winter hats for men Buyer’s Guide
Castelli Estremo WS Skully
What they say: Maximum warmth while allowing vapour to escape with warmer fabric for comfort and warmth.
What we say: With a band made from Gore’s Windstopper X-Free fabric, the Estremo WS Skully does a fine job of keeping your noggin snug, forming a protective chill-proof barrier that wraps itself around your forehead and over your ears.
This is a good thing as these are the areas many riders complain suffer the most when riding in colder conditions.
The rest of the cap is made from a fleecy, elasticated material called ‘Warmer Fabric’ which isn’t windproof (because it’s used in places where it doesn’t need to be, as long as you’re wearing a helmet over it) but it is highly breathable, offering a comfortable – if somewhat close – fit.
Castelli reckons this is suitable for riding in temperatures between 5-10°C, but we reckon it’d still serve you well in temperatures below that.
The Italian firm also bills this as a skullcap, despite it not quite fitting the accepted description of that on account of a wee flap at the back of the cap.
Acting almost like a reversed peak, this serves to protect the exposed part of your neck between what would ordinarily be the bottom of the cap and the top of your jacket.
What they say: For the most extreme riding conditions, the Castelli Difesa Cap is the item you’ll reach for to make riding a bit more bearable.
With full windproof coverage on top of the head and ear flaps, it traps in warmth and doesn’t let it go.
What we say: Difesa is the Italian word for defence and it’s an apt name for this bit of headgear.
The initial impression this cap gives is that it’s too thin to be of much cop when temperatures drop, but the entire thing is constructed from the same material Castelli uses on its rightly celebrated Gabba jersey – Gore’s Windstopper fabric.
Meaning this will protect you against both the wind and rain while also being highly breathable. It can be worn like a regular casquette, with its traditional cycling cap visor working to keep the rain out of your eyes, but there is also a fold-down panel made of Thermoflex fabric which can be deployed when the wind starts to bite that’ll keep your ears from falling off.
Reflective piping around the sides and detailing embedded in the Castelli label to the rear complete the package.
Craft Active Extreme 2.0 WS Hat
What they say: Thin and lightweight skull hat with wind-protective Windstopper panel at front that keeps your head dry and warm during workouts in chilly and windy conditions.
What we say: Swedish firm Craft was set up in the 1970s to produce base layers with keen wicking abilities, so it’s no surprise to discover that its Active Extreme skull cap is made from a highly breathable ribbed polyester mix which is easily the thinnest we looked at here.
But because of this it also offers very little protection against the rain. There is, however, a highly effective windproof panel at the front made from Gore’s excellent Windstopper fabric to keep icy headwinds out, while the cut of this cap ensures that most of your head, including your ears and the back of your neck are protected against chills.
Alps & Meters Classic Pom Hat
Established in 2014, Alps & Meters is a new brand that focuses on making a few high-quality pieces for cold temperatures. And when we say “a few,” we mean a few. The brand only has nine pieces on offer, and the Classic Pom Hat is one of them. Made out of 100% lambswool (and available in a variety of colors), the hat is coated with DuPont Teflon water repellant, and has a secret zipped pocket underneath the hat’s cuff to store a key, cash, or a credit card.
This winter mask is made from fleece, giving it an extremely soft feel to it. It has been made so that it is completely in line with the human head shape and has a hat solid modeling to it. If you are looking for a stylish, windproof face mask that can be used as a fashion accessory, then this should be at the top of your list.
You will be able to turn it into a snood, a scarf and even a hat. The fact that this winter face mask isn’t prone to wrinkling means that you won’t have a thing to worry about as far as comfort and performance is concerned.
Wrap up and roll out
Do replace your riding hat immediately if it suffers an extreme impact.
Do buy the best riding hat you can afford and never compromise safety.
Do throw away a hat that has sustained a significant level of impact is thrown away even if the damage isn’t visible.
Do report any accidents you and your hat are involved in to the British Horse Society as they maintain records of how hats perform.
Do replace your riding hat every years – because the padding compresses with wear and factors such as sunlight can break down its construction.

Choosing your riding hat
There are two genres of riding hats: single size and adjustable. Choosing between them depends on your discipline and riding ability.
Features of a riding hat
The chin strap is often overlooked despite being a key part of the hat. It needs to be easily adjustable so that it feels comfortable. The purpose of the chin strap is to ensure that the hat does not move and that it stays in the correct position on your head whilst you’re riding. It should always be securely fastened under the chin and you should only be able to get one finger under it when it’s on. If you can get two fingers, side by side under the strap, the strap is not tight enough. Adjust the chin strap before you adjust any of the other straps or dials if the hat has one.
The straps at the back and side of the hat come if several different designs but all serve the same purpose: to stop the hat from tipping forwards. Fasten them equally.
Hats either have a 3- or a 4- point harness. The ‘3’ and the ‘4’ simply relate to the number of places it can be adjusted. Obviously a 4-point harness is more desirable as it means that you’ll be able to adjust fit in the maximum number of places for the best fit without compromising on safety.
Some of these liners are attached via Velcro while others are attached via tiny poppers.
Consider buying a ventilated hat if you have a ‘hot head’! From the safety angle, if you’re concerned about whether a vented hat will provide the same level of protection as a non-vented one…be assured that it will. Vented riding hats go through the same rigorous testing process and having vents does not reduce the level of protection. A good example is the Gatehouse RXCSkull Cap. It’s the most protective riding hat we sell. It has vents and yet still has the greatest level of safety certification, i.e. Snell E200and PAS: 015.
From the aesthetic angle, if you’re concerned about how the hat will look when you’ve got it on, the vents are incorporated in to the overall design of the hat giving a modern look which is incredibly popular.
