As you might know, Milwaukee offers a range of workwear – hats, shirts, jackets, vests, heated gloves, and other such products. They recently launched new neck gaiters that can double as face masks.
Now, there’s new style of winter hat, and acrylic cuffed beanie, available in grey (506G) and black (506B).
The new Milwaukee winter hats feature lightweight and flexible acrylic construction, and are designed to be warm and resistant to wind and water absorption. It’s got a flexible rib nit to keep the hat securely and comfortably on your head.
Why Should You Buy This?
I posted about this hat on Instagram last night (Follow us at @ToolGuyd!), and there was an interesting comment.
The hat itself weighs like 2 pounds and is by Far the warmest hat I’ve ever had.
It seems to me that he was perhaps talking about Milwaukee’s other hats, made from a polyester-spandex blend. Those hats, priced at $25, are said to block wind, wick moisture, and provide extra warmth.
With these new Milwaukee hats specifically described as being lightweight and breathable, I’m going to guess that they’re a little lighter and more breathable than Milwaukee’s other hats.
So now, Milwaukee’s cold weather hats include:
- Fleece-lined beanie (can be worn under a hard hat)
- Cuffed beanie – polyester and spandex blend
- Cuffed beanie – knit acrylic fabric
I’d consider the fleece-lined beanie for wearing under a hood or hard hat due to lower bulk, the cuffed beanie for maximum warmth and snug-fitting (given the options here), and the acrylic cuffed beanie as the lowest priced and a presumably lighter weight option.
Which one would you wear?
