Notch Hat – A Solution To A Problem No One Ever Had

Likely not wanted by operators who operate in operations, despite the picture suggesting it:


If you haven’t gathered by the pictures, the entire “selling feature” of this hat are the two notches cut out of the pre-curved visor.  I’m not sure why you can’t just pull your hat up 1/4″ like a normal human being when you’re wearing sunglasses, rather than wear a hat with bite marks taken out of it… but there you go…. BECAUSE AMERICA!

I’m sure they have that visor patented, otherwise you just know companies like NewEra would be all over this idea (hahah uhhhh no).

Notch-HatMrColionNoir operates hard and he likes his hats down really low… maybe he would like these?  I doubt it, because he’s a stylish mofo.

You can check out the entire lineup over at the Notch Hat website, and by all means buy the shit out of everything if you think it’s a good idea.

Thoughts?  Anyone else curious what the inevitable Notch underwear will look like?

        It’s hard to beat the stupidity of the rifle rail pistol holster.

        dont forget the cock rings for your ar-15 barrel.

    2. Get over it prick… A lot of people are glad they came out with this hat

  2. I would rock it if it was only like 10 bucks, I’m the kind of douche that likes to have my hats bill on the optic and it is kind of uncomfortable when I’m using my 3 dollar bulk construction eye pro.

    1. well if you mount a rail on top of the optic and mount a ball cap on top of that, you will be set.
      Wait! no one copy my idea, its neva been dun befo!

  3. I guess I better buy one now before I DIE! Fuck all this tactical sales shit. Hey, buy our product cause if u don’t, ull get killed.

      Oh you’ll still die, UNLESS… you get tactical shark jump Costa Lupus arm tape.

        I think you need to wear the arm tape to get the proper fit adjusting the strap on the ninja turtle pack anyway. It helps you get the right dynamic pull angle…

    This would go great with my scottvest travel underwear with passport pockets

    If you have sunglasses, why would you need a visor?

    1. For the same reason people wear sunglasses indoors

      1. SittingDown Avatar

        Guess it’s only for the Tier 0 opz

    2. ENDO-Mike Avatar

      I wear a hat + sunglasses all the time just so I don’t burn my forehead in the sun.

      1. SittingDown Avatar

        You’re excused. But it does have a Dale Earnhardt sort of look to it. Though wearing both could protect you from contracting “Costa-Lupus” virus. The only cure for which is to burn seventy rolls of tactical arm tape and place the ashes into a coffin shaped like Chris Costa’s silhouette ;) :D

      How dare you question my hattery?!

      Sunglass + Visor is the way to go, I wear normal glasses most days and they definitely dont do the same job ha

    4. retarded question.
      hat protects from direct sunlight, sunglasses cover the eyes from the surrounding light.
      One does not reduce the need for the other.

  6. i heard you like rails, so we put a rail on your rail, so you can operate without going off the rails.

    1. SittingDown Avatar

      To rail or not to rail, that is the question!

  7. This hat needs rails!

  8. It looks better than those idiotic flat-billed fitted hats. Beyond stupid, especially worn at an angle. I wanna pop them off kid’s heads when I see it.

    I have considered notching a hat or two, I have a small head, so a standard hat bill is all-encompassing.

    1. Agreed on the flat billed hats. Some of us are any or all of: White, older than 14 years of age, employed and sober.

    I bought one to try out, so I guess I’m fashionally challenged in ENDO’s eyes, lol! But I wanted a Krytek hat. The fit and quality of the hat reminds me of UA heat gear stuff. Nice and comfortable. The notch didn’t work well for me when wearing Oakley Gascans, haven’t tried it on eye pros yet. It’s not deep and not that noticeable like I thought it would be. I’ll probably wear it to the range once I remove that damn button top!

      1. Taylor TX Avatar

        Kind of odd on a hat that is pretty much made for shooters, there is a button on the top of it.

    2. ENDO-Mike Avatar

      Yea definitely not much Kryptek stuff out there at the moment to choose from. To each their own! I’m really critical / picky when it comes to clothing haha

  11. Meh, interesting… But certainly not worth what they’re asking.

    You cut a notch in a hat, big whoop.

  12. Endo and others,
    Thanks for the feedback on our product. Our hats aren’t for everyone (but then again, no hat is) but they do solve a problem that is common for many people. The response to our product has been overwhelmingly good, especially in the hunting/outdoor and tactical community. We’ll also be introducing a style very soon without the button on top as we have been flooded with requests for those from consumers and retailers alike. We’re veteran owned and operated and we would only ask that you suspend judgement until you have tried it for yourself.

    Endo, we didn’t notice until it was brought to our attention that you altered our image…not cool.

    1. Don’t get too offended about the image, you got FREE exposure.

    2. Don’t you mean “notch ool”?

      Com’on, gotta work your product name in there somewhere, right?

    3. OpsMcTops Avatar

      Your comment was professional and I liked how you handled it up until: “Endo, we didn’t notice until it was brought to our attention that you altered our image…not cool.” Do you even internet? ROFLOLOLcopter I wish I had links to the past posts where co’s he posted about complained like that. What happened next got funny as fvck, that’s all I remember. Like the person below said you got got free advertising which probably costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars on this blog. Thank him and fade back into obscurity.

    4. “Endo, we didn’t notice until it was brought to our attention that you altered our image…not cool.”

      Maybe you should take your indignance….*puts on sunglasses* down a notch


      1. I have nothing. You win, sir

    5. Oooh, you’re taking requests?!? How ’bout a hat without a stoooopid notch in the bill? You could call the new product line “Not Stoooopid Hats”.

      1. While I’m at it, I’ve got an idea for new tactical pants with a cut-out so your balls don’t chafe. They’ll be marketed under the tradename “Crotch-notch”.

        1. I may be a month late in commenting but this is some funny stuff

      I am a police officer, and I love the notch hat. It’s great on the range and just to wear out. It is made of quality material. I don’t understand all the hatting, especially from those who haven’t tried it. Several of my brothers at the pd want one after I wore mine when we had to qualify on the range. I plan to buy another one myself. Notch keep up the good work.

  13. NOTCH hook me up. I’ll test out your operator as fuck gear.

    1. OpsMcTops Avatar

      liquid from your extreme glock torture troll tests could run down through that notch into your eyes and blind you temporarily, watch out for that!

  14. Crunkleross Avatar

    I hope they make a version with a XXXL notch to fit around the Elvis glasses I always operate in.

  15. I think this is kind of frivolous, but I don’t operate, so while it’s not a problem for me, I can see the utility of this for the almost no one who needs this.

    Seriously, I’m roflcoptering at the butthurt from the photo. It’s the internet. He could Photoshop wangs everywhere and be fine. Deal with it. You put a funny product out on the market, and it’s getting clowned. Just be glad you don’t bear a resemblance to a rather well known post-op tranny. I do admit the butthurt from that would be epic, though.

  16. MarcRandall Avatar

    Ha so much butthurt over the shopped pic. They must be good at telling from the pixels and seeing a lot of shops in their time. Product request: A notch in the back so I can grow a pony tail and wear a hat comfortably when I tactically operate

    1. SittingDown Avatar

      Stick with the drink hat with straws. Gives nourishment for half the price. For those days you just DGAF, wear the pinwheel hat and be really tacticool.

  17. SouthPawByNW Avatar

    How about a notch with an integrated bottle opener? That’d be pretty sweet. Operate and then pop open a beer.

  18. R Wong Avatar

    I’m actually really interested in this hat for competition shooting. I wear a POV headcam on my head and when i tilt the hat back enough to clear my shooting glasses the cam is high of center. I’m hoping this hat will sit lower on my head with my shooting glasses and I’ll also be able to run my headcam at a better angle. Yes I’ve played with different cam mounting solutions, different cams, and different glasses. Here is a link to a video of a shooting match with the cam mounted to my hat.

  19. For all of the nay sayers, there are actually a ton of LEO and USBP agents in the Yuma Arizona area that love and wear these hats on a daily basis, for work or otherwise.

    I have had this problem for years! So I was quite excited to see this hat. Maybe its a girl thing because women’s sunglasses tend to be bigger framed than men’s? Thank you NOTCH!!!!!!

    Admit it, you’re pissed you didn’t come up with this before they did asshole.
    I wear glasses and this is a great idea.

    Cheguei aqui apenas porque a ideia do “notch cap” me é muito útil e necessária. Todos os dias me aborreço em precisar deste produto e não ter onde comprá-lo próximo a mim. A combinação é perfeita. Parabéns aos criadores! Nem Jesus Cristo é unanimidade e mais da metade da população mundial não o aprecia; quanto mais um produto para isso exclusivo daqueles que necessitam.
