Recently, when I needed a cold weather hat, I visited several local outdoors stores, but didn't see any hats that really impressed me.
I asked myself "Who would be the experts in making really warm hats?" Then it hit me! The Russians! Having visited Russia as a tourist during the winter some 30 years ago, I remembered how great their hats are.
I received my Yushanka today. Wow! It is the real deal! I bought the Russian police (militsia) MVD blue mouton ushanka hat. It is exactly as advertised. Shipping was prompt. Quality is excellent. Price is fair. What more could you ask!
Be sure to read the instructions on sizing so that you order the right size. I recommend measuring in centimeters, as that's how the hats are sized.
I am looking forward to some really cold weather! This hat is up for it. This hat makes the cheap Chinese-made junk sold to American stores look pathetic.
This is the real deal! Thanks!!!
