I saw the following -
Filson Hats: Navy USA-Made 60198 NA Merino Wool Cuff Water-Resistant Cap
The cap/hat is described as Filson hat. Is this a brand-name or the type of hat ? If it's not the hat/cap type, what are such caps/hats called ?

Filson (C.C. Filson Co.) is a company that sells many types of outdoor hats.
The particular style of hat you pictured in your question goes by several different names.
Here in Canada it is known as a toque or tuque. Even though other terms are in existence up here, the only phrase I really seem to hear up here is toque. Except for Canada the term primarily used for this hat is a knit cap.
The Knit cap originally of wool is designed to provide warmth in cold weather. Typically, the knit cap is of simple, tapering constructions, though many variants exist.
The Filson Company uses the term Wool Cuff Cap for this particular knit cap.
Yes FILSON is a company. That is commonly called a stocking cap.
That is kind of expensive for cap. But it is a nice cap.
I would comment, but I need reputation for that.
That is a 'Touque'.
the proper spelling. A significant amount of untrustworthy votes on CBC'S webpoll agree on the spelling of touque.
Really, just spell it however you like.
In the United States it's also commonly called a "beanie".
