We'll know soon enough.  What's the gestation period for a Yukon cap? 
What's it for a cat?  You never know, there might have been a reach around of some sort.

Pretty quick.  29 days.  http://www.nationaltrappers.com/muskrat.html  And up to 5 litters per year.    :o

  To be fair though there is issued poly type stuff that one can wear in the field that takes up less room under the helmet.

The issued poly stuff is not very warm though, even under the helmet.

I disagree as I find it too warm once you get moving, but just great if you have to have your head out while crew commanding or sitting around on OP. But that is just my opinion...

My brain must not be generating enough BTUs to heat my head, I guess.  >:D

While judging by both our profiles, we both only have one brain together after the lobotomy so we are doing fine..

Same as a Tribble.

Uh-oh!

"There must be thousands of them!"
"Hundreds of thousands."
"One million, seven hundred seventy-one thousand, five hundred sixty-one. That's assuming one fur cap, multiplying with an average litter of ten, producing a new generation every twelve hours over a period of three days–"
"And that's assuming that it got here three days ago–"

On second thought, we may now have found a way to solve the debt crisis! Sell off the caps, and recover millions.  Who said uniform procurement was a waste of money?

got mine!!  Looked at the size and wondered XL really??  Too big.  Went with recommended size based on beret size of 7 3/8.  Oh well maybe I can get the right size by the time it gets cold again.

Now a question - what in the world is the front flap for??? To cover your face when facing a firing squad?

I took a picture of it flipped down and posted it just to make a "caption this!" joke.  There were some good ones.

Got mine about two weeks ago, wayyyyyy too small.  Ordered a medium and it came extra tiny.  Called them up and told them it was small.  I sent it back and less than a week later, got a large size one, just fits.

Got mine in time for Christmas dinner. I suggest using the sizing guide on the logistik website to figure out what size to order, as the sizes are a little skewed in my opinion.

Actually I'm impressed with them.  Good quality leather by the look, sheepskin lined and they fit nicely too.  Will see how good the tread is next winter.  Will be great for shoveling outside and other small trips.

Not quite, I hate those shoes.  Honestly, these are pretty respectable.

Hi all,

Do we know if these are a once in a lifetime, or once a year item?

Definitely not once a year.  I don't think it shows up in my LU profile even if I go to Sales order.
