Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The hat is great, as is the quality. However, the hat is different than the one pictured. It more closely resembles the A-TAC FLG in color (more green than grey) and has loops which are not pictured on either one. I assumed it was a mistake so I returned it and re-ordered only to receive the exact same model. The tag that was on both hats had a designation not listed on the Amazon site. (Can't remember what it was.)
Anyway, I've decided to keep it. It's a nice hat, but the description/color is not accurate.
Overall, the hat appears to be well made, but with a couple of cosmetic flaws. Two points: 1) The product description lists the fabric as 100% nylon. I bought it hoping that was accurate, but expecting it was not. To clarify, hat I received is 50/50 NYCO rip stop. 2) Several reviewers said these hats run small, so I ordered a 7 1/2 rather than a 7 1/4. The 7 1/2 is swimming on my head, so the ATACS-FG hat is true to size or maybe even runs a bit on the large side. I'll have to figure out a way to mod an adjustable headband so I can wear it comfortably.
I ordered this after carefully reading reviews of many competing hats on Amazon. Then the next morning I realized we have a Ranger Surplus store not too far away, and I meant to head out there and buy an official Boonie and not this "inspired by the real thing" that I bought online. (i.e. I was considering cancelling my order). But it came in and I decided to give it a shot. I am not military so I can't comment about how this compares to Army-issue ones, but this hat is fantastic--hands down the best sun hat I have ever owned. I liked it so much that I didn't bother driving over to Ranger Surplus. Someday years from now maybe my next hat will be the real thing, but for now I have no need, this Tru-Spec one is great.
