The béret Vrai Basque 10 pouces (28cm diameter) in vert nocturne (dark green) is identical to the once famous Berrueta label, made by the former manufacturer Blancq-Olibet from Nay. A beret that was very popular with hikers and
trampers, outdoors enthusiasts, vintners, hunters and many more. It is also the beret used by the Belgian Chasseurs Ardennais; a mountain infantry regiment that -very rare in the military- wears Basque berets (with
the cabilliou in place), similar to the French Chasseurs Alpins.
These berets are now exclusively available through South Pacific Berets, in a One-Size headband-less version and with leather headband in a variety of sizes.
