Product Description

Pilotka, a Russian Army foldable side cap is a field service hat worn by soldiers and officers. In the US Army pilotka is called Garrison cap. This pilotka is made out of 50% wool, 50 % cotton and has cotton lining inside. Side flaps drop down to provide protection from wind, moisture and cold. Pilotka is great at repelling water and will keep your head warm, even when the ear flaps are unfolded.
A pilotka with no stripes, belongs to the basic GI unit of the Red Army Infantry.
These caps are dated anywhere between early 60s to late 80s.
Unissued military stock (NS) condition.

In Russia side caps were first implemented in the doors of WW2, when budenovka hats were substituted by pilotka. Usually pilotka is made out of cotton with stripes and insignia that distinguish to which military branch the piece belongs.

This item is sold by RussianArmySurplus and ships from Syracuse NY, USA

    I love this Pilotka. I am a big history buff and this garrison cap goes perfect with my Mosin-Nagant rifle. My only question with this beautiful hat is how to install the star. If anyone is willing to help with a comment that'd be awesome but overall I love the authentic markings and cyrlic letterings on the inside of the hat.

    This hat is an ideal choice for an collector, history buff, military buff or anyone who thinks it looks plain cool! I was very content with the quality of not only the product itself but the packaging and the shipping speed. I have absolutely nothing bad to say! The hat fits perfectly and the color and quality of the material is superb and vibrant. I would most definitely purchase again from this merchant.

    This is a re-review of the hat, and I would like to say that the company ushanka.com has a level of customer service that rivals no other. It is a beautiful hat, the problems experienced were resolved rather quickly, and the company wanted to do whatever they could do to help. This has earned them my customer loyalty for life. On the note of the hat, it is authentic, as it shows when you look inside and see the Cyrillic markings.

    It also comes with a less obtrusive silver star to replace the red one. As it turns out, people can be very sensitive about that sort of thing.

    well... its not a bad hat although it is nothing like picture. it is very wrinkly and has no directions on how to apply the badge. but the reason this hat is ok, is that it legit! mine is a 1974 model and it comfy. please i want to have the badge!
