~ In-game description

Suffering the same failings as all knit caps (inability to wick moisture, poor protection), the Radar Cap is useful only for prestige and as beginning gear. Commonly known as the 'Jeep Cap' used by the United States Military in night operations.



The name "Radar Cap" is likely a nod to the character "Radar" (named so for his excellent hearing) from the hit 1970s TV show, M*A*S*H, in which he wears this style of knit cap in brown.
