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.

Sizing

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.

Condition

These are in used, but good condition. Genuine German surplus!

Tänään kaksikin kertaa huomasin, että tämä lakki on hyvä talviseen pyöräilyyn. Ja kypäränkäyttäjät voivat laittaa lakin päälle
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.

Really warm and comfy when upsized by 1 as mentioned in the description. It's ugly as hell though.

I have a 60cm head so I ordered a 61cm hat (the "feldgrau" model, actually) to account for shrinkage. What I received was much, much smaller than expected! On the tag someone marked the hat as a "57" -- which is the size it felt like when I first put it on my head. I soaked the hat in hot water and carefully stretched the hat back to its original size. It now fits my head perfectly. Lesson learned? Order 1 size up to be safe, but be prepared to do some stretching!

Todella mukava ja lämmin hattu. Omani on todella hyvässä kunnossa. Ja miksi te rumaksi tätä hattua haukutte? Hattuhan on helvetin siisti.

Onhan tämä vähän karun näköinen eikä välttämättä yhtä lämmin kuin tyypillinen karvareuhka, mutta toden totta menee ainakin BW:n oman Schuberth 826-kypärän alle ilman ongelmia. Samaa ei voi sanoa tavan karvalakeista.

I ordered one of these last winter and I loved it so much I ordered another! It's the best winter hat I've owned. And I don't have to be delicate with it. I will wad mine up into a ball and cram it into my coat pocket. When I take it out again, it pops right back into shape and still looks the same. Ugly. But very comfortable and warm!

Great cap, ordered two sizes bigger than I normally wear, the cap appears to be unissued. Buy one! You won’t be disappointed! Five star service! Thanks Varusteleka!

Warm and cheap and multifunctional, what else can you wish for.
Washed mine in the machine, 30C and wool cycle, worked fine.

Varusteleka folks haven't lied: Very warm and very, very ugly.

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.

Mine came brand spanking new! Or atleast unissued... Made in 96
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!

A little factoid about these covers... I have a friend, who served in the Bundeswehr, and according to her, these hats were called "bear pussies..." That's nothing, the old Nutria uniforms of South Africa were called "kak bruine..." SHIT brown! And, we called the ALICE pack, Miss ALICE, because she kicked your ass on a hump! SFMF from this jarhead!

Kukapa karusta ulkonäöstä välittäisi kun kyse on näin pirun käytännöllisestä varusteesta. Etelä-Suomen talvessa tämä on nykypäivänä käytännöllisempi kuin perinteinen karvareuhka. Putkikauluri vaan kaveriksi niin pysyy lämpimänä kireissäkin pakkasissa. Toisaalta tämä on hyvin käyttökelpoinen välikausilla ja lämpimämmilläkin keleillä. Vanhva suositus!

Okay it's goofy, if you're buying it for looks don't. Warm and comfy for sure. Mine seems to be new with only warehouse wear. Bought a 61 for my 60 head but might have gotten away with my normal size. Will update when winter comes.
