Men's Winter Hats
Winter Men's Hats for Cool Guys!
I know how hard it is to find a hat with sex appeal! A hat that makes you look cool and yet keeps you warm. Men's winter hats come in all shapes and sizes and the one you choose matters! It's notoriously difficult to buy a hat as a gift, and so it may be better to choose gloves or a scarf!
When it's cold outside we search the back of our drawers hoping to find a warm hat that isn't going to make us look like total dorks!
My wife has often stopped short in her steps, looked at me and howled with laughter because of my hat, or begged me to take it off before we went into the next shop, or bank, or anywhere - why? Because I looked ridiculous!
So I got to thinking that adventure travelers need to look cool right? But they also have to keep warm! So how do you know which hat to choose? Here's where my hub will come in very handy.
That's it folks, simple, this page is about winter hats for men! So you'd be advised to have a look here before buying.
Winter Hat Options.. - Looking Cool and Staying Warm ! This is great advice.
Does a Hat Really Keep You Warm?
Probably the biggest myth that folk believe is that you lose more heat from your head than elsewhere. But in fact your head is no different from any other part of your body.
Inevitably, whatever comes in to contact with cold air, icy rain, or snow is going to become cold. That’s why we are sensible enough to cover our bodies with clothing. If we went around stripped to the waist, but wearing a hat we’d still become pretty cold.
You do obviously need to wear a hat in the cold weather because it is one way of helping to keep your whole body warm – just like wearing trousers, gloves or a scarf.
So what happens to your body when it is cold?
When the weather’s cold, your body senses this and your brain takes a few measures to protect you or at least to protect your vital organs, because if they fail will die.
Your hands and feet are expendable in comparison to a vital organ, so the brain orders the blood vessels in these expendable areas to become narrower and give off less heat. That’s why you can look pale and your fingers can turn white when you are really cold.
Another amazing thing your body does to keep itself warm is shiver. If you start to feel cold inside you will start to shiver in order to get some movement into your muscles to warm them up.
If you cover your head properly that will keep your head warm. If you aren’t losing heat from your head your whole body will be warmer and the brain won’t have to close down the blood vessels in your fingers.
Keep everything covered, including your head, and you’ll be warm on the coldest winter day.
Remember, there is no such thing as bad weather just inappropriate clothing!

Does Your Hat work for You?
My wife's dad wore a hat, but not to keep out the cold, it was an indoor hat. It was a very tall white hat that had to be starched into shape. He was a chef.
I was wondering how many of you wear a hat at work as part of a uniform maybe.
Please leave and comment if you do and tell us what work you do. Do you think it suits you? What is it for? And do you like wearing it?
