Dumb and Personal Question

What do people where on their heads at this time of year? I have lost two very comfortable thermal hats so far this winter. I don't like the lack of visibility of having my oilskin hood up, and tend to wear a neck scrarf round my ears and a wooly hat - which only lasts up to about 35 knots.

What I really want is a thermal hat with some sort of tie which does not look like the one my Mother made for me when I was aged 6!!!

I think the real answer is to getan ordinary thermal hat and Nail it on....It works for me. You are right they do slide off at speed. So the answer has hgotta be a ski mask I guess'

I was out on Sunday and forgot my hat and gloves I thought my ears had fallen off !

A gecko might also work!

But if I had your money then I'd get one of these http://www.musto.co.uk/index.cfm?articleid=514

I reckon I have tried some twenty different oufits and this is the best I have tried so far: http://www.sportsnett.no/products.shtml?LOW15
I use it when fishing (all year round). It should get really cold before you start to freeze. A tip: if you do not have a big head (like I do) you might consider buying a larger size and wear a fleece cap underneath. Then you will be ok, even if you go ribbing around the North pole.

Regards,

DaButt

Ooops: should have been this one: http://www.sportsnett.no/products.shtml?LOW15

Combine it with a Balaclava (http://www.sportsnett.no/products.shtml?LOW15) a pair of ski googles and you are ready to go!

You could try a neoprene balaclava. You can get them in windsurfing shops like this:
