Ushanka

The Ushanka is a classic Russian military hat which evolved from the type of hats which have been historically used by trappers and outdoorsmen in Germany, Russia, and Scandanavia for centuries. These types of hats have long been tested in the most inclement of weather conditions, and protected millions of people, soldiers and civilians alike, from frostbite and worse.

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.

"This hat wow.... well lets put it in bullet point form. Pros: ~Warm, like amazingly warm regardless of how cold it was outside my head did not chill at all. ~Soft, the rabbit fur was so soft I am nearly considering getting a pet rabbit just to pet. But I have the hat now to pet so why spend more money. ~ The quality seems to be good. However I just got it, I want to see it stand the test of time before I say its great and give this 5 stars. Cons: ~ My head is awkward, it is just a smidge to small for this size and a smidge too big for the next down. Not the manufactures problem though so I wont hold it against them. ~ The cost, I am a cheap person so spending $70 on a hat kinda hurt me deep down. However should it last it will be well worth it! ~ Nothing to tie the ear flaps to the top of the hat. I can only manage to tie them behind my head because when I tie them to the top they slide down, perhaps a small loop or something would help. All in all a seemingly great hat and hopefully a great investment so long as it lasts."

"I am very pleased with my new Ushanka hat; quality, fit, warmth and customer service. This hat will become my "every day" utility hat. In the near future I plan to order a matching "Cossack style" hat for my formal "dress up" hat for special occasions; when I travel or go into the city. When people comment or ask about the hats I will highly recommend FurHatWorld."
