Got my Afghan-war era surplus Afghanka hat. Looks great! My wife says it is real sharp; I shaped it like a Soviet "Indiana Jones" kind of fedora look.

I'll probably replace the thin plastic hat band on the outside with a leather one. But the brim is perfect for outdoor hiking and work in the sun, and most people only get those Mao-style hats when they buy a "commie" hat. Mine has character. I'll try to post pictures sometime.

It'll look good when I ride my Ural motorcycle, eh? Anyone know how much were these actually worn in the Afghan campaign?

It is comfortable and I am satisfied; I'll order more stuff in the future.

They were worn all the time, almost every photo of Afganistan I have here show them in frequent use
