This hat is great. Very warm and offers good protection from the elements. Like the visor, keeps the snow off my glasses when I am walking to work.
This isn't what you want for a historically accurate impression, that is all I will say.
Do your research.
This is a great hat, however, for personal, general use. It will keep you warm and withstand abuse!
I got this cap and I have to say first off the price is worth it. the quality of the hat is good and it is comfortable on my head. I got the size 59. I think I will be getting another one.
