Country of Origin: Rhodesia 

The Rhodesian Brushstroke pattern is legendary, from it's inception during the Rhodesian Bush War to later service throughout Africa. To this day, a variant of Rhodesian Brushstroke to this day remains the standard camo of the Zimbabwean Army. At one point, the pattern was noted as being so effective that it was in contention to replace the M83 Woodland pattern for the United States Marine Corps. We're proud to be one of the few places to be selling this faithful reproduction!

The spittin' image of the Rhodesian soldier was defined by this iconic Rhodesian "Keko" style hat. This classic bush hat is 100% cotton and reproduced in the famous Rhodesian Brushstroke pattern. It includes the iconic buttoned sun flap, which makes it for day time patrols and adventures. It also features a reproduction ADLER tag inside.

I can't believe it fits my head!
You know, my head size is yuuuuuge. It's like 62cm circumference, yet the bloody bastard only had sizes 60cm in stock when I ordered it! I took the risk and bought it regardless. Fortunately it fits my head like a glove as with the SADF bush hat. It feels slightly tight but it's no where near uncomfortable. It's probably because the type of fabric this hat uses is more flexible and stretchier than the fabric used to produce the SADF bush hat. It's also super light weight but durable to the touch. As usual with FFV quality, stitching and craftsmanship is always on-point as expected. it's a very comfortable hat to wear and super stylish. My only complaint is that my copy lacks as many brushstroke elements as the one in the example product photo. It's not a con worthy of a single star taken off since FFV has no control over how the factory cuts the rolls of fabric during manufacturing. Thank you for taking the time to read my review. If you're ever doing Rhodie reenactment, this authentic reproduction hat is a must for completing your load out!

Great Quality
I was really blown away by the attention to detail that was put into this cap. The quality of the fabric is amazing, and the brushstroke is on point. Best repro mil-surp company in the world!

Mr.
Couldn't wait for this gem, but the snail-mail made me wait. I can say without doubt or qualification it was COMPLETELY worth that wait. Great look, great sizing and feel, ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING QUALITY of material and construction. Admittedly on the pricey side but worth every nickel and not just because the competition was cheap crap. This is a piece of functional, utilitarian history. It was my test run for buying from FireForce Ventures and they passed with flying colors. I'll be ordering more great merch come payday (Thursday). One recommendation to new U.S. customers, spring for the expedited shipping, it's money well spent either way but get you order MUCH faster.
