Best Patagonia Trucker Hats Reviewed

last updated Mar 02, 2019
Trucker hats are popular among outdoor enthusiasts for their large sun-shielding coverage in the front and typically breathable material in the back – not to mention they're undeniable style points as you savor time with mother nature. In recent years, more and more runners are donning outdoor trucker hats over more expensive technical alternatives, and Patagonia leads the way with some of the best trucker hats on the market.

When we run towards the sun, especially when the sun is low in the sky, a trucker hat proves that it has lots of benefits. The materials used for making the hats are lightweight, highly durable and come with adjustment bands to ensure a secure FIT. They are stylish, printed with nice features and can easily be folded up and stowed.

What's the deal?

Trucker hats seem to go in and out of style and, let's face it, whether you like them or not is a matter of preference. If you want to start using a trucker hat, Patagonia offers some of the best--and a lot of them are activity -specific and offer lots of protection from the sun.

You can wear them anytime, anywhere!

The best part about trucker hats is that they are lightweight, breathable, and comfortable. You wear them anytime, anywhere--without having to worry about discomfort. Since most of them are adjustable, you are sure to stay comfortable throughout the day and ladies have a spot to pull their ponytail through if they have longer hair!

Other Factors to Consider

Bottom Line

The vast majority of Patagonia’s hats feature a mesh back, adjustable snapback sizing, attractive designs and colors, and affordable prices for a high quality, durable product. When selecting a Patagonia hat, keep in mind that the Patagonia LoPro trucker hat versions have a ballcap design ideal for smaller head sizes. This time of year (approaching the winter holidays), many of Patagonia’s hats are temporarily out of stock or marked up on outside sites due to limited quantities. The price variation seemed to be the only negative aspect that runners reviewed about Patagonia’s line of hats.

The best Patagonia hats are lightweight, breathable, and foldable material without sacrificing style points.--and their trucker hats are also wildly popular and worth investing in for your next outdoor running adventure, especially since they protect you from the sun as well!
