Finally a proper hoodie - in this case the price doesn't come from a big name, but rather from the material, which is thickish Merino wool, which is probably the best fabric ever. Oh, and we haven't forgotten to design the cut properly too. Whether you like to move on foot or two wheels, for the love of God buy this!

Good and affordable urban rucksack of our own design - partially, at least. Just enough different compartments, compact dimensions but expands to about 20 litres (even more with extra pouches). If you have a lot of stuff that has to be accessed all the time, this is the thing for you.

Proper good boxer shorts for an affordable price - these are more like the Common Man version of the Merino wool model we also sell. Being made of viscose, these have sort of poor man's versions of many of the good characteristics of wool. Hey, still beats cotton!

Särmä Worker Flat Cap, brown

Särmä Worker Flat Cap, brown

31.99 USD

A basic flat cap, and that's what's so nice about these; timeless colour and form, no flashy logos or ugly details. It's a hat you could wear with anything. At the same time this cap will demilitarize anything else you are wearing. Just add braces to your trousers and you look all ready for a proper bar fight!

We already made a superior hoodie out of Merino wool, but that stuff is expensive. For the plebs is available this cheaper option which retains the superb cut and features and while not as fancy as the woollen one, still works like that to a degree - at less than half the price! If you just need a damn well designed hoodie for casual use, this is the ticket.

B quality?

There are "B quality" hoodies listed in the size selection. The fabric of these B quality hoodies is a tad more airy and floppy feeling than on the regular stuff we sell, but it still has the same material contents. The perceived floppiness might be a good thing too depending on personal preferences, but it's not what we wanted. So, here's a one-off deal! It's still a great hoodie!

Form and cut

Slim fit, with long hem. Quality zipper on the front, with a flap on the backside to prevent it from making contact with the skin if you're not wearing anything under this. The collar is so high when zipped up that you really don't need a scarf of neck tube or whatever. The hood has drawcord tightening and is suitably roomy, but not overly so - it works as an underlayer when worn with a helmet during cold weather. Thumbholes on the sleeve cuffs, of course. Reinforced against wear, and can be rolled up if not needed.

Pockets

Sort of five pockets, all are roomy. Two hand warmer pockets (volume about one wine bottle each) and a kangaroo pocket on the back, which can be accessed from either side, good place for storing gloves, hats and other accessories. On the left sleeve you'll find a zippered pocket, roomy enough for any smart phone (Iphone 6 Plus, Oneplus One tai Samsung Note 2/3/4 etc.). Hell, you could probably fit a standard set of groceries in the pockets. The pocket lining is cotton fabric.

As is customary these days, the sleeve pocket is covered with velcro. This means you can slap on a patch of your choice (smart people put a reflector tab on it!).

The fabric

330 g/m2 blend: 42% cotton, 27% viscose, 26% polyester, 5% elasthane. The percentage of elasthane makes the fabric - you guessed it - just a tad elastic, allowing for free movement.

This blend still retains some of wool's nice features, like transferring moisture away from the skin, not being super nasty when wet and drying surprisingly quickly. All in all it's quite suitable for common use and still better than a full cotton fabric usually found on hoodies. Moreover, the inside face is terry style, i.e. very comfy.

Wash in 40 degrees Celsius. Hang dry.

Size info

Sizes in the dropdown box according to recommended user's height and chest circumference in centimetres. However the material is very forgiving - this should fit taller people too. If unsure, you can always pick a size larger for longer sleeves, at the cost of form fit of course. If you are a girl, we recommend taking the chest measurement below the boobs. Normal size women usually are well off with size X-Small.

Just in case we have provided the actual measurements of the garments for each size, see the chart below. Please bear in mind that the fabric still is very forgiving despite the given measurements!

Size Chest circumference Sleeve length Back length (from the base of the hood) Front length (from the base of the hood)
X-Small Regular 89 70 72 60
Small Regular 97 71 73 61
Medium Regular 105 72 74 62
Large Regular 113 73 75 63
X-Large Regular 121 74 76 64

Employee's comments

I don't really care about hoodies for some strange personal reasons. Once upon a time our company sent a delegation to Germany and I was a part of it. Dress code demanded the fabled Merino hoodie for our people, so naturally I tried to save a buck for the company and secretly picked the viscose hoodie, even a "B quality" one.

Now I'll set my cold hatred for these things aside for the moment and look at the garment as what it is. Well, it's a very practical piece of clothing. You got a load of good, closed pockets and the cut is nice. Didn't use the hood though, it makes you look like a junkie, but in an emergency it could have its uses. Viscose is actually completely adequate material for basic bumming around business and you tend to watch after it less than the expensive Merino wool too. If you like hoodies, I would recommend this, it's way better than the regular department store offerings and works nicely as an extra layer too if the weather gets chilly, keep it in your pack or something.

And the "B quality" is really a pretty strong word here, because in reality these are just fine. Save ten bucks, get one of these!

Tää rokkaa, mahtava vaate.
Omaan mieleen huppu on hieman liian pieni, tosin Nazgûl-tyylinen ratkaisu ei kaikkia viehätä

Ostin ittelleni lähinnä duunihuppariks, ja on toiminu siinä kyllä aivan älyttömän hyvin. Nopeasti kavunnu meikäläisen jokapaikan ykköshuppariksi. Sopii mihin tahansa tilaisuuteen. Ehkä seuraavissa Linnan juhlissa tää on jollain päällä? Taskuihin voi kätkeä vaikka ja mitä ja istuu päälle erittäin mukavasti.

Pari kehuvaa sanaa kerroin perheelle tästä ja nyt meillä kaikilla on tämmöset.

Ja koska aina pitää olla vähän negatiivinen niin sanotaan että nauhat ovat ehkä vähän liian pitkät omaan makuun. Vähän solmin piuhoja uudelleen jolla tuli jopa ehkä vähän siistimmän näkönenkin!

Tuli ostettua tämä kun en kokenut merinovillaversiolle tarvetta ja hintakin on kohtuullinen. Leikkaus on erittäin hyvä, ehkä jopa paras ikinä, pitkäselkäinen kun olen. Ainoa miinuspuoli on huppu, joka on mallia tonttu ja siten jopa hieman nolo. Mieluusti näkisin tästä 2.0 version jossa hupussa ei olisi säästelty kangasta.

Hyvä huppari mut taskupussien teko puuvillasta oli kyllä really poor move, itellä tuli toiselta puolelta avaimet läpi varmaan alle kuukaudessa. Yksi tapa kiertää tämä on tietty, että älä laita sinne taskuihin mitään terävää tai sitten käytä niitä hupparin sisätaskuja, koska niissä on tuplakangas sentään. Tai siis kaksi kerrosta sitä samaa puuvillakangasta kuitenkin. Sit kans en tiedä mitä on ajateltu kun se tasku siihen vasempaan hihaan on tehty, koska vaikka se onkin pieni niin olisihan siihen kiva käsi saada sisään. Voin kuitenki suositella tuotetta kuhan ottaa nämä seikat huomioon, koska kaikki muu hupparissa vaikuttaa onnistuneen hyvin.

En nyt muista ostinko kakkoslaatua vai en, mutta malli mahtava, materiaali ei kovin mahtava. Täytyy tilata se merinovillainen.

UPDATE: Lost my keys because a line of stitching has left a hole in the pocket. Wouldn't mind so much if I had bought 'B' grade.

Dammit, I thought it would make me look like the guy in the photo. It doesn't.
Great item of clothing though, not too hot, not too cold, and you can indeed fit many bottles in the pockets.

Owned one of these for a year and wore it regularly. So far no major wear. The slim fit is nice and comfortable especially in colder weather but the downside is that the sleeves are rather tight and my arms aren't that large even if I wish they were. A little strange considering other varusteleka products tend to have extremely roomy sleeves. Maybe an extra inch of material for the sleeves when you guys update this?
But other than that minor complaint, it's fantastic.
