Swix Anders Hat is a nice round beanie cap for a larger head, without flap or excess fabric, topped with a braided tail for a bit of conservative flair. Firmly knit these caps are designed to be worn multiple ways without shifting, so pull them down over your ears before you warm up, pop them up over your ears when you've been moving for additional ventilation. There's a reason these traditional shapes are so popular with cross country skiers, runners, joggers, and anyone else engaging in aerobic activities in cold weather: they're remarkably effective at both keeping you warm when you need to tug them down, and providing vented comfort once you've started generating your own heat. Popped higher up on the head the extra space created under the dome allows this hat to breathe, while the extra surface area around your ears also vents away excess heat. Easily packable, this hat will fit into a pocket when you no longer need it, be at your fingertips when you're cooling down in the parking lot. This is sized as an XL, so will comfortably fit the man who complains there is never a hat that fits him. It offers a contrasting color band for style and a happy little braided tassel on top that's not overwhelming, but gives the hat a finished, traditional, appearance. Firm knit for flexibility in wearing, and easily packable, this is a great winter sports hat for cold weather.
