The Germans decided to make their black winter woolly hats properly; these have a Windstopper-liner to give extra protection. Used Bundeswehr surplus.

A generously sized hat - this can be used to cover much more than a regular cap would. Not as warm as a traditional fur hat but a serious notch up from a regular woolly watch cap.

Usually made of 50 % wool and 50 % polyacryl. Wash in 30 °C.

German army surplus

Used but in OK shape. The material of the Windstopper-lining might vary, but all have the same properties.

Staff review of BW watch cap

It's a great watch cap. A bit too warm for the autumn, but irreplacable when it's really cold. That one time when I was sleeping in a construction yard reenacting a homeless person, I threw away my watch cap and wrapped my scarf around my head. I don't know why.

Laadukkaan tuntuinen, riittävän iso ja mukava pipo. Kunnon pakkasia en ole vielä kokenut sen kanssa, mutta plus viidestä muutamaan pakkasasteeseen menivät mukavasti tämä päässä. Kestää aika hyvin hikoiluakin ilman, että alkaisi heti haista.

The hat on the pic is different then the one i received. Mine's liner is not beige fleece as shown above. They sent me one with a liner that's slick black perforated polyester-like fabric. Maybe there's fleece underneath? I hope so.

Also, this hat is waay too tight and too tall.

Would definitely NOT recommend this one to a friend.

Mukava, mutta vähän hassun näköinen pipo. Tuulensuoja kahisee kun pipoa pyörittelee käsissä, päässä ei.

Got one with slick black inner liner too.
It is absolutely useless - even after I managed to get it on my head (59 cm), it was too tight and not warm at all.

Lämmin ja muuten mukava pipo, mutta koko hieman liian pieni. Ei mahdu kokoa 60> pääkoppaan. Tuulensuojavuori estää venymisen isompaan pääkoppaan.

Näin halvalla parhain pipo mitä voi kuvitella. Lämmittää hyvin, pysäyttää tuulen, jään, veden (ja tulen).

Kävi sit niin, että oma pää oli ihan liian iso eikä kalvo antanut pätkääkään periksi. Näemmä muillakin noita kokemuksia. Muuten mainio kahiseva pirulainen.

It might work OK if you have a fist sized bone in place of your head, but if you have a normal sized dome like me this cap is way too tight.

Mun pipossa on musta polyester vuori, ja koko on riittävän iso mun isoon päähän (60). Hyvä duunipipo, en välttämättä vapaalla käyttäisi...

I ordered one several years ago. I didn' like the polyester lining and decided recently to remove it so now I have a wool cap that is relatively thin but pefectly suited for my climate, it also fits and ventilates much better. For the price and withouth the polyester lining it is a very good deal.

Loistava tuote. Yksinkertaisesti toimiva, pitää tuulen ulkona ohuesta kangasosasta huolimatta ja on testattu sekä toimivaksi todettu viileiltä plussakeleiltä -15°C tienoille. Musta windstopper-sisus ei kahise päässä, vaikka kädessä ääntä pitääkin.
Koosta sen verran, että omaan 57cm päähäni täydellisen sopiva. En lähtisi suosittelemaan niille, joiden pään ympärys on yli 58cm.

Edit:
Kahden seuraavan pipon kohdalla täytyy todeta, että koot vaihtelevat suuresti ja kunto selkeästi heikompaa kuin ensimmäinen. Harmi ettei enää tullut loistoyksilöitä.

Ensimmäinen varustelekasta tilaamani tuote, eli ostettu varmaan noin 10 vuotta sitten, edelleen erinomaisessa kunnossa,siitä 5 tähteä. Kuvasta poiketen sileäkankainen musta sisus, ei hengitä, mutta pitääk tuulen ja on lämmin, joskus turhankin.

This fits great with a 59/60 CM melon, or 7-1/4" Warm without being crazy thick like some winter hats, it should repel wind well too. I really like mine, great winter work hat that is well made and fits great. I like the smooth liner against my bald head. I am going to order a couple more. Great deal for this quality of hat.

Decent watch cap, nothing great but nothing bad. Size is a bit tight, consider ordering one size over your normal head size. Mine also had some kind of windstopper polyester rather than fleece inside.

Ostin ensin yhden. Olin pari talvea kuin Sulo Vilen: Pidin ja rakastin pipoani jatkuvasti. Käytön jäljet alkoivat näkyä, ja tilasin myöhemmin itselleni sekä pojilleni uudet. Niissä kaikissa koko oli sellainen ettei mennyt edes 12-vuotiaan alakoululaisen kupoliin. Käyttämättä jäivät ja hautautuivat jonnekin. Vähän vaikea pisteyttää kun yksi oli jumalainen, ja kolme täyttä roskaa. Paikan päältä ostettuna ja kokeiltuna ok, jos löytää sopivan koon. Postimyyntinä omien kokemusten mukaan 75% todennäköisyydellä käy jälkikasvun Baby Bornille, jos sillekään.

Hit and miss!
I bought one at first - it was new, fit my size 57 head nicely, and had a thick, black polyester liner and thick wool on the outside. Very warm, good quality materials.

Then I bought two more. One was made in SK (Slovakia?) and was really, really big and had a thin polyester liner, and very thin wool on the outside. The third was a bit small, obviously used, and was somewhere in the middle between the other two, quality wise.

So - get a few, and you might be able to use most of them. For the price, it's still a bargain.

The product is good but the size is ridiculously small...doesn't fit my 57cm head by a long shot.

Mine fits a little small, although I've got a larger head -- 61-62 cm probably. I have the slinky black polyester lining version and while it is used, it still has a lot of life left. No holes or repairs that I could see. It's a little tight and I have to really work to get it to cover my ears, but what is covered is surprisingly warm. I live in Winnipeg, Canada and we just had a cold spell where it regularly hit -40 (a couple days -50 with wind chill) and the parts that were covered stayed pretty warm. Shockingly warm, actually, as the material feels pretty thin when you first get it. I have another well-made (in Canada) 100% wool hat that doesn't come close to this for warmth.

Mine arrived in good shape. It was very small at first, but I just got it wet and stretched it to fit my (60 cm) head. Good to go!

Great cap, Incredibly warm and robust, but only just comfortably on my 60cm head.
If yours is bigger them I am not recommend.
