Heading into 2022, the headwear experts here at Outdoor Cap are continuing to expand and improve our headwear selection. Being one of the largest companies building headwear today, we are committed to give our customers a wide range of high quality caps to select from. We give customers the best hat possible to match and fit their logo so they can wear their brand proudly while being comfortable and stylish. The hat experts at Outdoor Cap consider each and every hat made here a piece of art. Our research and development team works hard to make sure each piece of art is up to date with today and tomorrow's trends. Headwear preferences can change drastically through time, but the need for a high quality, well-fitting cap remains year in and year out.

As we begin the new year, we have twelve new stock styles our customers can chose from. The new OC771PF and the new OC504 are great styles to wear while being active as they are equipped with a wicking sweatband and are both made with a resilient polyester fabric. We have also added two new camo patterned styles with an American flag theme. Three of the twelve new styles are knits that are ideal to wear during the cold winter months. These styles that can keep your head and ears warm on a chilly day are the OC806, OC807, and the OC808. We also have added the OC902, which is an unstructured hat with a heavy washed patch. It allows you to have the relaxed cap feel with a turn-key embroidered patch look from a stock item. Our selection for lady caps has also grown by adding the OC770L. This cap based off of the OC770 is a great low profiled trucker cap for women. With structured mesh back caps now a mainstay in the headwear business, we have added some great styles that include the HPD-615M, the OC571, and the OC771P to our collection. 

HPD-615M Premium Rugged Trucker Cap

HPD-615M Weathered Cotton Mesh Back Cap

HPD-615M is a traditional six-panel weathered cotton meshback cap with a rugged low-profile modern trucker look that favors workwear and outdoor clients. Available in three colors for 2022 including Brown, Navy, and Olive, this cap has hard pigment dyed front panels with a wonderful hand-feel while also adding a rugged look to the cap. All three colors have a khaki and duk color block pattern to complement the primary front panels. They also all come with a complementary duk button to top off the cap. 

Key attributes:

  • Rugged weathered cotton front panels
  • Meshback with hook/loop tape closure
  • Available in 3 colors

Great for:

  • Embroidery with monochromatic designs or complementary colors
  • Leather patches - genuine or faux
  • Customers that want that Carhartt look or something similar

Expert Tip: Duk fabric, aka 'duck' or 'duck canvas' is simply a plain woven cotton fabric that more tightly woven than canvas. The term as we use it here is also meant to denote the rusty yellow color common to this fabric and often assigned this name.

HPD-615M Inventory available beginning June 2022.

 

OC571 Premium 5-Panel Trucker Cap

The OC571 is our new 5-panel version of the coveted OC771 Ultimate Trucker. Everything you and your customers love about the OC771 is here including a great comfort sweatband, clean lines, branded snapback closure, and a nice selection of 12 modern and traditional color options including the one picture in slate, charcoal, and rust. 

For customers looking for a really clean, modern look but in keeping with the trucker aesthetic, recommend the OC571 with a single front panel and free from eyelets. This combination makes the decoration stand out from the cap. 

We recommend using this hat with large patches and embroidered art that require the space and clean lines the OC571 offers. 

Key attributes:

  • Same OC771 structured trucker shape customers have come to love
  • 5-panel clean design
  • Contrasting construction stitching on visor

Great for:

  • Breweries, agri-business, or any brand with a big bold logo to show off
  • Looks amazing with complementary colored sublimated patches in large shapes

Expert Tip: The trend of corner patches can look good on 5-panel caps but we recommend considering a 6-panel for these types of designs. Because 5-panel caps have so much space on the front panel, a cornered patch can look lost or unfinished. Make sure you go big enough with your patch to fill the space whether you center or corner it in the frame of the panel.

OC571 Inventory available beginning March 2022 with multiple colors in stock now.. remaining colors arriving in September 2022.

Expert Tip: For caps like this with big bold designs that are a key part of the hat, use complementary artwork that doesn't try to overpower the base design and pattern. Using custom leather patch shapes or tying in the pattern to the background of a sublimated patch make the cap feel personalized to the customer.
