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.

"Great hat! I have worn this hat on a number of occasions, it is warm and fits perfect and I like the design and quality. I have received a number of complements about the hat. Once I ordered the hat it was processed and ready for shipping the same day. I previously order a more expensive rabbit fur hat, unfortunately I did not like the fit or the way it looked on me. Not a problem because FurHatWorld let me return the hat and provided me a refund. I have already recommended FurHatWorld to a number of my friends."

"Lovely quality hat - great fit and finish however it definitely comes up small. Had to return my first one (XL) and order the next size up (2XL). My hat size is at the low end of the XL range. Hopefully that will fit better. Speedy service to the UK. Just over a week from order to delivery.. Thanks"
