The headband is the most significant difference between a good quality cap and a poor one. I know; it's something you most likely don't look at when buying a cap. This is why that is where a lot of manufacturers cheat.
When you think about it, this part of the cap should be one of the most important, since it's directly in contact with your skin and part of your face.

Many manufacturers will cheat on the fabric, especially on the structured cap. Since it gives a false impression of heavier weight.
Hold the cap close to a light and look how see-through it is. Unless you are looking at a nylon cap or lightweight fabric used in a running hat. If you wiggle the cap left and right, you can tell if the fabric is light or not.

High Crown: This cut is very high and is often accompanied by a flat brim to balance its height. It was initially popularized by the hip-hop movement.
Mid Crown: Many cuts fall into this category. The majority of trucker caps are structured (rigid) caps, as are many baseball team caps.
