We've done our best to answer your most frequently asked questions!
What’s the difference between the Alpine and Nordic line?
Our Alpine products are lined with a cozy mid-weight fleece. We'd recommend the Alpine Hat for those colder days when you need a little extra warmth. The Nordic products are unlined, made with our printed poly-lycra blend fabric. The Nordic Hat is lightweight, breathable, and fits great under helmets - it is the original Skida Hat, designed with cross-country skiing in mind. Great for breaking a sweat in the cold!
What is the difference between the Men’s and Women’s hats?
We have been tweaking our sizing ever since we started making hats seven years ago. Our ladies size is a "one size fits most” based on our customers’ responses to our products’ fit and sizing so far. Our men’s hats are slightly bigger than the ladies. See our sizing chart for specific dimensions. If you are unhappy with the fit, send it back and we’ll happily make an exchange or process a refund. See below for our exchange and return policies!
Do Skida hats & headbands stretch?
Our Vermont-made hats and headbands are made of 4-way stretch fabrics - the fit is forgiving and comfortable.
What is the Skida [ +1 ] Program and how do I partake?
For a patient undergoing chemotherapy, Skida Hats provide warmth, comfort, and cheer. Our Skida [ +1 ] Program enables you, the customer, to donate a hat to one of our participating cancer centers when you place an order online by entering a special promotional code at the checkout. Each Skida [ +1 ] code corresponds with a participating cancer center. When we receive an order with a [ +1 ] code, Skida donates a hat to the corresponding center on your behalf. You can find a list of our participating cancer centers here. It is your Skida order, plus one!
What are the care instructions for my Skida products?
We recommend that you hand wash all Skida products with cold water and dry flat. This will prevent shrinkage and prolong the life of your favorite piece of headwear / accessory. Care instructions are also listed on the product care tag.
