Make sure you order the correct size! Your service cap is likely not the same size as your beret! The service caps have a constant and more rigid shape than a beret, not to mention that berets tend to stretch a little over time. Because of the extra handling and the very high shipping fees for caps, we must charge a $5 fee to exchange any ASU Service Cap. Learn how to measure your correct hat size.
IMPORTANT DA PAM 670-1 WARNING: The DA PAM 670-1 (para 13-12d) states that the service cap will be the same material as the coat.
