Swedish Army Field Cap
The Swedish Army M59 Field Cap is an authentic part of the Swedish Army M59 series uniform. These olive drab field caps are really nice, very much like the vast majority of Swedish army surplus gear. Looking at the specifications, they are made from a cotton blend material and most appear to have never been issued. The extra wide brim on these field caps will be great for keeping the sun out of your eyes.
The Swedish M59 was the standard olive green uniform in use by the Swedish Army up until the 1990s. This uniform was seen all over Sweden and in joint exercises where Sweden participated with NATO. The use of an olive drab green uniform is unique as most countries utilized some form of a camouflage pattern on their army uniforms, with Sweden and Austria being two that standardized with olive green.
Field caps like the M59 from Sweden have been issued in massive numbers to soldiers since the early days of the Second World War. Recognizing the value on a military hat for keeping the sun out of your eyes, completing a uniform look, and providing resistance to the wind field caps have become an essential uniform component. The Swedish army produced the M59 for all of these reasons and constructed it to the legendary Swedish military standards for excellence. You'll find this field cap uses quality materials and is perfect down to the last stitch sewn.
