What head gear does everybody use?

Recommended Posts

The topic on worst/best camo got me thinking I do not use headgear as efficiently as I should.

What does everybody else wear/use to break up their image as well as keep cool?

Although I don't wear them too often, mostly due to either heat or me forgeting them, I like patrol caps, boonie hats, and my PASGT.

Bandana sometimes, most of the time nothing. Movement will give off your position far easier than headgear.

 

 

Then again, I don't have long locks of blond hair like some people. :lol:

For the longest time I always wore some kind of head covering, if for nothing else to keep from being bitten by bugs (mostly mosquitoes).And I have worn everything from baseball caps to clown wigs. If I had to choose what I like to wear most I would say a boonie hat. I like that I can wear most headsets with it and goggles and still keep it comfortably on my head (in part thanks to the draw string). I also feel that the hats brim can be a very useful tool in itself such as blocking the elements and tilting it slightly it can better hid your head/face. I have even worn them in CQB environments with success. Its pretty versatile.

 

Shwaisey you might also look into something like Zico wore, its a head and shoulders covering. I cant remember exactly what it is called right now but it was some kind of snipers veil

I usually use an OD triangular bandage under all my helmets, or alone. If I run a helmet it's usually my bump, but here soon I'll be running a modified CVC helmet. Helmets for helmet cameras.

I always have to wear some form of headgear... The sun shining off my gingery red hair somehow makes a perfect target for snipers and heat seeking missiles. :unsure:

 

Typically I like to wear my Protec. Its comfortable and serves as an excellent mount for my helmet camera. The only thing I don't like about it is how it increases my profile, making a slightly bigger target. Its always good to wear a bandana or multiwrap under it too, helps with the sweat and for keeping bugs out.

I wear no head covering, my head is to large and a big enough target as it is.

Long hair and long beard... :smiley-taunt:

 

Now seriously, a bandana is quite handy to keep sweat out of your forhead and thus, eye pro.

Being the GINGER that I am, usually I wear some sort of boonie cover. Half of the time I forget headgear. lol.

Also being a ginger, I prefer my shemagh, just have to know how to wrap it right for it to stay on properly.

 

Gingers are taking over. Woo!

It is the Viper Hood, made by Tactical Concealment, Inc.

 

I also prefer the boonie cover. Simple, keeps the sun out of your eyes, and the vented ones keep you relatively cool.
