North Shore Cap
Lake Superior on the North Shore of Minnesota has been a source of wonder and inspiration for me since my first trip as a child. Some days the lake is still as glass, and on other days, it is powerful with rushing waves. This hat is the perfect companion for a trip to your own favorite lake during the changing weather, as the textured cable panels and folded, ribbed brim will keep you toasty warm.
