Cap Styles 

Style  Definition
Trucker The hallmark of a trucker cap is the mesh sides and back panels. Truckers come in all shapes and profiles, but the thing that they all have in common is the wonderfully breathable mesh. 
5 Panel As the name suggest these caps are constructed out of 5 pieces of fabric. Formed from two curved side pieces, two upper panels and one arched front, the signature of a 5 panel cap are to have a low profile when worn and a rounded crown that hugs the shape of the head. 
7 Panel Coal's 7 panel is built off a low profile pattern, but unlike its 6 paneled - dad hat cousins - it has a 7th panel across the lower front. The front panel is a perfect surface for the signatures Coal patches.

Made of 5 or 6-pizza slice shaped wedges of fabric, these caps features a rounded silhouette, and are unstructured for easy, comfortable wearing. 


The vintage fit has a slightly square shape. These styles are offered as unstructured caps or with mesh inserts at the front. Maybe as a kid you thought the mesh was a make shift sunglasses, or a clever way to keep bugs out if your eyes. Coal employ the mesh as an old-school front panel backing, giving soft shape, without the rigid feel of other backing materials. 


Coal's athletic has a tall front crown, with a slightly rounded yet squared off front profile. The front panel is backed in sturdy material, which gives the cap its crisp shape. 



Coal beanies are made with premium knits and materials, and with unique attention to fit and function. From cuffed and slouch, to pom and brimmed - Coal beanies are the perfect accessory to round out any outfit.


Beanie Fits

Fit   Description
Low Profile The shortest fitting beanie profile, this fit is great for people who wear small to medium sizes. Ideal for those who prefer a beanie that is the perfect length to just cover the ears, closely hugging the top of the head. 
Mid Length The mid length fit is the happy medium between low profile and the tall Uniform beanies. These beanies have a little extra room at the top for extra style points and coziness. 
Tall  The tallest of 'em all, these beanies have the most extra length past the cranium when worn. Squish it down or wear it high and proud.
