Tarp Baseball Cap with Rare Patches
Grangers Fabsil -600ML Spray
These Fidel Tarp Caps have been made in Brazil by friends of ours, They live in Amazonas on the edge of the rainforest and their family wear these tarp hats day in day out, they are made from recycled tarpaulins from open cargo trucks that run from Amazonas North west to the south of Brazil along thousands of miles of unmade red dust laden tracks with rain, sun & dust aging the material in a way that no factory could ever replicate. After which the material is washed and prepared ready to be made into "probably" the best original Brazilian tarp hats around.
This Fidel Cap is our take on the Dictators own, its got the distressed look from recycled Brazilian truck tarps, each one has a unique story printed in the crown of the hat giving you the run down on the Amazonas Tarp Company- make sure you get a genuine Amazonas Tarp Hat ! look for the history in the crown.
All of the Amazonas Castro caps have Solid Brass eyelets that will not rust or tarnish in the European weather along with being Re-Waterproofed so the water just beads off unlike cheaper versions you might see in the marketplace.
So all of the hats have seen more weather than most of us might see in a lifetime and do not need any looking after and are ready for their next job of keeping the elements off of you whilst looking rather cool at the same time. They are fantastic hats so grab one and Viva the revolution
Good fun but size a bit odd by Ian Drummond submitted on 28/09/2023
I have a wide brim tarp hat in xxl and it fits perfectly. So when I wanted a tarp eco cap I ordered xxl as well. Its made just as well as the wide brim hat but it just feels big.
Castro cap by John Lacey submitted on 26/09/2023
Castro cap much better quality than my previous cap Im very happy with it. A hat box size packaging to reduce creases would be good.

Really pleased by Julian Philo submitted on 09/07/2023
I already have Tarp Hat so had high expectations for the Castro Cap. I was not disappointed The sizing is perfect the same as my original Tar hat and it has been made to the very same high standard. It is exactly what I had hoped it would be. Delivery was very swift with a minimal amount of packaging - all from sustainable sources. I cannot fault the product or the company. Very well done and thank you

Different. by Mr P Holmes submitted on 24/06/2023
I have 2 of these hats. 2 different styles and both have a character I dont think even if you got two if the same style you wouldnt get two the same. Would I get any more. Yes definitely. Be different and get yourself a few. I havent finished yet.

Great hat. by Niall Murphy submitted on 05/04/2022
I thought I had a big head but the xxxl Castro hat was just a bit loose on my large Irish potato but no problem. I returned the big one and received a replacement asap which fitted perfectly. I think the size guide is generous as the tab at the back can be used to adjust the fit. Great hat and looks the part. Cant wait to try it out in extreme weather
Castro Military Cap by Graeme Stevens submitted on 05/02/2022
This is the second tarp hat Ive bought the first one is still going strong after 5 years but it cant hurt to own another one

Perfect hat exactly as described.
Castro Cap by Robert Oliver submitted on 29/11/2021
Great hat. Ive owned another like it for some years and its proved a very hardy companion both at work and up on the hills. A nice and sturdy bit of kit which beats hands down some more expensive similar items Ive owned. Highly recommended.
Ideal Autumn Winter headwear for the working gardener by Darren Turpin submitted on 13/11/2021
Ive worn the wider brim tarphat all spring and summer for a couple of years now but it always had one drawback in autumn and winter a tendency to catch the wind and fly off my head. No being keen on straps or cords around the neck dangerous in my line of work as a gardener with the potential for snagging on branches etc. I realised I needed an alternative. The Castro cap has turned out to be ideal. Squarer in shape than a baseball cap so a snugger fit on my lumpy head at least and with a deep brim to keep the low autumn sun from my eyes when weeding the border
Just what I was looking for by Colin Hayter submitted on 18/10/2021
This hat is just perfect for those days when I want to keep the sun off my head and out of my eyes. Baseball caps simply dont suit me but the Castro Look is much better. I also like the fact that it is made from recycled materials. A new favourite for those sunnier days when walking the dog or away camping
Tarp hat by Alister Macgregor submitted on 09/10/2021
I understand what its made off but it was a little bit more weathered than expected.Quite blackish in places.Other wise excellent

Great hat by Jerzy Lukowski submitted on 29/08/2021
Tragically I lost my first Tarphat. I am glad I bought a replacement. Excellent piece of kit rain or shine. Waterproof spares messing about with umbrellas. The website gives a sensible way of measuring your head to fit. I just hope I do not lose this hat.

Well made quick delivery. by Paul Thompson submitted on 21/06/2021
This is a well made hat but the fir is a bit odd ... on me anyway. It look ok but never feels very secure - it seems a bit wide at the front.Maybe it will settle in after a while. It does its job and keeps the sun off my head.
Castro Cap by Paul Barratt submitted on 20/06/2021

Castro Military Cap by Paul Britt submitted on 08/01/2021
Excellent product. Initially the cap arrived in double quick time but was a bit too small. Contacted Ana and arranged an exchange which was not a problem. New hat arrived and we are very happy with it. Overall a brilliant company to buy from will be back and would heartily recommend

Simply brilliant by Paul Dawson submitted on 27/10/2020
I really love this product. When I had had a sizing issue they were great and organised an exchange without delay. Would thoroughly recommend their style ethics value for money and excellent customer service.
Product Replacement by Gerry Woodcock submitted on 13/10/2020
Impressed at the speed and efficiency of delivering a larger size cap when original order was too small and was not suitable
Castro Military Hat by Rhiannon Davies submitted on 12/10/2020
Love the look and material used. So far keeping off the British rain. Was slightly too big despite ordering a small and my head size being in the middle of that range. Ive adjusted it by cutting and sewing at the back as I didnt think the velcro looked robust enough for the long term
Perfect Walking Friend by Alison Clewes submitted on 19/09/2020
Needed a hat to shade me from the sun and protect me from the rain. I try to buy recycled clothes and stuff that benefits charity was amazed to find Tarphats that cover both requirements. Bought the Castro cap as I liked it best. Its walking with me along the 630 miles of the South West Coast Path and has proved its worth so far. Its now like an old friend so much so I chased it along a beach for several hundred meters when I dropped it in the wind Love this hat?
Love my new Castro hat by Suzanne Froggett submitted on 16/08/2020
Quick delivery. Stylish and waterproof love it
Second Tarp hat. by Ken Thomas submitted on 11/08/2020
My Castro Military Cap is my second purchase from Tarp hats. The first was the wide brim walking hat. I was so impressed with my first Tarp hat that I decided to get a second the Castro was the next choice. My next purchase will be the floppy hat. All my old sun hats have been made redundant.
Quality product by Robert Crosbie submitted on 21/07/2020
My second hat from Tarp Hats and this one again is brilliant quality at a good price. Happy that some of the money goes back to the people in the Amazon too.
Castro Military Cap by Andrew Jago submitted on 20/07/2020
I really love my Castro cap. It is very well made individual in appearance and looks oh so cool Delivery was swift and the hat well packaged. Lots of useful background info from the company regarding the source of tarp and I was delighted with my free packet of Sunflower seedsAndy

I recently bought a Castro Military Cap via eBay which is my first Tarphat and I already LOVE it so much so that I have just ordered a wide brimmed Arazonas Tarp Hat with accessories and I cant wait for delivery. I am also wanting to buy a Messenger Bag and a wallet real soon. These products are amazing in every regard.
