The Trucker Cap

Trucker caps, also known as mesh caps or snapback caps, are a popular style of headwear characterized by their structured front panels and a mesh back. These caps originated in the 1960s and were initially used as promotional items by trucking companies, hence the name. They have since become a trendy fashion accessory and are widely worn by people of all ages.

The front panels of trucker caps are typically made of foam or a stiff fabric, giving them a structured and slightly elevated shape. The back panels are made of breathable mesh material, providing ventilation and comfort, especially in warm weather. One of the defining features of trucker caps is the adjustable snapback closure at the back, allowing wearers to customise the fit according to their head size.

We aim to show you as many great brands of truckers as we can but still keeping with the most reputable brands and sellers. Quality is the most important factor to give you great comfort and trucker cap that will last.
