Had some problems with the mailing (got stuck at customs in Portugal TWICE) but they kept in touch with me, very quick answers and solutions, amazing costumer support.
This ushanka fits me perfectly.
The blue fur is such a deep, unusual shade in the best way, almost like a gem.
A sapphire, perhaps?
The gray accents and laces compliment the blue nicely.
The fur is soft and warm; and as expected with the Militsia model I suppose, the quilting pattern on the inside of the hat is civilian pattern and not military pattern. Same feel to both materials however, meaning I can reasonably figure that the inside materials are still the same despite the different quilting. Overall a highly nice and interesting hat, mysterious even. This will go extremely well with my uniform. Thanks again for a soft and Slavic hat for life, Ushanka Company.
This ushanka is a beautiful and an unusual shade of blue. Very old world. Very Russian. Very cool. My advice? Buy it. My second ushanka from a really good company.
The color advertising in picture might not be the same shade of blue. (Maybe because mine is made in Belarus) Regardless it is made exceptionally well, and made of real materials.
The initial model I selected was not in stock, they personally checked inventory in the warehouse and promptly let me know my options. Although disappointed the blue mouton was not in stock, I went with a black mouton model. It arrived less than a week after my order. The hat is extremely comfortable and the craftsmanship is superb. I can only imagine this hat will last for years. I will most likely be placing another order. Thank you!
I got the gray one for myself and the blue ones for my two sons. All are great quality hats and very warm.
The hat itself is perfect, plain and simple. The fit and function, also perfect. My only complaint is with hat badge, it was smaller than I was anticipating, I thought it would be more prominent than it is. But, it is what it is and I very happy with what I had purchased. If I needed another one, I will be shopping here.
The hat I received was of excellent quality. I have bought from here before and I have never been disappointed. The shipping was fast, communication was easy with Customer Service, and the packaging the hat was shipped in was very protective. All in all, very happy.
It's a great quality hat and it fits perfectly. I went with a size up and it fits nicely. Very fast shipping. This is my second hat from this site and I will probably buy more in the future.
Fitting instructions were perfect.
The quality is outstanding, and the final product was amazing. I am very happy with my ushanka and plan to order a couple more.
Service from the company was excellent.....shipped the next day.
Excellent hat . Very warm . Superb customer service from Dmitry. Will definitely recommend.
High quality hat, very comfortable to wear and warm. It shipped very fast and Dmitry was very helpful in answering questions.
Very cool hat and one that’s a must have if you want your head warm for the winters!!! I’m lovin’ it!!! The price is totally worth it, no regrets buying it!!!
This ushanka is definitely the most comfortable ushanka I have ever worn. The "fur" on it is extremely soft, the flaps cover all of the side of my head, and most importantly, it is very warm. Another note I would like to add is that the customer service is very fast and was very helpful when I had a question about the color of the wool.
I have wanted a ushanka for a long while and ushanka.com had just what I wanted! It shipped in just a few days and it fit so well and was so soft. Ushanka.com certainly offers some of the best customer service as brands their size. Thank you!
I’ve worn ushankas my entire life, the gray-blue militsia color is perfect. High-quality materials, It keeps me warm outside and during my kid’s hockey games.
The Ushanka fur was REALLY soft, I've actually used it as a pillow when I take naps at work haha! But it keeps me warm, and I'm really happy with my purchase and the high level of customer service. I didn't think y'all would send it out so quick but you did! I can't wait till the sheepskin mittens (lobster claw) come back in stock in my size. I'm definitely getting those.
Got this for my husband for Christmas & he has been wearing it daily since then ! Very good quality, looks great & he says it is good & warm. Color is just right.
Silly Capitalists believe that they can make $0.50 Ushanka from band-aids and hobo beard leavings and no one will notice? Blyad, I say! My Comrade was duped into buying such wicked garbage, and wouldn't you know, within a week he is saying tschort like, "Maybe Capitalism isn't so bad, I mean, great economics make great countries." "Debil", I told him, as I knocked off his ratty filth and replaced it with a Militsia Ushanka, "you cannot override liver functions if you are American!" Three shots of Ruski Standard and half a cheburek later, and he is back to normal. Thank you for your help, Ushanka.com! Your products and accessories are truly slav!
Sturdy build quality, great color, and impervious to the elements.
When I was nine I received the militsia blue ushanka from ushanka.com (this website) for Christmas, ten years later I am a 19 year old man and I bought another because I needed enough sizes up to warrant getting another,and received it today. My ushanka from when I was a boy is still in perfect condition after 10 winters of keeping me warm through the bitter cold weather, I think its safe to say Ushanka.com sells quality authentic Slavic headwear that will last you through whatever you throw its way, while keeping you warm for years to come. Thank you Ushanka.com, for keeping me warm all these years. Thank you for the amazing product.
When I first got my Ushanka, it was roughly two sizes too small. However, not only did Ushanka.com give me the option to send it back, but they also gave me a tutorial on stretching it out myself! When my Ushanka was completed, I hesitatingly put it on, and was introduced to a whole new world; I usurped the Slav King himself, squatting atop a throne of AK's. I made and feasted upon Chebureki, and drank an entire bottle of Vodka, all in one sitting. 10/10 made me wipe out my entire western spy family
Love my Ushanka. Great quality, comfort and superb style. Wore it back to Chicago for the super cold Holidays and it was so warm and stylish. Plus, just TONS of compliments. Great service too: fast shipping, etc. Highly recommend Ushanka.com. Thank You
Thanks for the order, the hats are lovely, good quality and warm enough. Would purchase again.
Great Company.... With the Best Ushanka s
Love it keeps your head warm and cozy so to speak and just works great. Some of my buddies give me a little crap about the fact it’s Russian but when their ears are frozen and mine are fine I just laugh at them.
Fast delivery, excellent packaging, and after-sale support was super fast and concise.
Excellent service and excellent product. I am in Mexico and had no problem with the product arriving promptly and in excellent condition. I definitely recommend purchasing from Ushanka with confidence.
I think I have bought about ten different ushankas from Dmitry over the past few years (only three for myself) and they are always well received by people.
Where I live, it drops to -55C, so during winter, they are required headgear when waiting for the bus ... and the rest of the time when outside.
I can highly recommend Ushanka.com ...
My husband gave me this Ushanka as a present because I'm very sensitive from the cold and this completely solves my problem! It gets so warm in a matter of minutes, it looks great and proudly made in beautiful Russia.
Such a great product and service.
I will and definitely recommend this website and products!
The sheepskin mouton is very warm -- neck is never cold. The product is well made and very sexy -- I'm always getting compliments from the ladies and my mother. I would buy this product many times over! Thank you Ushanka.com!!!
Absolutely wonderful for the cold. I used it on a few trips to Norway during the winter and found I occasionally had to remove it in the "heat" of 20 - 30 degrees!
I would suggest getting a size larger than your head's measurement so that you can avoid getting a hat too tight - there isn't *too* much room for expansion.
It is important to note that the ear-flaps are held together by cords and not a buckle or clasp - this can be an issue (but not impossible!) when trying to tie it with heavy gloves.
I found it most comfortable with the ear-flaps folded halfway down, connected in the back. It is very easy to put on quickly and it gives you a little more room to move your head around.
All in all this is stellar quality,you get great customer service and absolutely fantastic value. IT IS WORTH IT!
This is a excellent ushanka! Feels well made, warm and cozy. Also is a wonder blue hue. The insignias that came with it seem very well made. The fit is perfect. I will be looking forward to a black one for work very soon.
arrived promptly, it was as described
Just got the MVD in the mail. I love this hat. It's warm and fits well, I can't wait to start using it. Fast service, great products and tons of helpful information to make it fit correctly. Thanks!
This is by far the best ushanka I own, love the blue. Really comfortable and is a perfect fit. Delivery was very fast.
FAST SHIPPING 5 STAR SERVICE......THANK YOU
Great transaction! Beautiful and qualityful hat!
As another cold Bavarian winter approaches, I decided to get myself a sturdy warm hat. I remember seeing Soviet military ushankas being sold in east Berlin and i decided to finally get myself one. Even though Russia is much closer than America, the item was here within one week of ordering and the customer service was fantastic. The hat is warm, sturdy, fits perfectly, and is stylish with the Russian eagle on the front.
... now if i could just win back my Russian ex-girlfriend ;)
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!!!
The time between my order and delivery was very short and I am grateful for the sizing help given by ushanka team. The police ushanka I ordered came as described and fits perfectly. The sheepskin material is of high quality and feels nice to the touch. Will definitely consider buying from this site again. Overall experience 5/5!
Lovely soft warm hat, promptly shipped. Arrived way ahead of due date.
I just got my ushanka today. It is very nice and I am pleased with it a lot. This is the best costumer service and shipping experience that I have had. Thanks!
It has been a while since I have purchased a blue wool Soviet ushanka and there was a mix up with the badges and Dmitry gave me the correct one. Thank you very much for an authentic product. I will highly recommend you to a friend.
Got an ushanka militsia, the mouton wool is very soft. This is a warm hat, and it fits well. Shipping was quick. I give it ***** stars!
Just received the Ushanka today
This is some seriously well made hat the skin is well made and even smell as it should it makes me remember the one I had when I was a child. I am truly satisfied with it. Even my wife says that when she was a kid in China the good Ushanka’s were never made locally they always came from Russia.
Thank you so much.
Like everyone else in the world, I'm in am in no mood for headaches, hassles, and bad products. They had my ushanka in the mail next day. Can't imagine anyone else selling a better military ushanka than the one I got; great stiching and quality wool and fur. Received 2 USSR pins. If in need of another ushanka, zero thought, I'm sticking with them.
This hat is great, just like what we saw on the website - thanks!
