Whether at a bustling café table with a good book or bivouacking out past the furthest city lights, Rocero has you covered. This bold statement piece is ready to meet you where you’re at with options for an insulated, triple-layered brim for snowbound adventure or a double-layered watchcap brim for brisk nights in your own backyard. Quarry’s plush Targhee-Columbia American wool emphasizes Rocero’s larger-than-life texture, gathering delightfully at the crown for a toque that literally stands on its own.
