The MSM CG-Hat series has been a hit and they now offer a Mesh variant to offer more heat dissipation for desert dwellers. The foundation is a true FlexFit hat, with the top rivet removed and a good dose of loop velcro added. The front panel is approx 4" x 3" and the rear is 3" x 3" with a 5.5" x 1" strip at the bottom for name tapes. There is even a 2" x 2" diamond up top for IR patches. The end result gives good patch holding capability without looking like a full head of velcro. All edges have been sewn down for super smooth no snag functionality. Just in case, cord hangs from the bottom back as a lanyard attach point if high speed adventure comes your way.

MSM didn't stop the party there and added on the DLUX element, the integrated hearing protection. Rather than having to hold an extra plug case, these are already close to your head and retractible so no fumbling around. Plugs are included, however the user can use any that are screw-in compatible. To deploy, just pull plugs out of the pouches with enough slack to comfortably fit in your ears. When complete, pull plugs out of ears and press each retract button which is the whole side of the retractor. The plugs will now be retracted and can be further tucked into the pocket for a cleaner look. Don't worry, these hats are still compatible with sunglasses and active/electronic ear protection.

2 Sizes: S/M 6 3/4” - 7 1/4” and L/XL 7 1/8” - 7 5/8”

NOTE! Due to the mesh the end result is more loose fit than standard FlexFit hats.

Currently available in: Loden (Greenish Brown) with Loden Mesh / NO patches included.

Available Sizes: S/M, L/XL

    One bad ass hat

    Posted by Ex-Grunt on 2nd Jul 2016

    Fits great, and while I don't need all the "operator" velcro it carries, I might someday put it to use. I got this a hot weather cap, but I may wear it year round. I was going to order a RAW one (without the ear prot) from MSM, but for $2 more and a lot faster processing and shipping, SKD came through. I'll order more from youse guys, for sure.

    Great hat

    Posted by Yevgeniy l on 20th Apr 2016

    Got the hat, nicely put together. As others have written the earpro sit well on the hat. Haven't noticed them in a negative way. The head breathes nicely when wearing the hat, the mesh on the hat is better qualir then a similar Condor hat that I have. Would highly recommend this product.

    Best Ballcap Ever!

    Posted by PhillyThreeper on 1st Jan 2015

    I had been looking at this hat for over a year and it never seemed to be in stock. As soon as I saw it was, I ordered it and couldn't be happier! Not only did I put a few of my swaggy motivational pouches on it, but the ear plugs work great and I hardly even know I have the hat on. It's cool, lightweight, and I may get another one for the future!

    Mesh Tact Hat

    Posted by charles persinger on 19th Aug 2013

    Looked and looked for this hat to come back to be available and I wasn't disappointed. I like the flex and stretch you get with the hat. Large amount of Velcro attachment sites and the best thing are the ear plugs. I can ride my lawnmower and not look for my headphone hearing pro because someone took them off the mower. Buy this hat, it's worth the cost.
