Harmaja, (60°06.30′N, 24°58.53′E)
an island and light house in the Baltic sea, outside the inhabited sea fortress Suomenlinna, Helsinki, Finland.
In winter times, days of Polar night, when the weather gets freezing cold and the sea ice up, cold winds blow chilling the lighthouse keepers bones, it is better to wear a hat like this, tightly knitted, stops the winds, keeps the warmth inside and cold outside.

This is a great man hat.
