Actually this may be more of a question for the re-enactors, in the west there is a style of hat known as a "Montero", a sort of peaked cap that can be adapted to give a hooded cover for ears, mouth and neck (the top folds down a bit like a cross between an American duck-hunter and a ski mask).
The question is, is there an eastern equivalent, and if so, what is it called?

If there are any reenactors on here who have one, where did you get your pattern to make it?

Ah, the divisive montero. Actually you can find something similar in the Danish-Norwegian musketeer set; it was called a kabuss (kabuds, kapusj or in Swedish karpus – all derived from the Italian cappuccio) and was part of the standard equipment for Norwegian soldiers paid for by the Danish king until the end of the union. Something similar was also popular in the Caucasus, where it's called a bashlik.

Thank you. I had always thought the karpus was a later style.

Next question would be if any reenactors can recommend a pattern for a karpus or a bashlik
