USA – -(Ammoland.com)- When it comes to personal protection, why not be proactive?

The ultimate concealed self-defense tool from FAB Defense, the Gotcha Hat can go with you where other weapons are prohibited.

The less-lethal self-defense tool is hidden in plain sight adding confidence to any individual wearing the hat under any set of circumstances.

The tool is made of MIL-SPEC reinforced polymer composite, so it won’t trigger metal detectors and is mounted into the brim of a stylish hat so your attacker will never see it coming.

Martial arts experts Dov Granchrow and Yaron Hanover designed the Gotcha hat so that individuals, even when wearing little clothing (such as shorts or swimsuits), would never be caught empty-handed. The Gotcha can be drawn easily from the holding mount within the brim of the hat in a non-threatening motion, which will catch your attacker off guard. Not only will users confidently defend themselves, they’ll have the last word: Gotcha. The personal-defense tool enables quick pressure point standoff as well as restraining and disarming techniques.

The comfortable baseball-style hat is available in four colors, black, coyote tan, dark earth (brown) and OD green. The front of the hat can be personalized with interchangeable Velcro patches.

You don’t think that TSA (even TSA) will catch this, think again. When they do I do not want to be around the wearer when the cops haul him/her off. They have even busted people for sharpening one edge of their credit card. Plus what pressure point, where is that pressure point. Mr. Mugger wait while I pull out my handy dandy pressure point diagram so I will know where to use this silly thing. I first thought it was for opening beer bottles or cans..

What are the “choices” of patches? Do I announce my aggressive ability with an advertisement for body armor?


The article ane their website talk about the hidden carry, easy draw and non-detectable benefits but no where do they talk about what you are supposed to do with this funky looking tool or how you use it. They need to hire better marketing people.

It’s pretty straight forward, Steve: grip it like brass knuckles which are a long-proven combat tool. I like the idea and it’s not a bad looking cap. As for what you should put on the velcro? A Pro2A patch of course!


OddJob made a similar, but more dangerous, hat out of his Bowler. Unfortunately it won’t get past today’s metal detectors. LOL


Sorry just dont see the need. this does nothing defensively that a set a car keys thru the fist couldn’t, and keys are legal EVERYWHERE. Add the fact i have to wear their hat instead of my own choice in cap.. Good idea, poor approach and design.
