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!

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.

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

The Original

rated 5 of 5 stars The best of the best. Handmade with care in the USA by a small business. Excellent customer service. Crazy warm and soft. Does not squeeze your head. If you are serious about keeping warm and comfortable and are sick of hats not doing their job, this is the product for you. First, it is made right here in the USA by a very small company. You are supporting a small business and supporting someone who believes in his product and will give you great customer service. The fit is generous and the hat… Full review

The Original

rated 5 of 5 stars This is simply the warmest, most comfortable, most durable, lightest beanie available at any price. I now own two of them, and I will buy another if my older one ever dies. I bought my first original Black Rock hat two years ago. I have worn it on several extended backpack trips to high elevation cold, and it has always kept me warm. It is, of course, 900+ fill goose down, and that's not just a sales gimmick. It is sewn with quilts, or baffles, to keep the down in place, but you notice no cold seams… Full review
