Original Black Rock Hat

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

Original Black Rock Hat

rated 5 of 5 stars The Black Rock Hat is a 900-fill Goose Down Beanie that became my new best friend during the Winter of 2014. Though price is a consideration, I have found it to be worth every penny. When I told my wife I was buying a down beanie with my Christmas money, she said, “That’s nice dear.” When the bank statement arrived, she freaked a bit.

Foldback Fingerless Mitt

rated 5 of 5 stars The warmth of a mitten with the dexterity of a glove. No more cold hands! Great for skiing, snowshoeing, and cold weather hiking/backpacking. Light as a feather.

The "foldback" design of theses mitts lets me have it both ways. Just pull back the end of the mitt when you need your fingers. Their mittens are… Full review

Original Black Rock Hat

rated 5 of 5 stars I do not understand the above post at all, that originally rated it low. This is an awesome hat and keeps my bald head warm down in the single digits.  Warmest hat I own. Very compact and lightweight. Has ample amounts of loft in my opinion. Full review

Hadron Hat

rated 5 of 5 stars If you are looking for one of the lightest down-filled hats on the market, the Black Rock Gear Hadron is likely the one you are going to want to buy. It is a lighter version of the Original designed for those who are true gram counters. A few years ago I bought a down hat from a company called Black Rock Gear which has turned out to be one of very few items that has gone with me on every single hiking trip that I have been on in the last two years. It was called, simply enough, The Black Rock Hat. Full review
