Does anyone know when these caps were introduced on the Market, this one I have been informed is dated 1988.
Were these originally made from surplus Lizard pattern cloth, this one is made of Poly/Cotton HBT??

I have a few of these. Have had them a long time and cannot remember where they came from.

The " commercial " caps must have been produced by many different makers.
Have seen Asian copies, beside the European copies. They are all well made, simple , and fairly comfortable .
I could have sworn I had some commercial Bigeard caps somewhere, but have not found them, if they even existed. Had not bothered to look too closely at the one I posted , and assumed it was commercial .
Not until recently did I find that it is legit. The hood is a recent acquisition and matches the Israeli TAP reissue perfectly .
All Lizard is cool....
