Warm Winter Hats
Warm Winter Hats
Maybe the old wives’ tale of losing most of your body heat through your head is false, but the reason it started is because we typically wear clothing outside but not always a warm winter hat! Purchasing and using warm winter hats can stop the heat from even that 10% of body area from escaping, which can make a big difference when the temps are near or below freezing. However, not all winter hats are made equal. From function to fashion, selecting the perfect winter hat can vary by person.
Why Are Winter Hats Important?
While your body’s heat loss depends on the amount of skin you have exposed to the elements, if the rest of you is bundled up but your head is bare you could be losing unnecessary warmth. Wearing a winter hat puts the literal cap on preparedness to brave the elements. You wouldn’t walk out into the snow without a coat on, would you? Then why leave your head out in the cold? Humans control their body temperature through a balance of heat production and heat loss. If you come into contact directly with something cold, like a snowball on bare skin, you lose heat through conduction. If you’re surrounded by cold air, your body loses heat through convection. But your body can also fall victim to something called the “chimney effect,” where cold air infiltrates your clothing and pushes the warm air out through available openings. This is why having well-fitting cold-weather gear like a warm winter hat is crucial.
What to Look for in Warm Winter Hats?
Finding the best warm winter hat for your body, style, and personality makes keeping warm in cold temps even more effective. So, what should you look for in warm winter hats?
- Perhaps the most important thing in choosing a winter hat is the fit. You want to make sure that it fits snuggly but isn’t too tight that it causes a headache or discomfort. On the other hand, you don’t want your hat to be so loose that it slips down as this will allow a higher risk for the chimney effect and cold air can sneak in.
