Fantastic, hunt in Michigan with it when it’s -20 f and don’t feel a bit cold. Excellent product

This is LITERALLY the best winter hat I’ve ever had. So warm. So soft. It’s the perfect hat for a Vermont winter day. The wind doesn’t stand a chance of getting through. This is my first Sitka product, but if the whole line of clothing is as good as this hat, I’ll be buying more. GREAT JOB Sitka!

Very nice hat if you don't have a big head. It fits with nothing else on, but I like to wear a ball cap with balaclava and beanie on. It was too small with this setup. It doesn't quite cover the bottom of your ears.

This is the warmest hat I own. Paired with the Stratus beanie, it's a great option when the temps drop a bit too low for comfort in the Stratus. The only downside is (compared to the Stratus) is that you can't hear as well. The price you pay to sit for longer, I suppose...

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.

Big and comfy. Blocks the wind and feels great on your head. Love mine!

The best beanie hands down a super star...and when its freezing with high winds no one cares how big your head looks

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 is huge!

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.
