A snapback hat is a part of almost every wardrobe and often the most worn item of clothing. Although it is a modern street fashion accessory, the snapback is one of the oldest trends that has been highly appreciated by trendy skateboarders, singers and athletes.
So what’s the difference between strapback vs. snapback hats?
A snapback, they’re highly customizable for both businesses and customers. Snapback hats share the same adjustable quality of strapbacks, though their designs are a bit different.
Snapback is always made of plastic with buttons to snap, while strapback closings usually are made of the same fabric as the rest of the cap.
When a cap doesn’t have closure but instead has the back part fully covered with the same fabric as the rest of the crown, the cap is called “fitted”. This means that the cap is not adjustable and therefore it is of great importance to find a cap with the correct size, which perfectly fits the circumference of the head.
