The East German National Police issued a wide variety of equipment to officers. One of the more important pieces of equipment would be uniforms and this Vopo winter hat was an essential part of the Volkspolizei winter uniform. With virtually every Warsaw Pact nation using this style of winter hat, the Vopo naturally selected it for their standard issue winter hat.

This style of winter hat has proven to be one of the best designed for keeping your head warm in the cold. You will find commercial versions of it for sale in stores and as noted above many military forces used the same style for their soldiers. With this winter hat being from the former East Germany, it holds more appeal than most as the country that produced it no longer exists. The events that surrounded both the founding and collapse of East Germany were important to world history and the Cold War certainly was front-and-center in East Germany. So when considering this hat, do not look at it as merely a winter hat it is also a relic from history that can be worn every day.

Good, practical head gear
When it's 10 below zero and I'm shoveling snow, I'm not concerned about impressing anyone with my fashion choices. This thing looks like my ears will stay nice and warm. Review by DAN (Posted on 8/26/2016)
Great warm hat
This classic cold weather hat is great. Fit is true to size and it retains so much head heat. Instantly noticed my head was heating up while inside with the AC on. Review by Erick (Posted on 8/1/2016)
Not much to say - solid hat, buy today!
A nice and unfashionable hat! Very functional, just don't put it through the wash - the fuzzy side will pill up and get very sad.
Warm and comfy, can't go wrong!
