Outdoor Research's Transcendent Beanie is the only down filled hat we've seen - and that surely makes it the warmest at its miniscule weight.

Outdoor Research says:

Like a warm and cozy sleeping bag for your cabeza, the Transcendent Beanie is built with an ultralight fabric shell and insulated with 650+ fill down, ensuring maximum retention of heat from where the body loses it most rapidly. Ideal for alpine camping, the Transcendent Beanie can also be worn under your shell’s hood in extremely cold conditions.

Incredibly lightweight and compressible, this beanie is the perfect companion for any cold-weather expedition.

Outdoor Research's Transcendent Beanie is a great product - a down filled beanie that maximises warmth for weight. Outdoor Research have even built in a tiny stuffsack with a hanging loop to make storage easier.

The bottom edge is half elasticated to allow a degree of fit and the baffles are sewn with elasticated thread making the whole thing a stretchy close fit - even better for keeping you warm. By using a superlight nylon shell the weight has been minimised even further.

This product may look daft but it looks better on and its a wise choice, you could use it when you're in your sleeping bag - or in place of a hood if your jacket doesn't have one, or anywhere, anytime to get a warm head fast. Its big enough to be pulled down over the ears as well.

A truly transcendental hat experience

This is a great hat, my go-to as soon as it starts getting chilly but it is comfortable in mild temperatures as well. The down insulation makes it a great addition to any set up whatever the season and its weight and packsize means it can be stuffed into any kit or pocket. I got caught out in a storm and soaked through but despite being wet this still kept my head warm which was vital - it's not waterproof one bit but it definitely made a big difference to my temperature and wellbeing. It did smell funky when it dried - hand washed in warm tap water with citronella soap and its back to being fresh and snug. Lofts easy so even after extended use it can bounce back to its usual, soft self. I use mine all the time and recklessly stuff it anywhere in my pack and after 3 months of near daily use there is not a bit of stitching loose nor visible wear or degradation anywhere. Probably my most loved bit of kit. It can get a bit sweaty but then it is windproof, simple solution: pop it off and on again.
