Estimated stock: 0

Made in USA 

The Mesh TAC Hat is a simple, military-style tactical hat, while keeping the secure, low profile fit with six panel construction. Four panels are Cordura 1000D — same as we use in our rucksacks for its ripstop protection and strength to weight ratio. The middle two panels are made of a non-stretch mesh which allows more air to flow, keeping your head cool even in warm weather.

  • 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 – sewn 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. Pairs perfectly with a shemagh

The Standard TAC Hat is size 7 3/8 with a circumference of 23" and the Wide TAC hat is size 7 3/4 with a circumference of 24". Both sizes of TAC Hat have a 4" crown height and 3.5" of adjustable VELCRO.



TAC Hat Breakdown by GEAR PATROL

"It’s quite possibly the last hat you’ll ever need or want."

A. The GR TAC features an internalized label that’s heat-pressed to its cotton sweatband. The cotton is essential because it serves not only for comfort but for critical sweat absorption. A good thing for those killer ascents.

B. The trick bill is made from not only a soft material that makes it easy to touch, but the underside is also similar to velcro loops. That makes it easy to personalize or use as a stealthy stash point for map lights, patches and other tactical needs. Easily one of our favorite features.

C. Like other GORUCK products, nothing beats the patina of well-worn age, but there’s also a multitude of personalization options through the use of patches.

D. The GR TAC dome is comprised of six panels, four are made from the brand’s signature black 1000D Cordura. In this case it’s uncoated for better breathability and still exhibits better waterproofing than plain ol’ cotton. It’s not the lightest stuff out there, but it’s tough as hell. Man up, you can handle a few extra grams.

E. The two middle panels are made of non-stretch mesh. This is where the bulk of airflow happens. GORUCK has tested the GR TAC with Green Berets in far more miserable conditions than you’ll ever be in. Not a single complaint. Not that that we’d expect them to.

F. GORUCK’s founder Jason McCarthy brings up a good point. The button that resides atop most ballcap domes is pointless (and the apogee of many a middle school shenanigan). So they came up with a solution. Ditch it. And good riddance because the GR TAC is all the better without it.

G. The hat’s face is endowed with the easily identifiable 2×3 inch velcro patch in GORUCK’s signature Reverse Flag. Leave it as-is or place a patch on it. We’d opt for the former. Either way it’s just about perfect on the GR TAC.

H. No explanation here. There’s an adjustable velcro closure to make sure the GR TAC snugly fits your cranium.
