Canadian winters are no joke, and for those of us who have to deal with the cold and snow on a daily basis, the right gear is a must.
When you’re heading out the door to face your day, there’s no doubt that a pair of gloves, a scarf and a hat are all essential items. If you’re still on the lookout for the perfect pieces, there’s one bestselling toque that you may want to add to your collection.
Though it is marketed as a men’s hat, the unisex Carhartt Acrylic Watch Hat starts at just $16, and has inspired a legion of devoted fans who can’t get enough of this utilitarian toque.
Backed by more than 18,000 reviews worldwide, this affordable hat has earned itself a 4.6-star rating and a place at the top of Amazon’s bestsellers. Shoppers are loving the wide range of colours and the durable construction, made from a thick ribbed acrylic, that Carhartt products are known for.
“Amazing quality and looks great. Not to mention super warm,” wrote one reviewer. “Working in the trades, I have purchased thousands of dollars of Carhartt product and this, like the rest, doesn’t disappoint.”
At the time of publication, this was the top customer-rated review for the Carhartt Acrylic Watch Hat.
“Keeps my head warm, doesn't stretch out after wearing all day and best of all, no itchy toque head.”
This reviewer also shared a photo and captioned it “Canada warm,’ which definitely makes the case for this hat holding up against the elements.
The top customer-chosen critical review reads:
“Bought three toques, and two of them seem real. Black one is made in Canada, blue one in the USA, and the Coal Heather is made in China. It also doesn’t have a genuine label inside…The other two are not the same as each other either, but they seem higher quality though.”
Since Amazon’s marketplace is filled with various retailers, your best bet to avoid a similar situation is to only make purchases that are shipped from and sold by Amazon.ca, rather than a third-party vendor.
