These hats are made in the USA using 50/50 Nylon/Cotton ripstop materials. There’s a 3″ wide x 2″ tall patch area on the front, with the ADR logo sewn into it, so that you can either show off your favorite patch or some ADR love. Please note that the Kryptek hat has a 3.5″ wide x 2″ tall Velcro loop patch area on the front.
The NYCO material used in these hats is stiffer than we’re used to for hats. If you want something softer then check out the Ripstop Cotton hats as they are much softer. Although these are definitely lighter than the Full Panel Tac Hats that GORUCK previously put out the fit and material shape is the same. The stiffness of the fabric is what gives the crinkle just above the patch area on the hat.
The hat adjusts with Velcro (as seen in the pictures) and can fit a wide variety of heads. Please note if you have a giant head then these might not be for you. Sorry, but the truth hurts and we don’t want unhappy customers. The inside features an All Day Ruckoff Cut & Sewn in the USA which looks really nice… but can also be cut out if you don’t like it.
Kryptek Hats: The hats are unstructured which means that they can be rolled up to fit in a backpack easier however it also means that they do not hold their shape.
MultiCam Black: The hats have a slight structure to them where the fabric is rolled back over itself on the inside front panels. Pictures show this better than words (check them out) and this hat has a little more structure than the rest of the hats.

The hat looks awesome. I would agree with another reviewer the black multi-cam is subdued and looks great. There is a double edged sword when comes to the material though. The downside is the material the ripstop 50/50 nylon/cotton doesn’t give much. The good is that the material makes the hat able to hold up to rough activities such as ruck events or OCRs. I still think this material is better suited for backpacks, pouches, or boots, but not so good atop one’s head. The hat is a dad cut, which another thing I like about it. But again that feeling is short lived because I cannot adjust it to fit comfortably or stay on properly due to the rigidness of the material combined with my possibly misshapen head for this hat. I initially thought it just needed to be broken in, but after every handwashing and drying, the process starts all over again. It also doesn’t breathe much so avoiding washings in between activities is ill advised.
Maybe a different ratio for the next round using less nylon (20/80), or polyester instead. I’ve had very few 100% cotton hats that fray or fall apart. My condor hat that is 100% polyester is very comfortable, just not as cool looking as the ADR though. The Black multi-cam with a black on black patch ADR looks amazing.
Subdued Black Multi-cam (always looks awesome)
Very well made
Material is very rigid
Hard to get the right fit/adjustment

Solid… it’s breaking in slowly but surely! This thing barely leaves my head! The camo is IMO perfect… doesn’t “scream” camo… pretty subtle. I have gotten this thing completely drenched in sweat more times than I can count and it still doesn’t even remotely stink… not like every other hat I own! Overall great hat!

Great Hat! Glad that I picked one up as the stock was getting low. Paired this one with a Jolly Roger patch for an awesome look.

Absolute Best Ball Cap for summer rucking! Endured the heat and humidity of last weekend’s DC Star Course! I completed the event under this “cool cover”, without a trace of sunburn on my beautiful bald head! Another neat feature – velcro front allows for placement of your favorite rucking patch! Get one now! Your head will thank you later!

My new go-to everyday hat. Great price, great quality. Like most hats, a little stiff at first, but is breaking in well. Camo pattern is subtle, but cool looking. Not over the top, but still makes a statement. Easily adjustable for my average noggin.
Great looking hat – I got mine as a gift, slapped on a patch, and have been wearing it ever since. I’m looking forward to taking it to my next event.

Nice hat, great company. better cause!

I’m really stoked with this lid. The pattern is low key: not many deerstalkers wandering around SoCal so subtle is best. The ADR Puppy pattern in the velcro is a winner. Really like the look and feel. Well done Brian!

Had some concerns on reading that the hat might not fit my pumpkin head. No worries, fits just fine and is comfortable. Good deal and well made. My new rucking hat for sure. Cheers.

Just got mine today. Wore it to the Ruck Club tonight or the WOD and miles. Love it. Great fit, super comfortable. Camo is dark, but subtle. Of course, it holds a patch (which is key). No annoying button at the top. This is my new go to hat. As I type this, I’m getting ready to go to bed, but… but I’m seriously considering wearing it to bed. Would that be weird?

Great hat! Love the pattern, fit and logo! Awesome quality and the perfect way to display your newly earned patch!

Great looking hat! Best on in my collection of tac hats. Sometimes I wear it with the ADR logo alone. Design and color is great!

This hat checks all the boxes. Tacticool – check, Adjustable – check, Brim to keep the sun out of my eyes – check, Morale patch velcro – check. The only problem with this hat is that when I wear it, women find me irresistible and won’t leave me alone.

Sharp looking, crisp form, and solid construction. Love it.

Excellent fitting hat for my larger head :) Nice to see a US made product as well.

Great lightweight tac hat with plenty of places to put morale patches. Looks good, fits good and helps fulfill Rule#1 “Always Look Cool.”

My new favorite hat. Fits generously and the color is just different enough to get a second glance.

Excellent hat, great fit and comfortable the service from ADR is top notch!

My new favorite hat. I wear it everywhere and get some many complimenta in it. More importantly it is very comfortable and because of how adjustable it is, it fits great for me as a female. I will be buying a second to have on hand

A great product from ADR. It fits comfortably for several hours but doesn’t breath as well I would like, not a deal breaker though. I was a little surprised how stiff the material is. I figured this means longevity. I would recommend this product.
