This is a Russian style cap with ear flaps that can be tied up to the crown of the cap, which is often made of fur, or tied at the chin to protect the ears from the cold.

Though ushankas are a distinctly Russian hat, indeed, the stereotypical Russian is seen to wear one, the wearing of fur caps of similar design is common throughout China, North Korea, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. It is also worn widely in North America and Canada.

It is not considered masculine among Russian men to wear the ear flaps down, though a stereotypical dustman is usually portrayed wearing his ushanka with flaps untied, one pointing down and one up.

In the English-speaking world, it is sometimes refered to as a shapka. However, this usage is not specific to the Ushanka, but is rather a Russian language word meaning simply "hat". Ushanka literally translates as "ear-flaps hat".
Ushanka hat is well known to everybody who has experienced freezing cold.

Russian fur cap with ear flaps that can be tied up to the crown of the cap, or tied at the chin to protect the ears, jaw and lower chin from the cold. A good choice when your freezing your ass off...

An ushanka is a russian/soviet/slavic hat that is beautiful and fluffy. The hat can unfold to make your ears warm. Only gods like boris, antoni, and other slavs can wear it correctly.
Random person: did you see that ushanka boris was wearing? It looks beautiful!
Random slav: its beautiful because boris is the king of slavs

(n) Slang for taint hair, most often by unshaven Russian women, bulky in nature, and neglected sexually by their husbands. It is often noted that the stench is particularly severe.
Ivan walked into his home, out from the cold. Immediately he smelled a foul and rotting odor, much like Pig Pen's urethra. Noticing the half-put away vibrator, he immediately realized and suspected his wive, Svetlana, had not shaved in months, resulting in a disgusting, warm, and wet Ushanka. How would he know though? He hasn't tapped that in ages.
