The Best Winter Hats of 2018

"Top of our list for high-output winter activities is the 3-Season Helmet beanie from up-and-coming Chicago company Snowshed. It’s made from superfine merino wool and fits nicely into your pocket. We wore the 3-Season beneath our bike and ski helmets without any bulk, itch, or overheating, thanks to its thin profile."

It’s true: your head loses around 7 to 10 percent of your body’s heat!

If you wear a helmet in the winter then our acclaimed 3-Season Helmet Beanie is made for you...

Why Merino Wool?

The small air chambers in our wool perfectly regulate your body's internal temperature.  Wearing Snowshed® layers will keep you cool in the off-season warm spells and warm throughout the frigid winter.  Also, Merino wool is a powerful odor fighter... You literally can wear these layers for weeks without offending the herd.  No stink, no chills, just all day comfort!

Our Superfine Merino Wool comes from Australia and New Zealand. Then after 2 weeks at sea our fabric lands in California where the garments are Made in the USA!

Thin and Soft Fabrics

“Keeping your head warm is smart, even on beautiful days - it’s still winter, after all. Snowshed’s soft Merino cap is thin and slight enough to fit under a helmet, so you don’t have to take it off when you strap on your safety gear.”

"I am beyond satisfied.  I work outside all day high up in the air as a Lineman.  I can honestly say for the first time in my life I am warm and comfortable all day.  SnowShed is a game changer for my type of work!  The feeling of the fabric on my skin is so soft and comfortable it's like I have my favorite pajamas on under my work clothes all day!  Thanks SnowShed!!"

Dan H. (Men's GUNNISON Pants & CASCADE Zip Shirt)



"I've tried countless base layers and you will not find better than Snowshed! Synthetics don't compare (they stretch, break down, rip the hair out of my legs), cotton is pointless, and other wool base layers are itchy or bulky. Snowshed's midweight merino is thin, yet warm enough to keep me comfortable during the sub-freezing winters of Colorado."

Robert (Men's GUNNISON Wool Leggings)



“Very comfortable, very warm -- on cold days I even wear these under my pants while sitting at my desk job! Have tested them out in harsher environments as well (see bicycling in the snow) and was not disappointed.”

Zach N. (Men's GUNNISON Pants)



“This top looks and fits great! It's the most comfortable top that I own and I wear it all the time. I never knew wool could be so comfortable. Not only that, it's very warm without the bulk. Because of its natural odor resistance I rarely need to wash it. Love this top and now a fan of Snowshed.”

Judd A. (Men's LUMBERJACK Shirt)



“Everyone, buy this shirt immediately! It is so comfortable and warm and I am in love with the colors!”
