Trucker hats: the wardrobe staple you probably already have (but definitely need more of).

The trucker cap is a staple of your wardrobe and you probably have a few already. But you could always use one more. We found five stylish upgrades to your current trucker cap, and they’re all under $30.

Crown Trails Headwear GSMNP ($24)

This hat has a snap-back adjuster, a good-looking bear adorns the front, and 8 percent of the proceeds benefit the National Park Foundation. Bears not your thing? Crown Trails has a bunch of different hats that benefit parks, from Acadia (with a moose on the hat) to Olympic (with a fish).

Black Diamond Wool Trucker Hat ($22)

Black Diamond takes a simple trucker hat shape and builds it out of warm wool to give it a classy, almost throw-back style. We dig the understated design and simple off-center logo, and because it’s wool, it’s the perfect après-ski lid.

Coal Hauler Low Hat ($30)

The Hauler Low has a lower profile than Coal’s standard Hauler hat, for when you want to keep things aerodynamic. Made from organic cotton blended with polyester, the Hauler Low features a precurved brim and plenty of mesh for airflow. And check out that sunset patch.

You get to pick your spirit animal with Prana’s Journeyman hat. Are you a lone wolf? A wise owl? A bear that needs a hug? Regardless of the animal you choose, you’ll get a mesh-heavy hat that’s a blend of cotton and poly with an adjustable snap-back.

TGR Higher ($21)

There are so many things I love about this hat: cool mountains, a slogan that’s open to interpretation. But mainly I like that it’s not overbranded, so you’re not a walking advertisement. It’s also made from a cotton-acrylic blend that’s super light and has a snap-back you can adjust to fit your head.
