Today the Russian army is all fine and modern, and when you gaze upon these desert clothes, you instantly know why they drink so much. Now available a small batch of current issue Sovi-, agh, we always get it wrong, Russian stuff used today in Syria! Ugly as fuck! Wonderful!

The "BTK" series field uniform clearly has its heritage in the late Soviet era Afganka uniforms, which were actually quite modern. A part of the uniform is this bog standard cap. Of course in Russia the concept of soldiers wearing a bog standard cap is quite new, however they did include a traditional metal cockade on the forehead to offset this (cockade not always included). Now depending on the perspective of the viewer, these are either ruined or vastly improved with the pinkish scheme not unlike a pig's skin. No wonder, this is what the Russians call the uniform - 'piggy'.

Army "surplus"

Used and rarely washed, just like Russian stuff usually is. Because of the beautiful colour, any stains or dirt show up pretty well. These are however intact. Selling these to the civilian market is of course forbidden, but for the right amount of roubles an enterprising storeman could maybe lose them.

I have always wanted one of these ever since I saw sailors from the Russian Pacific Fleet with these caps on. Their caps had of course the naval cockade (which are incidentally also for sale in the webshop) instead of the army ones. Mine arrived today in used but good condition. The cap is surpisingly well-made from thick and proper materials. Unfortunately, mine came without a cockade, but it was not a problem for me since I wanted and subsequently ordered the naval one as well. These caps are near impossible to find, so I am definitely satisfied and not regretting my purchase at all. "Hats off" (pun intended) to whoever managed to sneak in this shipment and made them available for sale at the webshop.

Army surplus

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.
