In the field
A no-nonsense bobble hat from a brand born and raised on the edge of the Peak District in oft-chilly northern England, the Rab Braid Beanie does exactly what it promises, keeping your ears and bonce nice and toasty while you’re out and about, whether you’re walking or at the crag belaying for a friend.
Obviously, being a bobble design, it won’t fit beneath a helmet, and makes wearers seem slightly gnomish if they opt to put a hood over the top of it. Generally, though, it looks and feels fantastic whether worn après snow sports to a ski chalet bar, out on the trails for a pre-pub walk.
