NativesOutdoors White Shell Mountain Beanie

I'm a sucker for mountain ridges, topo lines, and the color blue—so this reversible mountain beanie from NativesOutdoors hits a whole lot of high points for me. I bought the White Shell Mountain Beanie six months ago, and despite getting it at the start of summer, I've managed to wear it camping, skate skiing, and hiking in the snow, rain, and wind so far. And it's not even winter yet. This beanie was an easy addition to my hat roster. Plus, $10 of my purchase went to charity. I wear beanies whenever… Full review

Kora Shola 230 Esker Hat

Beanie whose main unique feature is that it is made out of 100 percent yak wool. Very fine knit wool is less coarse than either of my merino wool beanies. Double layer knit wool cap fits snugly, is low profile, provides nice warmth, and wicks moisture really well. A very nice option for being active in cooler weather. After a discussion on Trailspace about Kora, a company that sells layers and other clothing made of yak wool, I decided to try out this hat. Frankly, I was hesitant about buying one… Full review

Norse Projects Lambswool Beanie

A simple stylish hat made from natural fibres which provide very effective, if somewhat itchy, insulation on cold days. I was a bit reluctant to buy a beanie made from lambswool as I remember from my days in the Fire and Rescue Service that wool is very itchy. However, in my determination to buy a garment made from natural fibres as opposed to oil-based ones I thought I'd take the risk. The hat is a good fit for me and l like the style. I mainly wear it with the bottom folded over but in milder… Full review

Fjallraven Byron Hat Thin

A great looking hat made from natural fibre that is just that little bit thinner for when you need to warm your head without cooking it. Provides just the right amount of warmth and wicks well to keep you from feeling too clammy I have worn my Fjallraven Byron Thin at various times when the temperature has dropped but I am still active and working up a sweat. I run really hot so some hats are actually too warm and I soon feel hot and bothered. Not so with this hat. I can walk comfortably, attend… Full review

Black Rock Gear The Original

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

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

Black Rock Gear The Original

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

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

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
