I've gone on more trips with Under Armour Arctic Beanie than I have with my wife.
Seriously. It never gets left at home. Now in my defense, I've been married less than a year now, but whenever I'm traveling it's always in my carry-on bag.
The Arctic Beanie combines a soft, quiet Under Armour microfleece shell with a HeatGear® liner that wicks moisture away from your skin and circulates body heat to keep your head warm and dry.
Studies say you lose between 30% and 50% of your body heat through your head; keeping it covered is essential for most winter outdoor excursions. The Arctic Beanie seals in your body heat by conforming to the shape of your head with a snug compression for unrestricted movement and increased circulation.
Armourblock™ protection also neutralizes microbes and bacteria that cause odors so it stays fresh and ready for your next hunting trip or your morning workout.
Mine is black. At least is started out that way. It has seen more than its fair share of rough times.
It was there for me while I was holding on for dear life in a two-bit john boat when my guide started jumping ice drifts on a semi-frozen lake in Saskatchewan, and it kept me warm when it started to rain later that same day.
On frigid mornings in November, it blocked the cold and wicked moisture away from my head as we walked field after field on the pheasant-filled plains near Chamberlain, S.D.
I also credit it with single-handedly preserving my core heat even as a thin layer of ice formed on its soft microfleece shell when I hiked though a snowstorm deep in the backcountry.
Barring some dirt, water and generally smelling like woodsmoke from too many nights sitting by a campfire, it's no worse for the wear.
This little beanie is worth every penny and then some.
