There's no better way to keep your noggin warm in the wintertime than by bundling up in a cozy beanie. Sure, you don't
actually lose half of your body heat through your head ( it's actually about 7% to 10%), but when you're wandering around outside in freezing cold weather, it sure can feel like it. Plus, winter hats look cute and make great accessories to your cold-weather wardrobe. The best winter hats for women offer a combination of warmth, comfort, and style.
In order to help you connect with a hat that fits your style and is compatible with the climate you live in, I've done the research and read through countless reviews to put together a list of the best women's hats on Amazon. I made sure to include a wide variety of styles, warmth levels, and price ranges. I also looked for options that are popular among reviewers and made with soft, cozy fabrics, like fleece and faux fur. All of my picks either come in multiple sizes or have stretchy material to adapt to most heads.
Whether you're shopping for yourself or looking for the perfect gift, my list below of the
best winter hats for women is sure to have something for everyone. 1 These Cute Animal-Pattern Hats With Unicorns, Cats, Foxes, & More
Designed with your choice of cute, colorful animal pattern, this option is one of the
warmest winter hats on my list, yet it also earns all the style points. With a cuffed brim and fluffy pom on top, it practically screams "winter wonderland" (even before you factor in the 17 winter-themed patterns, including foxes, penguins, and unicorns). Made from soft, 100% acrylic fabric, it's super comfortable to wear, too. Promising Amazon review: "I love these Kavu beanies. The fit is just right for my noggin, and the designs are perhaps their best feature! I own 4 now!" 2 A Slouchy Knit Beanie With Warm Polar Fleece Lining
Constructed with a cozy thermal knit wool shell, this
multicolored winter hat offers an excellent combination of warmth, comfort, and breathability. Tailored with a chic, slouchy beanie style, it features 100% soft-spun polyester that's stretchy and flexible. On top of that, the interior boasts a polar fleece liner that adds extra cold weather protection to the mix. And it even comes in your choice of colors from black to pink to marled gray. Promising Amazon review: "Great well made beanie hat. Keeps your head warm when it’s bitterly cold out. Very impressed by overall quality & fit." 3 A Furry Hat That's Made For The Extreme Cold
If you're looking for an
extreme cold weather hat, Fjallraven's Nordic Heater hat is one of the warmest options you'll find. Designed specifically for cold climates, the high-end performance hat also boasts a windproof and waterproof exterior. It's also equipped with soft faux fur lining and ear flaps that can be buckled under the chin or folded up and buttoned in place. This selection is a bit pricier than the others, but it's definitely worth it if you'll be contending with extra cold weather. It comes in four different sizes for a perfect fit, plus your choice of four colors. Promising Amazon review: "Tested finally in the mountains and it is first class. Very very nice warm hat. Fur can get down into your eyes a little but brushes back with the hand very well. Very, very, very warm. [...] Did I say warm?" 4 A Fitted Beanie That's Made For People Who Sweat A Lot
If you tend to get sweaty under your hat, this
moisture-wicking beanie is made with performance polyester that pulls sweat to the surface of the fabric, keeping you comfortable and dry. The fabric is thin enough to work as a base layer, although many fans of the hat wear it on its own. It's especially great if you're someone who exercises outside during the winter, as one reviewer noted: "It's very lightweight, so it's comfortable running, but I also like to use it under bike and motorcycle helmets to keep them clean." It comes in one size that's designed to fit most heads. Promising Amazon review: "Love the way they wick the sweat and keep you warm. Best running hat ever!" 5 A Budget-Friendly Fleece-Lined Hat That's Soft & Comfy
budget hat for women is made with soft-spun acrylic fiber on the outside and cozy fleece lining on the inside. The material is super stretchy, with high elasticity and a patterned cable-knit weave. "I received this item in 1 day (yay Prime!)," wrote one customer, "I wore it out that same night for a bonfire in 30 degree weather. My head was not at all cold. The hat fit perfectly, snug over my ears and all around my noggin [...] I LOVE this beanie!!" It's warm and stylish yet also comes at an unbeatable price. Promising Amazon review: "Super warm and cozy beanies. Bought for a winter trip and they kept my head nice and toasty. Great price too!" 6 This Genius Ponytail Hat That Come In Tons Of Different Patterns
If you like to wear ponytails or buns but hate how they always get smooshed down by your hat, this clever
ponytail beanie is the perfect solution. It allows you to bring your hair through a small hole at the top that doesn't compromise warmth. This hat is soft and cozy, with 100% acrylic material that reviewers attest is soft and stretchy. Plus, it looks cute even if you opt to wear it without a ponytail or bun. The innovative hat is available in dozens of colors and patterns including checkered, leopard, metallic, and burgundy. Promising Amazon review: "It was as nice as I'd hoped for. The colors of the dyed yarns are rich in color. The feel is soft, the stretch is just right. I enjoy this beanie and all my hair has a place to go." 7 This Lightweight Puffy Hat That's Made With Real Goose Down
This incredibly warm, insulated hat is one of the
best winter beanies by far, not only because it traps heat so well but because it feels exceptionally cozy, too. The lightweight cap is essentially a puffy jacket for your heard — it has real goose down feathers inside with 650 fill power, and the outside is made of durable, snag-proof nylon. While this hat doesn't have a lot of stretch, it does come in two sizes so you can find the right fit. Plus, it packs down smaller than the size of your fist. Promising Amazon review: "Used for lightweight camping during the winter and it rocked. Extremely lightweight, warm as hell, and packs down to the smallest size you can think. Awesome product."
