Down Beanie

Stumbled across the Black Rock hat the other day… At $59, it’s not the cheapest headwear around, but it sure looks the warmest!

For an amazing 0.7 oz (small) it actually beats out my current Mountain Hardware fleece hat.

Oh so tempting….

    I’ve had one since they were first put out. It’s warm for the weight, but I’m not so sure it’s better than say a double layer microfleece equivalent.

    I find my BLACK ROCK works very well as a second layer when in camp during my winter trips but I am reluctant to use it during the other seasons. I am concerned about sweating into the down and about washing it.

    My SMARTWOOL cuffed beanie is my primary insulating layer and it works well year round.
