A roaring fire, glass of bourbon, and the Outdoor Research Whiskey Peak Beanie are all you need to stay cozy when you're posted up in a remote cabin in the wilderness.

light, warm and it fits!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this for a few seasons now for camping, hiking, skiing, paddle boarding, etc., and in all sorts of foul weather it has performed very well. Very warm, especially for the weight. Blocks a good amount of wind. Fits smaller heads- my noggin' is about 22" circumference and this hat is perfect.

Russel, thank you for this review! I love this hat and love the "heritage" look about it as well. Thank you for writing!

Gotta love boiled wool

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've got a Whiskey Peak I bought myself last year that I usually only wear when the weather is in the thirties or below. This thing is downright toasty on my noggin! This past Christmas I bought another one for my twin brother but apparently his noggin is the size of a basketball and it wouldn't fit. I kept it of course because it fits my wee head perfectly. I ended up getting him a merino beanie from Ibex.

This is such a great hat - perfect blend of function and style! Enjoy it!

不错的 帽子

    做工不错,戴着也挺舒适,就是没有防风层,比较担心抗风性!

    Thank you for the review - agreed, this is a great hat. The boiled wool does a good job at wind resistance, as you mention, and it's also really warm!

    Enjoy,

    Awesome Hat

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Everything I've ever wanted in a knit hat. It's warm, good wool feeling on the outside and the fleece ear and keeps anything from being scratchy. Used it numerous times already and I don't think I'll settle for anything less.

    Thanks Kenneth!

    fits tight

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this Beanie, but still fits tight around my head and makes head itch. I have the OR Gradient beanie that fits perfect with way more room around my head and it feels fine.

    Great comment - I will pass this on!

    Thanks!

    I will agree with Aaron V. - this hat is not really a one-size-fits-all. It is a little on the small side, and doesn't stretch much. It is warm though, and no itching here.
