A handsome update to one of the Papa’s most iconic models, the Papa Nui Beachmaster Hat is now available in a beautiful Tiger camo. Inspired by the very best examples of the GI issue Daisy Mae, it is named after the officer in charge of disembarkation during amphibious warfare.
This model joins forces with our good friends, the East Asia Supply Company. Specialists in the Vietnam war, the East Asia Supply Company produces some of the most authentic camouflage patterns of the era. Tiger is the name of a group of camouflage patterns developed for close-range use in dense jungle during jungle warfare by the South Vietnamese Armed Forces and adopted in late 1962 to early 1963 by US Special Forces during the Vietnam War
This Beachmaster release comes complete with a custom Papa Nui tape woven in the style produced by Montagnard tribes and worn by GI’s as either a headband or a hatband. You have the option to sew it on or hold down your in-country locks.
