The Dutch Camouflage Winter Cap is a camo pattern trapper style hat. Most people associate this style of hat with the cartoon character Elmer Fudd, but virtually every fighting force in the world utilizes this style of hat for winter weather. The warmth and protection the trapper hat provides for soldiers is second to none, and civilians everywhere flock to this type of hat and have done so for decades.

Normally wear a Medium but ordered a Large and it fit well. Will definitely keep your ears warm and a great deal for under 5 bucks!
Great hat, I wear a size 7 1/2 US, and this hat fits snug.
No seriously, I have a big head. I ordered a large, and it barely fits. I definitely would not wear it regularly, as its pretty tight. Given that, its definitely warm and has some nice features. You can pull the ear guards up if you need, or strap them below your chin. The brim can be pulled down or stored up -- I'm assuming for rife use. All in all a good hat for the cold and a good value.
Purchased one of these from a different site years ago (for a higher price, I might add). It's a nice hat. with some notable features:
1. The pattern is the Dutch version of DPM, which is a bit different from British DPM, with more yellow. It works well in temperate forest environment.
2. The bill of the hat flips up, allowing you an unobstructed view. Or, you can leave it down (especially useful if you are using a parka with hood).
3. The ear flaps are nice and warm, but of course muffle sound. If you don't want to use them, you can secure them over the top of the cap.
All in all, a nice cap.
