Patagonia’s Nano Puff Jacket is easily one of our favorite winter coats, with its streamlined looks, warm insulation, and weather-resistant build. But what would the popular jacket look and feel like if you turn it into a winter hat? Turns out, you can find out for yourself with the Patagonia Nano Puff Earflap Cap.
That’s right, one of the outfit’s more popular jackets just became a hat, allowing you to cover your noggin with the same insulated material you can drape all over your torso. Whether you’re spending the snowy days of the season cranking up the heater at home, skiing at a mountain resort, or winter camping in freezing backcountry temperatures, this thing will keep your head as toasty as its jacket counterpart does for your body.
The Patagonia Nano Puff Earflap Cap is an erstwhile traditional earflap hat that uses the same material as the Nano Puff Jacket for its construction. That means, it’s constructed from a recycled 22-denier polyester ripstop shell with a DWR finish that’s both water-resistant and windproof, ensuring it will protect your noggin from the harsh elements of the winter weather. It also has that same quilted brick pattern that’s filled with 60 grams of Primaloft Gold Insulation Eco for insulation, which, the outfit claims, will maintain 98 percent of its warmth the entire time, even in wet conditions. We’re not going to lie, we’re loving the aesthetic, too.
A soft brim (without the quilted pattern) provides the necessary shade to keep both snow and sun away from your eyes, while elastic earflaps keep out the chilly air from erstwhile sensitive regions. And yes, the flaps can be tucked in out of sight when you don’t need them, making this look like a regular hat, albeit one with insulated quilting.
The Patagonia Nano Puff Earflap Cap is available now, priced at $59.
