BW field cap, cold weather, Flecktarn, surplus
This piece of headgear is worn mainly for two reasons - it is very warm and unbelievably ugly.
After rough experience gained in the Second World War the Germans realized that field equipment should be designed with more emphasis on practical functionality, and looks in parades became less important.
The hat is basically a field cap with insulating lining. Flaps on the sides can be lowered to cover the ears and chin. The inside is green imitation fur. Another flap without lining is located under the visor, which can be turned to cover the forehead (or eyes for extra challenge), and a lightly insulated strip can be turned down to protect the ears and back of the head.
The hat is designed to fit under a helmet and does so quite well. In addition to military purposes this serves anyone who rides a bike during cold weather.
Circumference of the head in centimetres is a common European sizing system. Because these are used and might have shrunk a bit, we advise to size up one step.
Material and care
- Outer fabric: 80/20% cotton-polyester w. Flecktarn-pattern
- Lining: 100% wool
- Faux fur: 50/50% cotton-acryl
Don't wash this item. Chemical cleansing with tetrachlorethylene is advised.
These are in used, but good condition. Genuine German surplus!

kypärän. Pitää hyvin viiman loitolla sieltä mistä pitääkin ja oikein kylmälle kantsii laittaa alle myssy, joko yksi- tahi kolmeaukkoinen
maun mukaan ja tällöin kannattaa tämän lakin olla numeroa suurempi kuin mitä tarvii ilman alusmyssyä.

Washed mine in the machine, 30C and wool cycle, worked fine.

As for sizes: Go big. I ordered +2 and it fits comfortably.
Quality is excellent, as expected, and the design is very functional. Pretty sure mine is unissued, condition is basically brand new except for the typical surplus odour.
So if you live somewhere cold and don't have or want any friends and don't care about looking like an idiot, get one of these. The price is a steal.

Size wise they run small and a big reason for that are the extra flaps that folds in so i would recommend you upsize atleast 2cm if you have a big head like me. With some minor customisation (cutting the earflaps off) the hat fits great and it´s super warm!
