Keeping yourself warm while walking in winter is important.
A good winter hat is a vital piece of clothing that every walker should own.
I have a long history of winter hat ownership to a level where my friends have begun to think that I have a strange headwear fixation. The reason for my collection is simply because I have very little hair and having a warm and well designed winter hat to me is essential.
Berghaus Ulvetanna Beanie
The Ulvetanna Beanie from respected outdoor equipment manufacturer Berghaus offers a great deal of warmth and breathability in colder weather conditions. The dual layer design means that the beanie traps a sufficient amount of warm air to keep your head toasty on even the coldest of hill days.
The beanie is available in three different colour schemes and each is reversible. The colours are muted on one side and bright on the other which makes it ideal for when you find yourself in low-light conditions and you want to make sure you remain visible to others.
Another advantage to the reversibility / dual layers is when you find a build up of condensation or sweat on the inside, you can turn the beanie inside out and it still remains effective. If you do get caught in a shower, the beanie is fairly quick drying.
The beanie has supposedly been designed for use by men which is a little odd as there can’t be anything too gender specific in a beanie and I have seen many women climbers and walkers wearing them (including our very own Rebecca).
I currently own two Ulvetanna Beanies and over the past three years I have worn them while camping and walking through the Scottish mountains in some pretty foul weather and very low temperatures and my head still remained cosy and warm.
A well made and well designed beanie for those who like a warm head when out walking.
