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

The knit is firm and the fit is best on a 7 1/4" (Medium or 58 cm) head. If you have a larger head, we suggest to leave the cap unfolded. The Särmä Merino Watch Cap is more relaxed when it comes to size.

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.

Material: 100% mulesing-free merino wool, weight approx 430 g/m2. Wool wash in 30° C. Using wool care products not mandatory, but recommended.

All of our Särmä brand merino wool products are mulesing free!

Pretty shallow cap. if you wan't to cover the ears, you need to fully roll it down, whicht looks crappy. Looks and quality are good though.

Mahtava pipo kaikille keleille, paitsi kovimmille pakkasille ja helteille. Ohkaisena ja merinovillaisena hengittää hyvin ja mahtuu esim. pyöräilykypärän alle. Kovalla viimalla varsinkin korviin käy kylmä pipon läpi, mutta silloin kannattaa vetää huppua päähän. Erittäin hintansa väärti.

Omassa käytössä usein tämä päässä liikkeessä, pysähtyessä sitten kaivelee repusta karvalakin.

Tampereen konttikaupasta ostin ja eikä kaduta metriäkään, aivan ihana päähine. Halutessani saan korvatkin hienosti piiloon tuulelta ja tuiskulta.

Nämä ovat oikeasti pieniä. Vaikka näitä läpimärkänä venyttää niin ei hyvä tule koon 60 päähän. Omassa kokemuksessa intti on viime vuosina päivittänyt pipojen mittoja kookkaammiksi ja myssyt joiden lapuissa vilkkuu vuosilukuja kuten 13 peittävät korvat reilusti. Leka voisi mitoittaa niitten mukaan.

Ostin tummanharmaan, ja väri on sama ku intissä aikanaan, hyvä, hyvä!

Aivan loistava päähine. Ei pipon kuulukaan korvia peittää, niillä keleillä (täällä etelässä siis noin joka neljäs vuosi) käytetään järeämpiä päähineitä.

Aivan liian pieni, jotta voisi mitenkään järjellisesti pitää päässä. Vaikka en omaa edes mitään isoa päätä. Materiaali on kyllä hyvää

SA-sissipipon kanssa tuntuu olevan samoissa mitoissa. Näin vanhasta muistista esikuvansa ei ollut aivan yhtä hengittävä, joka on siis vaan plussa tälle merinovillaiselle. Mutta kyllä silti liikkuessa tämän kanssakin hiki tulee.

Musta menee vielä hätäiseen ainakin näin isompipäiselle beaniesta, kun jättää taitoksen tekemättä.

Too small.

Kauheen pieni.. vaihtoon meni.
Mutta jos saisi isona, niin menisin ressu-hommissa jakotavaran edelle = yhdenmukaisuus ja laatu tuotteessa hyvät!

Bought one, and it was all I expected it to be : good :-)
My wife made me buy another one ( as I apperently look good in it ), and is forcing me to buy yet another.... ( just in case they run out of them :-) So, I reluctantly comply. Yep, for the first time in decades, I'm proudly wearing a woolly hat, never liked to wear them....untill now that is ! ! ! Will put one in each jacket I use for a specific reason ( different colors, different functions...)

Yes! So good! So cheap! Good quality! Nice size and fit. It's a quite heavy and very warm cap. All you'll to get your head through the winter.

Tosi hyvä pipo, mutta harmi että maastokuvioituja pipoja on isommissa kooissa, mutta ei tätä.
Ei sovi lähellekään koko 60 päähän

Those Sissipipo seem to not mind frozen off ears or have very small heads.



The small Sizing is an issue for me, but I can't fault the Material nor quality of the hat. The red is nice and bright too.

Great hat! I like mine with my 7-1/4 inch head, I think 59 cm? It is "shallow" I suppose if you did not expect a watch-like cap and wanted something that could cover your head twice with loads of soft fluffy goodness like a bunny rabbit.....wait...this is a thin, but warm, form fitting very nicely made watch cap. I used it a lot already. One down side I will say after use is the seam across the mid section of the hat. Use one piece of fabric and the hat would be much better IMHO. At $20 I still wear it a lot in the winter. great fabric, no complaints.

Omani sopii mainiosti 58-kokoiseen nuppiini. Hieman syvempi se voisi olla; niin, että noin 5 sentin taitoksella saisi korvien yläreunat sentin-pari pipon alle - jo se lämmittää kummasti.

Jostain syystä ainakin minun pipossani on sisäpuolen pesu- ym lappu etupuolella. Kun on tottunut siihen, että lappu kuuluu niskan puolelle, pipo menee helposti päähän takaperin, jolloin sauma näkyy taitoksessa. Liekö yksilövika? Omistan myös vastaavan, aikoinaan MPY:ltä/Inttistoresta ostetun NatureWild-laputetun sissipipon, merinovilllaa sekin. Lekan pipon materiaali tuntuu sileämmältä ja miellyttävämmältä. Ps. Katselen aina silloin tällöin myös englanninkielisiä tuoteselosteita. Mielestäni Ranger Cap olisi parempi nimitys kuin Commando Cap , Ranger on lähempänä suomalaista sissiä...

Too small or you have to roll it down. Good quality of course, but think twice.... may be the watch cap could be a better option for a standard winter cap. Anyway, stars should have been 5. If this cap is your style, it is a top product. I have used it a lot. Really a lot. Never washed and always nice, clean feeling and fresh. Unfortunatelly I lost it and I went now for a watch cap. I prefer it. Ah, and I actually WOULD RECOMMEND to a friend.

Todella hyvä pipo, jos haluaa näyttää deegulta. Korvien päälle tämä pipo ei mene, mutta itse siitä juuri pidänkin.
