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.
SHOP IT: Amazon, from $18
Though it is marketed as a men’s hat, the unisex Carhartt Acrylic Watch Hat starts at just $18, and has inspired a legion of devoted fans who can’t get enough of this utilitarian toque.
Featuring a ribbed design and a versatile fold-over brim, it’s designed to stand up to the elements. Whether you’re working outdoors this winter or just planning for some fun in the snow, this affordable hat is a must-have for the season.
With more than a dozen colours to choose from, including classic neutrals and vibrant neon shades, there’s a good chance that you’ll find one to suit any style.
Why shoppers love it
Backed by more than 45,000 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.”
Another reviewer even shared a photo and captioned it “Canada warm,” which definitely makes the case for this hat holding up against the elements.
“Keeps my head warm, doesn't stretch out after wearing all day and best of all, no itchy toque head, they wrote.”
One downside to this hat is that it is only available in a single size, so if you prefer a looser or more snug fit, there’s no option to choose the size that works best for your preferences.
“The hat is great quality, but it seems to be too small for me, not to the point of returning it, but to the point of me having to leave it stretched over the back of a chair whenever I'm not wearing it,” reads one review. “Well made hat for the price - if it was a little bigger I'd order a few more.”
Despite the sizing, with a slew of five-star reviews and thousands of satisfied shoppers, this affordable toque is a safe bet for keeping warm this winter.
