange is generally the most ideal approach to purchase hide caps.
Tip #3: Make beyond any doubt within coating is well made. For the majority of our hide caps, we need to physically sow within covering. It is a to a great degree moderate process, yet it’s the main way we can completely ensure that the cap will wear accurately. A decent coating helps keep the correct state of the cap; it gives a more strong structure. One test is to put the cap topsy turvy, if the shape is as yet the same (like you filled in hole of the cap with paper), at that point it’s a quality coating.
