RE Factor Tactical Blasting Cap

The RE Factor Tactical Blasting Cap is one of the most specialized operator hats around. We designed this hat after spending years downrange modifying our own ball caps to be worn during SOF missions. Each feature on the hat is strategically placed to offer the operator a true, comfort fitting field cap. The Blasting Cap is built on a flexfit, mesh platform to offer a form fitting cap that keeps the operator cool during intense activity.

There are two 2.5"x3" velcro squares on the front and back for adhesion of flags, moral patches or personal identifier patches. On the top is a 1"x1" velcro square for your IR patch, an essential piece in personal location during night operations. In addition we added a 1"x1" velcro square on the inside to store the IR patch when not in use. Sewn on the inside front panel is a bright VF-17 panel for increased visibility when needed. We also added the RE Factors of different explosives on the inside tape for quick reference for EOD, Special Operations or demolitions personnel.

    blasting cap hat

    The product itself was very nice. What was kind of annoying was the really high shipping cost. The hat was 27.99, but the whole thing cost me 75$ USD with shipping.

    Very nice cap. Just a few thoughts...

    Appearance and fit are fine. Wondering if the knit mesh is a little "delicate" but time will tell. Do wish, though, that RE tape was used on all the interior seams. On mine, only two items were visible on the single strip - 1 and .92 - and one really shouldn't need a crib note to remember those ;)

    Love these FlexFits!

    Ever since I bough the Arc'teryx LEAF FlexFit hat from SKD, I've been trying to find other FlexFits...they are so comfortable. This one is no different AND you can get tiger stripe! What could be better?

    Looks super well made fits my weird ass shaped head just perfectly. Will run in conjunction with msa sordin earpro and not rub my head annoyingly.

    Great fitting hats

    Posted by Mathew Pitman on 30th Jun 2017

    I am picky about hats because most of them dont fit well unless you like trucker hats. I'm not a hipster or trucker so not my style. I like the way these fit ( i bought two). I dont think you will be disappointed.
