One of the more sturdy & well constructed hats I own. The AU-X camo is very unique and distinctive. The grey and purple hues give the hat an almost dirty or a "has been handled with dirty hands" look. Which from a distance or even close-up, is very effective at disrupting your silhouette. I'd love to see this great hat in Multi-cam black and flecktarn or even the polish woodland. Night time desert storm camo is cool. But ineffective for night operations. Love this hat.
