French F2 "Bigeard" cap, surplus
The beloved Bigeard, one of historys coolest military headpieces ever made with the two-prong "swallowtail" protecting the neck. Made in France!
Known as the Bigeard in France, after it's creator Marcel Bigeard, an officer in the (among others) the war in Indochina. Since then many armies have copied the design, known as the "swallowtail cap" in English or "Kiko" in Portuguese. From it's roots in Indochina the Bigeard has moved far and wide, the style was one of the most copied designs in the many little wars that tore through Africa in the late 1900's.
Sometimes we get these without the neck flap. These are always sold separately.
Pro-Tip: Apart from being quite a cool design, the cut is also quite simple. I you're into DIY and sewing, cut one of these apart, use the pieces as templates and recreate this legendary piece in your own favourite colour or camo pattern!
Sized according to head circumference in centimetres. For a classic Portuguese playfool look, choose one size smaller than you usually wear, or if you want to look more serious, just pick our correct size.

Sain lakin jus ja just päähän ilman kenkälusikkaa, joten tuli ostettua siis mallia retee portugalilainen. :D
Ihan törkeen ruman mahtava reuhka, mikä tulee koristamaan "kruunua" meloessa. Ei taatusti tuuli vie!
Niskan "pappi-liparit" jeesannee pahimmalta keskipäivän kuumotukselta.
