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.
