I love the hat
and your helpful suggestions on how to slightly shrink the hat. On time and in great shape.
Tom, Muncie, INJuly 30th, 2020
Amazing Ushanka and even better customer service
Best company and customer service I’ve ever dealt with, fast email replies and answered every question I had. The hat
itself is super warm and really durable , you simply can’t get cold while wearing it. Overall it was the best experience I’ve ever had with a company.
Abdullah, AbuDhabi, UAEJune 27th, 2020
Better than I expectedThis was a gift
for my son.
He loves it! Online ordering was easy, and it arrived in a timely manner. No problems...I would order again from ushanka.com.

Excellent Product & Service
This hat was my second ushanka
. Being a wool frame instead of the all sheepskin like my first one, it is more comfortable when the temperatures rise a bit.
These hats are very well made and will hold up to frequent use for a long time (as in years). The service from the seller is first rate - have a question, e-mail them and you usually will have an answer in 24 hours or less. Shipping is also quick, usually a three to four day turn around from order to receiving it.
If you are looking for quality cold weather products made by people who deal with long winters and cold, this is your store!

My husband loves his ushanka !!
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.
Susan, Nescopeck PAJanuary 2nd, 2020
The quality and workmanship are superb. I can't believe they are selling this
for only $60.00. I have always wanted an all fur Ushanka of this quality, but could justify spending $200 for one. Whenever I wear it I always get compliments.
Definitely add .4 inch to the hat size; I did and ordered the size 64 and it fit perfectly.
Michael Walker, Aurora, CO, USDecember 14th, 2019
Russian Navy Ushanka - wonderfully warm, and so is the service!
Only recently did I learn that these hats are called "Ushanka" in Russia and the surrounding region. I didn't really ever stop to think about what country and what period of time they came from, I just knew I wanted one! At almost 60, I almost tripped over ushanka.com, and I'm glad I did. It's clear staying warm the old fashioned way - efficient stoves and warm clothing - is part of the heritage here. I never get cold with this hat and haven't even had a chance yet to need the flaps down. But playing with it, not only does it cover your ears but the wool or fur is designed to wrap around your neck to your beard. 40% of your body heat goes out your top, so a warm head can equal survival - or perhaps evade getting sick.
The product is just part of the experience - but Dmitry provides hospitable customer service we all miss these days. Noteworthy for running a small business. Hats and Business get a strong recommendation from me!
P.S. I've put an American shield of similar design to the Soviet one on mine - it turns heads!

In my case, the owner was quick to answer my question, the item was shipped the next morning, and it arrived quickly—2 days later. The product itself appears to be very good quality and fits well (just follow the directions on how to measure your size on the website and be sure to add that extra cm, as instructed, and to go add another cm if the resulting measurement is in between sizes. I worried the hat might be a bit big if I did this but it fits really well). It seems like it will be nice and warm but I haven’t yet had an occasion to really test that out. I also recommend that you purchase this because it appears to be authentic and isn’t yet another cheap product of China. I also recommend buying directly from the seller instead of on Amazon. It will save you money and it supports what I assume is a relatively small business.

was delivered quickly, is well made, and is very comfortable! The insignia came detached in a small paper envelope. For those who might be worried about getting the hat size exactly right, the instructions came with information on how to adapt its size if you were slightly off in your measurement.
Steven, St. Louis, Missouri, USANovember 10th, 2019
Authentic quality just like I remember in the motherland. Had to exchange because I ordered wrong size. The service was prompt and respectful. I'm buying more ushankas for everybody!
Pierre, Minneapolis, MNOctober 15th, 2019
Comfortable and fits perfect.The ushanka
fit just right using their sizing chart recommendations. It is a thick and rugged ushanka that I can't wait to use come winter. Shipping was fast and I would recommend ordering from here.
Jacob, OhioOctober 11th, 2019
I received my Severomorsk Military Base White Sheepskin Ushanka
and emblems very quickly. The hat fits and it arrived in great shape. I really like the emblems that were sent with the hat and I am very impressed with Ushanka Company's service, website, and with my hat that arrived. Thank You!
Matthew, Fairmont, WVOctober 4th, 2019
Exceptional Quality and Craftsmanship
I’ve purchased 3 of these Ushanka Rabbit Fur hats in the last year. They’re excellent quality, great craftsmanship, extremely warm in cold weather. The different ways to wear them is also a bonus. I would suggest getting 1 size larger than your actual head size, but if you like a tight fit then order your normal size. I’ve warn these in the blustery cold and windy conditions in Wyoming and was amazed at how well my head stayed warm while the rest of my body was feeling the impact of the frigid temperatures. I would totally, without hesitation recommend Ushanka hats to anyone! The price is great and shipping is fast! Quality is DEFINITELY BETTER THAN EXPECTED.
Thank you Ushanka for a product the buyer can count on!

From ordering to delivery, the experience was first rate. It was a present and they expedited the delivery for me. The craftsman ship of the hat
was impeccable. Thank you.
Kermit, PORT LUDLOW, WAMay 24th, 2019
, warm, great quality. Received it on time as promised. Sizing was perfect. Very warm, even in sub zero weather.
John Bielawski, Laconia, NH USAMarch 21st, 2019
I just received my Army Officer of the Russian Federation Ushanka
, and it is everything I hoped it would be. The sheepskin is very soft and warm. I love the wool top (wool is one of the best textiles- as far as I'm concerned). And the construction is great. I have no doubt this hat will keep my head warm in the harshest of Chicago winters.
I am also impressed with the speediness of delivery. I ordered on a Wednesday, and received it on Saturday. Now my wife wants one. I will be back!

TRADITIONAL CRAFTMANSHIP MEETS CLASSICAL RUSSIAN ELEGANCE
I have always loved Ushanka hats for winter. They are practical yet sophisticated imo. This Ushanka
exceeds all expectations for me. Expertly crafted, with sound structure and a touch of heft which informs the quality of the hat. I love the look and feel of Karakul wool. It's classic Russian and I am thrilled to purchase at a reasonable price. The folks at Ushanka.com provided expedited service and it would be a privilege to purchase from them in the future. Excellent product
Martin, Columbus, OHJanuary 16th, 2019
Black fur Ushanka
One of the best "investments" i have made. It is of superior quality, exceptionally well made and very functional. I have gotten a ton of compliments. I highly recommend them. You won't regret coughing up the money once you see and hold these. Oh yeah, they are super warm.
Mike, Cleveland, OK, USJanuary 1st, 2019
fits my son perfectly, he is very happy. The same for the mittens.
The seller is great ! Delivery was quick, no problems. This is our second purchase, and we would order from them again without hesitation. Highly recommended!
Casim Abbas, WILLIAMSTON, MIDecember 23rd, 2018
The workmanship is remarkable! Loved it
so much I bought another one for my grandson!
Jared, Collinsville , Somerset MADecember 16th, 2018
Fantastic, and I’ll definitely be ordering another Ushanka from this company. Shipping was great too, no delays or egregious processing times. Product
arrived exactly as described without any defects, which is quite uncommon when dealing with vintage surplus. Again, amazing company and experience would definitely recommend!
Jared, Collinsville , Illinois , United States Of AmericaDecember 5th, 2018
Prompt and Hassle-Free Delivery; Warm and Functional Product!
I gave this ushanka
to someone who isn't really a hat person, but who is a fan of staying warm in WI winters! It arrived promptly (consistent with what other reviewers have said) and was precisely the color, style, and material expected.
Every time we go out and he sees me adjust my earmuffs which never keep still, he offers me his ushanka for my (much smaller) head. This is his way of saying that the hat is a success. Seeing how he gets on, I may get one for myself.
In short, the ushanka come heartily recommended-- just save one for me!
Not a Hat Person, Madison, WI, USANovember 16th, 2018
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,
November 1st, 2018
Been wanting a Ushanka for years! Never knew where to get one. When I finally figured it out there was my color preference, brown fur. Ushanka.com had the answer. I am impressed and surprised by the quality of this hat
and for a hat size hard to find sometimes. As things get colder I am looking forward to the compliments that I know are coming my way!
Old Soldier, Independence, MO, USAOctober 30th, 2018
I love this hat
, it is the warmest fat I have ever worn! Everytime I wear it I get around 5 compliments about it each day! High quality material, and a great look. Best hat I own.
BSG, Rockford, IL, USASeptember 22nd, 2018
Delivery was quick and my ushanka
was in perfect condition. The sizing was spot on and I’m looking forward to trying it out this winter.
Jeff, Michigan , USSeptember 5th, 2018
An amazing item, very happy with my hat
. Speedy delivery was the icing on the cake.
Mathew. Dunedin, Otago, New ZealandAugust 1st, 2018
I bought this hat
in preparation for me and my family moving to a much, much colder climate than sunny California. I'm very pleased to say that it arrived on schedule. The karakul is so much softer than I thought it was going to be, and I'm thrilled that the hat fits nice and snug on my size 58 head. It's super warm, very "official" looking, and I'm really looking forward to taking this fantastic hat with me to the great beyond. Thank you Ushanka.com!
Addison, Burbank, California, USA July 17th, 2018
Nice product and excellent customer service

Karakul sheepskin ushanka. Black.
The magic of having a mild winter after buying a Ushanka is still working great! That being said I did get to wear my black Karakul sheepskin ushanka
quite a bit this winter! All three of my Ushankas are nice, but this one is the nicest. I’ve had several compliments on it this winter and maybe by next winter the magic will wear off enough to test it more thoroughly!
SRC, Deep in the Mountains of WVApril 10th, 2018
is the real deal, guys. I've bought hats from various shady sources on eBay, and ended up with one of these that was advertised as "surplus" but actually made of inferior materials, and made after the collapse of the USSR in '91. If you want an authentic one, get it from here!
Tommy, Berlin, GermanyApril 7th, 2018
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
Kevin, San Francisco, CAFebruary 4th, 2018
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.
John, Gig Harbor, Washington, USAJanuary 7th, 2018
Excellent quality real fur hat
, just like my old one wore in the middle school. Practical and durable.
ILYA, Fond Du Lac. WI, USADecember 28th, 2017
Good Vibes from a lot of people.
I have had remarks saying that the way my hat and insignia was styled as if they were talking to a movie star. It puts them in a moment of robust and adventure. They really enjoy my presence with my Ushanka
DevDecember 8th, 2017
For English readers:
I have been very unhappy with seeing so many
poorly made knock-offs.
It nice to find warm touch from home.
I hope non-russian speakers will also enjoy
fine quality hats made russian way.
Удачи (good luck)
Александр Борисович Мельников, Балтимор, Мариланд, СШАNovember 16th, 2017
I purchased a hat from you all on eBay on 10/17. I've had it for a couple of weeks now and I couldn't be more pleased with the purchase. The quality of the hat has exceeded my expectations by a large margin and I can't say enough about how warm this hat is!
Thank you for offering a great product at the right price. In the world of online retail, people seem to only take the time to complain about bad experiences, so I just wanted to take the time to let you all know that my purchase from you has been an excellent experience. I wish you guys all the best and I hope you stay in business for a long time so that I can buy my next ushanka from you, when (if) this one is ready to be retired.

Fit perfectly...I followed your suggestion. Prompt delivery.
We have extended winters here in Idaho. My cowboy hats don't provide proper ear protection. This Ushanka hat
fills the bill perfectly. Excellent quality....much more comfortable than the faux fur which I have tried on.

Fast Delivery, Great Hat!
A great looking hat
that is so well made! As a seamstress, I always look closely at the construction of a garment and this one appears to be flawless! My husband loves it and can't wait for a cold, country winter to come around again.

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!

OMG! Best Ushanka ever!!
In support of my sister's breast cancer journey, I shaved my hair off knowing we had a trip planned to Washington DC in January 2017. I knew a regular knit cap was not going to work for me/us. I ordered 2, one for me and one for my sister. They were great, kept our heads warm, and fit perfectly. Thank you Dmitri for all of your assistance.
Nina, Memphis TN USAFebruary 9th, 2017
Ushanka arrived in ten days, what an absolute stunning hat the quality is superb along with the service. Dmitry is an absolute gentleman, all I can say is thank you so much for the attention you have given me and my order. What more can I say, come on winter bring it on!

and it fit's and looks perfect. I will be ordering another one soon. Your hats are great quality and the price is unbelievable. You have a customer in me for
Life. we are getting some very cold weather here in Minnesota now and when I walked outside with my new Ushanka I literally could not feel any cold on my head. Thank you
George A Jackson, Brooklyn parkJanuary 5th, 2017
Over the past few years, I have purchased several items from Ushanka. The most recent was actually a Christmas present from my wife which arrived today, a grey rabbit's fur ushanka. A beautifully made hat and extremely warm. I wore it outside late in the day, as it was 47 degrees F outdoors. It was actually too warm for this kind of weather! The sizing in the European metric is very accurate. Both this hat and the grey less expensive man made grey fur are great fits at 60 mm. Both hats are of overall great quality being the real thing made in Belarus, unlike the cheaper Asian made "wanna be's" I have bought. The historical assorted cockades are also of very good quality. Shipping is always very prompt as well.
Thank you very much to the team at Ushanka for being there as a business I can trust. A 5 star rating all the way!

Many thanks Ushanka.com, both for the fantastic hats
and the great customer service! A friend ordered a Russian hat thru Amazon after casually inquiring about my rather large head size. I told her a smaller size by accident and tried to figure out just which company Amazon used in their link. I discovered that Amazon didn't drop ship this but still wasn't sure what Russian hat to expect. To finally just keep everyone happy (including myself, and my friend blindly buying the hat) I ordered a bigger one direct from ushanka.com. Both hats have now arrived for Christmas, and both are of ushanka's import. My luck brother who was born with a regular sized head now gets a great hat too!! Win-win-win all the way around like a 'three way Gift of the Magi!!!' Now I'm looking forward to the real cold coming hopefully in January and February. Thanks again!!

These ushanka hats

I just received my third ushanka
from ushanka.com and it's another winner. I've purchased the lambs wool versions for my daughter and for me; each is just what we wanted and just what was presented on the website. Great service, quick shipping and a very cool, distinctive hat. Many thanks.

yesterday and it's everything I hoped it would be. It's Summer in the Southern Hemisphere, but I can't wait for Autumn and Winter to come! I'm that happy with the product that I'll be buying another one for a mate of mine down in Tasmania. The only real issues that didn't bother me is that the sizes do run small, I recommend getting two sizes up. The last issue is how inefficient USPS was in delivering my product, but that has nothing to do with ushanka.com. I'm very happy and will definitely from you guys again! :)
Lachlan, Canberra, ACT, AustraliaNovember 5th, 2016
Hi Dmitry! I just wanted to first thank you for the detailed confirmation message you sent me after I ordered.
It was appreciated since I was hoping to get the Ushanka
before a certain date (my sons birthday) and your information confirmed that it was going to make it in time.
Not many sellers do this so a big thank you for that!
Secondly I also want to thank you for selling Ushanka hats that are in excellent order!
I've bought some old stock army items in the past and some of them were badly stored and could be full of mold, or smell terrible... This didn't!
In fact it was in such a good condition that I first thought it was a fake... Which it wasn't!
My son is really happy for his Ushanka hat and if I ever need another Ushanka hat again - I will surely contact you!
Not all eBay seller are as serious as you are and I just wanted to thank you for this!

This is my second hat from ushanka.com. Why? Because I loved the first one so much that I wanter a backup. Not only it is the perfect hat for winters in Canada, It looks really cool and the workmanship is truly exemplary. I would also add that buying experience has been nothing short of first class. Thank you Dmitry.

Ever since I bought Ushanka number one I realized that I was an instant fun. These hats are the warmest things you can buy from high quality soviet craftsmanship. Not only does this appeal to those who have sympathy for the USSR but also for people that just want a stylish yet very warm winter hat. 10/10 and plan on buying again!

We are happy owners of the three shearling ushankas purchased within last two months due to the very good quality of the hats and an exceptional customer service I experienced at the site. Black Navy style for my hubby and myself, and gray Army ushanka for our son, all are nice and toasty warm. One thing to keep in mind: when measuring the head, keep the tape right above the eyebrows (touching the top of the brow) and not somewhere in the middle of the forehead as the size of the head in my son's case differed by 1cm and the first hat ordered was too tight! He wanted to send it back for restreching, but when Dimitry had answered the email so friendly and professionally, my son showed it to me with "wow" element of surprise and I decided to keep my son's hat and ordered him a new one(couple sizes bigger) and it is a perfect fit now. So, in my son's case, the head circumference right above the eyebrows was 59cm, we ordered gray Army issue shearling in size 61 and the fit is perfect. If you are wearing glasses/sunglasses in winter it is not a bad idea to get hat that is not too tight. Hope it helps someone, and to the business: thank you for staying above and beyond(in both quality and service!) the typical mediocrity that is swiping across too many businesses nowadays!
February 24th, 2016
Got much help from the seller Dmitry and received my ushanka in just a few days. Although I'm from overseas Europe all went very smooth. I would order at ushanka again without any doubt. I recommend this store as being reliable, good service and very helpful.

I really enjoy this hat. It looks great & is very stylish. You can tell that it is well crafted with high quality material. I hope to be wearing it every winter for many years to come. Great service & was delivered on time in spite of the East Coast blizzard. Looking forward to purhasing the brown mouton army ushanka #002 when it becomes available.

Excellent hat for extreme cold weather. I work as driver for a gasoline carrier in northeastern Ohio.
When the temperature falls below 20 F., this hat will keep you warm and comfortable in extreme cold weather. The staff at ushanka will respond quickly with any assistance you may need. I'll continue to be a fan of Ushanka hats and highly recommend them. Thank you Ushanka for a fine product. & Thank You, Dmitry

NOTHING SHORT OF INCREDIBLE
Just got my ushanka in today! Words cannot describe how happy I am with this product. Ever since I was 10 I've always wanted my own real fur ushanka to brave through the tough Vermont winters. Fist things first, I ordered this ushanka on Wednesday, it just arrived on early Saturday! 2 and 1/2 days to arrive! (Shipped from New York to Vermont, I even tracked the order and it went to New Hampshire first. So It jumped over Vermont then back, and still only took 2 and 1/2 days! First time seeing, feeling, and wearing this hat I fell in love! Stylish, comfortable, extremely warm and it fits perfect! I will forever be buying my ushankas from this website. The only place I could find real ushankas. I refused to buy any product not made in Russia, I wanted it to be 100% Russian ushanka and that's what this site has to offer. (and no its not just a name, the Russians really know how to do their stuff!) If I could rate this a 10 out of 5 I would have! Well done! I'll be buying a Karakul sheepskin one in the future!

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.

Ordered three Ushanka hats. All arrived in good condition and fast! One was the Soviet issued "fish fur" soldiers hat, came with the official stamps inside. Great hats and warm, all high quality. Checked out several websites and found the prices here to be the best. Will be ordering more in the future. Highly recommend this company, GREAT customer service and hats!!!

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!!!

Arctic Circle Soviet Soldiers Ushanka
Being the owner of Ushanka.com's 'Soviet Soldiers' ushanka, and knowing first hand its stellar performance in field conditions, I decided to up the ante and order the 'Arctic Circle Soviet soldiers ushanka because of the truly frigid winter extremes here in Northern Minnesota. Once again, Dmitry excelled in customer service, answered all of my questions and sent additional photos and explanation of the hat. It arrived in record time and well.. has performed in the superlative fashion that I was led to believe it would! I would recommend this company and it's beautiful ushankas to anyone, without any reservation what so ever.

Buy with confidence. Beautiful hat(rabbit fur).
Got it for my husband but was disappointed that it arrived earlier than i thought . ;) He received the package because I wasn't expecting it, but luckily didn't open it.
The package was small and I wasn't sure the hat could fit in it but then the magic happened, this fluffy, great quality, the color is awesome(just like described hat) came out of it.....And now I'm jealous. Have to get one for myself and my kids .........and I will....
Thank you so much!

I love it!
I absolutely love this hat it's so warm and good. 2 words NO REGRETS, shipping was really fast
It also came with the correct insignia! I have no issues at the moment, it is very comfortable and the insignia also shines! I would definitely recommend this for wintertime, but you can use it any time of the year too which makes the hat so amazing. To anyone reading this, STOP THINKING AND JUST BUY IT ALREADY!

Naval officer mouton ushanka, genuine leather top.
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.

Naval Officer Ushanka
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

Hello, I just wanted to write and tell you I am extremely satisfied with your products. I have ordered several hats from you and they are very warm and well fitting. Best hat anybody could ever want on a cold, windy, Nebraska winter night. I will definitely order from you again. The latest hat I ordered was made in Ukraine, which seems to be better quality, it has more back of the neck coverage and folds up more neatly than the Russian ones. I just thought I'd give you my opinion. Thank you for the great service and great hats!

The second i felt the hat i was really impressed with how good the material/fur feels. It feels antithetic, like it came straight out of Russia or Germany. Worth the money, also great for winters here in NY!

Russian Navy officer mouton
Received my Ushanka today Thursday 1st October 2015 only took 6 working days to Wellington New Zealand. The quality is outstanding and I know having purchased 1 from Christchurch via Trade me and it is very poor quality in comparison. I love this hat and can't wait for winter to return. Well worth the $112.00 NZD I paid.
Thanks for the email Dimitry on fitment guide, as my head measured 62cm and was advised to go to 64cm and it fits like a glove.

I bought the first ushanka a couple of years ago, because my son was learning about WW2 in school and badly wanted one. The field soldier ushanka was fantastic and he wore it until he grew out of it. Still looks the same and friend's kid now wears it. (Wouldn't take it off first three days, slept with it!) With all the snow and cold here this year, I remembered your site and ordered the rabbit fur ushankas for both my boys this time. The order arrived today, THREE days after I ordered it in perfect condition. You should have seen the level of excitement. They're soft, they're warm, they're fluffy, they're perfect. Now my husband wants one, my Dad is hinting for one, my Mom would like one for the ladies, and what the heck, I want one too! I'll be ordering more and telling friends about you! Thank you, Valentina, for the excellent product and fantastic customer service experience!!!

I bought an Ushanka before last Christmas, and even if the trip to reach Rome, in Italy, was long, the hat arrived at home in the right time and was in perfect conditions. Very nice hat, better then in the pictures!! I will buy other ushankas for the rest of my family!

This is amazing. I've always wanted an ushanka. Ordered from amazon soviet military Cossack ushanka. Ordered Tuesday and I was told it would arrive a week later. It arrived that Friday. I am extremely happy with this. I would recommend this site to anyone. My dream of having one is now crossed off the bucket list. Thanks.

Thank you for your excellent service! The hat fits great and is even nicer than the ones I bought from you in the past.
I have to tell you something--even though I have suits custom-made for me in Hong Kong and get compliments on them, I have never, ever experienced what happened when I wore your ushanka a few cold days ago in Taipei City. When it gets cold here, due to the humidity, it penetrates deeply into your bones. So, I wore my new ushanka in town (live on a mountain and wear it often here). Person after person came up to me to compliment me on my ushanka! Complete strangers! I have never seen anything like it!
p.s. I bought two hats, and my neighbor liked mine so much that I gave him my second new ushanka hat as a gift!

Just wanted to let you know I ordered and received a Black lambskin mouton ushanka hat. I am extremely satisfied and happy with the hat. I received it very quickly. It's a GREAT hat and appears to be well made. I definitely would recommend you to anyone!

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.

I have rarely, if ever, been as satisfied with an online purchase as I am with these. I have seen Canadian products at twice the price that were merely style statements. I had a feeling that I should buy ushanka made by the people that use them and these prove that right. Sizes were perfect, materials exactly as described. Ordered on Friday, arrived Monday. You deserve all the business you can handle. I will be sending some your way. Thank you for your promptness and honesty.

I ordered the black sheep skin ushanka. I am VERY pleased with quality of my ushanka!! It's very well made. I live in Iowa where the winters can get VERY cold! This hat is exactly what I need. My wife, who is from Moscow, Russia, said I looked like I was in the military. LOL! But she loves the hat as well.
I would HIGHLY recommend this hat and I would recommend ordering it from ushanka.com!

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.

I received my black Mouton sheepskin Trapper Russian hat today, in record time. Let me tell you this is the place to buy a Winter Hat. The quality is just excellent--5 stars. The service that ushanka.com gives is also excellent. I will buy again. Go with the advice given to add two hat sizes to your hat size. My hat size is 7 1/2. I went from a size 60 to a 62. Perfect fit.

The Ushankas arrived today. That now makes 9 that I have purchased since Sept. 2014.
Common sense dictates that a person wouldn't buy that many that quickly if the hats didn't represent good value and you didn't have an excellent vendor.
That said, it can be assumed I WILL buy more soon as everyone I know seem to want one once they see them.
This is an Ushanka Invasion!

I must say gat I really love my hat, and that I have received many compliments from my friends and complete strangers! One of my teachets asked where I got my hat, and is considering getting one too! I also appreciate the extra Soviet insignia that you have given me for no extra cost. I highly reccomend everyone to buy a hat from here, and to buy your exact size.
Also, the sheepskin Ushanka's are warmer then the rabbit fur Ushanka's. Confitmed by someone who bought both the black sheepskin and rabbit fur Ushanka.

First I apologize for my poor English proficiency, on Friday received my Ushanka Rabbit Fur, I love, I must say that the quality of the product is much higher than I imagined, I bought this hat for my girlfriend, and I'm sure she'll love it, I think because of you she's going to love me a little more, given how beautiful and original product, especially in a country like mine where such clothing are rare.

This hat is fantastic, exactly what I was looking for. Ordered on Friday, shipped on Saturday, arrived on Wednesday. I was so glad to have found your company on Amazon. Thank you for providing high quality, authentic ushankas. A nice bonus was that the size I ordered happened to be an authentic Russian navy surplus hat. Very warm, great fit. I'll be ordering from you in the future.

In addition to the prompt service, they included an additional insignia badge. That was a welcomed surprise and much appreciated. Tremendous customer service.

I received my Ushanka 19 Feb 2014, fast turnaround from when I ordered it considering Monday was a holiday. When I opened the package and tried it on it fit just right for me. Didn't have a chance to wear it until yesterday 25 Feb 2014. I will be wearing it since we're going to get a cold snap the next couple of day. Great quality. Love the black one that I ordered.

After a couple of leather Navy Officer Ushankas (from elsewhere) that I wasn't too happy with, I decided to try this site. Ordered my Army Officer Ushanka -size61, which has a woolen top and straight away felt comfortable, should have ordered from here in the first place. It fits well with ears up or down whereas the leather one -size 62, was loose tied up and still too tight with ears down. This one is my current favourite hat, happy at last.

WOW, I ordered the natural colored Sheepskin for my girlfriend on Wed night and just received delivery Sat morning. Dmitry is an absolute gentleman to deal with and very accommodating. He was out of stock on an item he normally gets in once a year but he went out of his way to locate what I was looking for. The quality of this product is excellent. I will definitely be placing another order.

I just received my sheepskin Ushanka and am more than pleased with it. I am replacing an old rabbit fur Ushanka hat that I bought in Russia about 18 years ago. I always take testimonials with a grain of salt but I have read most of these and agree completely. Quality, price, service, and delivery are all better than I had hoped. I know people will be asking me where they can get a hat like mine and I will be glad to tell them.

I had the white faux fur for my wife and the Russian navy seaman hat for me, and couldn't be more happy, they are simply fabulous. Excellent quality and very comfy. Of course in Mexico we do not have that much cold days, ha-ha, neither too extreme temperatures, so the days that do get cold we're prompt to proudly wear our Russian treasures. The insignias are so cool that they simply catch everybody's attention. Ushanka send us the goods almost immediately after we placed the order and their attention and service was superb. I wish we could buy one hat of each model!!

I placed the order on Thursday evening after work, received my order in the following Monday's mail.

I am very pleased with the quality of the product, quick service, and amazingly fast delivery. Thank you very much.

Found this website looking for a good winter hat to order online, and am I glad I found this website. After being amazed by the selection, I ordered the Navy Officer Mouton Fur Hat and it was at my house in 3 days. After sticking the insignia on the front, I put it on my head and my god... was it warm. I had to take it off within a couple of minutes because I started sweating! I've been telling friends and family about this website ever since my first order, and since then I've got an Army Officer Mouton hat and my dad ordered a Black Rabbit Fur hat. Kids at school are starting to check these hats out and a couple have already ordered! When "stormageddon" started all across the country, I went for a woods walk with my Navy Officer Mouton hat on in blizzard conditions with the standing temperature at -20F... didn't feel a thing. 40 mph winds had no effect while I had my hat on. The dang thing is so incredibly warm and comfortable. My advice for anyone looking at this website wanting a high-quality, durable, and warm winter hat, this is the place. I smile on the inside when I see items "Out of Stock", because Dimitri definitely deserves all of the business he can get.

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.

For $30 I wasn't sure what I would get. However, the moment I put it on I instantly knew that my cheap old chinese trapper hat was out of service! This hat is extremely warm, and just looks cool! I also ordered the Imperial Eagle insignia and put it on the hat. This just completes the package. I will definitely be ordering from you guys again! Thanks!

I am not typically a buyer who writes about my purchases. But the three hats I purchased from you are so beautiful, so finely constructed and were so well received by my teenagers, (who begged me to give them to them as soon as they found out they had arrived), I had to send a note of thanks and praise. It is rare to find outstanding product quality, excellent customer service and fair prices all at the same retailer. You and your team are getting it right on every count and you have several new young customers for life!
Cheers and Happy Holidays!

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.

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 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.

I just have to say the ushanka I ordered from you IS AMAZING! I wear it everyday, and many people have been asking me about it, commenting about it, and where they could order one. I just said "ushanka.com is the place to go to get one ." If I ever want to order another or recommend one, I know to always order from ushanka.com. Thanks again!

I love my Ushanka which I have had for about 2 years now. When I received the hat it was a bit small but I was able to contact Dmitri who was more than willing to help me stretch to fit the hat. I can now say that this was a great purchase choice and I will be a repeat customer in the future. Thanks Ushanka.com and Dmitri for a quality product and a great shopping experience.

Hey just wanted to say I rec'd my Ushanka today and could not be more happy with it.
In the last three months I have bought and returned about seven different Ushanka's all of which were second rate, made in China, and of poor quality. I am replacing an Ushanka I bought about ten years ago and literally thought I was out of luck until I happened across your site. Why I didn't think to put a www.exactlywhatiamlookingfor.com in my browser window escapes me but I found you nonetheless.
Thanks again, glad you are in business and delivering an exceptional item in a field of sub-par products.

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.

The only thing that makes me sad about this Ushanka (black with imperial eagle) is that I live in Florida and will only be able to use it for maybe two months out of the year. Great quality, prompt shipping, and it fits my oversized head better than any other hat I've ever had. Love it!

Brilliant hat , seriously if you want to keep your head and ears and back of your neck toasty REALLY toasty get one of these. I bought the $80 black sheepskin one
and I have to say its the best $80 ive ever spent
totally worth it and would buy another one again without hesitation
Great product and super fast shipping as well 10/10

After purchasing my Black Ushanka size 58, but only bought it during late fall weather.. and here in VA Beach having an awkward climate, the temperature is only around 80 high, 60 low during fall weather.
finally when it reached November, temperatures are lowered finally able to wear the ushanka with pride!
Wore it to school in the cold chilly weather, quite a few people were really surprised to see an actual Russian Ushanka.
I am also attending a Russian language class in my school, and the teacher was really surprised to see an Ushanka, said its like the military officers and such.
I continue to wear it when its cold out. its one of the only International foreign hats that are actually fashionable!

My son gave me the sheepskin brown Ushanka for Christmas! Thank you, Dimitri, for assisting him with this sale, as the original he had given me was not exactly as I wanted. I am SO pleased with my Ushanka! I can't wait to wear it tomorrow since we are having an incredibly cold snap here in Maryland. Love it, love it, love it! Highest quality imaginable. Will purchase more ;-)

Just want to say a BIG thankyou for the Black Mouton Ushanka. It only took a week to arrive and I have just tried it on. It is absolutely gorgeous and fits like a glove. Too bad that we are on the verge of a mini heat wave for the first week in January(it is supposed to reach 11 celsius) as I can't wait to show it off. I have been telling everyone at work about it and they can't wait to see it either. Looks like you will be getting more sales from here soon. Again thankyou for the beautifully made hat and the top notch professional service. Regards, Mark.

Dimitri, thank you for the Ushanka hat and emblem I received. I appreciate the personal service, it is nice to know that you were concerned about the order. The hat was of the highest quality, even more than I had expected after speaking to you. Expect me to be a return customer as my daughter will be getting a new Ushanka as she outgrows the one she is now wearing.
thank you again

My new Ranger hat arrived today and I am writing to tell you that I am so pleased with it. It is made so skillfully and it fits perfectly. The hat is elegant and functional at the same time. I can't wait to wear it while walking in the snow.
Many thanks to all of you for getting the hat to me by Christmas. It is a great present!

The ushanka I ordered kept my head completely warm through freezing sub zero temperatures while I was deployed for over half a year overseas. Thank you so so very
much for your product. It was so worth the the money I have ordered another even though my previous product has not warn out the slightest bit. A big salute to Russian authentic winter headgear.

Many thanks for the speedy service! I love the hat - even though I went for the cheaper, artificial fur, it is incredibly warm and just right for Wisconsin winter. Highly recommended and ideal for those with a hat size outside of one size fits all!

Excellent ushanka! Excellent variety! And excellent shipping I must say! Considering the shipping from NY You would expect maybe a week, and that's where I was wrong I only had to wait 3 business days for my ushanka! I will definitely order AGAIN and AGAIN!!

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.

Hi to all you people that are having a time wondering if these hats are worth the money. I have bought 2 of them in the last month. Both of them are the best well made hats that I have ever owned. The one a black lambs skin was just a bit small, so I called Ushanka, and they told me just how to stretch it to fit, easy as pie. Have no fear of the quality, it is tops. It is nice that someone cares, and sells only the very best.

My ushanka arrived today and what a surprise! It is the most well-made hat I have ever bought. The back of the hat folds down to cover all of my neck so winter won't have a chance to touch me. Thank you ushanka.com!

I just recieved my ushanka today and I am more than pleased with the quality! I've wanted one for so long and I was pleased to see my younger sister bring me the package at 8 in the morning XD. Its very comfy and I love the insignia, I'm going to use it for ski camping and my journey to the UK next summer (proper side of the globe), and many more cold places. Thank you for your polite service. Hope to buy again soon.

I recently ordered a rabbit fur ushanka from Ushanka.com and have received it today in the timeframe specified by your website. I cannot thank you enough for this item. In just a few hours, I can totally feel the difference between a ushanka and the wool tuque I've had for years. I just can't compare both
I am also amazed at the quality of the item. Not only does it feel specifically made to withstand extreme temperatures, I can finally see why russian officials, various other military figures and citizens have been using them for years because it honestly surpasses any modern day winter hats made of synthetic fabric claiming to be "ultra-hot" under extreme cold. It's actually a lot warmer than anything else I've worn before. And admittedly, it makes one look damn good in the process. It's win-win situation across the line. :)
I can finally deal with our rigorous Canadian winters knowing my head will be the only thing not suffering from frostbite.
Thank you again for my brand new ushanka hat !
From Canada with love!

When my son told me he wanted a hat instead of the gift of a TV for X-mas, I knew he was nuts.
I was sure he would be disappointed, but ordered it. It was close to X-mas and was afraid it would be delivered after,
was pleasantly surprised when it was here early. I don’t think he’s had it off since, he goes out with shorts, and the hat!
We've had warmer than usual weather but he wears his hat.
I was very impressed with my purchase and feel so smart for getting such a good deal.
I have passed on your site to other friends, that now want a hat too. Thank you,

Valentina, I received my Ushanka yesterday. It is an awesome hat. I measure 22" and went with the size 57, it fits like a tailor made product. The quality is top notch, and I put it to use last night in the chilly temps of N.W. Pa. The light weight, soft feel, (inside &; out) and the warmth, has made this one of the best hats I have ever purchased. I had so many people say it was the coolest hat they had ever personally seen, it was passed around half the time I was out!!!! I should have gotten this years ago!!! All my doubts about the Ushanka were put to rest, I cannot thank you enough......yours is the "real deal". Have a great New Year.

just want to say thank you for my rabbit fur ushanka, like others have said it can be hard to find one that fits if you have a bigger than average head so I was very happy to find that you can supply them in bigger sizes, the quality and feel of it is great.
It did take a bit longer than you advertised to arrive but it was not unexpected and obviously out of your control due to the severe weather that both we had here I the UK and you had in NY, so very happy when it arrived the other day.
many thanks again for great service at a great price.

Howdy. I received yesterday a military Ushanka that I purchased off the web.
It took me a few hours to trawl through the web to purchase one and most of
the suppliers advised that they were all original, which I doubted, as I
presumed that they would have copied the original design and made them
either in China or Mexico Yours arrived and I was very impressed with the
quality and manufacture of the item and as far as I can tell it appears to
be the real deal. I do need to purchase another one shortly for a friend in
Australia which I will do, however I just wanted to send you an e-mail to
advise how impressed I was with the delivery and quality of your product, so
South Melbourne Victoria Australia
Thank you so much. I expected quality, but this surpasses my expectations. I already enjoy my ushanka immensely. On top of that, it was shipped extraordinarily fast. Ordered Friday night, I'm wearing it Tuesday night. I have wanted this hat since I was 16 years old (I'm nearly 41) and I'm extremely pleased with it. Thank you again. Everyone who asks where they can buy one will be directed to your web site. Thank you !!!

I received my Russian ushanka hat just this week, and I can't go even one day without wearing it! It is so comfortable, and all of my friends want one now. Thank you so much for providing such an affordable, quality product. It will be a much more bearable winter with my new ushanka. Once again, thank you, and I will definitely consider purchasing from you again in the future.

I just received my hat today, 12/31, and it is GREAT!!! I ordered the rabbit fur ushanka and I really like it.
The temperatures have been mild lately, but I'll be ready for the New Year with this excellent hat!
Shipping was fast and it was a pleasure doing business with you. I really liked that I did not have to wait almost a month to get it from Russia, you have them here already.

First of all, let me congratulate you on your amazing hats. The quality of my hat is astounding and the delivery to the UK was very very quick especially considering Christmas being so near. Your customer service is on a par with the quality of the hats! I have never had after sales service for clothing but you provided extremely valuable tips that will help me enjoy my Ushanka more!
It’s been a pleasure dealing with ushanka.com. I got my hat swift and it was just as explained. Great quality and craftsmanship on the hats.
These hats retail at double the price in Norway, so the price is also very good.
I will be dealing with this site again and I will certainly tell about this site to my friends.

I got my brown lamb fur ushanka about a month ago, promptly after my order. Since then, I have worn it almost every day.
This winter has been exceptionally cold and snowy in Virginia breaking numerous snow records. I have worn my ushanka for 2 hours at a time in 15F temperatures with 40 mph windgusts while clearing my house and property and neighbor's houses of snow and ice.
Despite the extreme conditions, I have always had a warm and comfortable head. The ushanka is an oustanding winter hat!

were all really impressed with it too. Will definitely consider buying
from you again in the future. Thanks again.

I won’t look anywhere else from now on to buy ushankas. I really like your

color rabbit fur, "Like on the front page of the website" and probably one
of the synthetic fur soldier one's like I see all the guys in the Army
wearing. I thank you for your help and your time. keep up the good work! I’m
looking forward to getting another ushanka from you. Take care. Dobrei
