Cap your dome.
When cold weather hits, we have a very definite order in which body parts receive extra protection. Hands are always first, followed by toes, arms, and head. Regarding the head, it usually takes some pretty chilly conditions to warrant a balaclava, but we do like the option of strategically covering up, so the Louis Garneau Matrix 2.0 Hat is often amongst the first bits of winter kit that we pull out of the closet.
Its Matrix 2.0 fabric is laid out in different zones to offer protection from the cold air and breathability to keep you comfortable. It stretches and conforms so you can pull it on easily but it still covers snugly with no extra bulk. The 4-way stretch knit reduces chafing by keeping seams to a minimum, and the grey and black color scheme and understated logo on the forehead mean you won't look like a rolling billboard. In the event that the weather might swing several degrees in either direction during your ride, you can pair it with Louis Garneau's matching Matrix 2.0 Neck Warmer to provide the protection you need without overheating.
The Louis Garneau Matrix 2.0 Hat is available in one size in the color Black.

Winter Riding Essential
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fits great under a helmet. Super thin but also very warm.
Feels Good, Fits Good
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Feels good and fits snug but not to tight. Worn it twice now and have forgotten it was on my head. Good for when it's cool.
