Swordfish in Yellow Waxed Canvas

$68.00

Quaker Marine Supply’s founder and Coast Guard veteran, Joe Kadison, designed this hat with function in mind based on his own experiences on the water. Like many purpose-built items, it developed a singular personality along the way. To start, the bill is long. At 3 3/4” long, the Swordfish’s brim is 25% longer than your standard ball cap. Why? Because it actually offers sun protection when this long.

While most hats today are a standard 6-panel, this hat is constructed with 4 lateral panels to deliver a low profile that reduces windage. Like the original, it features four eyelets on each side panel that provide ventilation. It is made in sturdy waxed canvas to perform and last and has a dark green underbrim to absorb reflected light.

Sometimes, when you have the courage to choose functionality over fashion, you wind up back at fashion’s doorstep. We hope you enjoy this hat as much as we do.

Long Live The Longbill

One of Quaker Marine’s classics, this hat was offered for more than 60 years before the business closed down during the Great Recession. It was the company’s most popular cap, generating a dedicated following over the six decades since. Pictured here are two legendary fans of the longbill: David Hockney and David Lynch

It is now being manufactured once again – by hand – in the original factory in the USA.
