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.

"I like this hat very much. It'll keep my ears toasty warm on brutally cold days. But the flaps hang down a bit long when I tie them together, making it so that the fur doesn't make contact with the lower sides of my cheeks and the underside of my chin, leaving my neck exposed. But I'll have a tailor add a snap to secure the fur more snugly."

"Good reliable company. Hat arrived when they said it would. Well packed.The fur on this hat was not as long or luxurious as the one in the photos on here but I guess that hat was the best of the bunch for the advertising photos..all animal skins are different afterglow.But still a very good hat all the same and would recommend furhatworld."
