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 bought one of these brown fur hats from here almost 10 years ago in Dec 2011 and it has served me amazingly. From a chilly November morning to hiking up a mountain during a snow storm it has kept my head warm and has never failed me. And despite heavy use and wear the hat still looks and works great. I wish I could post photos of how it looked then and now so anyone reading this could see how good it's held up. Definitely worth getting one. I plan on buying the same hat from here on the day I bought my original hat so the old one can be retired 10 years to the day I got it. Yes, it's that sentimental to me."

"Very nice, stylish, functional hat. The shearling is a bit course on the skin at first but that quickly goes away and the hat is excellent."
