    In the process of building/sourcing a 1980s Soviet-Afghan War kit, missing a source for the kepi and the standard grey ushanka. Well, to be fair, I've found sources, but none with size 60-62. Damn my giant head Mad anyhow, if anyone has one of these they'd be willing to part with, I'd appreciate a PM with offer. Would prefer one with the red star on it but not important as these are fairly easy to find.

    I normally wear a size 58 for hats.
    The size 60 Ushanka I own feels like a 56, REALLY tight!
    I heard the same things from other Ushanka owners before, too.

    Yes, Soviet sizes tend to run tight from my experience. But not always!
