The Original

rated 5 of 5 stars At 3/4 of an ounce and ridiculously warm, how can you go wrong? I was lucky enough to get my Black Rock Gear The Original hat as part of the package of goodies I received from being one of the Top Reviewers of 2016 from the good people at Trailspace.com. I knew instantly this flyweight 3/4 ounce genuine goose down hat would have a permanent place in my backpack.  It wasn't until my recent Tahoe to Yosemite through hike that I got to try this baby out. For 16 straight days the minute we would hit… Full review

The Original

rated 5 of 5 stars Impossibly light and compressible. Good wind resistance and warmth. Hate how beanies make your head itch and tie your hair in knots? This may be your new favorite hat.  I received this beanie as a Trailspace prize.  I like hats and already have a ton, but this one is definitely unique.  I know of no other down beanie on the market.  Testing conditions: I wore mine on Mount Rainier on a day ski to Camp Muir in mid May. It is almost never windless here and this day it was 24-ish degrees (F) and… Full review

The Original

rated 2 of 5 stars Not a very good hat. Not as warm or as comfortable as a good wool beanie. This hat doesn't breathe well so it gets sweated up easy and is worthless. I love down, but not for hats. Look at merino/possum blend hats for something 10x as good as this down hat. Full review

The Original

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I wore this down hat in Colorado in sub-zero weather and my head FROZE. My little fleece hat is warmer. If you want a warm hat for really cold weather get the Mad-Bomber hat with leather and fur. You do not see ANYBODY in Alaska wearing these things for good reason! I definitely don't recommend this hat for really cold weather. It is a joke for what it costs. There is not nearly enough down in this thing and the people that are giving it a positive review must live in Southern California. Get a… Full review

Foldback Fingerless Mitt

rated 5 of 5 stars Soft, comfortable, warm mittens to layer over gloves or wear on their own. These fit on the large side in order to enable the easy layering over gloves. Gloves are just never warm enough, but then you slip these babies on and everything changes. Soft material, they fold down to nothing and they are light as a feather, but they do deliver in the warmth department. You can easily fold down the top half with the same hand that is wearing the mitten for ease in converting the mitten. Roomy fit mittens… Full review
