Update September 2014: Texas Tactical Hats are now available for sale at No. 4 St. James, www.fourstjames.com. Four colors in stock!
Filed Under: Exceptional gear for patriots, and the patriotic.
Overview: Series of brushed cotton, low profile hats with embroidered subdued Texas flag patches specifically designed for tactical operators, military servicemen, law enforcement, and other patriots. Just as appropriate for the real deal guys in Iraq and Afghanistan (where a lot of these hats are shipped to), and for civilians back home alike. Color choices are ideal: olive drab, khaki, or black
Appreciate: These aren't souvenirs; this is actual gear. TTH founder Adam Alexander set out to create a genuinely functional, durable, and quality hat to meet the needs of Texas tactical operators, and he succeeded. Adam is himself a former U.S. Army Ranger and a commissioned Officer in the Texas Military Forces, so he knows the needs of military, law enforcement, and security industries specialists. And for those of us who (are embarrassed to have) never served, we can at least play special-ops dress up, support a veteran-run business, and express our Texas (or American! see Special Comments) pride while looking sharp like a sharp shooter
Know: Hats are made of 100% deluxe washed cotton twill fabric, so they are sturdy but soft. Texas flag patches contain 15,000 (!) stitches. Right out of the bag, the brim is ideally shaped. No trucker mesh or other nonsense inside you have to splice out to give it shape: they're ready to go. Just adjust the velcro in the back (one size fits all) and leave it on your head til its time to hit the pillow
Special Comments: Texas Tactical Hats now offers the same khaki/olive drab/black color combinations in an American flag edition; just picture the Texas flag patch above with the Stars and Stripes, instead. Or better yet, see them for yourself on the TTH website; plenty of photos so you'll know which color to buy first. We say "first" because you'll want one in every color, we predict. The olive drab is the most popular color, but the khaki is the original and most versatile, and black is best for evening trips to the theatre (combat OR cinema). Like we said, you'll want one in every color
Cost: $24.99 each
