Your sun hat won't cut it for the next few months, so be sure to get a cozy winter hat to keep you warm.
It'll be freezing before we know it, which means our favorite sun hats and baseball caps won't be of much use. They don't keep our heads warm, and let's face it, it'll be dark by the time we get off work!
Instead, consider a warm hat that will keep heat from escaping your body. Staying warm is all about keeping your head, chest, feet, and hands warm. Here are seven of the best winter hats for men that will keep you cozy all winter long.
Best Men's Winter Hats
Best for Leisurewear
Ditch the ball cap for this watch hat from Timberland. The 100% acrylic hat is perfect for all low-maintenance cold-weather fun. So whether you're sitting on the porch, cleaning the garage, or out picking up groceries, this men's beanie will keep you toasty while staying breathable.
Best for Working Outdoors
We all know Carhartt is a top-rated brand for workwear. Their 2-in-1 hat is ideal headwear for those who need to stay warm and wear a mask. Not only is it equipped with a moisture-wicking face mask, but it also has ear flaps for ultra warmth.
One size fits all! Be sure to machine wash cold and tumble dry on low.
Best for Hunting
If you're a hunter, then your winter wardrobe isn't complete without a camo balaclava. This mask is scent control-treated and is made of anti-piling fleece. This means you won't have extra material clinging to it when you wash it with other clothing!
It's warm, soft, and quiet. Check out these reviews.
Best for Style
If you love visors or ball caps, then you'll love this hat style. This isn't your typical rib knit beanie! The cap is a plus for keeping the elements out of your face. The wool beanie even comes with a scarf. Not bad for under $16.
