A.G. Watch Cap - HW Terra/Stone Gray
Our watch caps are directly inspired from this style of cold weather headwear issued to USN Sailors, Seabees, Merchant Marines and other service members during WWII, and in the decades to follow. The PDW A.G. Watch Cap is made in a premium grade, soft, machine wash & dry, 100% merino sourced from a leading EU based supplier. Unlike other knit beanies being made in the USA today, which are simply tubes sewn closed at one end. Ours are a true fully shaped and knitted process produced on state of the art, computer controlled knitting machines based in California.
While the original USN issue stands on its own we created our updated and upgraded interpretation, that is superior comfort, easy care, and possess that timeless, and classic appearance. The A.G. Watch Cap-HW is the high standard in American made col weather beanies and will be a goto staple in anyone's wardrobe during cold/frigid conditions.

Warmer and better quality than anything I had in the Marines, great piece of gear.U
I have the normal weight watch cap and I needed something beefier for colder weather or prolonged periods outside. The Heavy Weight Watch Cap fit the bill perfectly. The wool is soft and comfortable, not itchy at all and very cosy while wearing. Thanks again PDW for another piece of amazing kit.
Thank you! Semper Fi!A
I’m bald and my ears have poor circulation, so a good hat is a must for me. The problem I usually encounter is a poor fit that doesn’t cover my ears properly and the tendency to ride up over time and further expose my ears. The A.G. Watch Cap is fantastic. It fits right and doesn’t ride up. The cuff is broad enough to cover my ears comfortably and completely. The fabric is sublime; soft and warm. I strongly recommend. It’s a great hat!P
I will use this for work in the Canadian Arctic.
This is a thick and soft merino wool toque that is quite large. It will be perfect for very cold situations where you may be a bit more active or moderate cold situations when you aren't moving.
My only complaint is that it specified it as a heavy weight and I was expecting something closer to the Canadian Military double layer toques. This one is a single thick layer of wool, and while quite warm and usable in a broader temperature range, is not as thick as the standard used for cold Arctic duty.J
I really like the thickness, I have 2 of the other caps and they are just as nice, but this cap is awesome!
