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.
