Jäger cap: short visor, leather tape around the head, the characteristic brown buttons. The cap is made of thick cloth, has ventilation holes on sides, and has stamp of the manufacturer and size inside on the cupola.
Inside of the visor is cardboard. The cap shouldn't be washed in the washing machine. You should apply a liquid cleaner on the contaminated areas, rub these with a brush or sponge and rinse with a stream of water. Dry expanded.
The material of the lining, buttons and stamps may differ from that in the photo, but will be within the historical compliance.
The WH-insignia is sewn by a professional tailor. You can buy from us the same insignia separately and sew it yourself, but it will take a few hours of time and in the end can lead to disappointment. Finally you will save not big money. It makes more sense to purchase a cap with the emblem already sewn.
The cap is considered a part of the field uniform (all-season). However, it is more convenient to wear it in the winter. The cap was used by mountain troops and by field Jäger units from the end of the 1930s until the introduction of the Einheitsfeldmütze (all-branches cap) in 1943. After 1943, the cap was not produced, but used. Eagle and cockade on a single piece in the shape of the letter T was usually sewn on the front.
