Today the fashion world is full of various novelties and stylish stuff, which can amaze you with the variety of colors, designs and forms. But still, usable and comfortable things are in better fame than pretty but useless fashion accessories. To such usable things we can refer Russian ushanka hats. This type of head-dress has firstly been designed for Soviet Union soldiers, though the analogue of such hat was found even earlier in Korea and China. The construction of ushanka hat helps to cope with bad weather conditions, what is very sufficient for Russian climate. The very word “ushanka” has Russian origin and can be translated as “hat with ear-flaps”. This is due to the hat design, which includes ear-flaps that can be tied at the bottom, at the back of the head of under the chin. This is very comfortable, as these three ear-flap positions can save you from strong wind and frost. Especially if you tie it under the chin, you will protect your cheeks and neck from wind.
