*Note* Majority of badges are the small roundal, however there are some large badges mixed in (also with a different fabric colour hue). These will be picked at random, see last photo for comparison

Genuine East German (German Democratic Republic) Army issue ushanka. The war was cold and so was the winter air. Troops would wear these warm ushankas to protect their head, ears, and chin from the cold. The faux fur (or fish fur) ear flaps can be buttoned under the chin or tied back, ski-style. These remained as part of the winter German Police uniform after the reunification of Germany.

The genuine East German insignia makes this a nice piece for a collector. Or wear it in the colder months to stay warm.

Great, functional, cool little piece of history

This ushanka is far better than any beanie I've had at keeping my head warm. The sizing was accurate and fits like a glove (for reference I got a 56cm circumference one). A cool little note is that the front where the badge is attached can clip down to form a sort of ad hoc cap which in my experience stays up surprisingly well. The inside has a few marks and stains, but that's to be expected from military surplus in general. My only complaints would be that it picks up fluff rather easily and the faux fur flaps can make your ears get a bit itchy after wearing for extended periods of time. But other than that, if you're looking for a small little piece of history that keeps your head warm, 10/10 would recommend.
