  • NYPD Hat Question

    I posted a thread pertaining to this on the Duty Gear section and was referred here.

    Question for the NYPD folks: I've noticed in pictures (and sometimes passing, but never had the time to ask) that some Officers somehow manage to equip the 8-point hat onto their belt-- it doesn't appear to be hanging from anything on the belt (baton, taser, ect), but as if it's a piece of equipment meant to hold a hat or something finagled yet non-crap-looking to keep their hat readily accessible if need-be (Command Staff) without it being on.

    So, my question being: How do you do this? My initial guess is perhaps some sort of quick release keychain on the backside of the hat and belt, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Pictures attached of what I'm talking about. Thank you in advance!

    EDIT: Pull apart keychain, not quick release.

        the brim of the hat has a wire running through it on the inside to keep form, so it's easy to clip onto a key chain holder thingie

          Do you guys really have to wear the hat all of the time?
          Hate that look. But I'll rock it if I have the opportunity haha

            Yes on foot, details, crime scenes. Basically you can jump out of your car without it but once a scene is established, your hat is required.

            I absolutely can't stand that stupid hat.

              Tie is awful too -- especially with the BDUs.

                The tie I was able to live with. It was that tie clip that used to fall off and get lost endlessly but you still had to have it on if you wore the tie!

                  Winter setup for me is BDU with turtle neck, vest over it, along with Blaur Patrol jacket over it all.
