An essential bit of winter kit: the headover or toque. The German armed forces have used this for ages. This tube-like piece of cloth was originally a Wehrmacht issue item: go ahead and look at any old photos from the eastern front and you'll see the popularity.

The headover was abandoned in West Germany, but the NVA of the DDR continued to produce and issue damn near identical toques. Known affectionately as "Oma" (grandmother) by the troops.

A toque is basically a tubular knitted wool scarf. Fold it into itself once or twice for neck protection, or tug higher to protect the lower face and even the ears. If you want to fully protect your neck and head, buy two of these.

The length varies a bit, usually these are 35 cm but sometimes shorter.

Army surplus from the DDR

These are NVA surplus, and mostly unissued or in a very good shape.

Ensin hommasin jonkun toisen putkikaulurin, mutta se oli turhan pitkä ja turhan kireä (ehkä käytön puutteesta?). Tämä on sopivan mittainen, iloisen värinen, mutta hieman karkea. Herkkänahkaista voi häiritä.

Kutiseeko? Joo, kyllä se kommunistisesti vähän kutisee. Ihan tarpeeks lämpöinen silti. Hengitä sen läpi -30°C iltakävelyllä ja pudota hetkeksi kaulalle, karvalaite jäätyy hilpeästi irvistyksesi muotoiseksi.

For the price you can't go wrong. Wool is just the best for cold and wet environments. This is old school so there is a bit of scratching on the neck, but who cares this is way better than something synthetic and modern for twice the price.

Mine seem to be as new as one can be with a lovely hint of surplus smell. A bit thicker than I first thought.
Scratching is there (nothing too bad, really) but I hardly notice it. Has a nice fit and is warm as one would expect!
Excellent value for the price!

Very dependable, warm, and fashionable. This is a killer deal for $10. Can be used to cover the face up to the nose in cold weather, pairs very well with a watch cap/beanie and a comfy field jacket. Mine came in near new condition.

Best neck tube I own, out of 10 or so. Love it! Not too tight, thick enough to be warm well below 25F, and breatheable so you don't sweat when it's warmer. Another great bargain among military gear! buy two.

Got mine yesterday and wore it straight from the box on my bike ride into work this morning. Still has that lovely stored surplus smell. Feels thick, warm, and deliciously old-school. A bit scratchy, so you know it's real wool. Fits under my helmet without any issues, and stretches beautifully despite the thickness. Worth the price, which is not bad at all. Would recommend to anyone.

Good neck warmer, in a neutral grey greenish color.
No label to know what is made from, but accordingly to the little scratchy sensation on my neck skin, it should be mainly made of wool.
Comfortable to wear, and nicely warm.

Saksan laatu on aina Saksaa, oli se sitten kommunistien tekemää tai ei.

Suhteellisen napakka, ainakin Särmän paksuun putkikauluriin verrattuna. Ehkä hieman kutistunut jossain pesussa, mutta juuri minulle se sopii kuin tukka päähän.

Omani oli enemmän ruskehtavan oliivinvihreä kuin harmaa (tismalleen niin kuin tuossa toisessa tuotekuvassa!), ja ensireaktioni olikin, että nyt tämä on varmasti joku tiimarin pilipalianönnönnööakryylimuovisankkokopio tehty jossain Jugoslaviassa, mutta käyttäessäni sitä varmistuin siitä että se: A. on villaa B. On helvetin laadukas.

Nyt testattu metsätöissä noin -15 pakkasessa, lämmittää kaulaa hyvin muttei kuitenkaan "hauduta" , koska villa hengittää.

Kutisee lievästi, muttei senkään vertaa ettäkö ottaisin tähtiä pois. Jos olet kova jätkä, tuonvertainen kutina ei haittaa sinua.

I received mine yesterday in the mail. I was quite charmed by the smell of this when I opened it for the first time (Odd thing to note, I realize), reminds me of something my grandmother would have used in the kitchen. It's very comfortable around the neck, sits on my chin quite comfortable, albeit a bit loose if I raise it any higher. I don't even mind the scratchy feeling at all, goes to show that it is authentic and not a synthetic material. Solid product, will recommend to a friend.

Karkean tuntuinen, mutta ei kutita. Pysyy hyvin muodossaan. Erinomainen kauluksettoman villapaidan tai flanellipaidan kanssa, mutta ainakin itsellä vähän kiristävä poolon kaverina. Toimii parhaiten sellaisten takkien kanssa, joissa on huonosti suojaava kaulus tai käytettäessä ohutta aluspaitaa kuoritakin kanssa, jolloin niska palelee helposti.

It even fits over my 63 cm bucket of a head, great. Now I just I wish I bought more.

Villaa parhaimmillaan! Jämäkkää, kestävää ja paksua tavaraa eikä mitään höttöistä hippimateriaalia. Kaikessa primitiivisyydessään paras ja käytännöllisin asuste jolla pään ja kaulan seutua voi talvella suojata. Tämä itäsaksalainen tuote on 10 kertaa laadukkaampi kuin mikään näkemäni "kaupallinen" putkikauluri. Ainoa heikkous on hieman lyhyt pituus, siitä puoli tähteä pois. Ilmeisesti sain tavallista lyhyemmän yksilön. BW villapaidan, BW talvireuhkan ja NVA putkikaulurin perusteella voin julistaa että saksmannit ovat tehneet tosi hyviä talvivaatteita sen jälkeen mitä siellä Schtalingradissa tapahtui.
