Hat for a big head
« on: 20:18:38, 26/12/07 »
Any recommendations for a warm hat for a large head please (It's in proportion - honestly, I think! - I am nearly 6'5"!)?
I've been around nearly all of the shops in Keswick and they're not catering for the the above average it seems.
I just want a normal, probably fleece-with-lining hat, nothing fancy or necessarily with a logo.
Thanks a lot.

My partner got a large head, and finds it difficult to get hats for him  that fit's him will he bought one from the TNF which cost about 15:00 pounds and he found it was warm as well.  But lost it later on.  Now he wears   buff and  and a sightly thinner hat from berghaus which cost him 10 pounds from www.gooutddoors.co.uk and said it works just as well.

Thanks, the TNF ones were a bit small that I tried, Berghaus were a little better but still a touch small.

It depends on the size of you're head really.  My partner head size is a round a size 61 cm which is an extra large,  Now he found the TNF hat just fine.  it just a plain black one and covered his head just fine, Fleece beanie.  It was called there are other try this website out hope it's useful

 www.mountainwarehouse.com.

they have one which is a L-XL size called Windy Took Extremities for 21.50 pence which has gore windstopper which doesn't make you look stupid if this didn't fit you could go for a Extremities active X balaclava.

I've ended up getting a cheapie - a Gelert / Thinsulate stretchy fleece one with a lining, it's slightly too small, but livable with, and surprisingly warm for the money.
