Known as the 'utility cover' or 'utility cap' this design was first introduced in World War 2. It came to be associated with the marine raiders through their widespread use of it in combat. The Navy has also fully adopted the 8 pointed cover design with its sharp appearance. They also wear it very high on the head and peaked far forward, although you can wear it like a standard cap as well.
The cap has a stiff but mold-able peak complete with 8 pointed cover. Complete in the odd 'blueberry camo' these definitely have a unique appearance. The cap also has eyelets to allow your head to breathe, handy when sweating it out moving heavy cargo about. A literal head turning piece of headwear, wear one this Summer or add it to your US Navy collection!
