Custom Ampal 5 Panel Camp Hat
100% Cotton Twill/Mesh Upper
Continuous Sewn Down Twill Striping Around Hat
Woven Label & Tonal Embroidery Details
The mesh hat was a concept we had wanted to visit for a few seasons. In the summer time it is ultimately functional, but in the last decade or so, it has been destroyed almost to the point of no return, by Ed Hardy hats, promo trucker hats, Affliction and the such.
We wanted to celebrate the storied past of a classic - a return the the glory days of the mesh snapback, but in 5 panel form. One of our favorite design elements, are the sewn down stripe appliques. They were used both in the athletic and automotive/motorcycle racing world, however most hats only had them on one panel. We wanted a pair of clean continuous stripe going around the entire hat, which ended up being a production nightmare, but our team nailed it.
Enjoy our classy nod to the mesh hat.
The trucker is dead/Long live the mesh 5 panel.
