    Perfect hat!
    I love the flex fit hats. Mil-spec Monkey adds just the right amount of loop field for large patches. The 550 cord at the back of the hat is perfect for a little dummy chord.
    ProsGreat fit with no "ducks ass"! Relaxed colors. Relaxed fit.
    ConsIt's not free. Gets wet when i wear it in the shower. Won't stay on when I'm sleeping No auto install avaliable.

    Not the same
    I just received my hat and have owned two prior to this and this is not the same quality, fabric is thinner and the bill does not seem as sturdy
    ProsDecent price, flex fit sizes are spot on
    ConsChange in construction will likely force me to find a more durable hat

    Can't be beat!
    I like this hat so much, I own three! The oldest is about a Blk S/M which I wore nearly every day while bike commuting in all varieties of weather. The color has faded like you're favorite Saturday morning T-shirt, the elastic and fabric have stretched a bit making it a bit loose for a windy day, but even more comfortable to wear, and the velcro is somehow like new (it never collected grime, or got fuzzy and unusable like cheaper hook and loop). The other two are the same hat, one in OD Green, and another in Blk. The only notable difference between the OD and Blk other than color, is the OD shows sweat stains where the brim meets the cap, but that's expected. On Fit: The last fitted team hat I owned was 7 1/4 and I wear a S/M in this hat. The S/M fits a bit snug and breaks in within a few weeks of wear. I have a small forehead, so most caps ride too low over my eyes, and if the brim is bent, tend to ride on top of my range glasses. I do not have that problem with this hat.
    ProsGreat fit, Great Material, Long Lasting, Comfortable, Durable, Good Looking, Great Value

    Great features, but lacks quality
    Ordered two of these hats so far (one from LAPG and one from MSM), both were defective. Bill is flimsy (received creased/bent) and sizing is off (possibly due to the loop panels)--too small, even with the range of fit. The second hat has defectuve stitching on the brim connected to the elastic band, and the rear loop panel has a tear on the seamline. Both companies are in the process of replacing/refunding my purchases, but it's been difficult to accept such low quality items from such a reputable company like MSM, who is known for having top notch gear. I will update this review once both companies have resolved these returns. Also, MSM is selling this hat for much cheaper ($24 w/o shipping) than LAPG--even with shipping, as well as more sizing options. FYI:
    ProsGreat design, feature rich, lots of loop areas for patches
    ConsBad QC, sizing (too small)

    Love It!!
    I've had this op hat for about a year now and I freakin love it! It's comfy, sleek, works great with almost all patches. It's sturdy and has held up thus far, I wear it all the time! I have the loden color and it hasn't faded at all. Definitely recommend this hat!
    ProsFits most if not all patches and is comfortable.

    Not what they used to be
    Still a great hat, still well built and very functional.
    ProsAdaptable, tough and well made
    ConsIt seems like the bill isn't made of the same material and is a little more flimsy than previously made units. Also, not sure what they're dipped in, but some chemical in it will make your skin inflamed.

    THIS is quality!
    I've had my eye on this cover for some time now, I came to LAPolice gear due to the pricing is cheaper. Received my order in a timely manner. I wore the cover for the first day, dawn to dusk to find out that it really doesn't need any breaking in. The flexfit band makes the cover a very comfortable fit. I recently decided to go on a wet run (Man, I tell you it was pouring) it took fifteen minutes for the material to become saturated. Even then the material doesn't let anymore water through. My head was still pretty warm when I came home. Ample stitching and hook and loop aplenty! Patches hold very firm. Brim is stiff so I have no worry's of it ever losing its shape. All and all very good product! However this is not the weatherproof version but it performs.

    very poor quality
    I purchased the hat in black. Within a month the hat was so faded it was brown. This was just casual wear rarely outsid! Also the loop broke on the back. I cut the velcro parts off and sewed them to another black flexfit hat it's also really easy to attach a paracord loop to any hat I'm very disappointed in the lack of qualityi n this item...

    built like a tank
    Bought one for myself and it was so popular the guys at work decided to use them for the uniform hat and all three of my kids wanted their own. LA Police Gear had them in both sizes and colors for a good price.
    ProsVery comfortable. The Velcro on the front and back is large enough to sport most any patch. Even six inch name tapes fit.
    ConsNeed to have a smaller size small. The small medium was too big for my Wife.

    Great hat
    This hat is really good. Tons of Velcro and the most comfortable flex fit I've ever worn. Shallow fit-doesn't sit high off the head on top
    ProsLots of Velcro, 550 loop on back for easy hanging, awesome fit
    ConsNot very breathable, you will sweat in it on hot days

    Happiness is a big head
    I have a huge head... It's freakishly large I'm told... This hat fits. I have custom ordered and tried other flex fits with little luck. This is a great hat with great features.
    ProsGenerous fit Solid pitch attachment Great style
    ConsColor was more green than I anticipated

    Totally low profile, very sleek and comfortable fit. You won't regret this hat

    All of mine are pretty worn in at this point, so I couldn't give you an accurate measurement. However, because of my short forehead, most hats end up being too deep, and wanting to sit over my eyebrows, or set the brim on the rim of my glasses. The small/medium hat fits a bit snug for the first few weeks, and is deep enough to provide shade from glare, without pushing the brim into my glasses when I have range muffs on.

    It's definitely not low profile, but it is the most comfortable hat I've ever worn. They also come with retractable ear plugs that are hidden in a pocket over the ears. Highly recommended for shooting.

    I couldn't tell you with exact measurements, but it is a low profile hat. I've had two over the past five years or so, one that was the DLUX and one RAW. The DLUX was definitely a bit lower profile but they both sit very close to your head.

    My head is 23 inches around so I'm thinking a large...?
    1 Answers
    Yes, that would put you at about 7 3/8 with hat sizes, so the L/XL would be the best selection for you.

    I saw that you guys have a modified version of the flex fit system for your hats. I wear a S/M with those and a 7 1/4 for all my military head gear. Would the S/M be a better fit, or should I move up to the L/XL?
    1 Answers
    a small medium should fit you just fine.
