Trucker hats for big heads are a type of baseball hat that has become popularized through movies and television over the years to become one of the most worn hats around. Aside from being worn by celebrities, mesh hats also have many practical uses in everyday life. They’re structured hats, which means they have great hat depth to comfortably fit your head, hold their shape well, and the mesh backing gives the head much needed airflow during hot months of the year. They are also referred to as snapbacks for big heads, big head trucker caps and big mesh caps.
Where did the trucker hat originate? Back in the 1960s, people called it the “gimme hat” because United States feed and farming supply companies would give them away as promotions to farmers, truck drivers, and rural workers. Other people started wearing them in the 1970s when companies like Mountain Dew, Budweiser, and John Deere started giving them away at truck stops as advertisements. Today, these hats aren’t just associated with rural, blue-collar workers. Now everyone is wearing them and lucky enough for you, The Big Hat Store carries mesh trucker hats for big heads in a variety of colors and styles.
For hunters and outdoorsmen, the rigid structure of the hat provides good protection from falling leaves, sticks, and debris when you’re out in the woods. The stiff structure of the hat also provides a good place to attach patches, light badges, hunting and fishing licenses, and other authentication items. It’s also beneficial for hunters and fishermen that need to use two hands and can’t take off their hats for long periods of time. The mesh allows cool air to flow over the head to prevent sweating, which makes it easier to concentrate. Now outdoorsmen with large heads have a place to shop for trucker hats for big heads because we carry 3XL and 4XL sizes in several different colors. And, because they have a tabbed adjustment strap in the back, these hats are sometimes called snapback caps because of the snap you hear in adjusting this tabbed adjustment strap. But, due to the size of our caps, our customers often call them snapbacks for big heads.
