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 construction giving it added warmth and insulation.

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 construction 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 guerrilla 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; it does not itch, insulates and regulates temperature better, gathers even less nasty smells (and most smells vanish with simply airing out the cap). Of course, the catch is a higher price tag. If you can live with that, we strongly suggest grabbing one of these.

  • Material: 100% mulesing-free merino wool
  • Weight approx 430 g/m2. There's two layers of knit.
  • 19.5 micron.
  • Wool wash at 30° C (86° F).

Don't leave it in a wet lump. Reshape it gently while still damp. Using wool care products not mandatory, but recommended.

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

Made in Finland

Made by Agtuvi Ky in Finland, fine quality stuff, no third world child labor camp crap.

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.

Varmaan ihan kiva pipa, mutta oli lapsen päälle suunniteltu.

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.

Paras pipo ikinä!
Ostin tummanharmaan, ja väri on sama ku intissä aikanaan, hyvä, hyvä!
Istuu särmästi ja lämmittää kivasti.
Pisteet Lekalle huippupiposta!

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