Skullcap – The Protection With Style
There are many different materials that the skull cap can be made from. Leather is a popular medium to use as it is durable and offers a lot of protection from the cold and rain. It can be a bit heavier than other materials though, and can be hot to wear, which in summer, can be difficult to deal with. Cotton cloth type skull caps can be easier to wear in the summer, and are easier to customize with logo's or designs. The aren't as durable as leather though. There are also aviator style caps that offer a fleece lining for those very cold rides.
There are many styles of cap to choose from. Traditional skull caps have a large patch of cloth or leather that cover most of the hair, and two straps that tie behind the head, to hold the skull cap ion place. Some leather skull caps offer perforation in the head piece to allow for ventilation. Aviator style skull caps offer a certain cool style to the not so average rider, who is looking to make a statement. You could also choose to have a matching face mask with the same logo as the skull cap.
There are many different designs that can be purchased from a distributor. They come already attached to the skull cap, and offer a flair of style for the motorcycle rider. You can find for example a skull cap with white biker crosses, red crosses with flames, flames drawn in different colors, USA Flags, POW MIA symbols, motorcycles, chopper crosses, rebel flags, and stars and stripes with or without eagles. The cotton style skull caps come in a variety of colors. A motorcycle riding club might also want to consider purchasing a bulk supply of skull caps to have their own logo embroidered onto them. This is a great way to show pride for the motorcycle riding club. When purchasing a skull cap, be sure to order the appropriate size. There are some general guidelines to follow when figuring out which skull cap size to get. Measuring the head where the headband rests at on the head will give the proper size. When the measurement falls between 2 sizes, always choose the larger size.
20 ¾ inches to 21 ½ inches is regarded generally as size small, 21 7/8 inches to 22 ¼ inches is medium, 22 5/8 inches to 23 inches is large, and 23 ½ inches to 24 5/8 inches is extra large. The use of a skull cap dates back for thousands of years and have been seen still in use in a variety of forms through out different societies and different religions. Used as protection from physical and spiritual harms, they offer a glimpse into the human soul for a moment. They also have been used for education, social position, or even commitment to a certain group. Common sightings today can be seen in the Jewish religion, The Catholic religion, Motorcycle community and even in midevial reenactments with persons wearing chain skull caps.
