Patagonia Duckbill Trucker Hat

True To Size
June 27, 2021

Quintessential running trucker

Finally replaced an older version of this hat and couldn't be more stoked with my choice. Wore this for a super hot 100-mile event and its perfect for dipping in creeks to keep the head cool. Breathable and flexible--no hat headaches! Darker fabric under brim keeps reflection to a minimum.

Nice hat overall

Overall this hat is a perfect fun beach hat. The mesh on the back of the hat is pretty large in person but it does have a lot of ventilation.

Love this hat!

Super comfy. I am going to order another one bc my bf wont take it off! ;)

Do-it-all Unique Trucker Hat

Looking for a one hat quiver killer? Then look no further! This hat is comfortable, packable, and allows excellent airflow for those hot runs or summer sends. It even looks good as the daily driver. Make more colors PLEASE!

Found a keeper

I love this hat.! The bill just flows perfectly with the shape of my head. Its very breathable and super comfortable. The turtles on the hat are just the cherry!

May 13, 2021


Great feel and look. Adjustable strap cinches tight. Very absorbent sweatband inside but can also accommodate additional sweatband. Stays in place when running. Soft bill retains shape but still bends easily.

Great fit

Perfect for running. No sweat was dropping., even if i have long jogComfortable

Awesome hat. Perfect for running and makes you look dope

Super comfortable and absorbing keeps the burning sweat out of your eyes.

March 21, 2021

Pretty good

I really like the material and the breathable fabric but the bill doesnt stay down like other hats I use

February 15, 2021

Functional and Stylish

I bought this hat to keep the sun off my head while surfing. It is outstanding, very comfortable, stays light and comfortable when wet and dries super fast! I love this hat! Ive tried multiple hats to keep from frying my bald head while surfing and this is my favorite by far! I wear it in the surf almost every day and it seems very durable.

Great trail runner

Light hat that provides ample shade and keeps my head dry. Bill has a somewhat rigid bill, but stands up to some flexing and bending and holds its clean look without permanent creases. Great hat for a five lifestyles, especially long trail runs or hikes.

November 20, 2020

It's a Hat

It does exactly what I want a hat to do. Cover my bald head. Lightweight, packable, wicks moisture and dries quickly. Stylish. It's the Swiss army knife of hats.

November 15, 2020

Functional, but dont love the shape

Nice materials, pretty cool for summer running, but I was disappointed in the look/fit. The photos make it look like a modern rounded crown hat, but mine has a pronounced point to the crown which looks kind of stupidIm not sure if thats the way they allare, or if mine was just poorly sewn. [It might not be an issue if it came in multiple sizes so I... Read More could pull it down a bit lower, but its a pretty deep hat on my medium-sized head.]

The Perfect Hat

So, this is the perfect hat for exercising. It keeps the sun and sweat out of my eyes. I actually wear this to rollerblade. The fact that it's washable is important; I usually destroy other hats with white salty deposits. But you just pop this hat in the washer and it comes completely clean. The white part does yellow over time but it goes ba... Read Moreck to white after washing. The shape of the hat bounces back, too, no matter how you handle it. The only negative part is that this hat isn't the perfect fit for my tall head. I'd like it to sit more like the guy in the picture, but there's quite a bit of room between my ears and the hat. I did say that this hat fits true-to-size, and it does. I have this problem with other hats, too. I just wish they made a larger size for people with bigger, taller heads. It doesn't affect my rating.

July 13, 2020

Awesome hat!

I love this hat and it gets plenty of compliments. Alas, I have a very large head and it wasn't quite tall enough to be a perfect fit unfortunately.

good all synthetic trucker hat for running

I was hoping this would be more form fitting on my head but I felt that it was king of sitting on top of my head. I tried it around the house but my head was just to big for it. I used two snaps which made if fit around but it almost didn't feel deep enough for my head. I ended up gifting it to my sister-in-law and she loves it. Just not the r...

Too Hot

This hat looks good and I like the soft(ish) bill, but has a few flaws: It is hot. I was hoping for a good warm weather hat, but the front is really warm and makes my head sweat. However, it isn't showing any sweat stains yet. The smaller size and soft structure of the hat makes it so you have to wear it fairly tight, otherwise it kind of cre...

Best hat ever. Pretty please, some better colors. Black is hot and sea foam is lame.

June 26, 2020

Cool hat!

Well made, good fit! Love the style!

June 20, 2020

Funky & Fast

The trucker front is actually a great sweat sponge (come on runners you get it.) The duck bill folds up and out of the way. But what sold me was the alligator and cotton pattern. Love the fit, love the style and it stays through all conditions.

June 19, 2020

More sizes please

One size fits all is not a great plan for headgear. I like these truckers for running because they are pretty absorbent, do a good job of channeling sweat off of my head, don't get smelly super fast and hold up to washing really well. However, I'm a smallish guy and this hat looks ridiculously huge on my head. The crown swells outward giv... Read Moreing me a bulbous, "Mars Attacks" profile and the basket of the hat is deep enough that the hat sits down on my ears and pushes them outward in a Prince Charles kinda way. C'mon, you're Patagonia for God's sake! Offer S/M/L choices or something.

Runs very small

Doesn't fit my head at all even fully extended, wish it came in a couple sizes or even just Small/Large. Sad I'm forced to return as I love it otherwise.

June 17, 2020

Runs small

The details on this had a great call and it is lightweight, Bremmer is very flexible without bending, works sweat very well. The only drawback is that it runs small, specifically from the base of the head above the ears to the crown of the head. I really have to pull it down far and since the back very tight to make it feel like it is not going to ... Read Morefall off. However I do have a large head, typically wear anywhere between 7 3/8to 7 3/4 hat size.

Runs very small

I love the idea behind this hat... the materials and style are great. But... I have a normal sized head (I'm 5'10" and wear a medium everything) and I had to loosen the back strap all the way in order to put the hat on, and it's so shallow that it won't even pull all the way down onto my head. The hat that I received absolu... Read Moretely does not have the same dimensions as the one in the listing (unless the guy in the pics is very small).

Best Running Hat Hands Down

The bill is super absorbent and does a fantastic job keeping sweat out of my eyes, and the hat is light and comfortable. Can't ask for much more!

October 10, 2019

Great hat, Wish it was floppy

This hat is incredibly comfortable! It's great for casual wear wicks sweat, and breathes pretty well. It does sit a little tall on you're head just because the foam front is quite large. I also wish it was a little more similar to the traditinal duckbill hat from patagonia, a little more on the floppy side so you could shove it in your po...

Dude, I look awful in trucker hats. But, I love the material of this hat, especially the breath ability of the vented mesh area. So, i removed the trucker padding with a razor blade and scraped any remnants with a butter knife. The hat slouches just a little but on the front panel but I’m so glad I did it. Great fit, so breathable, great fabric for... Read More trail running. Washes well which is good because it takes on sweat. Can’t say enough about this hat. Will purchase another and modify again.

September 13, 2019

Nice hat

Is a little on the smaller size. Great material I've been wearing it for golf and it doesn't show all the sweat stains like other hats. (Arizona heat)Nice color but the little zip clasp on the back does move the size every time you put it on.

Go-To Hat

Functional and good looking. Highly recommend!

August 24, 2019

This is the best!

I've been looking for a cap which i can use for running, cycling and just for casual wear. I've spent a lot of time searching in the web and patagonia caught my eyes. I watched 2 youtube reviews of their duckbill and duckbill trucker from their customers. This trucker cap is fashionable and has plain and simple designs. So, crossing my fi... Read Morengers with closed eyes, i punched in my orders on their online shop, this one and 2 duckbills(not trucker) knowing that the sizes of those might not fit my big head haha.. Package arrived in my doorstep in just 3 days here in singapore(amazing!).. Unboxed. Fitted. And yes!! It is a perfect fit for my big head. Actually it is still roomy maybe because im hairless. Just for reference, i am M-L or in some cases L in cap sizing. I think my head size is within 59-61cm if i remember it right. To you reading this. This trucker hat is awesome!

August 19, 2019

Great hat

Lite weight and very breathable. Just what I was looking for!

Awesome hat, fits great and breathes well. Love it!

Great hat - very tall on the head

I like this hat. I have the unstructured duckbill running hat and this structured one. It absorbs sweat really well, is light on the head, and keeps its shape well. However, it is crazy tall - I feel like I'm wearing a firefighting helmet. I would love to see a middle ground between the unstructured head-hugging duckbill cap and this tall one.... Read More

Duck bill trucker

Good sun protection. Stays cool. I like the glare reducing black underside on the brim. I don’t have a big head and it fits snug when strap is all the way loose. Do not get this style hat if you have a large head.

Duckbill Trucker Hat

The hat is great, sits up off my head to provide ventilation underneath the non mesh portion. The melon heads complain about it being too small, but I could go a bit smaller. I must be a pea head. I have trucker and regular duckbill, like and use both, depending if I want to put in pocket during run or not. Great for diverting sweat and blocking su... Read Moren on the trail or road.

The best hat so far

I’ve has this hat for many years now, I use it and throw it in the washing machine, air dry and still look and feel as the first day. I have a “big head”, so yes indeed, it runs small, but not crazy small just a little bit tight, mine is adjusted all the way to the end and it still tight. Long story short, I’ve ran many marathons with this hat and ... Read Morestill love it!

June 21, 2019

Best Hat!

This hat is so comfortable. Great for adventuring or casual wear. The brim is not stiff, which tends to bug me with other hats during activities. The hat stays on while skiing fast too! It can also be shoved into a backpack without loosing its shape!

June 14, 2019

Too shallow

Looks sharp and I like the material, but it's somehow simultaneously too shallow and too tall. It feels small and rides high & vertical on my head. As a result i'm mostly wearing it backwards during runs to keep the sun off of my head and as a sweatband.

May 9, 2019

Runs too small

Many, many reviews have the same complaint. They run small.

Tough to beat

Great hat. Nice and light. Fabric handles sweat better than most.

March 27, 2019

My absolute favorite!

I find it very hard to find a hat that looks good on me, but no issues with the duckbill trucker. I'm 5'6" and don't have a massive head, and I LOVE this hat. I'm just sad that the "wish tails" design isn't available anymore.

March 20, 2019

Nice hat too small

Agree with the other reviewers. I typically wear a L/XL hat or 7 1/2 fitted cap. This hat is too small and my wife is now a proud owner of a duckbill trucker

February 8, 2019

Nice hat... Too small :(

Like the hat, however it's uncomfortably small for my head and has been handed down to my wife (who wears it all the time). Please consider making a large size!

August 8, 2018

Love the hat, not the sizing

I gave the updated version a try for a few days and to my dismay, the sizing was not updated and it still runs too small for anyone with a larger head. At a 7 5/8s hat size this hat creates uncomfortable pressure on the forehead making it too uncomfortable to wear anywhere outside of the water. The elastic band does not stretch far enough to accomm... Read Moreodate the stretch required to fit right. Please make this hat in a S/M, L/XL like so many other hats you offer.........

Perfect Trail Hat

I've had this hat for a month and plan to buy a few more. It has been soaked with copious amounts of sweat and countless hours on the trail,yet no sweat stains or smell and still looks brand new! Adequate brim for shade or flip it backwards for additional air flow.

Best Active Flat Bill Hat Ever

I've had two of these hats since they first came out and can say they are my go to hats from anything from trail running to whitewater rafting. Breathes and dries incredibly well.

Excellent for warm weather activities

I've used mine for two years,mainly when I run to keep sweat out of my eyes. It's easily washable in the washing machine to keep it fresh,breathes really well and is super comfortable.
