Doo-Hats – “Cool” is the Word

If you happen to be searching for a way to stay cool and look cool at the same time, there’s really only one way to go about it, and that’s by wearing a doo-hat. Doo-hats have been known to instantly lend a certain air of coolness to anyone that wears one.

First of all, having sweat in your eyes is decidedly not cool. Surveys have in fact suggested that, along with scores of other things, women do not find men with sweat in their eyes attractive. So what’s the solution, you ask? A doo-hat, of course! Doo-hats are great at keeping sweat out of a worker’s eyes, which will not only lead to women finding him attractive, but to improved vision as well. Improved vision will in turn lead to a safer work environment.

Secondly, being hot is not cool either. Luckily, simply soaking a doo-hat in ice-cold water and then wringing it out before wrapping it around your head can actually provide a bit of relief on those extra hot days. Make sure, however, that you do not make the mistake of using one of your coworker’s drinking water to soak your doo-hat. Doing so could provoke a confrontation that could turn dangerous.

Finally, doo-hats quite simply look cool, especially when they feature great patriotic designs, such as those from Rawhyde Frontier. Rawhyde Frontier probably makes the greatest selection of doo-hats in the world today, and you can get your very own at If you’re not very cool, please don’t waste anymore time!

Welding Caps – Put a Lid on It

Whether you’re a professional welder or just a hobbyist, owning a good welding cap is always a good idea. Serving a number of purposes, not the least of which is protecting the welder’s hair from dangerous sparks, welding caps are essential to staying safe in the work place. Nowadays welding doo-hats are also popular. Available in a wide variety of colors and designs, both welding caps and doo-hats are “hot” commodities.

Welding caps were most likely brought into existence some years ago by pipeline welders. They needed a cap with a bill that could be turned sideways to protect their ears. They also wanted a little extra room up top, which would enable them to pull the cap down tight when needed, thus protecting the entire head. Welders continue to wear welding caps today for these very same reasons.

Welding caps can also be worn to keep both sweat and hair out of a welder’s eyes, to provide cushioning beneath the oftentimes uncomfortable parts of welding helmets, or, with all the different designs available today, to simply make a fashion statement. Whatever a welder’s reasons may be for wearing a welding cap, it’s always a good move, as being safe is always better than being sorry.

As for welding doo-hats, many welders wear them because they say they’re easier to wash than traditional welding caps. Some say it’s easier to get a better fit with a welding doo-hat as well. Whether one wears a doo-hat or a cap is, in the end, a matter of preference, but it does need to be said that welding caps do provide somewhat more protection than doo-hats. You can’t turn a doo-hat sideways to protect the ear, and it’s always seemed to me that welding caps offered more protection as a result of the material used to make them as well.
