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.

Size info

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.

Mulesing free

All our merino wool clothing are 100% mulesing free!

Todella napakka pipo, kuten muutkin ovat todenneet. Ei heilu päässä. Ei ehkä niin lämmin kuin Lekan perusmerinopipo, mutta menee todennäköisesti paremmin taskuun. (En omista tuota speksien mukaan paksumpaa pipoa) Ja toisaalta nyt huomasin, että tämä mahtuu säädöllä varustetun lippalakin alle. Jolloin saan lipan suojan, lippalakin antaman tuulisuojan eristeen pinnalle ja kosteanakin mukavan merinovillaeristyksen. Metsäkuvioisen väritys on todella söpö!


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

Lämmin ja laadukas pipo. Pystyy käyttämään joko taitettuna tai suoristettuna. Itsellä päänympärys 60cm ja koko L sopiva.

It's warm, made in Finland and Tacticool. 12/10 Update* after owning this hat for about a month with average use some of the stitching is coming loose. Maybe my hat is an odd one out but I hope the next one I buy doesnt do the same D:

Hyvä myssy. L-kokoisena just sopiva isompipäiselle. Ei päästänyt aivoja jäätymään eikä kiehumaankaan Lapin laduilla ja auki rullattuna piti korvatkin mukavan lämpöisinä. Viimaisemmissa paikoissa piti toki täydentää takin hupulla. Talvikuvioinen pipo päässä kehtaa liikua kaupungillakin.

Soft and warm. I have a 61cm head, and the Large is a little tight, with not much hat left to double up. A true XL would be more comfortable and flexible; I’d buy two!

Tästä väristä kun löytyy tuo isompi koko, niin istuu todella hyvin. Taitettuna siisti, alas rullattuna peittää korvat. Passelin paksuinen eikä veny käytössä muodottomaksi.

Reserviläishommissa valtiolta olen saanut ns sissipipon kotisäilytykseen. Pipo on vain auttamatta todella pieni..

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.
