The loop and eleven loop can be seen as the long and long long versions of the hat. Orthogonally lengthened versions of the hat are also possible still life components (a long³ version appears in Cthulhu), though they are not still lifes of their own.
Hat is the twenty-fifth most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than trans-boat with tail but more common than boat-ship-tie. It is also the thirty-third most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.
