Snapback hats have made a huge comeback in recent years. The snap back hats are baseball cap style hats where size of the hat is adjustable by a snap on the back. The strap is usually made of plastic while the cap is made of different fabric materials. The two pieces of the strap have studs and corresponding holes on the other side, and the studs are made to snap into the holes. Since the studs in the strap can snap into the holes, and they are located at the back of the caps, they are referred to as snapback hats. There is a wide variety of snapback hats available in the market.

Snapback hats come in two main varieties. Some have a plastic mesh body with a foam front and a bill reinforced with paperboard. These inexpensive hats are often known as trucker cap or gimmes because of their use as promotional items. The original snapback hat maker started selling high fashion snapbacks in the late 80s and controlled most of the more popular designs. Music icons such as Tupac Shakur, DrDre, and other hip-hop and rap musicians made snapback hats soar in popularity by wearing them in music videos, promotional pictures, concerts, and movies such as Poetic Justice and Boyz n the Hood. These snapback hats are also available for specific sport and their corresponding teams.
