Combat the Cold: Winter Beanies / e4hats.com Blog | winter hats | Scoop.it
There is no wrong way to wear a beanie.Beanie Season is upon UsWhen you start to think about picking up a new beanie for the winter, you would think you would only have a few to choose from. A beanie is a beanie right? You would be wrong, there are actually several different style of beanies all suited for different people, hairstyles, activities, personal styles, and weather. This guide will briefly explain each type of beanie available and you can more easily find the type of beanie that is right for you.The most important thing to remember is that while there are suggestions on how to wear a beanie, there is no wrong way to wear a beanie.Cuff less BeanieA cuff less beanie, also known as a short beanie doesn’t have the added material of a cuff beanie and fits directly on top of the wearer’s head. The edge of the beanie usually reached the top of the forehead. Some of these beanies are on the thinner side so these are best worn in more temperate weather and not in extreme cold. This beanie style is a more casual beanie style that can be worn all year round. Some of these types of beanies are embroidered with designs, logos, text, and seasonal images. See some cuff less beanies for yourself.Cuffed BeanieA cuffed beanie, also known as a long beanie, is a more versatile, warmer version of a cuff less beanie. The added cuff is there to cover the forehead and your ears. This cuffed can be pulled up or worn down depending on the wearer. The extra warmth is perfect for the more harsh winter months and can give your head total warmth coverage. If you are more sensitive to cold then this is the beanie option for you. Take a look some cuffed beanie styles here. Ear Flap BeanieFor even more additional warmth you can wear an ear flap beanie. These beanies feature extra ear flaps that full cover your ears. The flaps can be found in a variety of different sizes and lengths.  Some of the flap beanies even have straps that can be adjusted to ensure the perfect fit. These beanies are worn mostly by children but can be worn by adults as well. Take a look at this fun and unique beanie style.Visor BeanieA visor beanie, also referred to as a brimmed beanie combines the bill of a ball cap with comfort of a beanie. These are perfect for snowboarders and skiers because the bill keeps the sun out of their eyes on the slopes. This beanie type is also versatile and can be worn all year round due to the light breathable fabric typically used. You can even find slouch beanies with a brim. They offer more space in the crown to wear with dreads, longer hair or just to offer the wearer a unique sense of style.Ski MaskA ski mask can be worn for more than just robberies. There are several styles of ski mask out there all with its own style and function. Whether you are looking for a traditional three-hole ski mask, one-hole or hunting style ski mask, there are options available to you. See for yourself truly how many types of ski masks there are on the market today here.Animal BeaniesA new fun style of beanie available is the animal beanie. These beanies feature several fun animal designs. These beanies have long extended ears for added warmth as well as gloves on the end of the ears to keep your hands warm too. There are bears, giraffe, alligators, bunnies, elephants, cats and many more animals to choose from. This is a great option for children and even for adults looking for a lighthearted approach to winter warmth.Knitted BeaniesThe last beanie style is the knitted beanie. These are also known as homemade beanies because they give that homemade loose knit look that people love. They are usually constructed of wool, fleece, yarn and other thread types. These are usually thick beanies and are a great addition to your winter arsenal. These are just like the ones that Grandma made, except with a slightly more modern styling. Many knit beanies feature unique patterns and design perfect for ski and snowboard season. If I had to pick my favorite beanie style, this would be it.While going to these lengths might be overkill winter protection is super important.Stay Safe this WinterAn awesome winter beanie is not only worn for style, not wearing the proper cold protective gear can put your health at risk. There is actually a science to body heat loss. It is so important to make sure to keep your children, your family, and yourself protected from extreme weather conditions.The Science of WarmthStaying warm on a cold winter day sounds simple right? Put on a jacket, throw on some winter gloves, and you are ready to face the elements. There actually is a science to why your body becomes cold. There are four ways that your body loses warmth. The first is called radiative heat loss. This is when your body loses warmth due to a lack of insulation, or the lack of a jacket or sweatshirt. The second way your body loses heat is through convective heat loss, in this method wind draws heat away from your body via exposed skin. The third way is conductive heat loss. This happens when you make direct contact with cold surfaces or liquids. The last way your body loses heat is due to evaporative cooling. When your perspiration evaporates this takes body heat with it, making your feel cooler. The proper outerwear including women's scarves can combat these types of heat loss. A properly insulated jacket, thick comfortable ski gloves, and a warm beanie can make a huge difference in keeping you protected from cold weather. Talk nerdy to me: These are a few ways heat can leave your body in winter.Wind Chill is not ChillThere are three very important cold winter dangers that most often overlook. The first is wind chill factor. Wind chill factor can sometimes add up to 15-20 degrees in cooling and can be very dangerous if you are not wearing the proper outerwear, or winter beanie. The second danger is of course hypothermia. The human body is a wonderful resilient thing. However, it cannot reach low temperatures without shutting down.Fast action can save someone's life. HypothermiaHypothermia is a very serious and very dangerous situation. When diagnosing hypothermia look for these symptoms and warning signs:Person is experiencing confusion or memory loss.The person is experiencing a drop in body temperature down to 95 degrees.Experiencing exhaustion or drowsiness.Loss of consciousness.The individual has numb hands and feet.Exhibiting shallow breathing patterns.Visible shivering.Quick treatment can make a difference:Restore warmth slowly, not rapidly.Get the person indoors.Remove wet clothing if needed.Do not warm hands and feet first. Doing so can result in shock.Blankets work best to slowly warm the body.Do not submerge the person in warm water, this can cause arrhythmia.Feed the person a warm drink but not caffeine or alcohol.Once body heat is up keep it up until you can take the person to the hospital for further treatment.The last danger is frostbite. Frostbite can cause permanent damage and hypothermia can lead to frostbite if you are not careful. Frostbite photos can be quite graphic so I won’t post any here but you can look up pictures for yourself.You can find these winter items and more by clicking this link.

A Season of Style: Top Ten 2014 Winter Trends / e4hats.com Blog

A Season of Style: Top Ten 2014 Winter Trends / e4hats.com Blog | winter hats | Scoop.it
Winter is here, are you ready.Fashion can be one of the most polarizing topics among people all over the world. Who truly decides what becomes the next trendy winter hat? Is it celebrities? Could it be fashion designers? Do you just follow what the advertisers tell you? If you are just a regular Joe like myself, wading through the noise to get a simple yet striking style, can be a monumental undertaking. I have scoured the internet to put together a simple layman's guide for busy men and women so you can stay ahead of the fashion trends that matter to you. Number One: Slouchy BeanieThere is a style of beanies out there that has been around for a very long time but is still somehow relatively unknown. That is the slouchy beanie. A slouchy beanie is not worn like a traditional beanie but has more space in the crown and is also worn more towards the back of your head. This beanie is great to wear in more temperate climates like California where "cold", really isn't that cold. This is a great new take on the traditional beanie. Check out some of the great ways to wear this versatile beanie below.    Number 2: The Infinity ScarfThe "infinity scarf" also known as a snood scarf is a style that I only recently became aware of. The best way to describe this style is that it is a super long scarf that is wrapped around your neck repeatedly. It has a bunched up but stylish look that has been worn by both men and women, and stars and starlets. If you are looking to turn heads while staying warm this winter, then this is the scarf for you. It can be worn with a wide variety of outfits and can be found in several different styles. Take a look here at some awesome infinity scarves available. Number 3: Flip Top Gloves Sometimes you want your fingers protected and other times you want to let those fingers roam. That is the beauty of flip top gloves. These versatile gloves can be worn as mittens but can also be converted into fingerless gloves. Like most men, I really hate making simple decisions. While they won't help me decide what food to eat for dinner, or what to do on a Saturday night, they can help be decide between gloves and mittens. It truly is the best of both hand accessory worlds. Number 4: Santa HatsThe Santa hat. One of the most iconic hats worn in December since the birth of Christ(Slight embellishment) is still as popular as ever. You can't walk a block without seeing somebody sporting one of these fun hats. They are not just fun for kids. Casually wearing Santa hats has actually been widely accepted for adults both at work and at play. Number 5: The Ugly SweaterAhhh, the ugly sweater, one of my most favorite things about the holiday season. Gone are the days of flipping through the racks at the Goodwill to find the most perfect ugly sweater. The ugly sweaters of today are actually designed to be ugly, on purpose. I don't know if they are hipster, or fashionable or what have you, I just love them. You better shop for one soon before they only have the pretty ones left. Number 6: Trooper and Trapper HatsThe next one on the list is the trooper and trapper hat. This is my personal favorite on this list. If you have not ever worn a trooper hat it is easily the most comfortable hat in existence today. With the fur lining and the long ear flaps, it is an integral part of the winter wardrobe. Not many outdoor excursions should take place without this trusted cranial companion. Number 7: Animal Beanie HatsAnimal beanie hats is a style that really picked up steam last year and continues to be a fun way to stay warm and have fun for both kids and adults alike. That trend looks like it will continue, as you can even find these types of hats on the shelf of your local 7 Eleven stores. When you see it at 7 Eleven you know it has hit the mainstream. These hats also come with mitten paws attached for added warmth and whimsy. Most of the MVP's of the animal kingdom can be found including pandas, monkeys, dogs, tigers, and even frogs. Number 8: Ski MaskSki and snow season is here. Now skiing and snowboarding is nothing new, and people have been hitting the slopes for decades now, but the gear has changed. Enter the neoprene ski mask. There are hundreds of cool designs out there for every person and every personality. Whether you are a winter bad boy and skulls are your thing you can find that. If you are more on the nerdy side you will find Transformers, and Hannibal designs. For the hipster (most might never admit it) you can find mustache designed face masks all across god's green internet. Number 9: Corduroy EverythingCorduroy is making a comeback (I never thought I would ever write that). Believe I was just as surprised as you, in finding out. Alas, the Prince of texture, the sultan of swag, and the king of casual is making it's triumphant return to the world of fashion. Corduroy hats, pants, bags, purses, children's clothes, high fashion apparel, and so many other bits of fashion are creeping back in style. Corduroy has always been the "Little Engine that Could" but it not only can it is, and it can be found all throughout popular fashion today. Number 10: The Watch is Back in StyleMany people have a love, hate relationship with a watch. Believe me, for the first 24 years of my life, the last thing I would ever be asking for this Christmas would be a watch. Flash forward to today, the watch has become an integral part of my daily fashion repertoire. It seems like I am not only in my new found appreciation for the watch. Both men and women are wearing watches more and more, and most are doing for for the fashion benefits and not to become more punctual.

So Much Snow, So Little Time: Ski and Snowboarding Guide / e4hats.com Blog

So Much Snow, So Little Time: Ski and Snowboarding Guide / e4hats.com Blog | winter hats | Scoop.it
Snow season is here, grab your gear, grab a lift ticket and let's go.2014-2015 Snow Season is HereThe most glorious part of the year is now finally upon us...ski and snowboarding season. There is only so much time to take advantage of that majestic white powdery goodness. We are putting together this guide to help you find the best gear, the best slopes, and easy places to purchase lift tickets. I know from personal experience that skiing and snowboarding can be a pretty expensive hobby, so saving money while tearing up powder is a great added bonus.The Gear     Ski and Snow EssentialsNothing beats the feeling of brand new gear for a brand new season. Brand new gear actually isn't that expensive as long as you know where to shop. The first ingredient of a killer winter wardrobe is a ski face mask.Essential #1: Ski/Face MaskWhen it comes to choosing the perfect face mask, there are three basic options that you will come across:Balaclava Ski Mask: These masks cover your entire head and usually are available in either three-hole or one-hole designs based on your personal preferences.Full Face Neoprene Mask: The second option you have available to you is a full face neoprene mask. These do not cover your entire head like a traditional ski mask or balaclava. The material might look thin but these face masks pack a warm punch. Half Face Ski Mask: The last option you have is the half face mask. These masks only cover up the lower half of your face up to your nose. Wearing this in conjunction with a great pair of goggles is my personal preference.Each type of face mask has it's own pros and cons based on the individual and based on personal tastes. There are hundreds of great styles and designs out there, you should have no problem finding the perfect accessory.Winter Essential #2: Ski GlovesIt doesn't take a scientist to figure out that snow is cold, really cold, everyone knows that. However, what many people are not aware of is that much on your body's warmth escapes via your head, as well as you appendages like hands and feet. A great pair of ski gloves not only looks great but can keep your body heat up. The gloves also protect you from physical contact with the ice and snow which can actually cause burns if you are not careful. For more casual winter excursions off the slopes you will find flip top gloves which can change from mittens to fingerless gloves and back again.Winter Essential #3: Beanie/Trooper Hat    The last winter essential is a beanie or trooper hat. Most people know what a beanie is, it is probably the second most popular hat type aside from a baseball cap. What some are unaware of, is a little hat called a trooper hat. In my opinion a trooper hat is one of the most comfortable hats I have ever worn. It is basically a super comfortable beanie that has ear flaps as well as soft fur lining. Another variation of this hat I also love is a trapper hat. This hat combines the versatility of a ball cap with the comfort of a beanie or ear muffs.Top 5 Mountains You Must Ride Ski ColoradoColorado is known as one of the premier locales for skiing and snowboarding. Colorado is just a beautiful place to begin with. The fantastic snow is just an added bonus. Check out the website below for information about season passes, travel packages, and other slope information.http://www.coloradoski.com/ Ski UtahUtah has a reputation of being the land of the Mormon's. However, there is actually some great downhill action to be had here. This is a great place for beginners, experts, and even families. There are so many runs to choose from and while I have not had the opportunity to experience all that Utah snow season has to offer, it remains one of the premier winter destinations. Visit the Ski Utah website below for more information.http://www.skiutah.com/ Ski VermontVermont...I never knew Vermont was a top tier ski and snowboard locale. However, after a little research, I am dangerously close to booking a flight. With three big mountains to explore, there is truly something sweet for skiers and snowboarders of all ages and experience levels. Click the link below for more information.http://skivermont.com/ Ski Snow SummitBeing a Californian for my entire life, Snow Summit has been the go-to spot for most of Southern California. Featuring both natural and man-made snow, a great day on the slopes is more affordable than you might think. Check out the link below for season start times, life tickets, and season passes.http://www.snowsummit.com/ski/ Ski Mammoth MountainWhat I might consider, the Holy Grail of snowboard and ski hotspots is Mammoth Mountain. This mountain offers some of the most fantastic sights, and some of the smoothest rides. Check out the Mammoth website for more information about season times, lift tickets, and 3 month passes.http://www.mammothmountain.com/
