While historical figures can be accurate, for instance, Captain Miller of the 2nd Ranger Battalion of World War II, "modern" soldiers never are because they are considered modern now but in a few years' time their equipment would have become outdated because technology is so fast moving. 21st Century touted this figure as their Ultimate "Modern" Soldier back then when he's wearing OD fatigues!! Hot Toys' current "modern" ranger is wearing ACU with Foliage Green Fleece jacket. So much has changed in so short a time.
IMHO the molded cap works well when attempts to make them cloth can lead to disastrous results such as being oversized or having a longer peak which looks more like a platypus' duckbill
Back in those days when NVG was first introduced, there were no NVG mounts - you used it like a pair of binoculars - view when required
