Goose down is the lightest most effective insulation around. That's why Black Rock Gear created a down beanie hat using this material. These toppers are literally feature light, weighing less than an ounce and are designed and manufactured in Seattle, Washington.
The Blackrock Gear down beanie hats are also ridiculously warm and easy to stow! Keep one in your jacket pocket, the top of your pack or your glove compartment. A staple piece of gear on the PCT and AT, it’s a favorite among long distance hikers, day hikers, skiers and bikers alike.
These hats fit extremely well under a helmet. So if it’s a cold morning commute or a few more runs in the backcountry Blackrock hats compress down where they need to and loft where they can for a warmer layer than a traditional skull cap.
Buying BlackRock gear means you are helping to support local craftsmen and not large scale factories. The folks behind this fine business take pride in every piece they make and work to support you in making your everyday adventures a bit more comfortable.
*Sizing is important. See the sizing table on the specs tab. To measure your head use a fabric tape measure or a shoelace. Wrap it across your brow where you’d like the hat to sit. Go above your ears and around the back of your head. Pull it snug but not tight and take a measurement to the nearest quarter inch. In general most women fit a medium and most men fit a large. Custom XS, S and XXL sizes are available on request.
