Used German army red berets. Pre-worn, but can be shaped again for a custom fit.

Military berets were first introduced to the world by the French army, as early as 1880. Since then many militaries have adopted the beret as their official head wear, including the German Bunderwehr. A beret makes you look professional, cunning, intelligent and whatnot. These are decently sized, unlike the huge flaps you sometimes see worn by the French.

A red beret is issued to members of support units such as artillery, intelligence, signals etc.

The material is wool with a leather trim, and a sturdy support backing for the cap badge. The Germans attach the cap badge by four prongs, holes for these are visible on the front.

Used German surplus

These are red and used, but in serviceable condition. Many berets have an about 10 cm tall black A-stamp on the top. This denotes the stuff is pulled out of military use and sold to civilians. Thank you Bundeswehr for making it so clear!

Ostin kaksi, toinen särmääntyi helposti, toinen ei vieläkään. Haisee homeiselle varastolle, haju tarttuu päähän. Kovikekohdassa 4 reikää, joihin doitsmaanien omat kokardit uppoaa kuin nenä pers.. 4/5

This Beret was way tighter on my head than I expected. Order a size bigger or trim down your hair.
