TAC Hat - Full Panel (Black)

TAC Hat - Full Panel (Black)


USA hat manufacturing costs more. But who else proudly overbuilds hats? Nobody. Our TAC Hat uses the same tough 1000D Cordura as our rucksacks and has a low profile fit, similar to tactical hats worn by Special Forces soldiers. We removed the button on top because under a helmet or hearing protection or in a thousand other situations, it’s unnecessary and annoying.

Our TAC Hat pares the military tactical hat down to its essentials while keeping the secure, low profile fit.

  • Primary material: 1000D CORDURA®, the same military-grade material found in our rucks
  • 2x3 inch patch-friendly VELCRO® on the front
  • The Brim: its underside is a patch-friendly, soft to the touch material that functions like VELCRO® loops
  • The top button: we removed it because it serves no purpose and it hurts when you wear Peltors or other hearing protection
  • TAC Hat Label – heat pressed onto the sweatband inside the hat. No exterior branding
  • VELCRO® closure
  • Six (6) panel construction

You can customize the TAC Hat with any patch of your choice. But no matter what, make it yours. The TAC Hat only gets better with time, use, and abuse.

TAC Hat - Full Panel (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the same.. but still a good hat. A couple years ago I ordered the original Full Panel Tac hat and instantly fell in love. Incredibly durable, easy to clean and looks rad. Not long after they stopped making the hat and I wished I had ordered several more! I was so happy to see they brought it back as my original one has faded from black to brown. I ordered 3 and waited excitedly. Sadly once I opened the box I could tell the materials used were not the same. The 1000D Cordura is definitely thinner than the original. The bill and soft underside also feel different and is thinner than the original. The original hat fit my head perfectly but sadly the new one is cut differently and sits and fits much differently than the original. Only time will tell if it is as bulletproof and durable as the original. I was hoping to remove the velcro patch front to make a "slick" version but they now permanently heatpress the velcro on now. With all that being said it probably is still the most durable hat out there... time will tell. But its not has awesome as it once was.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what it once was This is my 5th GoRuck TAC hat that I've purchased. This does not feel like the same quality that I've come to expect. First, as other reviewers have mentioned, the hat feels a little thinner. I don't know if that is necessarily a bad thing as I like to wear it while working out, but that's why I also purchased the mesh version. Second, this hat arrived with poor stitching in a small area in the back ( see photo). Nothing a little super glue wont fix I'm sure. While I'm sure GoRuck would replace this I've already put the hat in hot water and the dryer in order to shrink it since I have a small head and these hats already come large. Except for the Mesh TAC hat I recently purchased fits much smaller then any of the previous hats I had purchased from GoRuck in the past. It seems the sizing is somewhat inconsistent on the newer versions. Overall still a good hat and one of my favorites just be aware of the differences for those looking to replace an older version.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what it used to be... Honestly, pretty disappointed with the new full panel Tac Hat. I've had my coyote full panel for over a year and it has seen the hardest use of any hat I've every worn. And, being a balding guy, I wear hats a lot. My coyote Tac Hat is thick and durable, with an awesome bill, and stitching that is obviously heavy duty. It has even become a different color as the cordura absorbs my work. The new black full panel Tac Hat I got is almost the polar opposite from my coyote though. Seeing the full panels become available again, I jumped on both a black and mcam. But, upon getting them, I was pretty let down. The black is verrry thin compared to the mcam, but even moreso to my coyote. No way is it the same 1000D. The sizing is WAY off and it is much lower profile. I don't have a small head at 7 3/8, but am swimming in the black one. The Mcam fits with all of the velcro used. The sizing and profile of my coyote is perfect and thought it would be the same...the bill is also shorter and thinner than my original. Thought it would be time to give my coyote a break on its rotation, but I just keep wearing that one instead. Guess the Tac Hats aren't what they used to be. The Mcam is alright, it's a little thicker and fits a bit better. I haven't worn the black once though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome hat This hat is nice. Compared to the RIPSTOP hat, It seems "bigger" as in it sits lower on my head. This is also more comfortable. I haven't gotten too sweaty in it yet, but I love it already.
