How to fit a forage cap

Postby Highland2012 » Thu Mar 12, 2015 10:20 pm

Hello,

Im a new LEO recruit and i was issued my kit today.

I was issued a forage cap with the shiny brim but I have troubles getting it properly on my head without sinching it on to my huge dome. How are these supposed to fit? Should i head back to the depo and trade it in for a bigger size? The reason i got stuck with this one is it was the last one of the biggest size possible without ordering new ones. I know your not supposed to touch the brim and i'm not really able to fit the hat on my head without doing so. After just a few minutes of wear there was also a huge red line across my forehead too. :rage: :cuss:

Go see your quartermaster they will ensure you have a properly fitting cap.

Or see if they have a hat stretcher:

I know it looks old-school but I remember seeing one that looked just like this years ago at the OPP Quartermaster.

Mine fits nicely in the overhead compartment, above my desk in the office. It's still there, and hasn't moved once.

Mine was small,

It got blown off my head on the hwy during a stop. All the cars aiming for it helped "Stretch" out lol
