M43 Elite Field Cap - Spring Oak Leaf Camouflage

Stock Status: In Stock

The M43 field cap or "Einheitsmütze" was a cap used by the German Wehrmacht and SS, during World War II. The design of the fieldcap was based on the German Gebirgsjäger's ski cap, the only differences being the bill was slightly extended and the top panel of the hat had a smaller circumference, giving it slightly sloped in sides. The "Feldmütze" was the German garrison cap, which the much more popular M43 was intended to (and essentially did) replace. The M43 field cap was identical to the other branch field caps, with the exception of them being made in camouflage material. Insignia differed according to the branch of service. Lining was generally brown twill or satin.

This is a M43 Field cap in spring oak camouflage, a reproduction based on the version used in in World War 2. It is quality made of cotton poplin, with 2 pebbled metal buttons. Unbuttons to fold under the chin. May have a makers stamp depending on stock.

Use during re-enactments, fancy dress, as a prop for films and TV, or add to your militaria collection as a display item.
