Coal was founded on the belief that headwear is more than an accessory. It’s part of you, your identity, and your lifestyle. They build this idea into each of their designs by using quality materials and exacting detail, and crafting styles that are “as unique as you are”.
In 2002 a group of friends got together to start a company that reflected their shared vision: headwear should be more than an accessory. At the time, hats, knit beanies, and the like were little more than a commodity that brands put their logo on. Coal chose not to. Today, Coal has kept its low key style, and count a pretty strong posse of riders to represent their vision, such as Scott Stevens, Jess Kimura, Cale Zima, Phil Jacques, or Joe Sexton. But Coal has also ambassadors in other areas than snowboarding, music and art for example. Check their inspirational 2014/2015 collection in the following pages.
