reesetee commented on the word ushanka
Ah. This might help, from Wikipedia:"In the English-speaking world, it is referred to as a shapka (шáпкa), from the Russian language word for 'hat.' Ushanka literally translates as 'ear-flaps hat.'"But you'd know better than I, since I know this much | | about Russian.

Looks like both are right. I just remember shapka from my Russian classes.
It is--I think that's the "English" word for these hats, bilby. See here.
Hmmm. I thought this was a shapka.
A Russian fur cap with ear flaps that can be tied up to the crown of the cap or under the chin to protect the ears from cold.
