Outdoor Research says:
The Dakota Peruvian Hat is your noggin's best friend, named after one of the office doggos that keep Outdoor Research employees ahead of the pack. Dakota was a Yorkshire Terrier who (also known as Bug and Kotabug) enjoyed finding the sunniest spots to lay in, defending campsites by patrolling the perimeter, and begging for belly rubs. Plus: the long-string style pom on this cozy toque does more than simply look good. This bobble naturally rolls around the crown of the hat as you move, brushing off any fresh powder that may have landed on your head.
