Särmä Commando Cap, Merino Wool, Camo
The Finnish army "commando cap" is far more than just any woolly watch cap, it's something of a Finnish military tradition and very functional too, the double layered constrution giving it added warmth and insulation.
Unlike most wool caps these are made with a double layered construction, the end result is far more insulating than the standard one layer style, a neat feature in extreme cold. Still as these don't have any membranes or such the wool breathes naturally, meaning that even though warm these are not too hot or sweaty like many modern caps with Windstopper etc. All in all a very classic and functional design!
This is modeled after the famous Finnish Army Sissipipo, or "sissy cap". The heritage comes from sissies, who are the most special commando-ranger troops in the Finnish military, true forest men sent into the woods with just a puukko, bare teeth and an assault rifle with one magazine, capable of living off the land and waging 30 years of guerilla warfare against the ever present threat of Russian invasion.
Because of the bit less flexible weave we decided to make these in two sizes. Medium fits head size up to 57-58 cm, Large is best for bigger noggins. We drew the line at 62, but this will probably stretch enough for an even bigger head if necessary.
Quality merino wool
Wool is super. Merino wool is even better; does not itch, insulates and regluates temperature better, gathers even less nasty smells (and most smells vanish with simply airing out the cap). Of course the catch is a higher pricetag. If you can live with that, we strongly suggest grabbing one of these.
Wool weight about 410 g/m2.

Pakkasta -12, keskituuli 4 m/s = WindChill -19. Kyllä oli hiihtäjän hyvä hiihdellä Lekan Sissipipo päässä, ei tarvinnut huppua miettiä.

BTW, my little nephews and my granddaughter refers to this as "The Cow Hat", as the snow camo to them looks just like that animal. I really don't care what it looks like, all I know is it's one of the warmest winter hats I've ever owned. Period.

Tämä taas vaikuttaa pikaisen hypistelemisen jälkeen sopivan isolta, lämpimältä ja maastoon katu-uskottavalta :)!
Tätä tosiaan saa isompana L-kokoisena, joka on jonkin verran isompi kuin Särmän vihreä (testattu on) tai Puolustusvoimien sissipipo.
Toiminnallisessa ressu/intti-actioniin sopiva hattu.
