Buy military berets online

That the beret is an accessory that is very often seen on military and police officers is probably nothing that comes as a new fact to most people. It's a classic tradition that goes way back.

With us you will find a wide range of specifically military types of berets in different colours.

How do you sprain a beret?

If you want to wear your military beret the right way, you should tuck it down towards your right ear. The easiest way to do this with a wool beret is to soak it in warm water. For example, take a hot shower with your beret on, then shape the beret by pulling it down over your right ear. After that, roll up the beret with the flap first and then put it down so it can dry.

How should a beret fit?

As previously mentioned, you should tuck the beret down towards the right ear. Then the beret should sit two fingers wide from the eyes.

When the neck straps are adjusted at the back, these can be sewn into the elastic so that the straps are not visible.

Berets as a military accessory

Berets can be seen as a collective name for many different models of caps with sprains. Then there are the classic berets that we see as military but which can also be used by, for example, police and security guards. It is not entirely unusual that berets have often come to be associated with elite associations such as the green berets in the United States.

The berets are not normally used in combat as they are neither camouflaged nor provide particularly good protection against the sun or cold. However, there are cases where combat troops have worn berets.

A classic military beret is the light blue UN beret. During the UN's first real peacekeeping operation which was in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, the UN soldiers needed something to show that the soldiers were not combatants in the ongoing conflict. Something was quickly needed that could clearly make it possible to distinguish who were combat soldiers in the conflict and who were UN soldiers. Therefore, the helmets were quickly repainted in light blue and light blue berets were brought out. These light blue helmets and berets have survived as a detail that shows that a soldier is precisely a UN soldier ever since.
