Our jeep cap is the current genuine government issue version of the original. It’s from wool and to Dept of Defense specs. The current cap is much deeper than the originals which allows the cap to be pulled down lower without the need to pull down the cuff. The cuff also extends around the entire cap instead of from the sides of the brim. Originally issued in 1942 during WWII. Worn under a soldier’s steel helmet to add more comfort and warmth. It proved to be very popular with the troops.
Cpl. Radar O’Reilly from the TV show M*A*S*H and Sgt. James Kinchloe from the TV show Hogan’s Heroes can be seen wearing this cap. While there are many jeep-style caps that copy the government-issue version, many of them are cheaply constructed imported knock-offs made from acrylic instead of wool. But our jeep cap is the real thing! Made in the USA!
