The Swiss Wool Overseas Cap is an all wool winter cap from the Swiss Armed Forces. Sometimes referred to as a garrison cap, this overseas cap is far more than just a common garrison cap. Should you like to call it a garrison cap, it would be the Transformers version of a garrison cap, as it can be unfolded to become a full winter hat complete with chin and neck protection.

Wth the Swiss Armed Forces responsible for patrol and protection in winter months and in Alpine heights, the gear used needs to be superior. This overseas cap is quite superior in that it is made from wool and is versatile enough to be made into a full winter hat when required. Many military forces use garrison caps that while covering the head provide no protection from the elements. The Swiss Armed Forces realized this was a perfect opportunity to make the very best garrison cap possible and they succeeded with this overseas cap.

  • Authentic Swiss Army Issued Cap

Review by Joe
Bought on a whim, price factor, good wool, know your metric hat size and get a versible cap that you can covert on the fly, look smart and Swiss quality. Am a size 7-3/4 US metric size 60,size 59avail, fit fine with a proper hair cut. Had a WW1 wool campaign hat as kid from a survivor in the family, itchy but didn't realize the history behind it ,affordable replacement Thanks!

Too small
Review by Steven
Great looking hat. Convertible feature is nice. Mine appears to be new. Unfortunately its too small for my "normal" sized head. Fits over my face when unfolded so not a total loss.

Mine were used.
Review by sean
Great caps, but both were in used condition with the persons name written on the label.

Very comfortable and keep my head warm. I like the pull down hood as well. it will keep your neck and ears warm, and your mouth as well.

I dont really mind that they were used since they were so cheap, but I just wanted possible buyers to know what they were getting in to.

A Great Utility Hat!
Review by James
This appears to be in excellent condition and never issued! This is a great compact design and works in great for being prepared......just in case. The Hat depicted on the display head does not do it justice, it actually looks much better on a real head when the right size is selected. My only regret is that I did not order two.
