Splinter camo cap made by "Replika" in Russia. Fabric has water-repellent impregnation from the inside. 2 pairs of ventilation holes. Olive artificial silk lining.

Visor has standart lenght (6-7 cm, not shortened). Visor insert is made of soft, conformable and resilient material that is water-resistant. The visor is impossible to break down. It keeps its shape when fully bended. And when you bend it back it will become straight almost with no traces. 

Splinter camo caps were not officialy produced for the Wehrmacht. But some soldiers ordered them privately. They could be made from Zeltbahn (tent) cloth or more lightweight fabric taken from camo smocks or winter parkas. Private makers coult take a standart M43 cap as a model or sometimes tropical or SS models.
