All hats come with an adjustable strap on the back which you can adjust 1-2cm.

We have chosen the perfect height and fit for each size based upon extensive hours of refining and customer feedback.


What countries do you ship to?

We ship our hats worldwide. For all orders outside the EU and Norway you shop tax free, but please note that taxes and duties may apply when your order is delivered to your home country.  


Problems with delivery country in checkout/ Norway is the only option?

At the top right corner of your browser you will see ”SHIPPING TO – Flag + Country”.  Select this button to get a list over all the available countries we ship to. Select your home country from the list and the page reloads. Make sure that the country has changed to your home country after reloading. Proceed with your order.

Once this is done, during checkout you should now be able to select your home country from the countries list.

If you still only see NORWAY on this list, the “shipping to” change must be repeated, but try selecting another country first, let it reload on this other country and then after this change is visible, try again to select your country from the list. Some customers have experienced that this is necessary to successfully get the country list in checkout to update.

If the problem persists, try changing to another browser. This has helped in some cases. From our experience Google Chrome browser works well. If none of the above works, contact us to manually place your order.


How much duties and taxes do I have to pay?

All taxes and duties are included for orders to Norway, the EU and the EEA countries.  For international orders taxes and duties may apply when receiving your order. Please contact your local authorities to find out what the import and taxes may be. 


How long time will the shipping take?

We ship your order as soon as we can, for orders received before 13.00 pm CET+1 we usually ship the same day. Otherwise we ship the next working day. The shipping time varies from 1-5 days depending on where you live. In most large citites in Europe we expect the shipment to take 1 days from when the shipment leaves us. Please note that the actual shipment is handled by our logotics partners and therefore we have little controle of the deliverytimes once it has left us.
