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 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."
