    Toronto Gal -- so what type of Ushanka do you have?

    I threw a tickler out on another post but you must not have seen it.

    Anyway, as we are now approaching winter, I am starting to gather up my warm clothing.
    I guess about 5-6 years ago, I stumbled onto a Russian ushanka somewhere and immediately realized that this is probably the warmest headgear in the world. I went home and ordered two -- one for me and one for my wife.

    As I am an old submariner, I just had to have the same hat as Captain Ramius in "Hunt For Red October"

    So, this is the hat I bought --it is made from genuine mouton

    Here is the one I bought for my wife, made from rabbit

    Now I know that any self respecting Cossack is going to own one of these -- so what kind do you have? (I am thinking you probably have several -- perhaps mink or even silver fox?)

    haha Sorry I missed your post

    I have one made from sheep, identical to this one, minus the revolutionary star haha


    I still prefer the Kozak sheep Winter hats but everyone makes fun of me when I wear one and Toronto is not cold enough to wear one, here's a hat similar to what I like wearing when I visit Omsk (Siberian city with lots of family members).

    Here's an example of the hats our men wear back home, mostly sheep-skin but some from bear.

    My wife also has a nice Alpaca hat that looks exactly like this image:

    She wears this hat during cold but not bitter cold weather. When it gets bitter cold, we switch to the Ushankas.

    Anyway, Alpaca wool is amazing. Used also for really nice sweaters, mittens, socks, etc.

    Kozaks traditionally wear sheep, lots of sheep-hearding in my culture

    Toronto Gal -- so what type of Ushanka do you have?-index.png Here is the closest thing I have to a Ushanka hat, it is rabbit fur lined and called the Mad Bomber. Bought from Cabela's a year or two ago.
