The L-4 is born of the tropics and conceived on the Atoll. It’s close crowned and generously visored and features a triumvirate of grommets arranged to keep your head while others are losing theirs.
It’s a late 40’s style that uses the Papa’s blueprint of original aviation inspired caps and yet its comfortable whilst casting for Steelhead in swirling whitewater or rambling across the Salt Flats. It’s rugged and handsome and nods towards civilian pursuits with its feather weight Japanese Chambray construction and anti glare under visor. Available this summer in washed Indigo with navy flip up and Natural seeded with taupe flip up.
Medium 57-58 and large 59-60.
NOTES ON WASHING.
At Papa Nui we do more tests than Bikini Atoll and whilst we don’t measure Isotopes and Gama Rays we do lots to ensure you get the best from your cap.
To custom size your cap,we follow these methods;
To stretch , cold water soak then place over knee to vigorously pull and rotate until desired sizing is achieved, normally 1-1.5cm.
To shrink, observe the Papa’s pot cap soup method. Boil cap for 10 minutes, towel dry and check size, if extra shrinkage is desired place in hot clothes dryer. Maximum shrinkage is usually 1- 1.5cm.
These two tips will allow you to achieve extra sizing options outside of the medium and large size offering.
