Outdoor Research Wind Pro® Hat
You know that one zip-up that you bought years ago as a layer, the one you’ve since found yourself wearing as your go-to jacket because it fits just right and inexplicably looks good with everything? It was a spare accessory that became a cornerstone of your patrolling wardrobe. This is that jacket as a hat.
This water-repellent, wind-resistant and highly breathable Outdoor Research Wind Pro Hat will provide you with year after year of warmth and comfort in inclement weather. Get ready to say the phrase “Tactical Beanie” a lot more often, because you won’t want to take it off.

I'm usually a guy who buys wool products and I bought this to replace a $10 100% made in the USA wool watch cap that wasn't uniform spec but I was prepared to be let down. But this hat is incredible! It's just as warm as my wool cap and much more comfortable. The fleece lining on the ears is great and the rest of the interior is soft as well. Water beads on the outside of the hat and the OR logo is subtle. Great product.
Fits nicely and feels good on my bald head. I have a 7 3/8 head and got the L/XL. I haven't worn it in a cold wind yet, but I expect it will do very well.
I had ordered the Arc'teryx beanie but upon receiving it, realized it was essential a dew rag. I returned it and ordered this one. Overall quality is top notch as is normal with OR. However, the lettering on mine is black, not silver or white as pictured. If it's a big deal to you, heads up. If not, this hat will do just fine. Seems really warm. I have a small head and it fits tight so if you have anything but a small head, go with the L/XL. It also comes down just far enough. Not too much that it goes over your eyes either.
Well constructed. Covers ears easily. Keeps head warm but breathes at the same time.
GREAT ITEM VERY WARM WIND PROOF AWESOME!!!!!
OR's Wind Pro Hat is hand's-down, THE BEST piece of "snivel gear" I've ever owned. Warm, soft Thinsulate fleece on the inside, tougher wind and weather-proof material on the outside. After using mine for a few months, I promptly ordered two more (for my mates). Quality materials and workmanship throughout; great piece of gear.
My husband had this hat and it is my favorite hat for running as it fits over my ponytail and still covers my ears. SKD was the only supplier that still had this hat in size L/XL. Great hat and extremely fast shipping. Thanks!
I like this hat. I ordered the L/XL hat and my only gripe about it though is that it has an internal seam and tight spot that goes over the top of my ear when wearing glasses. I wear a 7-3/4 to an 8 for a hat size so it's something to consider if little things like that bug you. All in all though I still wear this hat almost every time I go out now that it's winter. Very warm and fends off the wind. Good for 20's-30's just standing around.
