wintery hats help
i need a winter hat with earflaps or some other ear warming device. i found a company, little package, who makes custom wool hats for 45 bucks. im wondering if thats the going price for a nice winter hat or if there are other brands that may make nice hats for less money.

Take a look at these.

Good wool isn't cheap but, it works extremely well. Ibex, Smartwool, Icebreaker, etc all make wool headgear. So does Swobo, and I like their wool beanie as it is more cycling specific. Joneswares also has a wool thing or two for the head, is competitive with pricing and, is a first rate company.

Having said this, $45 for a custom made wool hat is not bad at all.

hmmm. maybe i need to clarify. i want a cycling cat, with a brim and all that. i have plenty of wool.winter hats/beanies but i want a cycling one. i may just dish out the 45 and get one of the hats i found.
