This innovative design looks like a regular stretchy hat, but a drop-down gaiter offers extra coverage for your face and neck. “I love the versatility,” said an editor after test trips on windy Rocky Mountain ridgelines.
The gaiter is sewn to the inside of the hat behind your head, so it tucks away in the crown when not in use. It’s made of densely woven wool with a polyester/Lycra lining that wicks well and feels soft against the forehead. $35; 3 oz.; mountainhardwear.com
