Without doubt, the Papa Nui model we are asked about the most.

To address demand the Beachmaster is back, and this time comes in USN N3N Safety Yellow. Perfectly suited for surf or service, the Beach Master is as rugged as they come but is lightweight and pliable enough to be rolled for pocket storage.
