The Umpqua Hat is the perfect companion for those early morning or evening hikes and also keeps you toasty warm while you stoke up the campfire for your morning coffee! This hat was designed by Caitlin Hunter to be a rugged and striking addition to your outdoor adventure wardrobe. Shown here in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, a somewhat rustic yet soft and lofty yarn, it’s light enough to pop into any pack! We especially love how Caitlin paired the marled main color, Caribou, with the rich, deep contrast colors of Embers and Pumpernickel; but with 40 colorways available, we are eager to see what combination you’ll choose!
