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. These are dark blue, almost black navy issue hats.
The affectionate name for these in the army is elphant pussy. However, worry not, real elephants have not been used to make these for decades - instead these are made of high quality wool, cotton and fake fur.
No cockade included unfortunately, those have probably been picked out one by one by some poor blanket stacker and stored away. All the hats we have are manufactured from the 70's to 90's - a couple even had 1999 printed on the tags!

However: The sizes are quite small. Order a size up - perhaps even two. My 6-year-old boy wears a size 55 of these hats...

Oma päänympärykseni 57 cm ja saman koon lakki oli juurikin sopiva... (uuullatus!)
Hyväkuntoinen ja raikas.

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.
