/ Which winter hat?
I have wittled it down to the classic Lowe Alpine Winter Cap (there are also copies of this design by most of the other main manufacturers at similar price)
The Marmot Cap - this is built more like a baseball cap so the peak is far more rigid and does not fold up.
Admittedly this hat is hardly going to see any proper extreme action, but still want to get the best design for warm/dry head.
I am tempted towards the Marmot myself, but am open to other suggestions / advice.Thx in advance
Dog walking in the pouring rain is best conducted in a full brim Aussie/US stetson type hat IMHO. Keeps the rain off and the branches out of your eyes. Not that I walked into a tree at 5:45 this morning or anything you understand.
Just to mix things up a bit...how about a nice fleece lined waxed hat?
Another vote for the Lowe Alpine Mountain Cap. It's great - super cosy and goretex too...and you can roll the ear flaps up for when you don't want your lugs covered.
