Snapback hats and fitted hats are 90% the same style of baseball caps with one major difference...the back of the cap. With a fitted hat there are no opening on the back. Fitted hats have complete closure on the back of the hat and requires the hat wearer measure their head in order to get the right size cap. Fitted hats also known as "fitteds" have approximately 12 sizes ranging from size 6 - 8. Snapback hats on the other hand have an opening on the back with two plastic strips that "snaps" into place.
