Sunday Afternoons Stellar Beanie

Warmth meets style

Brand: Sunday Afternoons

Model: Stellar Beanie

Our take When the stars overhead match the glow-in-the-dark constellations on your hat, you know you’ve made some good choices. But beyond the fun pattern, the Stellar’s merino/acrylic/poly blend kept our heads warm down to 10°F on a rigorous nighttime snowshoe through the frozen Yukon tundra, even with winds whipping snow horizontally. The low profile was great under helmets, but the fit left some testers’ earlobes exposed. (Note: If your tentmate isn’t into glow-in-the-dark stars, the Stellar is reversible.)

Trail cred “This hat moved sweat and kept me toasty all day long, even under an uninsulated helmet,” one tester said after a day of skiing near Fraser, British Columbia. “When I took my helmet off at the bottom of the slope, strangers actually came up to compliment the pattern.”
