Hood (in Tatar — headboard) — woolen hood worn on the head of the Caucasian mountaineers and other Eastern peoples in protection from cold, rain and solar heat. In the Russian troops entered it was in 1862 and during the war of 1877-78. was so appropriate that he came to and tested in Western Europe. So, in 1881 the entire squad of French troops sent to Tunisia, was equipped with the bashlyks.
In the early twentieth century the bashlyks were made of special cloth sand color, with high content of camel's hair, thin and lightweight, well protected from wind and cold. In use this type of cloth was called "camel". Its greatest disadvantage was that it is very easy, much easier than other army cloth, damaged by moths; therefore, today a well-preserved original hood — a rarity. The difference between the officer's helmet was the covering cap of gold or silver braid, the color of the metal device.
In March 1913, after the introduction of the new uniforms, the bashlyks were officially abolished, however, in view of simplicity, cheapness and practicality continued to be used in 1914-1917
