      Well I was looking to replace my old fleece cap, seeing that it's almost 20 yrs old. However, it's lined between layers with a plastic layer that keeps head dry in rain. Plus it is cut to also cover ears and neck. I was hoping for this to be similar, but a no go. Maybe usable for light duty use, but for something I can wear every night, probably not. Not to forget, my current cap is still looking very decent despite the age.

          Comments about Watch Cap:

          I got this hat last winter with the 5.11 5-in-1 Jacket, the jacket was great, still is. This hat however, not so much. I got an extra large and it wouldn't even cover my forehead, and it didn't even come close to my ears. I washed it after I wore it twice, due to riding-along with a local EMS provider and it got smelling like nasty stuff. When it came out of the dryer, it had no shape left to it at all, so washing and drying it utterly destroyed the thing. I was surprised by the lack of quality of this item, being from 5.11. Needs a lot of work

          Very small, not very professional lookin

          I am a very petite person with small head. I usually get the smallest hat size. Accordingly, I got the S/M. It is too small on me, I can't imagine it fitting anyone but a child. I had been hoping it would look professional enough to wear on the job (as a park ranger) but it doesn't really. So my advice is go for the largest size if you have a normal sized head and if you have a large head probably don't bother. It is warm though/

              Not very effective

                    I do not have a large head but the lg/xl seems way too small and does not cover my ears. Material seems too thin for cold weather wear. Maybe if it covered my ears it would not have seemed so thin. This is the first 5.11 product I have been disappointed with.

                        A:

                        I've always had good results with machine or hand wash in cold water with mild detergent (don't use anything scented if you're hunting with the cap) and dry on low or air dry.
