A balaclava is pretty much one-size-fits-all, unless you have a head like a basketball. How big is your head?

I have ZERO commercial interest in the company but, I've gotta give a shout out to Viper Headwear. I bought a "Snake Eater" cap based on a post in another thread. It is a GREAT cap, very high quality.

Viper Headwear was started by a US Army SF vet. All VIPER HEADWEAR products are cut, sewn, and manufactured in the USA.

The "Snake Eater” is a fitted cap for tactical operators constructed from genuine Multicam 50/50 NYCO. It is a pretty lightweight fabric.They can be ordered with or without the 2in. x 3.5in. Velcro on the front of the cap, 1.5in. x 1.5in. Velcro on top, and 1in. x 4in. or 1in. x 6in. Velcro on the back for the 4" or 6" nametapes. This cap does not include the button on top for added comfort when wearing communications headsets and it features an unstructured, lower crown.


The Quiet Professional is a structured, medium crown cap, constructed from Multicam 50/50 NYCO. It features a 2in.x 3in. Velcro on the front for rank insignia, flags, team/unit patches, or your favorite morale patch and 1in.x 4in. Velcro on the back for nametapes.


If you need a Multicam cap, I highly recommend Viper Headwear.

Being high speed sounds like it's not as much fun as my Walter Mitty fantasies make it out to be.

I actually have a 99 cent LA Police Gear USA flag hat with a rail mounted on it. X200 makes a pretty good head lamp.

My weapons are strategic, I take strategic weapons classes, therefore I require a strategic hat.
