Need a gift for that special climber in your life? This month we’re running new product recommendations every weekday until the holidays. Check out the rest of the list.
I can’t promise you that this trucker hat will help you climb V18. It will not, unless you are already capable of climbing V18 and need a little confidence boost from a sweet hat. On the other hand, it does look cool as hell. Sun Day Afternoon’s Northwest Trucker Caps feature hand-drawn art of Oregon’s mountains and beaches. The bright colors of the illustration make the hat stand out. I received compliments from several people. In two months of testing, the Northwest Trucker Cap showed no signs of wear or discoloration. It’s well made. I could tell you that the mesh back helped keep my head cool, and that the internal sweatband wicked my forehead dry, but you know how hats work. You’ve worn hats before. This hat is all about the artwork. Take a look at the photo above and ask yourself if you think it looks rad. If the answer is “yes,” then it’s a great way to add some cool outdoor art to your wardrobe.
