Decades ago, we decided that watersports hats and caps should float. Testing different compositions of foam, we were able to flip the brim up, increasing visibility for trimming sails! Buoyancy and visibility were good innovations, and over time we added improvements. Today, our FlipFloat™ Brim incorporates our Windsert™ and RingFrame™ construction for high wind stability. Flicking the hand, the brim easily flips upwards, for easy view of sail shape, and trim without extreme neck bend or hat removal. The FlipFloat™ Brim, Tahoe Blue Gear's™ first innovation.
Our chin strap system provides a complete set of solutions to hat wearers. Our goal; create a detachable system that is elegant, simple, comfortable, dependable, non-intrusive to sight or feel, non-corrosive, easy to employ, and, optional. Challenging? Yes. Impossible? Not anymore. Our customized system employs strong, corrosion proof hooks. The shape is engineered for robust attachment, yet, is easily removed. The hooks engage discreetly into lace loop anchors. Our chin strap lace is custom woven, premium, and extra wide for all day comfort. Finished to a specified length, to reduce chin and eye whipping, and stay out of the way of activities. The selected cordlock was highly considered for quality, compatibility, function, ergonomics and comfort. With the added touch of a bead puller, 13 points of detail comprised our D-Tach Strap™. A Tahoe Blue Gear™, best-in-class solution.
