Put a lid on heat lost off the top of your head with this insulated Outdoor Research Wintertrek Hat. It's made with windproof GORE WINDSTOPPER® fleece fabric and features a flat-seam construction along the contrast ear band. Outdoor Research utilized a classic four-panel construction that easily adapts to most head sizes. Unlike most beanies and knit caps out there, the Wintertrek Hat has a distinct hidden zippered pocket on the ear band that accommodates your hotel room key card or folded currency. One important note: When sized properly, the Outdoor Research Wintertrek Hat covers only a portion of your ears--the fabric doesn't extend to your lower ear lobes. This is a concern among some alpine and winter outdoor enthusiasts, although others tend to combine their Wintertrek Hat with a headband or insulated, lightweight ear protection.

Disappointing fit
March 08, 2011

Unlike all my other OR gear, this hat just did not work for me. With a 23" head size I started with a size large that initially fit well. It quickly stretched with wear having virtually no elasticity. After a few weeks of regular wear, it was no longer snug enough to keep out even moderate wind around the bottom edge. I figured I should have ordered a smaller one to begin with so I got a medium. That was more snug to start with but quickly stretched to be as loose as the bigger size. Ended up returning both in frustration.

Cons: Wears quickly, Bad design

Altrec Beanie A Must Have
April 18, 2011

I had this Outdoor Research beanie for over a year and lost it on a spring hike this month. I immediately replaced it. It is a must have for my pack. I live in Santa Fe and in the late afternoon on a mountain hike it can suddenly turn cold and windy. This beanie won't blow off and provides excellent protection from the elements. I wear it with the bottom turned up and if need be lower it all the way for ear protection. It takes up no room in a pack and is always a travel companion.

Pros: Build quality

Another superb OR product

Favorite Winter Hat
March 19, 2011

This hat is warmer than others that I've tried because it is made of windstopper material. It's the perfect beanie. I bought this as a replacement for one that I lost.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Great head protection in winter.
December 10, 2009

I bought an OR WINDSTOPPER hat as a gift and was sufficiently impressed that I want one as well. Living near Lake Michigan the wind can be very strong and protecting the head and ears is important in the winter.

Great Beanie
November 26, 2011

It is a great hut, very warm, and comfortable. The windstopper works pefectly. Maybe the fit is not as perfect as I would like, but anyway it's still a great benie.

Pros: Performance

Sizes run small
March 27, 2010

I ordered this hat in a small, since most hats are too big for me. However, it turned out to be too tight and didn't go all the way over my ears. I will either be exchanging it for a medium or for a different style.

Outstanding wind hat
March 16, 2010

I'm out in it every day walking the dogs and this is the best winter hat I have ever had so far. No wind gets through this thing, very warm and comfy. Love it.

Great Hat
December 21, 2009

This hat fits true to size and is very warm!
