The Tail End Charlie Cap.
‘Charlie’ is there! An Angel whose got your back, twin 50’s pointing towards the sun, covering the sky, covering your ass.
The Papa Nui Cap Co. Research division present to you a new project. A long fascination with the ubiquitous A-3 Mechanics Cap has lead to this unique offering, an essential addition to your flight kit. Following the premise that gun turrets are tightly cramped spaces, the Papa has created a HBT cap that is better suited for issue to ball turret and tail gunners. Enter the Tail End Charlie cap, a superior Nippon made herringbone twill cap that captures all the history and romance of the A-3 but offers up a re-designated visor shape that provides less obstacle and more freedom of movement in a tighten environment. This cap is built solid and is not General Issue!

* The Tail End Charlie Cap is designated as a cap for tight cramped spaces, ideal for tail and turret gunners. The fit is ‘perched’ and shallow and neat for that perfect vintage look. The Visor is stubby. A cold water soak is recommended to break the fabric and allow for incremental adjustment to the fit for a moulded customised fit.
