Mouton Hat Reviews
We have had a LOT of feedback on this Hat. Here are a few, including a pretty cool (sorry for a bad pun) one from the US Army (unofficial) who tested it under some truly extreme conditions.
February 2015, from Kelley Nelson in WeatherWool’s home state of New Jersey:
Thanks, Alex - This is actually the third mouton hat I've bought! I got one for my dad, kept one for myself and my wife just asked if I could get one for my father-in law. I need an update from my dad about his hat, but I can say I've been really happy with mine and I'll definitely be using it over the next couple days as we get single-digit temps again.
My AAJ has been getting regular use as well. I can use it with a 400g Woolpower sweater under it as temps dictate and it has a huge range of usability. It’s comfortable, functional and durable - I see myself using it for many years to come! Keep up the good work.
November 2014, from Dwight Smith of Michigan:
Variant weather for my recent hunt for whitetail in up north Michigan. As I sat with cold north wind in my face on 25 degree morning in the AAJ and Mouton Hat waiting for the trophy or at least something that would allow me to feed my family of 5 to walk by, I was snug as a bug in a rug. I sat for 12 hours still. I stayed warm with a few mid layers (no wind penetration). I could have stayed longer, but the sun told me it was time to get down. A couple days later it was a high of 53 with rain and wind gusts around 17mph and I dropped a couple mid layers and the Mouton Hat and was equally as comfortable. I highly recommend this as I have been using various garments from all major sporting stores for the past 7 years and have finally found the perfect assembly. I was concerned the rain with the wool would create a scent, but to my surprise, it was minimal and undetected when I stalked and got within 60 yards of a buck on day 4 of my hunt. The squirrels chirped and the deer got up and walked away...probably thinking not today buddy. Will have to bring nuts to keep the squirrels quiet next time. I can't wait to try out the Boonie Hat with the big brim. Thanks again WeatherWool for keeping me warm and dry in the up north cold and wet weather. Will keep you posted on late season January hunt in Ohio. I don't want to mention how much money I have spent on trying to find the perfect blend. Yours takes the cake. It really does a great job from below freezing to various degrees above. I'm very thankful and feel fortunate I found you guys.
