The female service cap is also much more expensive than the male cap
And both are equally useless and cumbersome.
So many cadets think that this cap is a must-have and I can't figure out why except it is another way to set them apart from others. I have been in the Air Force for nearly 30 years and I haven't owned a service cap in at least 15 years. The flight cap is the way to go. It is cheap, easy to care for and easy to stow when indoors.
