We decided to breath some new life into the traditional Finnish "blood ladle" field cap with this glorious 21st century iteration: modern polycotton ripstop fabric and Finnish M05 camouflage and solid green colour options.

  • Sizing with 1 cm increments
  • Fabric reinforced pliable peak
  • Fold-down neck/chin flap with Finnish lion buttons
  • Thin cotton liner
  • Material: 50/50 cotton/polyester

A little bit of history

The Finnish "verikauha" (= blood ladle, no one really knows where the name comes from) is as old as Finland itself. This style of caps were first widely issued in the First World War to German and Austro-Hungarian mountain troops. The design was brought to Finland in 1918 by Finnish Jägers returning from training in Germany. From there on it was the go-to field cap design for "White" troops during the Finnish Civil War.

After the Civil War the "verikauha" became the official piece of headwear for Finnish troops. It was used through WW2 up to the 21st century with a number of different variants evolving throughout the decades.

Materials

Fabric: 50/50 polycotton ripstop. Naturally the camo print is totally NIR compliant, so you don´t need to fear looking all lit-up when viewed through NVDs. The Lion emblem buttons are Finnish made by the Defence Forces official contractor.

To make sure the fabric does not lose it´s NIR compliant properties we recommend careful wash using only detergents that are free of optical brighteners, basically the more natural you get the better.

Sizing

These are sized according to the wearers head circumference. The fit is "normal," not tight, not roomy. If you want a very, very sharp look you can try downsizing one step, after a bit of wet forming you´ll have a ridiculously sharp looking piece of headwear!

Launch Partystä tuli poimittua oma mukaan :)
Onneksi oli mahdollisuus paikan päällä sovittaa sillä vaikka yleensä koko 57 on sopiva, nyt tuli sovittelun jälkeen päädyttyä kokoon 59.

Lakki itsessään saattaa olla kokoa 59, mutta vaikuttaisi siltä että hikinauha on "ommeltu ylälanka liian tiukalla" tms.mikä syö kokoa.
Jos jaksan niin jossain vaiheessa varmaankin ratkon tuon turvavyömäistä materiaalia olevan hikinauhan pois ja korvaan sen saman levyisellä (25 mm) puuvillahihnalla (jolloin mahdollisesti menee koon säätämiseksi nappien siirtelyllä — nappejakin voisi samalla vaihtaa vähän neutraalimmiksi)

Muutoin työn jälki ja kangas vaikuttavat erittäin hyviltä, suosittelen

Varusteleka vastaa: Lakkien mitoitus on muutettu uudemmissa tuotantoerissä, nyt nämä istuvat ns. "normaalisti". Eli valitsemalla oman kokosi saat mukavan rennosti istuvan lakin ja jos haluat tiukemman/särmemmän voit sitten itse valita kokoa pienemmän.

Todella tyylikäs ja kaikin puolin laadukas tosimiehen päähine! Ainoa miinus on toi kokotaulukko, kannattaa valkkailla oikeesti isompi kun mitä notmaalisti käyttää. Minähän tätä en uskonu, normikoko mulla on 57 ja oli niin pieni ettei päähän meinannu mahtua. No nyt 58:n kokeiltua veikkaan et seuraavalla tärppää, tässä just tilailen kokoa 59...
Joka tapauksessa iso peukku!

Erinomaisen monipuolinen lippalakki. Tämän pitäisi olla jakotavaraa, samassa lakissa särmyys ja äärimmäinen käytännöllisyys. Hörökorvat saa talvikelissä lähemmäs ihoa lämmittelemään kun särmää sopivasti. Koko kannattaa valittaa juuri oikea tai koon pienempi. Linkkien takaa kuvat omista särmäyksistä.

I'm a solid 59cm head, and the 59cm is _just_ big enough, so be aware. Totally awesome though. Going to make my own in the cold weather scheme (just a little bigger).

Koko kannattaa mieluummin valita se oikea nyky intin koko. Erehdyin ottamaan omistamani alkuperäisen verikauhan koon mukaan 59 kun intissä käytin 60 barettia yms. 59 on suhteellisen tiukka ja kun hikinauha ei ole nahkaa niinkuin aidossa saa päähänsä helposti hienon rengaskuvion. Muuten kyllä hyvännäköinen ja ok lakki. Hikinauha jos olisi pehmeämpi antaisin enemmän tähtiä.

Had one for a bit over 6 months now (earlier version?) and have found it very comfortable and great to wear even when the weather is warm. At first I thought that I had ordered the wrong size - I am a size 61 and ordered that size only to find it very loose but as soon as it was washed it became more like the size I expected. Great bit of kit.

Todella tyylikäs ja mukavan tuntuinen päässä. Erästely käyttöön lähinnä tilasin, mutta pitihän se tilata toinenkin kipale ihan ns sivistyksen parissa käyttelyynkin, kätevästi samassa lakissa risteytyy tyylikkyys ja lievähkö renttumaisuus.


Oma majakka on kokoa 58 ja vastaava koko istui oikein särmästi päähän, pesun jälkeen ehkäpä vielä aavistuksen särmemmin.

In the Winter i enjoy wearing my Panzer m43 Field cap, but with the summer approaching i felt i needed something a bit less warm. I've always wanted a summer Field cap, but i couldnt find any that had the vintage looking "button flap"-thingy and a cool history behind it, but this one has!
It fits perfectly and with the simple OD green color it has quickly become one of my favorite hats

I am proud to hold every m36-style Headwear  that's sold over varusteleka and i have to admit, that this field cap is one of the best (and coolest looking) caps, i've bought so far. Totally worth the money. If you want to read a little bit more about this cap you can visit my blog:
