The txapeldun is the quintessential Basque beret, the most perfect embodiment of a tradition that goes back centuries, a symbol for champions (in the Basque Country the txapeldun is used as a trophy in competitions of sports and the brain), the ultimate protection from sun, rain and snow for the Basque shepherds in the Pyrenees mountains, a hat widely adopted by artists with a reminiscence of the Renaissance and generally, a fantastic beret to wear.

South Pacific Berets stocks two sizes of txapeldunak, the 15 pulgada and the very-very large diameter in 16 pulgada (which equals 34.9cm and 37.2cm in the metric system and 13.7" and 14.6" in US inches, respectively), in Black and Navy.
South Pacific Berets also has an exclusive line of custom-made colours: Azul-Blue, Saviem-blue (cobalt), Crudo (off-white), Colorado (Spanish red), Granate (Bordeaux) and Khaki.

It takes a bit of courage to wear a txapeldun, but once you do - you won't want anything smaller. Most customers buying our txapeldunak find it an excellent hat for hiking and tramping, offering the best possible protection from any weather and still easy to roll up and fit in a daypack or pocket.

$73.50 - $77.50

Both Txapeldunak in BLACK have sold out presently; however, a black model is available under our Aotearoa label (click here).
