Black Rock Gear Classic Hat

This Black Rock Gear Original Hat is simply awesome! My Black Rock Gear Original Hat weights under an ounce and supplies me with superior warmth compared to hats weighing much more than it. Made of 900fp Goose Down, and nestled inside 15 denier sub one ounce DWR coated ripstop material, this hat will shed the rain, sleet or snow keeping you warm in any condition. On top of all that, the Black Rock Gear Original Hat also has a antimicrobial Dryline headband integrated into it, which form fits to your head and wicks sweat from your brow. While being lightweight and super warm, it also compacts down super small. Which lends itself to being a great addition to any backpackers gear. I usually am a fan of wool surplus caps, like my favorite one being the Candaian Turc (sp), which is super warm and just feels really good. The one thing I would really like to see is more colors, as I am a fan of more subdued colors (Olive Drab, Coyote, etc.). But this Black Rock Gear Original Hat is taking the top spot for overall performance in my hat list. Being Made in the USA, just adds to the awesome this hat has. Berz Rating: 97/100

It looks good!

I bought one of these and sent it back. My $20.00 Mountain Hardware fleece hat with Goretex lining was warmer and kept my core warmer. There is not enough down in it and it certainly isn’t worth $70.00!

Needs more MOLLE. =)

Sam Smith says:

$70 WTF?? LOL Does that down come from a magical golden goose? Not sure who’s on the most drugs, the company or anyone who would actually spend that on a hat?

Nice head sock.

I’ve been wanting to get one of these to review for my channel but they are always out of stock or backordered. Kinda frustrating honestly, but great review. Glad you were able to get one.
