The Papa Nui Superfort Cap was worn by the B-29 long range bomber crews high in the Stratosphere who took the fight right to the front door of the enemy. In peace time the B-29 was converted to carry Chuck Yeager’s X-1 Rocket Plane but their crews loved the caps so much they kept on wearing them.
As part of the Atoll Rocket Riders collection, the Superfort Cap takes the ubiquitous crew favourite A-3 cap and rebuilds it like no one has ever attempted before. It pioneers new ground like our intrepid rocket men.

To find out more about how to measure your head to get the sizing of your cap perfect, see this detailed post about Papa Nui sizing. Need more information on how to fine tune the sizing of your Papa Nui cap? Our sizing page also contains information about how to stretch or shrink your cap.
Before attempting to stretch or shrink your cap, please see the Care section to see if this is possible with your model.
Where necessary, we recommend machine washing your Superfort Cap on a cold cycle and line drying.
If you’re happy with the sizing of your Superfort Cap, avoid tumble drying as this may result in slight shrinkage.
