  • Waterfowl : Waterfowl Marsh
(15 Reviews)

The Boreal Beanie is the warmest hat in our Waterfowl line, ideal for long blind sessions at extreme latitudes. The 100% windproof GORE-TEX INFINIUM with WINDSTOPPER® shell protects your forehead and dome, but is left out over the ears for uninhibited hearing. The remarkably soft Berber liner and 60g/m2 Primaloft Silver Insulation throughout lock in warmth.

This thing is WARM! I don’t typically wear this until it’s in the mid 20’s. It’s kept me warm in -15 hunts with no issues! 10/10

BEST thing I ever bought! Very warm! Wether I’m going down river or sitting in the blind. I’ll be wearing this amazing product!

This beanie is worth every hard earned penny. It is comfortable and lives up to the hype. Hunted in winds with 65 mph gusts this season and I didn't feel a thing. I do where my Dakota while motoring into spots and setting out decoys, once hunkered down in the blind I make sure the dog is ready grab my calls and switch to my boreal beanie and load the gun. Just another great fit into the system I own once the temps start dropping.

This was the first piece of sitka I ever bought. It took me a while to convince myself to spend this much money on a beenie but I had to try it. This is hands down the warmest hat I have ever owned in my life, its kind of ridiculous how warm it actually is. Its a little bulky looking and if you have a big melon it may not fit, I wear a 7 1/2 hat and it fits like a glove. Doing any sort of exertion your gonna sweat in this thing, so get a lighter hat to walk in or place decoys with, but once you sit down on those cold mornings pull this bad boy out and never look back....... You will not find a warmer hat on the market!!!!!

When the conditions are at there worst this keeps the wind, sleet and snow at bay while waiting on the next pass of green! Great fit!

Warmest hat I’ve ever worn. You will not get cold. Don’t walk to blind in it or you will be sweating. Prefer the lighter beanie for walking and then put this one on once I’m in blind and the cold temperatures set in.

Hats don't get much warmer than this. Don't try to walk around in it, you will sweat.

Warmest hat I've ever used hunting. Your head cannot get cold in this hat. Highly recommend for anyone who hunts in very frigid weather!

WAY TOO SMALL! It looks like such a warm hat for the bitter cold we hunt in Montana, just doesn't fit those of us with larger heads. I would purchase the entire Sitka lineup of headgear if they would make stuff that fit folks with large heads (7 1/2 is what I wear).

Warm, outstanding product. I was cold during an early morning Canada hunt in November until I put this hat on. A real "game changer". Worth every cent I paid for it. I highly recommend it!

Amazing. This beanie has everything I've ever wanted in a warm waterfowl hat, and more. I have a larger head and worry about my ears being covered with hats like this. This hat was able to cover my ears and some. Being windstopper and primaloft, it is the warmest piece of gear on the market. I used this hat in below 0 degree temperatures with harsh winds and not once got cold. If you're looking for a hat to keep you VERY warm, look no further.
