Helly Hansen LIFA Beanie (http://www.bradwiegmann.com/apparel/73-apparel/951-helly-hansen-lifa-beanie.html)
I have been wearing the Helly Hansen LIFA beanie to keep my head and ears warm while out fishing.

Great Idea especially for those with less hair on top. I use a toboggan and my camo/ blaze orange neck gaiter (deer hunting accs) for late fall, winter and early spring fishing. Keeps the heat in and cold out especially on boat runs.

A fleece face mask would help seen them in Cabelas and BPS X-mas catalogs.
As for the Mad Hatter cap in the prior post they are $50 from Cabellas. Wished I had kept and tanned all those rabbit kills from my younger years, could saved a few dollars.

Get the polartec balaclava at cabelas. After using this I don't even take my full faced helmet unless the temps are in the 20s. You will feel the coolness against the headwear but the wind wont come thru it, even at 45mph.
And it does not itch either.

Browning makes a cap for waterfowl hunters. The Duck Commander endorses it. Gortex on the outer shell. Wool on the inside. The cap goes all the way down the back of your neck. Wraps around the front of your face. Only eyes and nose exposed. This cap is warm, dry and you won't feel any wind while wearing it. This cap has saved my life on more than one occasion. I liked it so much I bought a spare and bought my brother one as well. Kind of pricey but, worth every penny and then some.

I use a canvas (not leather) version of the Mad Bomber that was about $25 at a surplus store. A GI issue one worked for me in the Korea winters in the early 60's and this one's just about as good.

If you have a army surplus store near by go and get a hat they call a PILE CAP. Covers head, back of neck and wraps around your face with big flaps and it doesn't cost much. I must have had at least 3 our 4 over the years. Picked up my first one when I was in basic training. STEVE
