Alpine hunter beret

Unlike the Basque beret, the Alpine hunter's beret is wider to offer better protection against the elements, such as snow or rain, but also for those who fear the sun.

It was for all these reasons that Alpine hunter units officially adopted the name in 1891, a decision taken directly by the Ministry of War at the time.

This beret quickly became their emblem, and its warm wool and larger size (12 inches or 33.6 cm) enabled them to protect their feet while on guard duty in the mountains.

This alpine hunter beret, also known as a tarte, is made in the Basque Country from 100% wool. The wool has been treated to make it waterproof, so you're protected in all types of weather.
