The Blasting Cap was designed after spending years downrange modifying our own ball caps to be worn during SOF missions. Each feature on the hat is strategically placed to offer the operator a true comfort fitting field cap. The hat is built on a FlexFit® mesh platform providing form fitting comfort that keeps the operator cool during intense activity.

The exterior features two 3.5″x2″ velcro squares on the front and back for adhesion of flags, morale patches or personal identifier patches. On the top is a 1″x1″ velcro square for your IR patch during night operations. In addition, we’ve added a 1″x1″ velcro square on the inside for IR patch storage when not in use. On the inside front panel is sewn a bright VS-17 panel for increased visibility when needed. Lastly, we’ve included the RE Factors of different explosives on the inside tape for quick reference for EOD, Special Operations or demolitions personnel.

    Just got the hat today. Looks good and good fit. I usually wear a size 7.5 and I ordered the large/XL.

    I received this hat for Christmas, been wearing it off and on since. I love it. Recently took it on a 2 week trip to Arizona, hat has been through all kinds of pickers and other abuse. Still looks new. No pulls at all. The best part of the hat is the fact that it stays dry the entire time hiking. Other hats get filled with sweat and stay soaking the entire day. I want another!

    Just bought one of these recently and I am very pleased with it. The quality of the material is superb. It fits perfectly and the bill maintains shape unlike other hats. Very very pleased with it.

    This is an excellent hat. I bought the multicam pattern in honor of what we wore in AFG. The build quality seems excellent and the fit and finish are superb. I might have to get another one in woodland camo.

    So I originally had the GoRuck tac hat, but that heavy material in the south Georgia sun was God awful. Initially I was worried about the durability of this hat, but have had no issues. Also, buy the size recommended by flex fit for your head. I made the mistake of buying a size down because I liked a “tighter” fit, it became highly uncomfortable, left a nice red ring around my pale dome, and ultimately all it did was bust out the elastic, so when I purchased this hat I made sure to buy the appropriate size and have had zero problems with fit as well.

    I believe this may be the greatest hat I’ve owned. True to size, durable, great great product. I will be purchasing many more. A customer for life!!!!!

    Ordered this hat in black and it is very good quality. I must have a huge head because of ordered the L/XL and it was tight as hell. It did start to loosen up after a couple days wearing it and now it is pretty comfortable but still a tight fit so I don’t have to worry about it flying of in the wind or anything. Overall very satisfied with it.

    I haven’t worn a cap since the FlexFit hats we bought when my son played youth league baseball 10 years ago. I always liked the way they looked & fit. I got my tan Blasting Cap in today and love it! Pretty sure I’ll need a black one for winter also…

    I have had the Woodland Cap for about 3 months now. I love it. Before I bought it, I was skeptical When I first looked at the pictures above, it looks like the stitching around the velcro is a light green color. However, That is not the case. It is more of an olive drab and matches the rest of the hat very well.
