  • Patent number: 4130902
    Abstract: An improved cooling hatband is comprised of a structural support band which is affixable to the desired headpiece. An absorbent flexible liquid retaining band is attachable to the support band with a net fastener. The absorbent band is provided with a matrix of indented slots through which air can pass to optimize evaporation. The structural band is provided with a corresponding intermeshing matrix of openings which register with the intermeshing openings of the absorbent band when the absorbent band is connected to the structural band by means of the net fastener, allowing air to freely circulate through the assembled hatband.
