Crossbred from Ushanka’s and aviator hats, our Original Alaskan Fur Hats have a profound history. The legacy of the Ushanka, our fur trooper hat, is said to have originated from the ancient Scythians of the Iron Age, 600 BC. As nomads, the Scythians braved the unforgivable European winters in their Ushanka’s, literally translating into “ear hat”. Ushanka’s have maintained popularity throughout the world for centuries and have played a powerful role in the histories of countries such as Russia and Canada. Now, fast forward to the start of the twenty first century. During the onset of aviation, pilots of open cockpit planes would be seen in protective leather hats with a brim and secured ear flaps to protect themselves from the elements.
