Different style from our standard Bison Beanie, slightly smaller and closer fitting, we went and upped the game by adding a 3 1/2 polar fleece ear band inside the bison cap. All the extra warmth you might need when you have to take the wicked wind straight on.

- Inner ear band, polar fleece 100% polyester
- Earband measures 3 1/2" sewn into bison hat

I am an avid outdoorsman, blacksmith, carpenter and I love kayaking and mountain biking. I live in the high uintahs just outside Kamas Utah where the weather is often cold and damp with frequent wind and snow. This is hands down the best beanie I've ever owned and I will be buying more bison wool products. I've only owned this beanie for a couple weeks but I've already worn it day and night, in rain and sunshine. My head never felt damp or sweaty and my ears were never cold. It's the only beanie I've had that can be worn while doing heavy work splitting wood or standing at the forge and then leave it on while reclining in the hammock or in front of the TV for consecutive days without becoming damp, starting to smell, or loosing its insulation. I also love the way it wears snug against my head and clings around the ears. There's no creep or wandering under a jacket hood iether. Quality product and I can appreciate that it came with a card explaining how bison wool co. contributes to conservation.
Quality is spot on, fleece band is just the right width, worth the dough in my opinion. My new "go to" for winter hammock camping on the Cumberland Trail...
I ran into the Buffalo Wool Company at our state fair a number of years ago. I generally know you get what you pay for with products and chose this hat. I have not been disappointed. It is my go-to hat for any Alaskan adventures! Whether that be hikes with the family, Boy Scout trips, hunting, snowmobiling, packrafting, you name it and the hat is either on my head or in my jacket pocket. I don't leave home without this amazing hat. Thanks again for making great products. Since this purchase I've added socks, gloves, and the balaclava to my kit.
Bison Beanie with Polar Fleece ear band
Nice hat. I have worn many others but this one by far the best fitting watch cap I have ever owned. The ear band is great. You put it on and it stays put. To bad you didn't have it in black!
While I won't be able to fully assess the performance of this product for several more months, I think my ears are going to be well protected. The fit seems pretty good without being too snug. The fleece lining is comfortable. If the performance of the beanie is similar to the performance of the pair of boot length socks that I used last winter, my ears should be in good shape. The beanie does not appear to be as thick as the socks, but it does appear to be thick enough to be pretty toasty. Looking forward to being well protected during the winter months when my work takes me outside. Nothing worse than taking the forklift out of the warehouse on a windy day with unprotected ears. 30 seconds can feel like a full 5 minutes of icy pummelling. I think this will do the job!
Just got home to try it on, fit is excellent and appears to be very well made.... considering that it’s in the 80’s I ain’t gonna wear it very long😆😆... will get back to ya in November
