The braided hat band on his hat is a simple flat braid. A 4 or 6 cord works best. I prefer to use 3 cords folded in half and braided. You are using 2 cords for each braid this way, it is very simple and easy to do. When Sneakers was a student at my basic Survival course in 2002 he admired my hat band so much I showed him how to do it. It is real easy to do. Anyone who has ever braided hair can show you how to do a flat braid. When you have enough to go around just sew the ends together and wrap where they meet with a small piece of leather. I like mine to meet in the back and let about 6" of extra cord hang down. Then I insert a 1/8" firesteel into the end of one of the cords and seal it with a match. This way I always have fire capabilities plus I always carry fishing line under the sweat band and fishing hooks in the outer portion of the braid. I've been doing this to my hats for over 20 years and everyone who sees it really likes it.
