Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2017: Headsweats Product Overview
I had a chance to stop by the Headsweats booth at 2017’s Outdoor Retailer event in Salt Lake City, Utah and check out the head wear they offer. So, what did I see, and what did I learn? Well, Headsweats has been around making these quality pieces for athletes since the 80’s so they have a bit of experience. With that, you know their hats are more than just a style, although I love the large selection of different styles they do have, especially for their Big Foot line of performance trucker hats which I will get into shortly. Right now let’s see some other shelf items they have for us.
Traditional Performance Hats | Visors | Beanies
As you can see, Headsweats offers a plethora of styles and options for their performance head wear. You have effective, breathable, moisture wicking, mesh hats, visors and beanies to fill up your closet twice, and them some on the coat rack. There are so many styles and color options that you can have a head piece for every day of the week, for every different outfit you have. I don’t think you have to worry about finding the right style for you here. It looks like they have everything, or at least something for everyone.
That’s very good! I personally favor variety, and a good run is just not as enjoyable without it, or at least not as fashionable.
Now, Let’s move on to the product we came to see, their popular Trucker Hats!
Headsweats Performance Trucker Hats
It’s safe to say that performance trucker hats are fairly popular among runners, or becoming more popular I should say. Not everyone is into them yet, but those that do love them and those that are not yet familiar are starting to notice them more and more on shelves and others’ wardrobe. I am.
I first noticed performance trucker hats at my local sporting goods store while shopping for outdoor equipment. I won’t brand name drop here, as this is an overview of Headsweats performance trucker hats, but those I did see were pretty cool. I did buy one, and I do wear it occasionally. Do I like it, yes. The style is fitting. Does it perform, absolutely. Will I buy another, likely. Do I like Headsweats performance trucker hats, of course. With styles like these how could you not! I own one of the Bigfoot Collection and I have not failed to turn heads when I run down the trail in it. It’s a cool hat, with performance features. It’s as simple as that.
Simple, effective and affordable, that’s what we want, right? Features include a performance sweatband for moisture management around that key area for effective sweat absorption, and a well ventilated backside for proper airflow. The last thing you want is sweat in your eyes, as we all know, that’s not very fun and with a well designed hat you can avoid that. What more do you need? As mentioned before, They keep it simple, stylized, varied, and affordable.
Some Performance Trucker Hat Style options
As with their more traditional performance head wear, you can get the trucker hats with a style for every mood, and outfit you may have.
I believe that’s a squatchalope i see on the bottom right! For those that love a fun style, these are very cool. You can collect them all, collect a few, or get your favorite but you may not be able to stop with just one. In my opinion the look isn’t extremely professional, and I think it’s obvious Headsweats isn’t taking that route with their Trucker Hats, or at least with some of them. The one’s I got to view are more of an visually enjoyable piece that would look cool lined up on hook, sort of how you would see a marathon medal display rack set up. That’s at least how I see it. Don’t get me wrong, I would wear the heck out of every one, but also be afraid to ruin some of the really neater styles.
Performance Trucker Hat Bigfoot Collection
From the beach to the mountains, you can now find bigfoot anywhere. Headsweats has a large line of bigfoot themed trucker hats that are pretty cool. This may be their most eye catching collection, simply because everyone wants a piece of bigfoot, I suppose.
As I said before, these are cool hats. They have many stylized themes to choose from, and with the bigfoot collection you get the creature incorporated into the backdrop in one way or another. It’s sort of like, where’s waldo, on a hat, bigfoot style. How’s the actual material? Well, it’s what you would find in any respectable performance hat. Yes, it’s up to par. I’d like to note that the design embroidery is really good quality as well.
So there you have it. A variety of neat, fun hats that you can collect. Get one, get them all. They are affordable, so won’t break the bank and are performance based so you can get your run on. They are made of moisture wicking fabric, perfectly breathable, lightweight, quick drying, comfortable and in a one size fits all package.
If you want something fun, and in a variety of options, check them out. There’s something for everyone.
