The word "flecktarn" comes from the German words "fleck" meaning "spot", and "tarnung" meaning "camouflage". When you look at it for the first time, it's pretty self evident. However simple the idea of have 5 coloured dots mashed together being adopted as the German Army's go-to pattern, these little dots have a lot of history. Today's Flecktarn is the result of decades of German camouflage development dating back to the Second World War with the original Axis "pea-patterns".
The mix of black, brown, dark olive and medium olive green spots on a mossy background make this simple pattern, surprisingly effective in temperate environments, making it the ideal pattern throughout North America and Europe. These outstanding hats punch well above their weight in terms of value for cost. They feature the ever-popular Flecktarn pattern on a trapper-style lined cap with a standard cloth visor and extra warm ear flaps that can be velcroed around the chin or over the hat for peak aesthetics.
The polyester heavy overall construction of the hat will keep this rugged hat together even in the worst of conditions. Yes you may look like German Elmer Fudd wearing it, but you'll stay nice and cozy with the 50-50 cotton-polyester faux fur lining. Anything in Flecktarn as surplus will become increasingly rare as the German military recently decided that instead of surplusing these fine hats out the public, they're going to be burning them in the most environmentally unfriendly way possible.
