The Nike Sizing guide
Knowing what size to get can take longer than finding your perfect hat, but with this guide, we have made it easy. Using either a flexible tape or a piece of string and a ruler, measure from the back of your head to the center of your head (bringing both ends of the string or tape to your forehead) Remember to put the tape measure or the string in the position you expect the hat to sit. Once you have found the measurement, use the chart below to find your perfect fit.
Most Nike hats come in one size, with the brand’s baseball caps featuring an adjustable back fastening so it can be customized. For Nike hats that come in S-XL sizing, you can use the above chart to convert to your head measurements.
