Our fleece Lizard Hat has an embroidered Purple Lizard to help you make any spot a lizard spot! This super-soft, super warm hat is our favorite headgear when the temperatures start to fall and hunting season opens.
One size fits all although we think these run a bit large, so they may not work for kids.
Our hats are embroidered by a local Central PA shop by folks that actually use Lizard Maps. They even sourced a really sweet shade of purple thread just for us. We love supporting local businesses on a hyper-local scale - they are right down the road from us.
