We stock a vast range of caps, sun hats, warm hats, neck gaiters, headbands, balaclavas and face masks for every conceivable weather system, climate, head size and activity. Remember that approximately 30% of heat loss from your body can be from your head, so keep a lid on it!
For Summer headwear, look for caps and hats that offer protection from the sun via a brim and sometimes neck coverage. Summer hats should also wick well in order to keep your head cool and dry.
Our range of classic brim hats comes from Tilley Endurables. They are guaranteed for life not to wear out and are insured against loss for 2 years. The materials are certified Ultra Violet Protection Factor 50+ and are rain repellant, and the designs feature anti-sweat bands, adjustable tuckaway fore'n'aft wind cords, secret internal pockets and they float!
We have both cool and warm weather neck and head wraps from the well known Buff range. These are incredibly versatile and a favourite with climbers, cyclists and walkers. These ingenious creations have no stitching or seams for comfort and can be turned into hats, banadanas, headbands and much more!

For general cool-cold weather use nothing beats a good ol' beanie hat! These should be comfortable, warm and wicking to keep your head toasty yet dry. They are often made from a combination of wool and manmade fibres. As well as practical uses beanies look great weather on the hill, at the crag or posing round town!

However, if you notice a strange aroma after a few months of use, all you need do is either wash by hand using any form of detergent or machine wash at any temperature and it will not stretch, shrink or run as Buff headwear is completely colourfast. When it comes to drying all you need do is run down the street with your Buff trailing behind and after a good hour on the run it should be dry or just hang it on the line because it will dry in minutes.
