The M43 cap is derived from the unpopular M42 field cap. The wartime "M43" cap was simply the "M42" cap with the addition of a visor that was sized approximately half way between the large visor of the "M40" tropical cap and the small visor of the Mountain cap (Bergmütze; which was used by Jäger, Gebirgsjäger, and Skijäger troops exclusively). The visor-less M42 had issues so they were re-worked to address mainly, the Russian winter.
Made exactly like the EREL originals of Feldgrau wool with appropriate tailoring and features. Cotton lined with 'year' & maker markings, these are the best repro M42 Transitional caps available today. They also have field green metal buttons and just like the originals one ventilation hole each side.
These German (Einheitsfeldmütze peaked caps are made in Germany by the EREL owned company.
