Beyond the Layers - Athlete Jim Hole Jr.

In the deep winter freeze of the Alberta Bowzone, where late November temps can reach -40F, there are two considerations legendary whitetail outfitter and SITKA Athlete Jim Hole, Jr. prioritizes: keeping warm and completely silent to mimic the stealth and patience of an owl perched in a tree.

Should be called the Fantastic Beanie - finally had some cold enough weather to justify wearing this this year. Hunted all the way down to zero with howling wind hung out in a treestand, my nugget stayed toasty warm and comfortable, the windstopper really does just that.

I have bought a lot of different hats over my years of hunting. Nothing compares to this. It is unbelievably soft, comfortable, and keeps your head warm all day. This was one of my first Sitka items purchased and now I am hooked.

This beanie is warm! It is big, but it is warm and windproof. Feels real nice on an older guy's balding head in frigid temps. I usually wear the Stratus beanie, but I was happy to see that Sitka came out with something a bit warmer for those frigid temps. I do find the fabric on the back of the hat a bit noisy while turn my head back and forth from rubbing on collars. Not a loud noise, but really annoying after awhile. Also, the camo seems to have a lot of lighter color in it on mine.

Super warm yet breathable if that makes sense. Be warned though you will most definitely look like you are guarding a palace for the queen of England.....it is huge!
