This is a reproduction of the Finnish m/22 Field Hat, in use from 1919 until roughly 1942.
This field hat was the first widely issued hats of the Finnish military. First models were issued in 1919 and continued to be made until about 1928. The hat went through some changes over time and there is great variation between the different manufacturers and years, all still following the basic style. This hat replicates a later style of the hat, being slightly lower than the early models. The hat has been patterned off of few surviving examples in collections.
The hat was issued to armoured troops in the Finnish military. The hat is made out of black wool and has grey cotton liner. The liner has an artificial silk manufacturers label and the size is stamped next to it. The hat has fold-down flaps on the side, which a mostly cosmetic. The flaps are held with two small copper plated coat-of-arms buttons on the top. The flap has one large copper plated button in the front and a pressed steel blue-white national cockade over it. Officers hat would have the red officers cockade on the buttom and a enamel white-blue national cockade on the top.
This hat can be ordered with a sweatband.
This hat comes with the copper buttons and a pressed national cockade.
