This is an ideal solution for protection from the wind, rain, snow and sun in cold weather. The hat includes a wool flip down that covers the back of your head and your ears. It has kept me warm in temperatures down to 15°F.

Pros

  • Waterproofing is outstanding and re-treatable as it wears out.
  • Wool lining has been plenty warm for me down to 15°F
  • Materials and craftsmanship all receive top marks. I love this hat.

Cons

  • Not really breathable, though I don't think that's too much of an issue in cold weather.
  • Not ideal for athletic activity due to lack of breathability

When to use this hat:  This hat is simply outstanding for cold weather. I've comfortably used it from 15°F up to 32F for whole-day stretches at a time.  The only thing it needs is a chin strap. Guess what?  Filson offers that as an option! I recommend getting it with the strap, though it's not necessary.

When not to use this hat: When the temperature goes above freezing, it's time to take this hat off.  When the temp goes down below 20°F, it's likely time to start considering other options.  Also, if you're wanting to do something athletic at low temps, there are probably better solutions.

Hope this helps!  Happy Adventuring!
