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

  • Primary material: 100% ripstop cotton
  • 2x3 inch patch-friendly VELCRO® on the front
  • 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 - Ripstop Cotton Full Panel (Black) is rated 4.28 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Get the nylon mesh, not this one. The dye used on these is weak. I wore it for the third or fourth time on a hike and it was hot, so I was sweating. After I got back and washed it, the dye came out from the hat. Goruck said it looked "tougher" and therefore not a problem, and I ended up with a hat that I can only wear when I'm doing dirty work outside. I bought it to make it my everyday hat, but I ended up throwing it into the painting clothes pile.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from no soft stitching under bill I have an earlier tac-hat in ranger green (gen 1?) that I love. I ordered this black one as a secondary. Unfortunately, these are now made differently. 1. overall it doesn't seem as soft and comfortable 2. previously all their hats under the bill had a soft fabric that you could stick patches to. this is no longer the case (when I bought this). 3. the size seemed off compared to my gen 1 ranger green tac-hat. just didn't fit my head like the other

Rated 3 out of 5 by from TAC Hat fell short I am a bit disappointed with my TAC hat. I do like that it's lightweight and durable, but it doesn't "break in" very well, or get to be a comfortable hat over time. Although I've owned (and worn) the hat for some months, when I put it on it feels like someone else's hat. This is far from a blanket condemnation of GoRuck's products, as I own 2 GR-1s and think they're the best packs money can buy. The hat? Not so much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Hat I love this hat and wear it all the time with various patches. My only issue is with the fit, most likely due to the shape of my head. But I wish the hat were a little deeper so that it could be pulled down a little more and didn't ride so high on top of my head.
