I heard this phrase when I was following a hot loud debate by two Americans in a restaurant:

You're talking through your hat!

What is an equivalent expression?

If you find it interesting for yourself and useful for audiences you can write about its etymology and usages too.

'Talking through your hat' means talking a lot about something without knowing much about it, like I am doing just now.
