Finnish "Mickey Mouse" headover, surplus
During the Cold War, The Finnish army R&D division came up with this headover; you take a one-hole balaclava, sew it in a boxy form to achieve the ridiculous Mickey Mouse ears, add a scarf to it and voilá, you have a woollen thing to cover your whole head and neck too! Add cool sunglasses or an eye patch, and you have a budget Biker Mice from Mars outfit almost ready.
What else there is to say. Can be worn just as a scarf too, so you don't have to pull it over your head if you don't want to. The material looks and feels like 100% wool, so this keeps you nice and warm, won't collect smells and is generally the best stuff for cold weather, although the army wool doesn't have that princess grade softness to it.
We recommend washing in 30 degrees Celsius with wool cycle. Hang dry.
Note: Some of these are brownish green in colour and a tad thicker. We won't separate these. About 80% are gray in colour.

the wool is very, very thin as far as army scarves go and makes it easily breathable but also not an amazing scarf if not used with the ski mask.
Its a really cool scarf just for the novelty factor but if you are looking for a nice warm scarf i would look for the BW scarf on this site, its cheaper, the wool is a bit more comfy and princess-quality like, its longer and the wool is thicker. i would still totally recommend this thing just because its a good piece of wool that will keep you nice and warm, but if you dont care about the novelty factor and ski-mask i really recommend the BW scarf or any other fully wool scarf, really.

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.
