rated 5 of 5 stars This place is great. Very unique high quality items you will not find anywhere else. Had one of their down hats for a few years, and it is by far the warmest hat I've owned. I ripped it two years ago (my own fault), and the owner of the shop was nice enough to repair it for me free of charge. Really stands behind his products. I also have cold hands during winter, and so I got the Foldback Mitts. No more cold hands! And it's a great design. Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars The Black Rock Gear Original is a simple, functional, quality down beanie, deserving a place on everyone’s head. It gets my highest honors by being a part of my ultralight equipment for multiple thru-hikes/section-hikes this year. Testing Conditions: When I first received my Trailspace 2016 Top Reviewer beanie, I marveled at what a nice garment it is but also wondered when I would first have a chance to use it (being that I live in Florida). Turns out, I have worn it over 40 nights this past year… Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars At 3/4 of an ounce and ridiculously warm, how can you go wrong?

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

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

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
