OC Tactical Hearing Protection Cover

Post  Gear Whores Anonymous on Fri Sep 28, 2012 3:56 pm

If you have a set of Peltor Comtacs or similar then you know that the original headwrap can be insufficient. Not only that but can get quite uncomfortable after long periods of wear. I've seen a few of these covers pop up on the market but I chose to go with OC Tactical and give them a shot. According to their site they were one of the originators of the padded cover.

Notable features:
-Available in either 330D or 500D cordura
-Foam backed Dri-Lex for comfort and moisture wicking
-Double folded cordura edge binding
-5" velcro strip on top for a name tape
-Various sizes available, Peltor Comtacs/Tac 6, Sordin Supreme Pro-X, Sordin Supreme Pro, Howard Leight Impact Sport
-Available in almost any color imaginable
-MSRP $20

This shot shows the mesh like material, this combined with extra padding will make your headset extremely comfortable to wear. Not to mention it'll help with the moisture and all that head sweat

Installation is easy. Wrap the headband and secure the cover with the velcro

If you're an owner of a headset and want something more comfortable you will NOT be disappointed with one of these upgraded covers. Best part is they are handmade in the USA and are only $20. Along with the gel cups something like this is essential especially if you've invested in a nice pair of electronic hearing protection headset.

Pros:
-Craftsmanship, Made in USA
-MSRP $20
-Available in every color imaginable
-Comfortable to wear
-Moisture wicking

Cons:
-Availability

Saw a review on ITS. I agree the con is the availability, just have to wait, kinda like a Form 4 on fun stuff I guess.
