Strapback hats are quite similar to Snapback hats, the only difference being, strapbacks use a poly band or adjustable leather to adjust the head diameter. On the other hand, a snapback is basically a baseball cap style hat. All other design elements are similar to modern, flat-billed, fitted caps as worn by professional baseball players. From many years they are perceived as less expensive than baseball fitted caps and have become one of today’s hottest fashion trends.
