Description

The Sealskinz Water Repellent Cold Weather Bobble Hat uses a teflon coated outer acrylic fabric to help prevent water penetration. The original was much sturdier, made from thicker nylon and with a breathable waterproof lining and a decent thermal insulation.

Taunton were good and shipped quickly so that I could take the cap on my last minute trip to Iceland. I can imagine that it might be a bit too insulating if you tend to run hot, but my ears and neck love being toasty!That first product is now considered the blueprint from which all modern, technical backpacks are derived.

I love mine but I only ever wear it with the neck flap folded up and pull the hood over if it is raining hard. My previous hat, sadly lost, was of much better quality; the fleece lining was thicker and cosier and the outer fabric was more substantial and more waterproof than the current version. The scooped ear flaps have webbing loop attachments that can be attached to a chin strap for ultimate on head security (chin strap not included). This does not apply to any perishable goods, unsealed software or item personalised or made to your specification.

LD Mountain Centre does not accept responsibility for items being delayed through customs/ security checks or adverse weather conditions. The ear flaps can be worn either up or down while the peaked brim can be secured to the front of the hat, making this a very adaptive hat for on the mountain. The rear adjustment means the cap can be tightened down in strong winds – there are loops for attaching a chin cord too (I definitely recommend doing this). The shell is Lowe Alpine's own Triplepoint fabric, which in its latest incarnation is a well respected, breathable and waterproof.

A hook and loop tab on the rear ensures you get the perfect fit and the malleable peak can be easily folded away with a press-stud.The Mountain Cap is primarily for insulation and keeping the wind off, both of which jobs it does very well IMO. The fully seam taped, waterproof and breathable shell will keep you protected from the elements whilst allowing vapour to escape keeping you comfortable. This is the original of this style and I’ve had one in my winter pack for longer than I can remember. Lowe Alpine invented this design of Mountain Cap and it very quickly became a classic because the design is so good.
