Editors’ Picks with Senior Online Producer Katie Herrell

A cozy hat and a cozy jacket for our always-cold staffer.

[hat]
Pistil Clover Hat
When I’m sick of boring beanies, I pull out this patterned wool/acrylic hat with a mini-brim and fleece earband. With three-quarter ear coverage (for unobstructed hearing), it’s warm enough for severe cold. It packs small but pops back to shape perfectly. $30; 2.9 oz.; pistildesigns.com

[insulation]
MontBell UL Thermawrap Jacket
This synthetic puffy is so light and compressible, I pack it on all chilly days and on winter overnights when I want extra midlayer insulation. $145; 7.7 oz. (w’s M); montbell.com
