I grew up in the shadow of the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge. When winter snow fell all the kids in the neighborhood would challenge each other to sled races down Squib Hill on our sleds, be they flexible flyers, garbage can lids, or just big pieces of cardboard. Squib Hill was terrifyingly steep, and when you went fast the wind whipping up from the waterfront was brutal, so anyone who wanted to sled had to have a warm hat. The double brim of the Squib Hill Hat will keep your ears warm while sledding or just commuting back and forth to work.

This unisex hat comes in 5 sizes from Extra Small (Toddler) to Extra Large (Men’s)
