BW Tropical Hat, Flecktarn, surplus
Flecktarn camouflaged tropical bush hat. Used Bundeswehr issue.
The German tropical hat has a higher crown and a more rectangular shape than the US boonie hat. The brim is about 9 cm wide and can be buttoned up from one side to ease aiming. Ventilated with three metallic mesh holes.
80/20% cotton/polyester. Sizes run pretty small, we suggest you take at least one size bigger than usual.
Used German army surplus
The hats are used, but in overall nice condition apart from the occasional slightly faded fabric.

My only complaints are that the brim is shorter than the description says (actually about 2.9 inches/7.5cm Pic: http://i.imgur.com/tc0CgsU.jpg) I still got a bit of sunburn on the tip of my nose/lower face while wearing this, so do mind that if you don't like sunscreen.
Secondly, the chinstrap doesn't have a traditional cord stopper, so you can't tighten or loosen it, it's literally just a small piece of leather with two holes that the strap goes through. Overall, it's still a decent hat and for €10, I'd still recommend it despite these flaws, just get a cord stopper.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
