MTN MAN TRUCKER HAT
The mesh back polyester/nylon truckers hat is the modern day cowboy hat. From horseback riding, lasso swings buckaroos to powder riding Jackson Hole ski bums, everyone know the trucker is the hat of choice. This handsome hat looks good two stepping at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, Après Skiing at the Mangy Moose or shopping for treasures at the Brooklyn Flea.
Like all the mainstays of the western "fashion", the trucker's popularity is based in utility. Just like 100 year ago, if you go outside all day under the glaring big sky sun without a hat on folks can tell "you're not from around here?". The truckers design and construction make it technically the finest head wear for outdoor pursuits. The vented back and high crown allow for quick venting of extra heat built up from chasing a herd of elk up a steep canyon wall, stacking fire wood on the deck or a spring time hike straight up glory bowl for a powder farmer to harvest some corn. Cotton "frat boy" baseball hats turn into a steamy wet rag after just a little bit of perspiration. The polyester/nylon construction dries almost instantly which makes it great for whitewater rafting, surfing or wicking off sweat from a 20 mile loop run in the Tetons.
