MIR Apocalypse Cowl with Straps
Military Cowl / Scarf / Neck Warmer constructed from
military surplus by MIR.
SIZING: One Size Fits All.
Scarf is 100% soft Wool, cotton twill straps.
ABOUT THE DESIGN:
SHTRAFBAT , from the Russian term "Shtrafniye Battal'yoni"
meaning "Penalty Battalions", was the name for the penal
battalions that were drafted from various prisons and
camps around USSR during World War II. Inmates were told
that if they joined the army to fight the Germans and
help the Motherland, then their sentences would be
commuted and they would go free after the war. Needless
to say that after the war was won, Stalin ordered those
inmates who served in the SHTRAFBAT to be put right back
where they came from, the "Zona" (prison).
The Apocalypse Cowl is constructed entirely of genuine
military surplus. The scarf part is made from a U.S. Army
Issue wool scarf, double layered for extra warmth and
surprisingly soft on the skin. The straps are made from
German army cargo straps and are adjustable. This neck
warmer zips up in the front but can be put on without
unzipping it, as it is stretchy. The straps can be worn
open or closed.
Original MIR Skull Tag on the side.
