Outdoor Cap Celebrates 40th Anniversay With New Realtree Styles


Stylish, practical and durable hats by Outdoor Cap have been covering the heads of outdoorsmen and women for many years. In fact, 2017 marks Outdoor Cap’s 40th anniversary. Althought it is now one of the largest and most respected headwear suppliers in the US, the company had very humble beginnings.


In 1977, the founder, Paul Mahan, started a modest hat company out of his home. Sales Unlimited, as it was called in the early years, filled Mahan’s house with a full truckload of product, often allowing only a small aisle to his bedroom. Now, Outdoor Cap has grown to employ more than 300 people. It operates in three locations nationwide and services 14,000 customers across multiple channels in the team, promotional products, hunting/fishing and retail markets. The corporate offices are based in Bentonville, Arkansas, and the three distribution centers are located in Arkansas, California and Texas.


By recruiting quality product testers, Outdoor Cap is able to develop and revise its headwear designs to perform in all types of environments and activities. Its headwear is especially loved by outdoorsmen and women who appreciate the durabilty, comfortable design and of course, Realtree camo and logo, featured on the hats.


“Outdoor Cap’s Realtree headwear line is designed for the modern day hunter,” Ben Roberts,

senior vice president marketing, said. “Not only do we have comfortable fits and custom shapes, but we’ve also included performance fabrics with moisture-wicking and scent-control technology. For more than 20 years, Outdoor Cap Company has proudly partnered with Realtree to outfit our customers with top of the line headwear in all of their favorite camouflage patterns.”
