The beloved Bigeard, one of historys coolest military headpieces ever made with the two-prong "swallowtail" protecting the neck.

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!
