What is a thermal hat?
Men's winter hats are often seen as desirable cold weather clothing items designed to help the wearer retain their body heat by trapping warm air close to the body and reducing exposure of skin around the head and ears. These hats come in a range of styles and colours, and the thermal fabric that these hats are made from insulate to reduce heat loss from your skin.
What are the benefits of wearing a thermal hat?
Wearing a thermal hat during winter months helps to conserve warmth that your body would otherwise lose through your head. This process of heat conservation is a great way to protect yourself against unpleasant weather. There are a range of additional benefits of wearing a thermal hat:
Sweat wicking traits
Thermal hats are not only designed to keep you warm but also contain moisture wicking properties. This is extremely beneficial as sweat, if left wet on the skin can contribute to making you feel colder.
Ease of movement
Wearing multiple layers may make you feel just as warm as wearing thermals, however, as thermals provide the same amount of heat in only one layer, you don’t have the bulk and inconvenience of wearing all this additional clothing.
The moisture control as well as the elasticity of thermal clothing makes staying warm a bit more comfortable. The lightweight nature of thermal insulation ensures you do not feel restricted or weighed down during outdoor activity. If you are a fan of skiing, hiking, mountaineering or backpacking, thermals are essential. Thermal hats also fit under most hoods and helmets!
Do Beanies actually keep you warm?
Beanie hats are considered best sellers as they come in stylish colours and will keep you warm by blocking wind from your head and neck. The best way to stay warm during winter is with a lightweight, breathable hat. A snug fit helps keep this essential outerwear piece comfortable against skin without being too bulky so it won't interfere with comfort and movement when going about different tasks.
Are thermal hats good for sports?
Thermal hats are great for sports because they keep the head warm during cold weather. This helps with circulatory health and respiratory function, both essential during physical exertion. A cold head triggers a response in the nervous system that redirects blood away from your hands and feet in an effort to preserve core temperatures. It is therefore extremely important to keep your head warm during outdoor sports.
Made of lightweight, soft material that keeps your head warm and cosy while wicking away moisture to prevent overheating or getting sweaty; thermals can keep you comfortable in chilly conditions with breathable fabrics that are easily washed and quickly dry off after use.
How do you clean a mens thermal hat?
This depends on the material the thermal hat is made from. Generally, if it is an acrylic or wool style, you can machine wash the mens winter hats like any other delicate clothing item. If the thermal hat is very dirty from continuous use or strenuous exercise then you may want to scrub the hat by hand to start with using hot soapy water before putting it through a delicate wash.
It is important that once your thermal hat has been thoroughly washed it is removed from the washing machine immediately so that it doesn't re-soak in water. To properly dry your thermal hat after washing, hang it up to air dry in a warm but well ventilated area. You want to ensure the hat is fully dry before storing it away or re-wearing to preserve its effectiveness and longevity.
