These 5 trucker hats are perfect for summer rounds

Looking for some cool summer headwear? Try a trucker hat!

If you haven’t tried wearing a trucker hat, let me be the first to tell you: You’re missing out!

As a Southern California native, I may be biased, but my love for trucker hats knows no bounds. So what is a trucker hat exactly? While iterations vary slightly, they are basically defined by a snapback closure, mesh backing and defined front peak. Some newer models eschew the peak for a traditional baseball-cap front panel, which softens some of the hat’s edginess for a more refined look.

As far as summer headwear goes, though, the trucker is exceptional. The mesh backing ensures cooling airflow and ventilation during warm rounds, and hey, wearing one just looks trendy. The best part? Just about every golf manufacturer has climbed aboard the trucker train, so there are plenty of great-looking models to choose from.
