It was initially issued to mechanics and engineers during WWII. During World War II, when used as a working cap for land mechanics, the flat and wide brim was a feature of the cap, which effectively shielded the sun. The simple yet functional design of the A-3 Cap grew in popularity, which led to it being used by other parts of the US Military.
Love this hat. Great quality. I ordered 7.5 but wear a 7.25. Washed it in cold water and air dry and it fits perfectly.
Great cap! At first I found the size to be somewhat generous, but after a machine wash it fits true to size and looks so much cooler!
Good hat !!! I recommend !!!
Nice Cap, great Qualität, very authentic.

Nicely made and the fit is true to size. (I'm normally a 60/61 and ordered the 7 3/4 and the fit is spot on.) Very happy.
For the price it's far better than I expected. I have an original from wwii in olive drab, this is an excellent copy. I believe the army air force printed on the side may be incorrect. should be army air corps. airforce came about in 1947. otherwise, nice cloth, stitching and look are very close to the original.
Great cap, fantastic fit, speedy delivery, five star service.!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Solid hat, can’t wait to put some miles on it.
Just had to get it in indigo, great cap, well made nice it .
Yet another great product from Bronson, the quality and fit are on point. I will definitely be ordering the denim version to this. Size 7 3/4 nice deep full cut .
Received mine in the mail today, fits perfectly and is almost identical to the real ones I've seen!
Cool reminds me of my old army hat,but better.
Looks good. Feels a bit flimsy. Didn't look right on my head.
Great customer service and fast shipping.
The hat is exactly what I was looking for. 7 1/2 fits great for my considerably large head. Great repro!
Cool cap slightly shallow in the head but then I have a big head. Love the cap.
