I couldn’t be happier with the hat. The customer service was impeccable.
Perfect fit. Good quality
So far I've ordered two ushankas, this one as a gift, and a Russian Police style for myself. Both I have been extremely happy with, they are so well made, just picking them up you can feel the quality of workmanship. Just as well, the insignia that gets sent with them is very good quality too. Definitely some of the best purchases I have ever made.
I purchased like 3 or 4 of these over the years as gifts. My first one was awesome, the Ushanka store has been easy to work with and reliable. I live in a pretty darn cold place - these hats are great - especially in cold wet conditions - or wet snow. The guys I gave these too - still LOVE their hats and wear them with pride - way better than the cheap ones made elsewhere!
I went with buying a size up like the reviews recommended. The ushanka fits very slightly loose but will probably be more snug once exposed to the elements. The hat is larger than expected and is of a sturdy, rugged construction, with nice leather. I am going to use it for skiing this winter and I have no doubt that it will do the task well!
Love the hat. It is a perfect fit and a quality product. Thank you very much.
I bought a size 56 because I have a 22 inch head. If your buying leather go one size up because these babies are tight.
Dimitry helped me out and was so loving and accommodating of me and my issue. I love this company.
Item was as described and it fit perfectly. Gotta love the smell of the leather.
I got exactly what I wanted. Glorious People's Republic Ushanka. Never again will I worry about frozen gulag.
I stumbled upon this site about a week ago, and haven't been disappointed. The hat arrived a lot faster than I expected; in less than a week. The fur and leather feel quality and I am confident this will stand up to the Minnesotan winter.
High-quality construction and material, fur is soft to touch and if fits perfectly.
These are the best quality and genuine Ushanka hats in the US Market. I bought 2 of these. The first bought is over 4 years old looks just as new after being used on brutal northeastern and rainy days. The leather and materials are top quality, they will keep your Head, ears, face warm.
A great experience. Good quality and delivered promptly
Excellent quality. Delivered promptly
It's a must for any officer, trooper or deputy. Great hat. Keeps you very warm.
Wonderfully soft fur. The leather is not stiff and it is very warm. If you are looking for an Ushanka that keeps you warm for ever then you should get one of these. The shipping was extremely fast (it got up here in Canada in about a week or so) over all I highly recommend this hat and it deserves 5 stars
This hat is crazy soft, super warming, and the leather top keeps any rain or snow out. Highly recommend this version.
I have owned several ushanka. This one is outstanding. I have had this one for 2 winters now. Fit, finish, color, warmth, texture, and whatever metric you can measure by is excellent. This is one of those items where you ask yourself, "How did I make it through life without it?" If you bought a cheaper ushanka, and you think that all ushanka are crap, then buy this one. It will teach you how wrong you were. I have talked 2 people into purchasing, and they love them. As far as sizing, I followed their instructions exactly, and bam! Perfect! Not paid to mention how great the hat makers in Belarus are. I will be purchasing another.
As I am spending Christmas behind the Iron Curtain I decided I'd better get some serious winter headgear. Came across this website by chance - thank God I did! Was very impressed with both the variety of ushankas on offer - and the price. I almost thought it had to be too good to be true! Based on the level of satisfaction in customer reviews I decided to make a purchase. Went for the 'Hunting for Red October' navy officer's ushanka. My parcel took almost 2 weeks to arrive in Ireland, but I was able to track its delivery with USPS. It was so worth the wait. The quality of the workmanship is very impressive. Well done to all involved - great product, great service, great price!
I was able from other country to order for my dear friend a present. The package came very fast about 2-4 days. Package didnt have selected insignia, but after emailed Company for missing insignia they were very friendly and sended the selected ignisia that was missing. My friend was very happy with hat , fits 100% perfect, very warm and smooth.
Perfect fit and great warmth. I'm glad I now own one of these hats
This that is as shown in the pictures. It is very warm and in my opinion stylish. The quality is simply outstanding. The fur is so soft some have wondered whether it was mink. I was very sceptical of the very high ratings on this hat. Now I understand. This is five star all the way. It is worth the money. Fast delivery.
I am amazed at how much difference this hat makes. They say 50 % of the heat in your body is lost through your head and this hat stops much of that. I DID buy this to protect my ears and it does that and more. Well made
My ushanka was arriving like 20 minutes ago and i have to say i really really like it a lot the material feels really nice and smooth, everything is well made and keeps ur head verry warm i was ordering my ushanka from germany and i had no shipping problems thats what i call a really good service thank you.
No complaints about the Ushanka or the service - the package took a while to reach me, being sent via the Middle East for some reason.
I Love my black leather Naval Officer Mouton hat. It arrived in Houston two days after I ordered it. I don't get the opportunity to wear it very often in the Houston, Tx weather, but when a cold front does come through and I wear it, I get comments from people everywhere I go. I tell people it is the hat that the sub commander wore in the movie, "Hunt For Red October" and they all want to know how they can get one, too.
It's a perfect fit and keeps my head very, very warm.
Good and reliable.
Wonderful seller and excellent product. Will do business again. A+++++
Very easy to deal with. Any problems they respond to quickly.
This a superb Ushanka.Well made. Handsome.Quick ship.Tnk U for all!! A++
Excellent quality and very fast delivery. Thank you again.
This is my second Ushanka hat from Ushanka.com. My other hat is the Rabbit Fur Ushanka. I can't decide which I like best. They are both fantastic hats. The workmanship is top quality, and they both feel so soft and warm. The mouton wool is soft and smooth and the rabbit fur is fluffy and soft.
My head is large, 63 cm,and it is not easy finding hats that fit my large head. These hats fit perfectly.
I ordered the mouton wool hat on-line on New Years Day, a holiday, and the hat still arrived just 3 days later. What great service!
I live in Houston, Tx where most hats are either cowboy hats or baseball caps. I get compliments on the Ushanka hats every time I wear them. My only regret is that it does not get cold enough to wear them except for brief periods when cold fronts come through this part of Texas.
Yes, I highly recommend the Ushanka.com hats for their great service and hat quality.
Just as the other reviews, order a size or 2 larger, as when the ears are down the hat is somewhat tighter. I took the advice and I'm completely satisfied. The hat is VERY good at keeping you warm. Also, the leather top is softer than it appears in the photos. This is a good thing. It's supple, yet durable. I was concerned it would be stiff and plastic feeling. I'd recommend without hesitation
I needed a warm hat for the colder months we have up here in northern England and the "Naval officer mouton ushanka - genuine leather top" does the job perfectly!
I ordered the size 61 after checking the sizing information provided on this website and I can now say it was spot on, perfect fit!
I did have a small shipping problem with USPS but the staff on ushanka.com were very helpful and my order arrived in within a week.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase and I would highly recommend both ushanka.com and my new ushanka I bought to family and friends.
This was my first purchase from Ushanka Company. The hat arrived very quickly. I found it to be made of quality materials. I also found the workmanship was also first rate. I used paypal and it worked fine. I would caution the buyer to measure carefully your hat size. Mine worked out fine but i can see how there might be sizing issue if you are not careful.
All in all I would highly recommend this product and the company
Great seller and a really good product, exactly as described A+++++ Recommended!
Terrific seller. Perfect description and sizing, magnificent hat! A+ five stars
I purchased the naval officers' ushanka with black leather and mouton. It arrived in two days, which is extremely fast handling and shipping.
I carefully measured my head several times and came up with a measurement of 24 inches, which equates to a 7 5/8 hat size. The sizing chart indicated that I should order a size 61 ushanka, but I heeded the advice of other reviewers and ordered a size 63 hat, which fits perfectly whether the ear flaps are up or down.
The naval officer's leather ushanka is beautiful, and extremely well made. The leather is pliable, yet substantial and the mouton is plush and warm. The interior of the hat is comfortable feels fantastic to the point that I can't wait to find an excuse to put it on. I've had ushanka hats from other makers, and they don't compare to this hat in any way. If you are unsure as to whether your should spend $79 on the naval officers' leather ushanka, order it with confidence and wear it with pride. Just be sure to size up a cm or two.
AWESOME!!! I get compliments all the time...people say it looks luxurious!!
I ordered the genuine sheepskin ushanka in black, and I am very pleased. It fits perfectly and looks awesome, I get compliments whenever I wear it. Very warm and very high quality construction. Keep up the good work ushanka.com
Item was too small however after following the online stretching directions it fits perfectly. I contacted seller since initially I intended to return it and never recd a response.
Thanks guys for your great service all my hats I got off you guys are awesome this ones my favorite though again thank you!
Great Headgear! Delivery was prompt and the hat was spectacular. The hat was soft but held it's shape well. Only negative is that at the moment is that it is a bit of a tight fit but that is nothing a little bit of stretching won't fix. I am very happy to have this beautiful hat
I decided I wanted an Ushanka and every forum and review pointed me to Ushanka.com and I couldn't be happier with this hat. I looked at the military hats and settled on the mouton/ leather Navy officer hat since Red October was an awesome movie! The quality and comfort is incredible! Very fast shipping as well. Thank you so much I will order more of these from you in the future.
What an awesome hat! Soft fur, warm, and just looks great. I bought this hat and thought it would be something cool to have, but when I got it, I found myself wearing it often in the cold. The "Marko Ramius" hat is the best I've owned, and will be using this website in the future again! Thanks!!
I ordered 2 hats and 3 insignia badges, and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the items. The hats are solidly built and are relatively heavy, which I think is great. The mouton is very soft and feels great against my face. I can't wait for winter to unleash it's wrath so I can put them to the test. The insignia look great as well and compliment the hats. Also, the order was shipped within one business day and I received free one day shipping, something that has never happened before.
I'll definitely order again.
I bought a mouton military ushanka for my work in the cold and often wet conditions on airports, which are wide open and very cold in Colorado winter, and it was the best piece of clothing I owned for the weather. Mine was stolen from my car, so I just now ordered an identical replacement. Worth every penny I need to give to have one of these.
Today I received the hat ordered for my Son; sufficed to say the whole transaction, the product itself and the service received has been excellent.
Its winter in Australia now albeit not as extreme as New York. We do get snow however.
Thanks again and now that the wife's seen the item there will be another order placed shortly
The hat exceeded my expectations!! It is made very well and high quality !!
Super fast shipper. Item arrived a week earlier than expected. Amazing.
I ordered this hat by mistake and then reordered the correct hat. They gave me the refund quickly! I loved it. We now have the correct hat now.
Hi. I just wanted to thank you for responding to my order. I ordered my ushanka Friday night 12/4 (late in the evening) and I received it yesterday Monday 12/7 noon. I was very impressed, not only with the service; but also with the hat itself. I love it!!! My son wants one too. So I will be placing another order in the next few days. Thanks again and I'll make sure to recommend you guys around. Happy holidays.
Wonderful hat! Great quality and arrived quickly. Will do business with again.
