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.

"Here in the Pacific Northwest we don't get cold weather that often anymore. But this Feburary we got a lot of snow and cold weather. I have always wanted a real fur hat and now I have two, and I love them both. They are the real deal I have the mink hat and now the rabbit one and when I wear either one people always say very nice hat or I love that hat. And the staff at FurHatWorld have always been awesome !"

"So far this a great authentic (or extremely close to authentic, Ushanka); I've been searching for an authentically Russian Ushanka for quite some time; outside of Moscow and St Petersburg these are not so easy to find, but we are very satisfied with Fur Hat World- a great product and great service; The fur is warm and the construction is very impressive; I wear this Ushanka regularly-especially during the more severe (Russian like) cold temperatures that happen here in Northern Colorado and the hat is so warm; We will definitely refer friends to Fur Hat World and we will definitely order my wife's Mink Coat from Fur Hat World as well; Thank you Fur Hat World"

"- Shipping was very fast. - Ordered Mouton Sheepskin version. - High quality in every detail. - Look at the photo with flaps down. Shows that the top is fabric. Still very warm. Would be too hot if there was further lining or cover on the top. Product exactly matches the photos. - Have worn it to -20C and still warm with sides down. Sides down a must in cold weather. - As all have said, pay strict attention to the size guide. I measured multiple times and ordered XL. (usually a Large) XL Fit a bit tight but I dry stretched it with a soccer ball overnight and it contracted back to a perfect size. If you're close to the line go up a size as they fit small. - Highly recommend this hat for very cold weather"

"I just got this Russian Style hat to use hunting next year in Iowa. I already had one of the trapper styles but it was a large and was too small once I had something under it, so I ordered this new one in XL. It should work fine. I was there in Iowa hunting in early January 2019 and this hat worked extremely well. It kept my head warm and the sides of my face warm. I hunt when its really cold and windy and at least i don't have to worry about my head being cold! Great product!"

"Very pleased! I lived in Russia for several years in the 1990s and have many similar hats of various furs. My son whom I adopted from Russia wanted one of his own as a young adult. This hat is as good as any I've seen, tried, or owned. It was delivered as promised and fits well. The price was reasonable."

"I bought this hat for a trip to Austria and Prague to tour the Christmas Markets this December, 2018. I have to say it was a great purchase and I would recommend anyone that is going to be outside in cold weather this is the hat for you. I left it in the room one day thinking it would be too warm for it, but the wind was up and the toboggan that I carried was not enough. Great quality, look and versatility. You can wear the ear muffs all the way up, adjust to cover your ears and then all the way down and fastened for maximum warmth. 5 stars."
