    Anyone know where I can find a lightweight ACU patrol cap? What I mean by lightweight i mean "one that matches the BDU (with out holes)?"

    I remember when ACUs first came out, there was a company that was selling the BDU hot weather cap in ACU pattern, but I don't think they do it anymore.

    And yes I know it's not authorized. I can't take the 2 inch thick bill and 20 layers of material.

    our company 1SG was being a dick about not letting anyone do it, but then I think our BN CSM told him that it was the new standard. I think its pretty sweet that we for the most part did away with the useless berets, at least on post. Id like to see this catch on across the army

    :werd: I hate the beret, it sucks to put on when you have something in your hands, and it is amazing how terrible some people manage to look in them.

    Started with the 3rd ID, when the division deployed the CG ordered all rear units to go to PC's as a symbol of the division being deployed.

    It seems a little more popular now to do even when not at the motor pool.
