New Cap from Mil-Spec Monkey

Mil-Spec Monkey recently released his latest headgear creation, the MSM CG-Hat Mesh RAW. Based on the original Cool Guy Hat DLUX which featured built-in tethered hearing protection, the latest model is a bit more streamlined and features Grey mesh panels to keep your noggin cool.

It’s a classic American ballcap design with a few modifications necessary for “tactical” use. Naturally, there is plenty of Velcro but it doesn’t overwhelm the cap’s appearance. 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 in place of that annoying riveted button found on traditional ballcaps. Here, MSM runs you through the various caps as well as their new earpro system.

Currently available in two sizes with one unique color scheme, the Loden fabric panels combined with Grey mesh panels and OD Velcro looks pretty good. The sizing is important because it is a Flexifit cap so no floppy adjusters in the pack.

Hat tip to Tactical Fanboy.

    What Jacket/smock is MSM wearing in the picture?

    Without MSM, I believe 90% of the Armed Forces wouldn’t have their “Freedom of Expression” via “Morale” patches, lol. 😀

    Just curious, what is this dudes background? I want to know more about the guy who is responsible for roughly 90% of the ass chewings I’ve received in the last few years due to people, who I may or may not be responsible for, wearing “morale patches”. CSM’s rarely seem to care if I’m actually in charge of someone or not when they are about to start yelling, but that is neither here nor there. Never understood why guys have the urge to cover their body in goddamn patches.

      It could always be tattoos.

    • straps says:

      He’s an LFer from back a ways (probably other forums too, not sure about that).

      He started out as an Environments guy on the “America’s Army” Internet gaming/recruiting platform, which ironically enough was served out of that bastion of red-blooded patriotism that is the SF Bay Area.

      Pretty much downhill after the Team America and HEY F**K FACE patches LOL.

      Good dude. I saw him on the freeway this morning…

    I suppose you’re right. I’ll take neck patches over neck tattoos.
