Identical in size, fit and fill to the Original BlackRock Hat this particular version is made with a non-breathable siliconized 20d taffeta weave nylon that is waterproof. Due to our sewn through baffling and construction the hat itself is not waterproof but extremely water resistant.
This hat falls between the Original using DWR coated materials and down fill and our Synthetic fill hat also sporting a siliconized shell. This is our personal favorite for wet conditions as it still retains the ultralight and compressible features of the hat since it's got 950 loft goose down for insulation.
If you plan to hike day after day in the rain, camping multiple nights in damp cold and frosty conditions this material will keep as much moisture out of your hat leaving you with loft that lasts for weeks. If you feel you still need more wet weather protection you should then look at our completely synthetic version of the BlackRock Hat.

For all of our goose down pieces, handwash in warm water using a quality down cleaner such as Nikwax or ReviveX. Rinse well with warm water and squeeze dry. Using a dryer on low heat you can finish drying and fluffing your gear. Using your hands, 'clap' the piece during a dry cycle to break up the down clusters and return the full loft to your gear.
