German Flecktarn Field Cap – Authentic Bundeswehr-Issued German Field Cap
German Flecktarn Field Cap
For whatever reason, military-style field caps seem to have gained a great deal of popularity in recent years. And there is no better field cap than the German Flecktarn field cap, especially when they are in the condition that this lot happens to be. Each unissued German Flecktarn field caps is a German military surplus item and is ideal for paintball and airsoft players, collectors or plain old casual wear.
Each German Flecktarn field cap is a like-new unissued cap, meaning they are unused and in excellent condition ready to begin their service lives however you see fit.
The German Flecktarn field cap is constructed entirely from a cotton/polyester blend (80 percent/20 percent) and includes reinforced military-grade stitching on the short bill and through the dual-layer sweatband.
One final interested aspect regarding the German Flecktarn field cap is the inclusion of its NATO Stock Number on the interior tag. An NSN is a 13-digit numerical code that identifies all standardized materials of supply that are recognized by NATO countries. The NSN for the German Flecktarn field cap is 8415-12-322-4191, which identifies it as a tarnmuster muetze, or what translates loosely to "camouflage cap." The "8165" identifies it as a piece of special purpose clothing while the "12" signifies that the piece is from Germany. The remaining digits signify its item number.
Got one knowing it would be too big for me, but I can always tighten it up. Great price on this, and it appears to be factory new, so nothing but pristine new flecktarn camo that I've grown fond of. Great price to boot.
Great hat and super price.
I was lucky and got 2 hats. It would be nice if they sorted them out and let you choose between 62 and 63. I wear a 60-61 and 62 is really too big for me as it will fly off if I have the window down when driving.
other than that they are in perfect unissued condition, colors are great and unfaded, no weird smell, nothing. and they are like 1/3 the price of a baseball cap made in china, whats not to love?
buy one, or buy 3, you wont regret it.
German Style at a affordable price
Great cap for hunting and wearing around town.
Fantastic Cap, and it fits!
Its not easy to fit a hat to my noggin. I almost paid about $30 on that big online auction site for one. I got two for less than $20! And these wont fall apart in the wash. I have had used ones and they were still going strong. One of the used ones sat on the dash of a truck in the full sun, and hardly faded at all. This is a tough, well made top cover! To find these in unissued condition ist wunderbar!!!
An excellent hat if you've got a big head on your shoulders
I wear a 7 1/2 (for my issued patrol cap at least), and this hat was quite simply too large for my cranium. 7 3/4, maybe 7 7/8 will be more adequate for one to don it. The hat was brand new though, and will be a great addition to my collection of German military gear. I recommend this piece to one with a big head.
Mine is unissued, no off smells This is a quality hat
Excellent quality, but you must have melon head for XL
You'll need to wear a size 7 3/4 (head circumference 24 3/8 inches) for the XL/Size 62cm to fit. I wear a 7 1/2 (60cm) and the XL cap is far too loose. I expected it would shrink in the dryer, given the 80% cotton fabric, but the German quality precluded that. The 'depth' of the cap is shallow, about 2 inches in back, so it needs to fit snugly for it to stay on your head. The cap comes to a slight peak in the front, a little like a Marine Corps utility cover. The quality is as good as, or slightly better than, US issue caps and hats. I'll keep it for when I acquire some tailoring skills, or my head expands.
Fits me great
Mine is unissued, no off storage smells. I was delighted to find the XL size fit my (not normally swelled) head, albeit a little snug. My hat size is 7 5/8.
Great cap,,,,Just way too big for my punkin,,,,Hey Honey!!!!!!
If you buy this hat buy the matching coat too!
Almost the same style that was used by the Germans in WWII.
The hat was 100% new . I think the hat runs a little bit big but I'm willing to pay to have it fitted. If you have a small to medium size head don't buy it. Great bang for the buck!
New hat with tags still on it.
Review by1st CIV DIV
This hat came new with the Made in Germany STURM sticker still on the brim. The hat will fit someone with around a 7 3/4 hat size. Other stores have old wore out hats for way more than this. Thanks, Keep Shooting.
high quality and match's the rest of my flak
The hat comes at a very good price. The flecktarn goes well if you have any German surplus gear. Its a nice hat to keep in the car for unexpectedly sunny days.
Goes great with other flecktarn gear
I bought one of these to go with my flecktarn field jacket. Looks pretty cool, and helps conceal my (big) head when playing airsoft.
Completes the set.
This is a quality hat for its style. The brim is soft and does not hold a solid shape very well, but that's not its purpose.
I may order another for my friend, as the price is great and they look great.
A perfect addition to your collection
If you own the German flecktarn jacket, this cap is a must. It completes the uniform, and it is a nice hat on its own, too.
