A kasket is a Russian cap, somewhat similar to a combination cap, but made of felt. It has a crown, a band and peak. At the beginning of the 20th century, many Russian Jews wore this cap as part of their dress.

In the animated film An American Tail, the main character Fievel's trademark hat, given to him by his father, is a blue kasket.
