Winter uniforms for German soldiers were actively developed due to the harsh climatic conditions on the Eastern Front. The first models were released in the fall of 1942. At the same time, the first fur hats appeared.
They were made by analogy with mountain caps, with a band and lapels made of fur, German classic Mutze with fur ears. Another variant of the hat was a "ushanka" (literally: earflap hat) of the Russian type, but with an oval crown. This is exactly what is offered here. The third type of winter hat-earflaps had a hemispherical dome sewn from segments.
Hats were made of uniform cloth and fur of various colors. Fur hats could be sewn with the standard insignia for hats or only one. Officers and non-commissioned officers could wear metal eagles and cockades, as on caps. Soldiers usually had no insignia on their earflaps.
On the Eastern Front, captured earflaps equipped with breast eagles were also popular.
