WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO HAVE IN AN EMERGENCY?
Answer: A cool head.
HOW DOES ONE HAVE "A COOL HEAD"?
Literally speaking... get a stylish Wazoo ball cap and keep those rays off your noggin. By providing shade and a 100% cotton breathable barrier on the part of the body that does all the important stuff, it enables the brain to function efficiently, core temperature to be regulated, and protect against harmful exposure to ultraviolent (UV) light. Head protection in any environment cannot be understated.
Figuratively speaking... train your body and mind for worst case scenarios, practice self-sufficient skills, and always keep a positive mental attitude (P.M.A.)
Cache Cap Video Review from a #MyWazoo Fan
BUT WAIT, DOESN'T WAZOO OVER-ENGINEER EVERYTHING TO BE CRAZY PRACTICAL?
Of course! You didn't think we were just going to make a hat and put our name on the outside? This cap has 6, count 'em, SIX hidden pockets. This allows you to store secret items in your hat. Of course, we suggest emergency items and have designed it to accommodate a range of survival tools.
SPECS OF THE COOL HAT WITH POCKETS:
MATERIAL: 100% cotton (great for hot weather, can even wax it to waterproof it!)
COLOR: Charcoal Grey
SIZE: Velcro adjustment strap, one size fits most (great to fit ponytails and headlamps)
STYLE: Wazoo logo front and center, “Wazoo Survival Gear” embroidered on right side
INSIDE - 3 Open-top pouches - 1 large center and 2 side “credit card” size
HAT BILL POCKET - 1 main pocket on brim with low profile hook and loop closure
HAT BILL SLEEVES - 2 narrow slots on either side of brim
Some survival items we've stashed in our Cache Cap:
This hat is worth the investment. It's no bug-out-bag for your head, but it can hold enough to get you out of a bind.
The only negative comment I have is that, while the pocket in the brim has a nice Velcro closure, the other three pockets do not. I found that turning the hat upside down or tossing it on the seat next to you risked dislodging whatever might be in the pockets. I ended up putting small Velcro closures on mine using boot fix glue -- so far it seems to be working ok. But it would be perfect if Wazoo would put the same Velcro closures on ALL of the pockets that they put on the brim pocket.

Cache Gray Hat
Wait till i tell you everything I've put in this hat so far & plain to add more, I just dont have some of the items here on hand. I need pain meds, allergies meds i woukd like fo put a bug spray or lotion somewhere in my hat.i know i can fit something like that in this hat. So far this what i have:2 matches,4 cotton balls,8 bandaids 2 Alcohol swabs, 2 hand sanitizer pads,2 coffee straws, 2 buttons, 2 sewing needles, 2 safety pins, 20' brown thread, polishing cloth to clean my glasses,
50'/14lbs.Fishing line, 3 hooks, 3 sinkers, Glide How to clean fish could be used to start a fire, 2 zip ties, lemon/lime salt to flover anything, tin foil to make artificial bait & to cook on & use as a plate. Wayer bag & purification pills. $50.00 dollars just incase, & i have a whole lot more of space to add whatever else I need in my hat.
Hope i never have to use any of this stuff, but I'll have it on my head bc you never know. Pluse the belt, I'll be setting better then someone without there cache hat/belt system. Best thing i did was backing a great team of people on kickstarter.
Thanks to everyone @ Wazoo,

I bought it to carry stuff at the beach. Quality hat for the money. Do not hesitate to purchase. Still have to carry my.380 elsewhere. ;-)
WendyMar 1st 2018
So Freakin Cool!
This is such a cool idea and really well executed! When I'm out hiking with my dog or going to various crowded events, I don't want a bunch of stuff to carry (and possibly get stolen or lost). This hat provides a handy option for storing small things securely. My only feedback matches another one I saw here - would fit better if there was more length between the peak and the band. It's a tad too shallow. That didn't stop me from using it or buying one for my brother.
JohnNov 7th 2017
Great hat. Looks good, it is comfy and tons of functionality. I'm going to order one for everyone in the family.
WilliamOct 26th 2017
Great idea, but needs improvement. The cap is too shallow from peak to band, so it does not sit on my head securely. It is not a matter of adjusting the strap at the back. Even with the pockets completely empty, it simply doesn't come down far enough to keep it from falling off very easily. Also, the pockets are so flat that they won't hold securely anything that isn't pretty flat. Works great for Readyman survival cards, cash, fresnel lenses, etc., but not much else.
JamesOct 19th 2017
I recently used the cache cap on vacation. I used it to store extra money and matches. It gave me piece of mind knowing my large bills were in the cap instead of in my wallet when I went to the beach. If someone was going to steal my stuff they'd probably take my wallet and I'd be left with the majority of my money and be able to recover fairly easily. That's not the only thing I've used it for or the only stuff I've put in it, but I did really enjoy the piece of mind the "cash" cap gave me while traveling.
Eric SpaldingAug 10th 2017
Awesome Hat...I loved it so much this is my second one....Thanks Wazoo
Jacob Aug 7th 2017
Very simply put this is a great product!
First of all it arrived on very quickly ( I live in Europe) with a nice personal note attached.
It's such a simple yet clever and nifty cap and since I travel a-lot all over the world it's handy to keep certain valuables in one of the many pockets.
I have a fairly large head and most of the times it's hard to find a cap that fits. I did take a little gamble when I ordered these as I couldn't try it to see if it would fit. It is the best fitting cap I have ever had- Honest!
I do wish they come out with more colours in the future as I'll definitely buy another one.
I've also ordered the cache belt, there seems to be a delay with the launch of it, however I am looking forward to it as I'm sure it will be a high quality product jut like the cap is.
Great job guys!
JimJul 21st 2017
This cap fits really well and is well made. The' carrying' capacity works just be a bit careful what you put the sides as it can imprint a bit.
Wearing it lots which says something.
Curtiss Cardinal Jul 10th 2017
First off let me say the hat is the single most comfortable ball cap right out of the box I have ever put on. Feels like an old favorite at firstvwearing. That being said I do have some criticisms. I wish it was available in more than one color. I think the pocket on the bill should fill the whole under side of the bill, right up tocthe seam. This would dovtwo things, i crease capacity by at least 33%. Second in would aid in convert use if the hook and loop closure was right at the place where the bill meets the sweatband it would be invisible at a glance. Lastly I think a seventh pocket could be added to the back part of the crown. I would still recommend this hat to friends on the shear comfort factor alone.
CaseyJun 27th 2017
Hat fits nice, it's well constructed.
davidJun 15th 2017
have had the hat for one day, impressed with the comfort and sizing(big head)
don't have to worry about losing due to wind.keeps the sun out of my eyes. as
others have mentioned, would like a bigger brim pocket.still happy with my
purchase and will shop here again.

The Cache Cap was something I was very sceptical about...
The Cache Cap was something I was very sceptical about. I figured you wont get much in there as it is pretty much just a regular baseball cap, and anything you didWazoo Survival Gear put in there would feel more like a hindrance. I though, if anything, I would just use it to store some cash, but I was actually surprised by what you can do with it. It has 6 pockets in total and while the four main ones are large enough for storing some bits and pieces in them, the two side ones are might be a bit too small for most people to use. I actually put a ferro rod in one of the small visor pockets, a survival saw in one of the internal side pockets, and a small fishing kit, some foil and a needle and thread in the other side pouch. If you can count, that meant I still had space in the largest internal pouch for maybe drying out some damp tinder and the visor pocket for something-else that may take my fancy and I could even add some paracord around the inside rim. I had quite a lot of options for one small hat and it wasn’t uncomfortable to wear with this stuff inside. You can obviously feel the items you place inside, but the comfort was my only concern and I was pleasantly surprised. I wore it for a good 8 hours while I was out in the mountains and the extra bits I had added didn’t bother me at all, though I dare say some people might overfill it and find it a different experience.

Awesome cap - Quality built - Storage pockets are a great idea!!
ChrisJan 16th 2017
I was a little worried about the fit at first because I have a big head, but this hat is perfect and doesn't look like a kid's hat on me. In the future I hope to see different colors and different designs on the hat. I will probably buy another just because.
galoJan 15th 2017

DonNov 26th 2016
Hat is well made and very comfortable.Pockets are a good idea. Bought one for a friend. My only concern is that if I put small items in the top part of the hat they may fall out when the cap is removed. Maybe a small closer to the pockets , like velcro , may be a possibility

The hat is very good quality with nice fabric and a great, comfortable fit.

I really like the hat and all of the compartments. I would have liked Velcro used to secure the items in the pockets, also other colors. With that said it is a great hat.

A great hat but a terrible fit.
The hat is excellent in all respects except one. It has WAY too much vertical room inside and does not fit me at all. I'm a normal size guy (though bald) and I feel like a child in it, it's that big. If you ever fix the issue I will reorder, as it is I have to return it soon.
MikeOct 12th 2016
je recommande cette casquette, car elle est tres bien conçue et en plus elle est sponsorisée avec le logo de Wazoo Survival Gear.

Very nice hat.
Good old fashion ball cap style. Compartments inside don't bulge or feel uncomfortable. Nice velcro stash under the bill. I recommend this hat, less components in your pocket.

Going to be handy on holiday and when I go hunting :-)
CaseyAug 11th 2016
Very nice adventure/everyday hat.
Comfortable adjustable for cap. Plenty of space for flat items to keep under your hat. I even keep my rings under the bill when traveling. Maybe a black cap in the future?

Streamline your EDC.
Just what I was looking for since I don't like carrying a purse along with a backpack and often a laptop bag. It holds the right amount. Now I'm waiting to see how much abuse it can handle.

hided a R.A.T.S. Tourniquet inside
I love my new hat. The cushion head band feel great, best hat i've had. You can fold a R.A.T.S. Tourniquet inside, by fold in half and lay it on the side edge of the band. It helps to use paperclips, bobby pins and hair pins or anything to hold in place[use for lockpicks and shims ]. My only complaint would be more pockets and the hat bill pocket should cover the whole hat bill. I'd pay a bit more for that.

"How'd ya get this far without a hat?" ~ Seamus McFly
Marty's ancestor had a point all the way back in 1885. You always need a hat, especially if (like me, unfortunately) you don't have as much hair as you used to. A good hat can make a world of difference. Even more so when it can store stuff. Just expect it to get a bit sweaty in the summer.
AnonymousJun 3rd 2016
If you are going to add the Wazoo Logo to a hat that has secret pockets, remove it. The hat will look plain and nobody would suspect it was a Cache Cap and look through the pockets since this product is well-recognized.

One of the comfiest out of the box hats that I have ever owned...all with bonus pockets. You can never have enough pockets, if your a "stuff" guy!

Good to go hat
Still a little cold up here in Ohio but I plan on wearing this cap as soon as the weather breaks. I have been experimenting with what can go into what pockets so it is a work in progress, overall a great hat. Great delivery time and great customer service by the way thank you Roxann for the note.

Great Grey Man Gear
Very well made and good looking cap. Pockets remind me of the old military boonie hats with hidden map pocket. You can carry a lot more then you may think but you don't want to weigh it down to much. The only thing I like to see is a way to secure the tops of the inner pockets so content doesn't slip out by the cap flipping over on a car seat or chair.

Hope you have a srong neck for this one.
Recieved my 6 pocket, Wazoo cap today, and as usual another high quality product. Besides stylish, this hat has all kinds of possibilities. I stored a fishing kit, knife, fat packs and a striker. I tried a case if beer but that will have to be worked on allitle more. You can store and hide anything in the six pockets. Your id, little black book or even pictures, but i wont go into that one. Lol This is just another great product from the Wazoo crew. I wonder whats next. Best if all it is very affordable and stylish. Keep up the good work, and bring more stuff out. I think all the Wazooer's need one of these.

Great concept, wish some of the smaller pockets were larger in the brim to accommodate the pre loaded tubes avavible from the company. Would have liked to have be able to put an emergency blanket in the cap pocket.
