Types of Baseball Cap | 41 Styles and Different Kinds of Baseball Hats

You must’ve seen it all your life and must’ve thought what could be so special about a baseball cap. Well, you can’t be more mistaken. Even though the baseball cap is one of the most commonplace headgears, the breadth of variety it offers is unthinkable.

The variety can come from anything such as the kind of closure, profiles, fit, decorations, brims, and so much more. You might have never wondered how much depth a baseball cap designing has.

Further, with technological advancement, caps now have Bluetooth, Flashlight, and whatnot. So it calls for a deep study into the styles, types, and features of baseball caps. So without further ado, let’s delve deeper into baseball caps.

What is a Baseball Cap?

A baseball cap is the most basic headwear you would ever find. It is the go-to accessory for most people and for most purposes. You can wear it while running, working out, being a dad, or being a rock star.

The cap that fits snugly to your head, has a brim, curved or flat or somewhere in between, and almost everyone wears it, is your average baseball cap.

41 Types of Baseball Hats

1. Snapback

Snapback Baseball Cap is slightly different from the usual baseball cap. This difference is easily identified by any person looking at the two caps placed side by side; however, it is always better to put things into words. So to explain, the key difference lies in the nature of the closure.

They have a snap or an adjustable closure at the back. One strap of the closure has holes while the other has nubs that fit into the holes. The larger the number of holes, the more adjustable is the cap, and greater the chances that it fit most head sizes; however, adjustment is limited to the number of holes so not every cap can fit all sizes.

2. Fitted Baseball Cap

The key feature of a Fitted Baseball Cap is that it is non-adjustable. The wearer has to pick the right size based on his head-size to wear the cap. They have no closure, no elastic, or no other arrangement that can make them fit the head of any other size.

Apart from the lack of a closure, the cap can take any form or shape. It can have a flat bill or a curved bill, it can be structured or unstructured, high profile or low profile. So it is not a style categorization but a fit categorization.

3. Flexible Fit Baseball Hat

As the name suggests, Flexible Fit Baseball Hat can fit most wearers of different head sizes. This is owing due to the presence of a buckle, velcro, or hook strap at the back. They can also have an extra fitting adjustment in the form of an elastic inside the lower edge of the cap.

The ones with elastic are mostly made of wool, velvet, or similar-looking material and have a baggy look. Many sports teams have this as part of their uniforms, making the players look even more stylish.

4. Strapback

Strapback Baseball Cap is fits perfectly on the wearer’s head. It is one of the most common baseball cap styles. This cap’s key aspect is the strap at the back has buckle attached.

This arrangement makes the cap adjustable according to the wearer’s head size. It makes the cap a great solution for wearers who love wearing a well-fitted cap.

A Strapback cap is appropriate while playing sports because it doesn’t fall off the wearer’s heads while running or because of the wind.

5. Hook and Loop Back

Hook and Loop Back Baseball Cap is similar to the Strapback because it too fits well on the wearer’s head; however, the difference is in the closure. Hook and Loop Back Baseball Cap has a velcro or hook closure instead of a buckle closure.

It is perfect for those wearers who don’t prefer a buckle because the buckle can break at times, and then the cap becomes useless. However, the fit is slightly loose because of the fixed placement of the hooks and the fixed length of the velcro strap. This makes wearing and testing for size necessary as one size doesn’t fit all wearers.

6. 5-panel Hat

Panels are the pieces of cloth sewn together to make the hat. As the name suggests, a 5-panel hat has 5 pieces of cloth sewn together; however, the placement may or may not be circular.

It can have lateral placement with two pieces on the sides, two at the center covering the top of the crown and one at the front.

To make the cap more attractive, at times, the panels are of different colors, and the seam is of a different color altogether, so that it is visible. The fashion preference keeps evolving and is subjective to each wearer. At times, some wearers prefer all panels of single color too.

7. 6-panel Hat

As mentioned previously, panels are the pieces of cloth sewn together to make the hat. In a 6-panel hat, 6 pieces of cloth are sewn together in a circular placement that looks like pizza slices or an umbrella. 6 panels are the most common way of designing a cap.

Most of the time, the panels are of the same color, unlike the 5-panel hat. The shape of the cap can vary. The only thing that creates the difference is the number of panels, which has to be 6.

8. 7-panel Hat

It is quite logical that the 7-panel hat will have 7 pieces of cloth; The arrangement is a hybrid of the 5-panel and the 6-panel hat. Four of the panels at the side and the back are similarly arranged as in the 6-panel hat. However, the two panels in the front are smaller and covered by the 7th panel horizontally, similar to the 5-panel hat.

This 7th panel is of a different color or has a logo or some other kind or decoration to make the cap look more attractive.

9. Dad Hat

Dad hat has a few unique features, such as an unstructured crown and a curved rim. It can have 5 or 6 panels and, at times, an embroidered logo at the front.

These are different from Flexible Fit Baseball Caps because they sometimes have elastic at the lower edge; however, the Dad hat lacks this elastic fit. Therefore, at times, it is even oversized for the wearer.

Due to the unstructured crown, the Dad hat is a very lightweight cap. One of the most frequently asked questions is about the difference between Dad hats and a usual baseball cap. Well, the answer lies in the front lining. Baseball caps have a front lining while the Dad Hat doesn’t.

Dad hats have become very trendy in recent times and are very commonly worn by dads of all ages.

10. Trucker Hat

A Trucker Hat is a 6-panel hat with the net or mesh panels at the back and sometimes at the side, but the front panels are cloth. Because of this feature, it is at times also called a net cap.

These caps are given in gratis to truck drivers and farmers as a means of promotion. The cap has the logo of the company for advertising. This practice is more common in rural areas. These caps are cheaper to produce as compared to the usual cotton baseball caps.

At times, these are also used in place of hairnets in kitchens and other hot working environments.

11. Low-profile Baseball Cap

As fashion has evolved, the usual baseball cap has undergone some changes too. One outcome of such evolution is the Low-profile Baseball Cap. As it can be understood from the name, the crown of this cap is slightly lower. This results in a snug or a tighter fit. Typically, the crown height is 2 to 3 inches.

A smaller crown makes Low-profile baseball cap more desirable for the following reasons:

  • They fit well on smaller heads; therefore, they are in greater demand among women and adolescents
  • They are lightweight and can be easily packed and carried away.
  • Better fit leads to a lower need for adjustment

12. Mid-profile Baseball Cap

Compared to Low-profile Baseball Cap, the Mid-profile Baseball Cap has a higher crown but still shallower than the usual Baseball Cap. Typically, the crown height is 3 to 4 inches high and is structured.

The fit is slightly deeper than a High-profile cap; however, the brim’s slant is steeper. As compared to the low-profile cap, a Mid-profile baseball cap has a slightly loose fit, which some wearers prefer, finding it more comfortable.

Baseball players prefer this profile the most as this is neither too tight nor too loose, but just right.

The high-profile baseball cap has a crown higher than 4 inches. When pulled down so that the tip of the cap touches the tip of the head, the lower end of the cap can reach the wearer’s eyes. Compared to low profile and mid-profile caps, this action would only lead the cap to reach on or above the forehead.

High profile caps have a loose or comfortable fit and are ideal for wearers with a bigger head.

14. Structured Baseball Cap

The structured Baseball Cap has a stiff crown. This is due to the presence of a hard material such as buckram behind the front panels of the cap. Because of this reason, a structured cap’s crown is not foldable and doesn’t lose shape easily.

However, where there are benefits of the structured crown, there are some disadvantages also:

  • It is heavier and some wearers find it very uncomfortable
  • It is less adjustable, therefore, the wearer needs to thoroughly check the size of the cap before purchasing it

15. Unstructured Baseball Cap

An unstructured Baseball Cap doesn’t have the extra support of the buckram or any other stiff fabric. Due to the lack of this support, the cap can lose its shape when it is not worn or when it is packed in a suitcase.

Some caps are made of just the cloth, and therefore their crown can fold completely. Only the visor remains intact. These caps are best for travelers.

However, Unstructured caps too have some disadvantages. These are less durable and can tear easily, but simultaneously, they can be washed easily and are lightweight. It is up to the wearer which feature of the cap is most desirable for him.

16. Distressed Baseball Cap

A distressed Baseball Cap is an unstructured cap having a curved brim or bill, as many people like to call it. The reason why this cap is called a distressed cap is because it has a worn-out look.

It uses faded or stonewashed materials and can have slight rips at various parts of the hat to bring this look. Similar to the ripped jeans, this also brings a certain roadster style to the wearer.

Most times, wearers prefer denim Distressed Baseball Cap to create the casual street-smart look, pairing it with a white shirt, ripped blue jeans, and shades. It can be of other materials too, but denim caps are the most popular.

17. Ponytail Hole Baseball Hat

One of the favorite solutions for long-haired wearers is the Ponytail Hole Baseball Hat. The hole is situated somewhere near the tip of the crown and the lower back. It is perfect for a high ponytail.

The wearer can take their ponytails out of the hat and need not worry about spoiling their hair. It is also much more comfortable because the wearers don’t need to wear their hair down while wearing the cap, and the fit is tighter or snug.

Generally, women prefer the Ponytail Hole Baseball Hat, but even men who have long hair can wear it.

Unlike the Ponytail Hole Baseball Hat, the Cross Ponytail Baseball Cap has a complete panel removed for pulling out the hair. However, the panel gap is covered with zigzag spaced out crossed straps made of cloth or string. These create several sections for pulling out the ponytail.

A Cross Ponytail Baseball Cap makes it easier for the wearers with thicker hair to pull out their ponytails.  It gets very difficult to pull out the ponytail with thick hair with just a small hole in the Ponytail Hole Baseball Hat.

Further, the Cross Ponytail Baseball Cap also gives the wearer an option to wear the ponytail the way they like, high or low or somewhere in between. This makes it more desirable to men as compared to the Ponytail Hole Baseball Hat.

The pom is generally made of a furry material with the pointed fur coming out of it in all directions. It is soft to touch and very stylish to look at.

There can be multiple smaller poms, such as one on each side, to make the cap look even cuter, or look like a Mickey Mouse hat, but with a pom twist. These are mostly preferred by women and can also be worn with semi-formal wear such as long coats.

The flap can be detachable or foldable to make the cap wearable in other seasons also. It is made of warm or furry material. At times, there is a chin strap or a tie to tie the separated flaps together under the chin. The styles vary but the purpose remains the same, protect the ears from getting cold.

Most times, the cap is made of cotton. However, in many very hot countries, the cap could be made of net or mesh or combined with cotton.

Mesh makes the cap much more breathable and prevents the accumulation of sweat. This makes the cap wearable for a long time and on very sunny days.

A balaclava is a cloth face and head covering, also known as a ski mask, at times. When the head covering is shaped in the form of a baseball cap with a visor, it is known as a Balaclava Baseball Cap; therefore, it is a hybrid of the two headgears.

There are two reasons why wearers prefer this type of Balaclava. One is that unlike non-baseball cap balaclava, the head covering stays in its place. It is very comfortable while skiing because it can be irritating and dangerous having to adjust the balaclava all the time.

Another reason is the visor prevents dust and snow from entering the eyes while skiing. Some skiers don’t feel comfortable wearing ski goggles, and a Balaclava Baseball Cap is the perfect solution for them.

25. Military Baseball Caps or Corps Caps

Military Baseball Caps or Corps Caps have a few distinctive features. The most natural feature is the camouflage colors. These are very common because the caps should blend in with the surroundings. However, if it is a non-camouflage cap, then the colors are generally matching the uniform.

Another distinctive feature is the shape of the cap. Although some military forces use the standard shaped baseball cap with a rounded crown, the true Military Baseball Cap has a straight and flat crown. This implies that the crown has the same height throughout. The visor can have a light tilt or more; however, the crown is flat.

Most military caps will have a coat of arms embroidered at the front. The casual ones also have the same to make them look more authentic.

The bill has very slight curves on the sides, and the center is only slightly raised. If you see the cap in isolation, you might not even notice the curve until you place it on a surface and it doesn’t fall flat.

When kept side by side to a flat-billed baseball cap, the slight curves are prominently visible. To maintain the shape of the bill, it is made of a stiffer material.

The cap’s crown can have decorations of the same color as the middle sandwiched layer, such as crown holes, top button, or even the logo threadwork. This makes the cap more stylish.

However, the sandwich layer also makes the cap a little heavier. Those wearers who prefer a lightweight cap prefer not to go for the Sandwich Bill Baseball Cap.

The top button and crown hole also get the same color. This makes the at Piping Brim Baseball Cap very fashionable to look at.

Another style addition to your wardrobe, a Short Brim Baseball Hat, brings the wearer a boyish look. The brim is so short that it would barely lie perpendicularly above the wearer’s nose. To be more precise, the brim is less than 2 inches, sometimes only 1.8 inches long.

To go with the short brim, the crown is also short or low profiled. At times, the brim might not even cover the crown’s entire front and protrude from only a portion at the center.

A Short Brim Baseball Cap looks very attractive with shades, and that is a practical combination too. Because the brim is short, sun protection is limited, and shades fill that gap.

The cap conveys a fun and relaxed image of the wearer and is extremely lightweight and travel-friendly.

Also, to bring more attention to the bill, the crown is round and extremely small. Even the thought would make a person laugh; however, these Long Brim Baseball Caps are iconic, and not everyone can pull them off. So if you dare to be iconic, try to pass the Long Brim Baseball Cap test.

How to Protect the Baseball Caps When Traveling

One way to protect a baseball cap while traveling is you go for a foldable or unstructured baseball cap. It can fold easily and fit in small spaces. Always keep sharp objects such as scissors or nail cutters away from your cap; they can mean destruction.

If you are carrying a structured baseball cap, follow the below rules:

  • Fill the cap with small objects such as socks or handkerchiefs. This will prevent it from losing its shape
  • Place the cap upside down to prevent placing something heavy on the crown and breaking it
  • Place other clothes around it to pack it tightly and avoid movement
  • Wear the cap if you still fear spoiling it

What Is the Difference Between a Golf Cap and a Baseball Cap?

The true terminology of the golf cap is ‘Flat Cap.’ It is the cap with the oblong shape, the slight slant in the front, and a very small brim that is almost covered by the crown slant. So the golf gap differs in various aspects from a baseball cap. Some of which are as follows:

  • Shape: The baseball cap has a circular crown, while the Flat cap has a long slant at front
  • Brim: Baseball cap has a longer brim compared to a Flat cap
  • Fit: At times, Baseball caps have a very snug fit, but most times, the Flat cap has a baggy fit
  • Panel Arrangement: Baseball caps can have several panel arrangements, including the pizza-slice arrangement, while a Flat cap has only straight panels sewn together at the back because it doesn’t have a circular crown.

What to Wear With a Baseball Cap?

Baseball caps mostly go with casual wear. You can pair it with a T-Shirt and jeans look, accessorize it with shades and wear a pair of sneakers to complete the look.

However, if you are going for a fancier baseball cap, such as the baseball cap with a pom, then you can pair it with chic winter wear such as long coats, skirts, and boots look.

The jazzy caps with LED, or flashy decorations go well with a baggy sports jersey, and loose baggy pants look.

So it depends on which cap you decide to wear. In fact, you pick up the cap first, and then you choose the rest of your attire.

How Much Does a Baseball Cap Cost?

A baseball cap can cost anywhere between $1 or $100 or even higher. Many factors add to its cost; some of these are mentioned below:

  • Material: A leather or a wool baseball cap will definitely cost higher than a cotton or a mesh cap. The material itself is costlier
  • Decoration: A pom baseball cap or a studded baseball cap will cost higher because of the added decorations. Some cap lovers even get those studded with precious jewels, and that definitely costs higher. It will go beyond the $100 mark too
  • Features: A ponytail cap has an added advantage, and therefore the wearer pays more for it, even though the material used is lesser
  • Functionality: If it is a Bluetooth baseball cap, it will cost somewhere around $1000 because of obvious reasons. Even a cap with a flashlight or LED will cost more

Final Thoughts

A baseball cap is not as simple as it seems; however, if you have to draw an analogy, think of the color white. You have no limit to what you can do with it. You can style a baseball cap in uncountable ways.

There is one cap for every occasion except for formal occasions. A chef wearing one can be thought of as a rebellious food genius. A rock star, or a hip-hopper who adds jazz to his performance and personality through his cap. Your cap can be your best friend on night time excursions and your music player on your morning run.

So to simply put, Baseball caps are not just for baseball. They bring charisma to your personality.
