Finnish fur hat, gray, surplus

Finnish fur hat, gray, surplus

14.99 EUR

In the merry year of 1939, the Finnish army came out with a fur hat good and proper. What's even more, it did not look like it came from Soviet Union, but it looked spectacularly Finnish. This hat model was so good that it was retired from active service in the early 2000's. The successor? Same but camouflaged.

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.
