The German Army has some of the best designed equipment with much of it being original. There are however times when they recognize existing designs being superior for tasks and adopt them. This German Winter Cap is an example of a design that was pre-existing and standardized by the German Army for use as there was no improvements to be made on this proven design.

Some refer to this style of hat as being an "Elmer Fudd" hat, as the cartoon was the first exposure of this style of hat for many people. While this winter cap and Elmer's are of a similar design, these caps are much cooler. Starting with the Flecktarn camouflage pattern that is available for a more military look, and the use of modern materials for a more streamlined profile these winter caps are just what you've wanted for winter. Stylish, warm, and comfortable in all sizes.

Great Value & Quality

I wore a size 7 3/4 Patrol Cap, head size 62cm and the medium size fits just fine. Great quality and warm. Wind doesn't cut and water seems to bead off nice. Mine seems to have been produced in 1995 and appears un-issued. A great piece of head gear made by Albert Kempf GmbH
Great value; order 1 size up

I wear a USA 7 1/4. The L or XL in these hats does not fit. Ordered the 2XL, fits perfectly. I will only wear it flaps and brim down, otherwise it defeats the purpose (cold-weather hat). Velcro closes the side flaps under the chin; soft fleece lining covers the ears and cheeks. The skullcap portion is not fleece-lined. I expect it is perfect for windy conditions down into the teens or single digits moving around, clearing snow and outdoor winter activities (temps lower than that, or if just sitting as in a hunting blind: get a fur Ushanka). Great value for the money, looks good, recommended purchase.

Love this hat! It's warm and comfortable. I ordered the 2xl not sure how big my head is but it leaves me a little room. I would normally order xl but according to the other reviews it runs small and I believe that to be true. I would purchase again.
its a hat, its legit, and it works as intended.

This is probably the most over engineered hat I’ve ever owned and you really can’t go bad at the price.

Nice hat, Fits quite snug, conforms to the shape of your head. One review said it was also used under a helmet as a cold weather liner.
A good value. The fit deducts style points.
Good value - Order one size larger

Order one size larger. I'm a 7.5 in most hats, ordered a large, and this is a little tight even with the flaps down. With the flaps up, it can be adjusted a little to a point depending on how tight you secure the Velcro.
Warm ,good value

After unpacking It went to work as I shovelled snow. The size 60 fit my 71/2 head snuggly and I was able to use the ear flaps. Elmer Fudd never looked better or was warmer.
