Outdoor Research's Transcendent Beanie is the only down filled hat we've seen - and that surely makes it the warmest at its miniscule weight.
Outdoor Research says: Like a warm and cozy sleeping bag for your cabeza, the Transcendent Beanie is built with an ultralight fabric shell and insulated with 650+ fill down, ensuring maximum retention of heat from where the body loses it most rapidly. Ideal for alpine camping, the Transcendent Beanie can also be worn under your shell’s hood in extremely cold conditions.
Incredibly lightweight and compressible, this beanie is the perfect companion for any cold-weather expedition.
Outdoor Research's Transcendent Beanie is a great product - a down filled beanie that maximises warmth for weight. Outdoor Research have even built in a tiny stuffsack with a hanging loop to make storage easier.
The bottom edge is half elasticated to allow a degree of fit and the baffles are sewn with elasticated thread making the whole thing a stretchy close fit - even better for keeping you warm. By using a superlight nylon shell the weight has been minimised even further.
This product may look daft but it looks better on and its a wise choice, you could use it when you're in your sleeping bag - or in place of a hood if your jacket doesn't have one, or anywhere, anytime to get a warm head fast. Its big enough to be pulled down over the ears as well.
