warm ski hat?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Have an old Thinsulate-lined ski hat that's very warm, but finally time to part with it.

 

Ski shop had slim pickings for hats.  I don't want a helmet.

 

Didn't find any Thinsulate-lined hats, but found Spyder Courmayeur wool/microfiber lined hats online. 

 

Is this the best choice for a quality warm hat, or recommendations? 

 

Best site for selection-prices on good ski hats?

 

Thanks For Your Time-

Love my North Face hat.  My head is toasty warm no matter how cold it is. Its either a Bones Beanie or Jim Beanie.

I use New Era Cap "Pom Pom" or Beanie hats NFL licensed. Not only are the warm (fleece lined) they look great all while you represent your favorites NFL Teams!!

Mountain hardware is usually good stuff.

Sorry to hear you don't want a helmet. I've been wearing one since the early 1990's. My head is never cold.

Mind if I ask why you don't want a helmet?  When I made the switch I wish I had done it sooner.  My helmet is very comfortable, and keeps my head warm (although if windchill gets down around 0 I will wear a clava under it).  It has adjustable venting so if my head gets warm, I can get some airflow.  Just curious as to why it isn't an option.

 

Which shop in CNY are you looking at?

Agreed. I prefer hats as well. There are people who shred a lot harder than me that go for tuques as well. You can take a hat off and stow it in your pocket if you are ascending and get too hot. Try that with a helmet! I sweat like a pig so an extra dry hat is easy to carry. A Tuque is simple and good looking. Outdoor Research makes a really nice toque with a windstopper band around the rim that keeps it nice and warm without being too hot. I have had a couple of them and they are reasonably priced as well.

My Trapper sheepskin hat is warmer than my helmet.
