I sent Military Mega Store an email about my complaint with their product. I did use the term POS to decsribe the cap and offered the suggestion that they change their photos and descriptions to 100% Acrylic instead of wool so consumers would know what they were getting. Below is the reply I received. I will give them kudos for the quick reply, about 5 minutes after I sent my email.
My shipping guy screwed up but I don't like your message and/or approach so you can initiate a return through the amazon system. I probably made less than a dollar on you and don't have the time or patience for customers like you

> I ordered, and expected, a 100% Wool cap and you sent me a low rent acrylic one. Given that, according to reviews, this is your common practice, why not change your photos and descriptions to reflect what you really send? Oh wait, then we wouldn't buy your POS.
afraid the cap I purchased was not the real thing!
These caps are very high quality, not obnoxiously thick, and plenty warm enough to keep even a bald head comfortably warm in some seriously bad weather, including rain. Wool beats the pants off of just about anything else in terms of warmth, durability, and very importantly, wet insulation.
Because of certain physical properties of wool fibers, they will retain up to 95% of its insulating properties even when soaking wet. Cotton, polyester, and even the new wonder-fleeces are not nearly as good. They might be thinner, sure, but thin isn't everything. Not to mention the fact that wool doesn't melt to your hair when you sit a little too close to the campfire...
I buy another one of these just about every few years. Not because they're worn out, quite on the contrary - I seem to lose them.
Some reviewers have complained that these are too small. I'm not about to say that they must have enormous heads, because I've seen these things fit on some pretty enormous heads. The trick to fitting these is to bend your knee until your heel touches your thigh, then yank the watchcap down over your knee all the way. This will stretch the cap out significantly. Then, put it on your head and roll it how you want, and let it gradually shrink back down. You'll need to do this when they're brand new, and then once after every trip through the washing machine.
In the past I have been using a "beanie" that, unknown to me at the time, was made of acrylic.
I received this "beanie" and have used it. Instead of acrylic, it is all wool and tighter weave construction. Because of this it is much warmer in cold temps, and if washed according to instructions is more comfortable and will last a lot longer.
Again, excellent product, good price
