This cap is the Papa’s version of the WWII A-3 mechanic's cap. The original A-3 is a very shallow cap that perches high on the head and the brim is a narrow shape. The Atoll Defender builds on the popularity of this 6 panel shape but adds the feeling that you can actually pull it down to get some serious sun protection.  A deeper crown and the Papa’s legendary brim makes this cap the new classic. Fabrication is 9oz Herringbone twill in olive drab with interior survival yellow twill tape trim. 

On the side of the cap instead of the AAF "wings & stars" stamp they've added the Papa Sub-Killer flotilla stamp designed by Florian Bertmer.
