Recent Winter Hat Reviews

Black Rock Gear The Original

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A super lightweight, comfort-focused winter beanie that goes with me on every cold-weather excursion. My favorite use has become as a sleeping hat in the tent when the overnight temps are chilly. Fit and Comfort:I have a big, bald head, measuring 24 1/4 inches or 61.6 cm or 7 3/4, depending on which measurement you use, so hats can be a bit tricky for me. The Original BlackRock Hat, size Large fits pretty well and is very comfortable on the head. No itching, no readjusting. This was a freebie,… Full review

Sherpa Adventure Gear Renzing Hat

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An extremely well made beanie that excels in cold conditions. If you live in the mountains, or walk in the mountains, there's about a 104% chance you've got a substantial stash of beanies. Some are probably for function and others might be for style. For me, the Renzing (and most Sherpa beanies) hits on both. I have an older version and I believe they come with just one band now. I like the look. More 'working' than "relaxing." And while I'm not big into logos I like this one. Subtle. SAG beanies… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Docklands Reversible Beanie

rated 5 of 5 stars 100% Merino wool is the SHIZ!!! Comfort across a wide range of temperatures, merino wool is my first choice for what's next to my skin—caps, sweaters and base layers. Mountain Hardwear is my favorite apparel line and I've many, from down jackets to pants, shirts, and sweaters to prove it. Full review

Black Rock Gear The Original

rated 5 of 5 stars The comfort, weight, and warmth have me grabbing this hat before any of my others. I'm starting to miss my old head covers; I don't see them much any more. Don’t let the price tag deter you. It has become my go-to hat for all sorts of outings. Because this is a cottage company out of Seattle, you will pay a few extra bucks to keep things made in America. That said, I use my down hat so much that I’ve gotten the price tag's worth of use out of it and then some. I can’t say that for all of my… Full review

Jack Wolfskin Stormlock Shapka

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Heavy winter hat made for extremely cold weather. Offers circular protection from the wind. While this hat has the traditional design, the materials are modern and top-tier. Has limited use due to its warmth. I purchased this hat about five years ago for use on occasions when the temperature drops far below -10°C (14°F), and my other hats offer very little protection against cold wind. I wear a black head band beneath the hat for better protection The name of this model means simply “a hat”… Full review

Black Rock Gear The Original

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

Black Rock Gear The Original

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

Black Rock Gear 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 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

Black Rock Gear 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
