Tac Cap is a winter hat made from acrylic material with a light centered on the front. Its design is based on the gear that's worn by members of the United States military while they're navigating through harsh winter weather conditions. However, this cap appears to be suitable for a wide variety of activities done outdoors in the winter, such as chores like shoveling and sports like skiing. When obtaining a cap, you'll have the choice between a solid black one and one with green camouflage print.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Pull On Cap

    To start using your Tac Cap, pull it over your head like you would an ordinary winter hat made from flexible knitted or woven material. One size is meant to fit the majority of people, so unless your head is abnormally small or large, the hat should fit comfortably overtop of it.

  2. Turn On Light (Optional)

    In the daytime, you probably won't need it, but if it's nighttime or you'll be entering a dim space, you'll have the option of turning on your cap's battery-operated light. To do so, simply push the square on the front of the cap and watch it turn on. (When you need to turn the light off, you'll have to give the square another push.).

  3. Engage in Winter Activities

    You can engage in virtually any winter activity while wearing this cap unless the activity of your choice would require you to put your head underwater. While being active outdoors in the cold, you'll be able to turn the built-in light off and on as many times as you'd like, according to your needs.

  4. Pull Off and Put Away

    When you're done using your cap for a while, make sure the light on the front is off and pull the cap off of your head. Following that, it's best to store it in a safe place that isn't extremely warm or cool until you need to use it again. Just make sure you don't stack a bunch of stuff on top of it that might squish the battery-operated light!


  • For Men and Women

    Although the Tac Cap was designed with men in mind, women will be able to wear these caps, too. Children who have heads that are similar in size to those of adults will also be able to wear this cap while they're outside in the cold.

  • Comes In Two Shades

    This cap comes in a green camouflage print, but if you're not into that style, you may want to obtain it in the alternative shade, basic black. Regardless of which shade you choose, you'll be able to obtain a single cap at once or a set of two. Since the single size of this cap will fit most people, you may want to share your second one (if applicable) with a friend, family member or partner. A second one may also come in handy if the first one gets wet or dirty.

  • Durable Material

    The material used to create each Tac Cap is similar to the material used to create winter gear for United States military members, so it should stand up to any weather conditions you may encounter. It's purported to be strong enough to withstand being run over by a tire or being frozen completely solid. Due to this material's durability, each cap of this type that you have may last you for a decade or even longer.

Positive Points

  • Ideal For Car Emergencies

    If you have a car emergency, you might normally pull over to the side of the road and grab a flashlight in order to check out your engine. While wearing a Tac Cap, though, you'll be able to skip grabbing a flashlight, as you'll be able to use the super-bright light on your cap instead. As you lean over your car while wearing the cap, this light will automatically follow you, so both of your hands will be free to tinker with the car.

  • Promotes Safety

    No matter what you're doing, your Tac Cap will add to your level of safety, as its light will allow you to see potential obstacles more clearly than you would otherwise. It'll also alert other people in your environment to the fact that you're coming so they can let you pass by safely. When you're walking your dog, you'll be able to more skilfully avoid run-ins with other canines, and as you do outdoor chores in the snow, your cap will reduce the chance that you'll fall down.

  • Good For Winter Sports

    Without a cap like this one, you may have to limit your winter sporting activities to the daytime since it's quite hard to carry an extra light as you ski, snowshoe or hike through snow. Fortunately, wearing a Tac Cap will eliminate your need for an extra light of any sort, so you'll be able to do all of those activities safely and effectively at night or at dusk, too. Along the same lines, although snowmobiles already have lights, wearing one of these caps while you drive a snowmobile will enhance your level of visibility.

Negative Points

  • Light Can Burn Out

    Eventually, the battery-operated light that's built into your Tac Cap may burn out, and it may do so unexpectedly, at a time when you need it. Once that has happened, it could be difficult or impossible to get a replacement light and insert it into the same space as the old light.

  • Won't Fit Absolutely Everyone

    As mentioned, this winter cap has been designed to fit most people, but there are no guarantees that it'll fit everyone properly. If you have a head that's much larger or much smaller than the average person's, you may be one of those outliers whom the cap doesn't fit. Therefore, unless you decide to wear a different type of cap, you'll have to deal with one that's so loose that it might slide off or so tight that it might rip.

  • May Not Be Suitable For Summer

    In the summer, you could wear this cap to protect your head or to make use of its built-in light, but in most regions of the world, your head would end up feeling uncomfortably hot. Unfortunately, it appears that there's no lightweight alternative with a similar design that's more suitable for warm weather.

Critical Advice

After you get one of these caps, check the washing instructions on its label before you put it in your washing machine or dryer. Since each cap is made of acrylic, you may need to put your machine on a certain cycle or use a certain temperature of water to wash yours without shrinking or otherwise damaging it.
