Finnish fur hat, gray, surplus

Finnish fur hat, gray, surplus

14.99 EUR

In the merry year of 1939, the Finnish army came out with a fur hat good and proper. What's even more, it did not look like it came from Soviet Union, but it looked spectacularly Finnish. This hat model was so good that it was retired from active service in the early 2000's. The successor? Same but camouflaged.

Särmä Finnish M36 leather jacket

Särmä Finnish M36 leather jacket

199.99 EUR

Sometimes there's no need to come up with new ideas, just dig them from the past - during the war years, the Finnish army had a very spiffy leather jacket issued to tank crews. Just like tanks, these jackets were few and far between. We did some intensive research and decided to revive these glorious relics, and here they are! A high quality reproduction of this fantastic piece.

Särmä Henley Shirt, merino wool

69.99 EUR

Mil-Tec spoon-fork, steel

9.99 EUR

Wehrmacht M35 side cap, repro, used

Wehrmacht M35 side cap, repro, used

12.99 EUR

Helmet aside, this was the only field headwear for German infantry at the start of WW2. It was used throughout the war. Mil-Tec/STURM reproduction, used in the movie Tuntematon Sotilas III.

Looking for the best reproduction of the Finnish "Blood Scoop" ever made? Look no further, these are made in Germany by an old headwear manufacturer! Needless to say, the quality is absurdly good.

The design looks much like the German M43 cap, except this predates the Teutonic example by many years. Somehow the Finnish army managed to develop headgear that's actually practical, good to wear and liked by the soldiers. It looks surprisingly relaxed for an army field cap, especially when worn nonchalantly just slammed on the head, like many original photos show. Accompany it with wrinked tunic collars, unshaven stubble, and a smoke and you have that traditional impression of a Finnish soldier.

A special mention goes to the metal buttons, which are apparently made with proper old machinery and are qualitywise at least as good as the original Finnish buttons, maybe even better.

Materials

Made of 100% wool with cotton lining. The wool is woven in Poland, but finished in Germany. Hand wash in lukewarm water, if you really have to wash it. Hang dry only.

The manufacturer's tab is intentionally sewn on "shoddily" so it can be easily removed.

Size info

The fit is somewhat generous. If you want to play it safe, order one size smaller than you usually would wear.

Varusteleka Särmä

Särmä is our own brand of clothing and equipment. When you're buying Särmä you're getting purpose built stuff at a decent price, something that will fill it's intended role well and not cost you an arm and a leg!

Made in Germany!

Now, we strongly believe that a thing as important in the Finnish folklore as the M36 field cap should NOT bear "Made in China" labels. As the clothing industry in Finland is pretty much dead, we decided to turn to the traditional comrades-at-arms, the Germans. What do you know, we came in contact with an old headgear manufacturer still in business, Robert Lubstein Mützenfabrik GmbH. The same company produced hats for the armed forces back then, so they know waht they're doing. Also, it's very possible some Finnish caps were made in Germany during the war. Who knows, they might have found the old sewing patterns from their archives...

So, here is THE best reproduction of the M36 field cap in the market.

This was an expensive purchase, but I have no regrets forking over that kind of money for a quality product. The material and craftsmanship is top of the line. One couldn't have used better resources of techniques crafting the hat.

The added bonus is the piece of history you carry around on your head, and the conversations you will have wearing it. I definitely got a lot of stares wearing it around Germany, and met alot of people, and made some good friends even. I think they mistook it as a German M43.

Cons: It can get too warm if you live in a warmer place. I don't, but I have and I still wear it anyways.

A very high quality reproduction, i would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a classic ski cap. I think this is the best looking of its kind, the peak is just perfect in size for my taste and the cap really looks good on you.
I would recommend that you pick your actual size, and not to go down one size. I've tried both size 60 and 61 (I'm a size 61) and size 61 fits me perfectly.

I only wear it out in the woods and mountains as that is where it belongs, I don't think it particularly fits the urban look.

Over all it is probably the best repro of the M36 out there, as most made elsewhere look poorly made and overall not that nice. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for that classy look while going on hikes, and anyone who likes these kind of caps.

One of my first "pricey" buys relating to repro M36 uniform items.

German made, so you know it will be good quality...and, as expected, no concerns there. The small maker label was very easily removed...and as easily I also added the blue & white cockade...
BUT
If you study the period photos, all the caps in use look like a T34 tank has driven over them prior to use. (Having it happen while IN use would not be the best way to achieve a custom fit...)
So, as soon as I got the cap & tried it for fit - I take a 59 & this size was perfect - I then had to give the cap some "age". How to do this?
I just wore it all day for several months, as I work alone = no problem. It quickly lost the "new" edge & took on a more WW2 appearance.
Very very happy with this purchase, I only wish I'd also taken the plunge with the M36 summer blouse & the cotton M36 cap (Lotta Svard type) when they were available!

TO ADD
Just fitted the cap with a leather headband/sweatband. Makes it appear more like some of the genuine WW2 caps, plus makes the fit a little more snug. IF you wanted to do a similar modification it may be better to go a size up from your normal fitting....as the fit becomes a little more snug = ideal for colder weather as next to zero movement.
