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).

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.

Colour is a grayish green, as usual with items with a German background.

Sizes

Regular European hat sizes: head circumference in centimetres. Due to slight shrinkage it might be a good idea to size up one notch: if you usually wear 58, pick 59 from these. To convert to American sizing (head diameter in inches), first divide by 3.142 and then by 2.54.

Used German army surplus

These are in used, but good condition.

Exactly as advertised, warm but my girlfriend thinks it's ugly.
Tough luck for her, since I do not like having my ears freeze off during the winter, the cap stays.
A steal for the €2.99 I paid for it - recommended.

These seem to run small and/or have all shrunk considerably, but you should be able to stretch them back to their original size. I have a 59.5 cm head so I ordered a 61cm hat to account for shrinkage. What I received was much, much smaller than expected! On the tag someone marked the hat as a "60." Later, probably to account for shrinkage, someone marked it 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 it back to its original size. Lesson learned? Order AT LEAST one size larger to be safe, but be prepared to do a little stretching.

I'm usually a 57 so i bought a 58 and it fits great (i do believe a 57 would have been ok). I was out in the Derbyshire snow at the weekend and my head was warm with the ear flaps down.
Thanks.

Got two in two different orders, ordered a size 60 both times, both caps received had the 60 crossed-out and had 58 written on the tag next to it with a marker. Both are obviously too small for my head, but are otherwise in good condition. May take to local surplus store, as European militaria doesn't turn up often in this town.

They run about 3 sizes too small, unfortunately; it fits my wife though.

A bit small at first, but stretch it a bit (or order a size or two up), and it's perfect. Surprisingly waterproof (the outer layer gets completely soaked, but almost nothing gets through) and really warm.

Sitten lapsuuden minulla ei ole ollut näin hyvin istuvaa lakkia! Monella tapaa muuntuva ja lämmin tuulessa ja tuiskussa (kovat pakkaset vielä testaamatta). Ruma kuin mikä, mutta se on muiden murhe.
