M44 Field Cap - Reversible Oak Leaf Camouflage

Stock Status: In Stock

The M44 field cap or "Einheitsmütze" was a cap used by the German Waffen SS, during World War II. The design of the field cap 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. Unlike regular field caps, the M44 was reversible and featured summer and spring camouflage patterns, this made it easier to blend into the surroundings in various conditions. The M44 had metal grommets and a longer bill than the M43 which it eventually replaced.

This is a M44 EM field cap, a reproduction based on the version used in World War 2. A quality reproduction, made of HBT, Oak camouflage pattern and has metal grommet holes. It is completely reversible and can be worn in either the Autumn or the Spring pattern.

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