OPP Mouton Sheepskin Trapper Hat. This trapper hat is made with extra thick, warm black mouton sheepskin and a water resistant black nylon shell. It has twill ties that extend from the ear flaps. The ear flaps can be worn down for extra warmth or neatly folded up and tied at the top. This is the hat worn by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) in Canada. It is standard issue to all OPP officers.
Mouton fur refers to lamb hair which has been straightened and thermally set to produce a moisture repellent finish.
I served in Toronto Police from 1967 to 1984, then returned to UK. Have survived several winters with cheap "fur" hats, mostly imported from far away in the east. NO MORE !! This hat is identical to the one issued in Toronto towards the end of my time there. Now I am happy. Great hat, perfect fit and toasty warm. Excellent service and delivered earlier than advised.

OPP Mouton Sheepskin Trapper hat looks and feels good. Looking foreward to having a warm head this winter which is too be colder. Service good. Shipping was quick.
bought the trapper hat for the increasingly cold winters we are having here. fabulous product with great service delivery in michigan. almost waiting for winter again.
I ordered a Mouton Sheepskin OPP Trapper hat as a Christmas present to myself and it turned out to be one of the best and most useful gifts I received, if I do say so myself! The quality of the workmanship and materials is obvious as soon as you touch it. It is so warm and comfortable to wear in addition to being very fashionable. I've received a number of compliments on it and questions about where I got it. So, I would have no reservations about recommending this hat to anyone who is thinking about buying one as a gift for someone else or, as I did, for oneself. It was shipped promptly and even included instructions on how to properly take care of it. And the bonus is: it was made right here in Canada!

Bought this hat for a trip to Astana, Kazakhstan. Worked great in -25C conditions. Agree with the other comments to order one size bigger.

Very well made, lovely fur - quick order process and amazingly quick delivery. The gift recipient was thrilled...I agree with Geekasaurus re: sizing - go one size up to fit perfectly.
