    I am unfamiliar with this hat, but there are two common reasons:

    1. "High Visibility" for night use. Police, civilian and military, often use covers or dedicated white hats.

    2. Rain protection. Wet wool caps aren't fun Smile

    My guess is this is #1, but identifying the badges on the front will likely tell you for sure.

    Thanks Steve,i would go for option 1 as the cover wouldnt afford much rain protection.

    Remember who we are talking about here Smile I have a Russian SMK rain poncho that is about as water resistant as an already wet piece of toilet paper!

    But seriously, I do agree it looks more like a traffic cop kinda thing. The concept is saving money, I think. Why issue two hats when you can issue one hat and a bit of cloth?
