An ushanka hat is a traditional Russian headwear, which is yet very trendy and stylish. It is extremely warm as it was designed for severe Russian winters. Its secret is in ear-flaps, that can be tied in three different positions to keep you warm and cozy. This is due to these ear-flaps ushanka has its name, as “ushi” in Russian language means “ears”. Wearing ushanka with ear-flaps tied under chin will protect your ears and chicks from cold, and if tied on the heads back, it will effectively protect your neck from wind. As you see it is very practical, and moreover these positions give you three different styles of a hat.
