        Cool - if you get one though, make sure not to have a red star on the forehead, that does look goofy.

          If you want to be like a normal Red Army soldier of 1941-45 forget about using of archaic helmets. Use SSh40 (well known to everyone helmet).

            The inner exchangeable collar (podvorotnichok) is designed to preserve your neck from irritation.

                it is not a problem in comparison to furuncles on your neck.

                  Was it actually stitched on, or was there some kind of fastener?

                    Stitched on, you have a needle and some white thread to switch it ewery morning.


                    The germans was much smarter, they had buttons sewn on so it was easy to switch their inner collar.

                      The same is in modern Russian Army. It is not too long procedure because long stitches are used.
