Notch Classic Fitted Black Operator cap is one of our most popular tactical hats. If you're looking for an operator hat that is the perfect balance of form and function, look no further. You can wear it as it is or simply stick your favorite morale patch on the hook & loop field on the front of the hat. We've also replaced the button on top of the hat with a 1" x 1" hook & loop patch to eliminate the discomfort when worn with ear protection!

Features include:

  • Patented Notch technology
  • Works with virtually any style of glasses (SEE THE PERFECT FIT GUIDE)
  • 2" x 3" front hook & loop patch
  • Hook & loop patch on top in place of button
  • Breathable A-Flex stretch fit fabric
  • Stylish structured low profile fit
  • Premium moisture wicking sweatband
  • 97% cotton, 3% spandex

Which notch location do you need? CLICK HERE

We offer our patented notches in two locations: Standard Notch and Terra Notch (named after our co-founder).

The Standard Notch (pictured above) is designed to work with most wrap-around or sport style sunglasses, shooting glasses, and safety glasses. These styles have a curved appearance, designed to conform to the contour of the head.

The Terra Notch is designed to work with most aviator or fashion style sunglasses as well as prescription eyewear. These styles are more squared off at the corners, causing the frame to sit further away from the face.

Available sizes: XS/Y, S/M, L/XL, XL/XXL

Hat Sizing: To determine your Notch stretch-fitted hat size, measure the circumference of your head where the sweatband of your hat will sit. If you don't have a tape measure, you can also use a string and measure it against a ruler. Find your measurement on the size chart to determine your hat size. Stretch-fitted hats may vary slightly within the same size category.

When in doubt, order the next size down.

5 of 5 Excellent Duty Hat January 23, 2020
Reviewer: Rabbi Yossi - Magen Am USA from Irvine, CA United States  
This is our GO TO hat for our security teams, when going on detail. Looks sharp and the notch feature really makes it look 'right'.
Color will fade with prolonged use, but the structure and construction holds up to a lot of abuse.

5 of 5 Best hat I own January 23, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Fate, TX United States  
Hard to find hats for big heads. This is extremely comfortable especially with as much as I wear sunglasses and range glasses!  Perfect fit and function!

5 of 5 Top Notch Cap January 22, 2020
Reviewer: Robert Ellard from Dublin, Dublin Republic of Ireland  
The Cap I bought was the operator with Notch. I put my shades on and bent the beak so it mated with the glasses. Its perfect.
The hat rides lower on your face and the material is soft and comfortable  But one. You'll never buy another brand after this.

4 of 5 Great Hat January 22, 2020
Reviewer: Eric Blackwood from Semmes, AL United States  
This has been the best fitting hat I've purchased. And it looks great. I am a Sheriff's Deputy and wear it on duty. The only problem I have had is when I take it off it pulls my hair a bit. Other than that, I love this hat!
