BW Windstopper watch cap, surplus
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.

Also, this hat is waay too tight and too tall.
Would definitely NOT recommend this one to a friend.

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.

Koosta sen verran, että omaan 57cm päähäni täydellisen sopiva. En lähtisi suosittelemaan niille, joiden pään ympärys on yli 58cm.
Kahden seuraavan pipon kohdalla täytyy todeta, että koot vaihtelevat suuresti ja kunto selkeästi heikompaa kuin ensimmäinen. Harmi ettei enää tullut loistoyksilöitä.

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.

Fits my small head very well. Very warm, very nice. Very used. I sewed the inner to the top of the hat as the discrepancy was annoying me. Mine had the black polyester liner. I didn't realise this is actually from the gore-tex brand, which is really nice considering the price. Definitely worth buying. I hope I never lose it.
