Finnish Military Surplus M65 Wool Field Cap, New is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by OldGrunt from WarmThese are very nice wool, and they keep out all the wind, snow, and the winter blues. Bought two mediums, one is 22" and the other is 22.5". I have a larger head so I wear the big one and my little sister adores the smaller one. They came with the military surplus smell, but they are new and clean and the smell went away within the week. According to what I could dig up on the internet, they are supposed to be worn like in the attached picture, with the buttons under the chin, "kissing cuffs" style, similar to the Austrian mountain hat. This keeps the sides tight to your head. I wear it every day to the office and have been complemented on it, makes a good winter dress hat. One should note that the color in the attached picture is true to life, both are almost graphite. Remember: its surplus, colors may vary.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Artemus from Mixed resultsI ordered three, two large (got a 58 and 57) and one medium (got what is unmarked and MUST be a very small one). Useless size but would fit a child. The large ones were brand new with stapled size on top and nice leather sweatband. The "medium" one has no size and a ruined cracked and torn sweatband. It literally crumbled away. No emblems on any of mine. So result was 2 out of 3 good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sanglier from Stayed on the backorder roster for six weeks waiting for a size XL to arrive, with a dozen people ahead of me. The lucky few got theirs; my order was among the ones that got cancelled. Figured I'd give the "L" a shot, hoping for a size 59, but got a size 58 instead. The hat received is NOS and fits true to size (i.e., too small for me), and is made out of much darker and possibly thicker cloth than the one in the illustration, but matches the shade of the jacket and pants that SG also carries. Bought this mainly to complete the set, but wish SG would only sell what it has, instead of what it may or may not have months into the future (there seem to be more and more of such items in the surplus section lately). Even though it costs the customer nothing to be on the wait list, and the first-come-first-served policy favors those who act fast, it's still not a good feeling to have one's hopes raised only to see them dashed time and again...

Rated 5 out of 5 by ccyooper from Nice CapThe cap is much nicer than the picture,the alternate picture is better. Size is a bit snug for me. Bought the Large (I wear 7 3/8). It comes with the Finnish enlisted emblem, which is plastic as are the buttons. My buddy saw it and ordered one too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gebirgsjgr from Great piece of MilitariaThis is a great item for collectors and people who just like cool army things. I immediately ordered another one so that I could wear one and keep one for display.Both caps were absolutely un-issued - still having an tag stapled to the top. The cap is very well constructed with fine materials and workmanship.
