Snapbacks are a staple at CraniumFitteds.com.  We have hundreds of snapback styles to choose from.  We carry snapback hats from brands like Mitchell And Ness, New Era, 47, American Needle, and Zephyr; we also carry the following leagues: MLB, NHL, NBA, MLS, NFL, and Collegiate.

 Snapbacks were popular in the 90's and came back strong in late 2009 and it hasn't let up since.  Snapbacks have been adopted by people from all over the world not just the United States.  Japan, Australia, UK, France, Brazil, and Chile, just to name a few, have all been riding the snapback wave for some time now.

We carry exclusive snapbacks, meaning that a lot of the styles you see on our shop can only be found here at our shop.  This is great for those looking for a unique cap.  

 

What Is A Snapback

 

A snapback is either a 5 panel or 6 panel hat, usually made from an acrylic/wool blend.  The crown is structured via fabric reinforcement on the front two panels.  The crown is deep and the visor is typically square, except for New Era snapbacks, they make most of them with the same round visor they use on their fitted hats.  And of course, a snapback is not a snapback without a bartack on the rear.  The bartack is the two tabs that snap into one another giving you an adjustable fit. 

 

How To Clean & Maintain Your Snapback

 

If your snapback is just dusty, rather than using tape to grab the dust, lint or other fibers off your hat, which will leave tape residue on your hat and that attracts dust even more dust and becomes almost impossible to clean.  You want to use a hat brush to gently remove the dust and fibers.  If you have some stains or marks, you can use a specific hat cleaner made by New Era but never ever throw your snapback in the washing machine as it will destroy the structured shape of the snapback.  And that will be very hard to fix as the reinforcing material on the front 2 panels becomes creased.  It is still possible to restore the hat but it's time consuming and the end result isn't perfect.
