About our Ushanka
Ushankas feature a perfectly round hat crown which has three flaps. The two ear flaps have been designed to unfold in order to provide protection to the ears of the wearer. It is possible to wear the hat in a few different ways as a result, with varying degrees of protection for your skin. When fully unfolded and strapped around your chin, the hat protects your ears, cheeks and chin quite well. It can be quite effective in keeping you comfortable in extremely low temperatures as a result.
Since the Ushanka was heavily used in the mid to late 19th century by the Russian military as part of the Telogreika and Afghanka uniforms, it is often seen as stereotypically Russian. In fact it's so ingrained in the western image of Russia that is has been used in media such as film, television, and cartoons to depict the common "Ivan" as always wearing this hat. But in modern times this beautiful, iconic hat has also risen in prominence as a very fashionable and utilitarian piece of headgear.
You can easily make a classic splash with our fine selection of Ushankas. We have very affordable Ushankas made of real rabbit fur, as well as faux fur options. Since these are warm materials you'll be kept toasty warm in the winter months and looking good the whole time. With our good selection of colors to choose from you can find something that matches your particular style and wardrobe perfectly.

"It's great - fits as sized (large enough) and excellent quality. Customer service was also proactive about confirming a detail of the order before it was sent."

"I bought a black rabbit fur ushanka years ago and have always loved it. It is lovely and warm, perhaps a little too warm, as I can only wear it if it is really cold. Friends are always impressed by it, so much so that one has bought himself one too and I have just purchased another for a friend. It is great quality and the shopping experience is quick and simple, and the delivery too."

"The hat is very warm and I have received many positive comments on it. Unfortunately it is a bit too big. Nothwithstanding it is a great hat."

"I wanted to make sure I had enough time using it before I reviewed it. This is very warm sometimes too warm, but not a drawback. It takes some outside noise once it's on and it's very wind resistant when tied by the leather cords. I use it with the flaps up or down more so down because it's stylish that way. Overall I am very pleased with it and get compliments on it and the shipping was A ( very fast ). I will definitely purchase another item from Fur Hat World again in the future. Highly recommend their products."

"This is my second hat from Fur Hat World, actually third if you count the one I got for my wife. When measuring my head it appears as if I should buy one size, but last time the hat was a little to snug. For this hat, I ordered one size larger and are happy with the fit. It does seem to leave a little bulge around the ears when the flaps are down, but over all very warm."
