Regular price 899 kr Sale

This cap is very similiar in design to the more commonly seen Army Air Force Type A-3 mechanics cap but the N-3 cap was the counterpart for the U.S. Navy. Standardised in 1943, it was issued to all ground crew as part of their 4-part fatigue uniform.

Constructed of 6 triangular crown panels in a 'ball-cap' style design, and made from a strong 8 ounce cotton HBT fabric with stiff fibre board peak covered in the same HBT fabric. Forest green cotton twill to the underside that helps to reduce glare.
