2022 New Stock Headwear Styles

By Ben Roberts on Feb 10, 2022 @ 10:51AM CST

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.
