One would never take their laptop into the cold wilderness without keeping it warm, protected . . . and safe. Otherwise, those awful words—Error Message—will flash incessantly, and the thing just stops.
The body’s computer—now known as the iBrain?—needs warmth, too, lest it flash its warning notes trail addicts will recognize as bonks; as in, “I was snowshoeing along to beat-the-band, and suddenly I got cold and just bonked.” The message becomes recognizable quickly, hammer-hits clocking the head like a Pileated Woodpecker boring for food. The feeling
is best described in one word: dreadful. One doesn’t miss a bonking once it comes a conking.
Solve the cold problem with the coolest headgear going, Ergodyne’s N-Ferno Knit Cap. With a fit that is pull-down modern and a size matching all heads, your tenacity for trails and performance will be stimulated by their whole “Be Tenacious” attitude sewn into every stitch.
No more looking like the dufus just discovering the out-of-doors; with this stylized warmer sitting atop your crown, your good-taste score will zoom.
In addition, this ‘boggin for the noggin keeps your brain warm-to-the-max by utilizing an acrylic shell lined with CoolMax. Combined with the heat generated by your “a-thinkin’ head,” it’s like wearing a weightless toaster.
Blending various materials with all of their ergodynamic design skills is a specialty of Ergodyne. The CoolMax layer provides an ultimate performance fabric adding a critical second level of defense against those temperatures working to attack your comfort and ruin your effort. CoolMax whisks away moisture generated by that noggin that’s trying to go soggin,’ by spreading the moisture evenly through the material, allowing for a quicker, effective escape. Plus, it feels comfortably soft keeping you from becoming uncomfortably numb.
One idea for the small labels inside the top of knit toboggan, stitched in as loops: use them as a catch for a strip of Velcro that can then secure the N-Ferno to a loop on your clothing, vest or backpack. That way you’re not stuffing it in a pocket and discovering later that you lost it, right when you need the warmth.
If you get too hot, like when trails turn away from the wind or the sun pops out from cloud cover, simply roll up the sides or lift the N-Ferno slightly to expose the ears; that will defuse heat quickly. The ability to maintain a comfortable warmth in cold conditions by regulating your personal thermostat—zipping and unzipping of clothing, adding and subtracting gloves and hats, taking off and putting on layers when necessary—are keys to success in winter treks.
Ergodyne’s 6819BT N-Ferno Knit cap works perfectly for that role. With its sharp design and fit, you’ll look cool while remaining warm.
