The Russian Ushanka in the English-speaking world, it is sometimes referred to as a shapka. However, this usage is not accurate, but is rather a Russian language word meaning simply 'hat'. Ushanka literally translates as 'ear flaps hat'.
Though ushanka hats are a distinctly Russian hat, indeed, the stereotypical Russian is seen to wear one. The wearing of fur hats of similar design is common throughout China, North Korea, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. It is possible that Russians adopted this design from Mongols during the Middle Age Mongol invasion of Russia.
Russian hats are often made from rabbit fur and muskrat fur, though other animal fur, such as beaver fur or coyote fur, are not uncommon for Russian hats, with particularly fine examples being made of mink fur, raccoon fur or high-quality sheepskin.
The increasing worldwide demand for Russian style fur hats has prompted us to make it a priority to offer them in a wide variety of designs using a variety of fur, leather, and sheepskin choices.

"My Dad had always wanted a genuine beaver fur hat. Being from Texas, there isn't a great NEED for a super warm fuzzy hat in the winter. But, that's what he wanted. That being said, when I found this website and saw this hat I knew I had to get it for him as his Father's Day gift this year. It really is a beautiful hat and definitely looks like it will keep his head and ears warm during our week of winter in Texas haha :) He tried it on indoors and said that his head did not feel sweaty or overheated, just cozy. Happy to have found my Dad the hat he always wanted."

"This is an excellent product! It fits well both with the ear flaps up and down. I ordered the brown in medium and the size chart was accurate for me. This is not my first experience with FurHatWorld, and their staff has always been very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. Shipping has always been prompt."

"Very comfortable and just what I wanted except the color. I asked for brown and even the label showed brown but it was black. It is so good that I am wearing it right now!"

"I would give 4.5 stars but I cannot. It's great. Only small problem one side near the ear has less pile and because I wear glasses it pinches my ear a little. The other side has pile in the same section. This is a minor detraction from an otherwise very comfortable hat. (No glasses, can't tell.)"

"I was a little skeptical at first, because all I read was very positive feedback. Nobody had a bad experience? When I received my hat it was awesome. Quality, Value, 5 star all the way. I would not hesitate to buy again."

"This is the best hat I have ever owned! It is so warm and it looks so good even my wife likes it (she normally hates everything.) It is so warm and comfortable that I will take it on my LDS Church Mission this September. This is a very high class company that I would recommend to everyone. Their shipping is outstanding and their customer service is exceptional."
